Obama to OWS: "Suckers!"

I alluded to a HuffPo story in this morning's column, but it deserves a slightly fuller treatment. Here's the meat:

President Obama's campaign manager has a message for Wall Street: This time around, we'll lay off.

Jim Messina, Obama's campaign manager, told the hosts of a $38,500 per-plate fundraiser geared towards investment bankers and hedge fund managers that the president wouldn't make Wall Street look bad during his re-election campaign, Bloomberg reports. The assurance follows Obama's call to raise taxes on the rich in his latest budget proposal.

The current attempt at appeasement also comes as Obama attempts to win back the donors that provided him with so much last election.

Off course Obama will go easy on Wall Street. That's where the money is.
