Will Clinton turn out to be 'Ms Wall Street' if elected? Seems she's not fooling anyone...

on Wall Street, that is. As one Wall Street lawyer put it, “If it turns out to be Jeb vs. Hillary, we would love that and either outcome would be fine.”

http://www.commondreams.org/views/2015/11/23/who-impugns-hillarys-integrity

Here's an excerpt:

Last year, William D. Cohan, author of Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World, interviewed dozens of Wall Street’s leaders on their reaction to Clinton’s newfound populism: “Down on Wall Street they don’t believe it for a minute. While the finance industry does genuinely hate Warren, the big bankers love Clinton, and by and large they badly want her to be president. Many of the rich and powerful in the financial industry—among them, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman, Tom Nides, a powerful vice chairman at Morgan Stanley, and the heads of JPMorganChase and Bank of America—consider Clinton a pragmatic problem-solver not prone to populist rhetoric. To them, she’s someone who gets the idea that we all benefit if Wall Street and American business thrive. What about her forays into fiery rhetoric? They dismiss it quickly as political maneuvers. None of them think she really means her populism.”

<snip>

Inevitably, the big money going from Wall Street into the Clinton campaign reinforces doubts about the strength of her reform promises. But it isn’t Sanders or O’Malley who impugn her integrity; it is her Wall Street donors themselves. They are sophisticated, cynical and paying attention. And they are confident her new-found populism is a campaign posture, not a real position.

When the crooks come right out and say that they believe her "new-found populism is a campaign posture, not a real position.", why would Democrats back her? She doesn't even do a very good job of pretending to be supportive of the People.

Maybe the answer is here, http://www.democraticunderground.com/127710250

29. To be fair, theoretically her new found populism could be real...

 

of course, theoretically I could be shot at by Bosnian snipers on my way to get the mail this morning.

30. Even her "new found populism" isn't worth much. All of her social justice stands are soft.

 

She doesn't really want to help college students with debt problems. She is willing to lose the left to get support from the right.

Any talk of her cracking down on the Banksters is a joke.

She and Willie love their BIG money and BIG Banksters.

21. You beat me to it!

That was the exact thing I was thinking. From serving on the board of Walmart, to collecting money from their legal friends for Bill's Legal Fund (this was in the 90s in Wash DC - I was at the firm where they held their meetings), to Chelsea marrying her very own investment banker. The family is entrenched in Wall Street.

5. Bernie should use actual quotes from Wall Street.

It's not a negative attack if he quotes the people that believe in and support Hillary.

It's only negative from our perspective. 'Those of us that listen to her rhetoric and know it to be false.

12. He could do that because the article uses names.

A Bernie Sanders ad could go, "What do banking executives expect of Hillary Clinton? Camden Fine, head of the Independent Community Bankers of America, says, “She gonna all of a sudden become Mrs. Wall Street if she’s elected."

24. and bernie disagreed with her both times.

Hillary: We need to go after the shadow banks!

Bernie: We need to go after all the wall st corruption.

guess which statement helps the most?

lmao Hillary in the white house would be like, "look shadow banks, cut it out! see Americans? I'm handling those nasty shadow banks! oh, the big banks? but they're my friendssss!!!"

maybe she can pry some of the Wall Street cash from them to fund some public works projects. Investing in America pays off.

Maybe there should be four or five new threads on this article!

And please, whatvever you do, anyone who starts a new thread needs to be sure to pass this off as some sort of news story and not simply the speculation of the people interviewed . . .

They've accused her of everything else. Fortunately, very few people are buying into it anymore.

25. They remember her 'partnership presidency' with Bill

Its easy to conclude she would come into the Oval Office with the same priorities she has displayed not only during Bill's presidency, but in her role as Senator.

Its a forgone conclusion she is trying to mislead. Just look at her BS response during the last debate, trying to hide behind 9-11.
