On Monday (Feb 7th) the New York Times (aka “The Paper of Record”) published an endearingly (if not intentionally) honest piece about Wall Street’s attempts to stop Obama’s “attacks” on Big Business (yes, dear reader, we too were left wondering “this is attacking???”).

In case this wasn’t clear enough, Kelly S King, a major-league lobbyist spells things out with delicious tactfulness:

“If the president doesn’t become a little more balanced and centrist in his approach, then he will likely lose that support,”

One isn’t surprised of course, merely amused by the unbridled candour of it all…
