Hard to believe, isn’t it? You get trashed on a daily basis, demonized by the socialists, the media and union goons, and there’s actual surprise when you don’t line up like lemmings to pony up cash for the people who hate you and want to ruin you. But look at the bright side, Democrats. You still have empty heads like Sarah Jessica Parker on your side.
Wall Street bigs snubbed President Obama last night at a big-bucks campaign fund-raiser at The St. Regis hotel in Midtown.
The gala — where tickets went for as much as $50,000 a couple and whose proceeds were going to Democratic candidates — featured stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Democratic Party regulars but few, if any, executives from the city’s leading financial institutions.
That was no accident, according to Democrats on Capitol Hill and Wall Street sources who say those in the financial industry are tired of being the punching bag for Obama and Democrats crafting legislation to tightly regulate them.
“They may support individuals, but not the party,” one House Democratic lawmaker said.
“I think there’s been some pushback from the [financial] community.”
Other Democrats said that, indeed, Wall Street money has dried up for the party, and an official from one of the major investment firms confirmed that its people were staying away from The St. Regis.
“We won’t be attending,” the official said.
