Barack Obama uncovers dirty money in Washington, quickly covers it back up again

Democrats are like Scrooge McDuck, swimming in giant silos of Wall Street money

The Greatest President In History couldn’t pass up an opportunity to give the 148th version of his famous “Fired Up” speech in support of Democratic senatorial candidate Martha Coakley on Sunday. “If you were fired up in the last election,” he droned, “I need you more fired up in this election.”

The President also warned that “Scott Brown is just another typical Republican who sides with special interests instead of average Americans.”

“Martha’s opponent already is walking in lockstep with Washington Republicans,” Obama said, criticizing Brown for opposing his proposed tax on Wall Street. “She’s got your back, her opponent’s got Wall Street’s back. Bankers don’t need another vote in the United States Senate. They’ve got plenty. Where’s yours?”

IHateThe Media.com visited that handy, dandy website Opensecrets.org just to verify Obama’s claims and it turns out he was right. Wall Street and the banks do have a lot of votes in the United States Senate.

It’s just that most of them are Democrats. 14 out of the top 20, in fact, carry that troublesome D after their names.

Here’s a list of the top 20 recipients of Wall Street money for the 2010 cycle (2005-2010):

You forgot to mention that Charlie Crist of Florida is a Republican in the mold of Arlen Specter!
He came out campaigning like a conservative, but must have taken lessons from John McCain on how to act like a RINO.
