    Yes, I seen on the internet that Goldman Sacs is Romney biggest contributor. By the way have you heard that Romney was born in Mexico and a lot of his family members still resides there!

    Romney is a Democrat at heart. A wolf in sheep's clothing.

    Does it matter which candidate they support? After all, "Obama's" bailout was first conceived by the outgoing Bush and Bernanke. Regardless the candidate or the Party, they all seem to bow to the corporate dollar.

    You may be right, but GS is still his largest contributor, according to opensecrets website. It is interesting that GS and others contributed more money to democrats than republicans, but they do cover all their bases.

    Of course he's not. Anti-christ (in Greek, the "instead of christ") is Satan, the devil, Lucifer, that old serpent, currently being held in heaven by the archangel Michael until that time he is released to come to earth, where he will heal a "deadly wound" to one of our systems (educational, religious, financial, or political) and sit in the throne of God in Jerusalem claiming to be Jesus. Oh he can perform miracles and will deceive many, but when he speaks he sounds like a dragon. It's surprising how few people know what the Bible actually teaches. It is God's letter to His children, and is written so that even a child can understand it. Many deceivers would have you believe otherwise.

    Oh sure bible has much to do about nothing. It was ,mostly written fro here say and legends. The written word was not invented during most of the events in bible. Then as the years go on it is re- written by whatever powers control at the time. .

    I do not beleive M.R. run for president is backed by them ,if so they would have not picked someone as wealthy as he is to run,it would have been someone with much less money than he has they could control,yes he is tough & a astute business man but it does worry me WHY he wants to be president,the only thing I can come up with is to many business's
    are leaving the U.S. & that hurt's our country & his businesses as a whole I am all for keeping work [companies] in the U.S. & strengthen our own country,instead of being nursemaid to others. To many worry about the fact he's rich I believe in the U.S. dream we can all be what we want,THE AMERICAN DREAM can still live on,it does not get handed to you you must work for it.

    Understand. idoit, these are people who contribute to BOTH parties so that no matter who wins they win. They are listed on OpenSecrets.org page of Heavy Hitters page (http://www.opensecrets.org/o... as "On the fence" that give "Between 40% and 59% to both parties". That is what makes this atempt to smear Romney meaningless because ith just a few mouse clicks one can go to OpenSecrets.org's Heavy hitters page, and click on names on that page, then look at the "Top Recipients, 2011-2012" graph on that page or click on the "and then click on the "...view more Recipients" link to bring up their "All Recipients" page to get a nice list of all they contributed too. Ergo, it is meaningless to try to smear anyone with these "On the fence" heavy contributors that are also banks because with a few mouse clicks, it can be proved thatthey also finance Obama's campaign too.

    You think I'm kidding? well here is a list of the Persidental candidates they contributed to so far in this 2012 presidental campaign season. Prepare for a shock, Obama's name appears quite often on the list of recipants of these banks who contribute to the candidates. These are all verifiable facts as of this date January 28, 2012.

    First off, if you know how to link directly to the page that lists Romney's top contributors, then do so. Your link didn't work either. Secondly, I didn't "sling any mud" at Romney. I simply listed his top three contributors in my twenty-eight word post.
    Thirdly, you may want to check the top politicians that received money from Goldman Sachs in 2011-2012.

    I know all that, but it you had noticed that I had listed only the Presidental candidates of the this 2012 election and Obama's 2008 election. If I had wanted to get really nasty, I could have listed every person of both parties that Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group and Morgan Stanley huad donated to in this election and how much each presidental candidate of the 2008 election. Oh yes, Obama, Clinton, Biden, McCain, Romney they are alll there, john Edwards and Speaker of former The house Nancy Pelosi too. That is what you get when you talk about On The Fence Heavy Hitter Contributors. and that is why it is useless to compalian about them because they give too both parties. Therefore, no matter who wins, they win. That is how real money plays the game.

    I know all that, but it you had noticed that I had listed only the Presidental candidates of the this 2012 election and Obama's 2008 election. If I had wanted to get really nasty, I could have listed every person of both parties that Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group and Morgan Stanley huad donated to in this election and how much each presidental candidate of the 2008 election. Oh yes, Obama, Clinton, Biden, McCain, Romney they are alll there, john Edwards and Speaker of former The house Nancy Pelosi too. That is what you get when you talk about On The Fence Heavy Hitter Contributors. and that is why it is useless to compalian about them because they give too both parties. Therefore, no matter who wins, they win. That is how real money plays the game.

    Clinton, Hillary (D-NY) $109,250
    Romney, Mitt (R) $77,200
    Giuliani, Rudolph W (R) $60,750

    The total Obama had recieved from the top "On The Fence" heavy hitter contributor Banks in 2007 - 2008 in campaign contributions - at least $4,582,463.
    So far this 2011-2012 election season , Obama recieved $240,686 from those same banks to Romney's $1,146,800 from those same banks. Any Idea why? Obama's economic policy? Recession? Obama's support Occupy Wall Street? Or are they just waiting to see where the wind blows later this year before contributing the heavy cash? My bet is on the last one.

    It was obvious to EVERYBODY that the Democrats were going to win in 2008. That's what the big contributors do - pad the campaigns with whom they believe will win the elections for their own benefit. The fact that Obama got so much money in 2007-2008 is not a surprise.

    But Romney has no chance to win - he advocates reducing capital gains taxes to zero, and the American people are not going to stand for that. He also wants to go back to removing the regulations of the Glass-Stegall Act of '33 that allowed the big banks to become too big to fail, and the American people are not going to stand for that either. He has advocated doing away with Dodd-Frank that restored parts of Glass-Stegall. If the Republicans did that, there would be another economic meltdown in five years or less.

    Mint Raw Money is the richest presidential candidate ever, so he could just use his own money if he so desired.

    Pretty obvious isn't it? They own the Rep Party and most of the media, and Mitten is one of them, while Newt is a "wanna be" insider but not exactly one of them. So, they can play off the two against each other and see who will most firmly commit to their agenda. That is the one who will get the nomination. Is this news to anyone?
