Mitt Romney joins Obama and Bush as the Wall Street presidential candidates

New campaign contribution records out show that Mitt Romney is the primary presidential candidate to be receiving donations from Wall Street and banking interests for the 2012 election.  He joins Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who in 2004 and 2008 respectively received similar contributions from the banking machine.

As you can see, it doesn't matter which poltical party a candidate is tied to... Wall Street ALWAYS hedges its bets.
