Michael Moore: "Wall Street Has Their Man And His Name Is Barack Obama"


Film maker Michael Moore had some harsh words for President Barack Obama on CNN's Piers Morgan. In particular, Moore spoke about Obama's support from the large Wall Street banks. Referencing a report from the Washington Post, he said, "President Obama has now raised more money from Wall Street and the banks for this election cycle than all - than all eight Republicans combined. I don't want to say that, because if that's the truth, that Wall Street already has their man and his name is Barack Obama, then we've got a much bigger problem."

Moore also spoke about the fact that Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) was the number one contributor to Obama's campaign in 2008. Obviously, the fact that Obama talks tough about Wall Street but is supported by the very same banks is a cause for concern for anyone interested in the future of the United States of America. It is good to see that Michael Moore does not appear to be willing to blindly support the President in the face of evidence that he is being financed in large part by "Too Big To Fail."
