Mitt Romney's Top Contributors

Susan Brannon
12 July 2012

Looking that the list below for the top contributors to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, I can't help to wonder why these are the companies that are supporting him.  Actually, it is a bit scary most of them are banks, like the big ones that are known to have caused the mess that we are in like the Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Citigroup and...get this:  the Credit Suisse Group.

The New York Times reported that big named donors  "are descending on Utah’s exclusive Deer Valley resort this weekend for what invitees are calling Republicanpalooza: a two-day retreat featuring Karl Rove, Condoleezza Rice, Jeb Bush and John McCain."  They go on further to explain, "But the highlight for the 700 guests, who either contributed $50,000 or raised $250,000 for the campaign, will be unfettered access to Mr. Romney himself," 

Romney is tied to Wall Street interests as we can see by the donors list.  Do we really want another Wall street guy running our country?  If these guys donated this much, you can bet that they will expect something in return for their buck.  Watch out America...have we not learned anything yet?  My question is:  How did we vote Romney in this far into the game?  What is the matter with the American people?  Did we not learn anything from our 2008 tumble?

Compare the list at the bottom to the donors for Obama:  Obama's donors are educators, and technology such as Microsoft, DLA Piper, Google, UofC and Harvard.  These are the folks that Obama will have to "pay back"  wouldn't we rather have our candidate pay back education and technology that will help to grow our economy for now and our future, rather than those who sit high on wall street?  Think about it.
