Obama loves to bash bankers, CEOs and “Wall Street Fat Cats.” Obama refuses to bash JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon though. When he appeared on The View, he praised JP Morgan and it’s CEO Jamie Dimon as ”one of the smartest bankers we got.” Of course Obama and Dimon kiss each other’s asses because Dimon and JP Morgan is a huge donor to Obama and the Democrats. Jamie Dimon loves Obama because most of the so called Wall Street “fat cats” and CEOs are actually progressive liberal Democrats. And Obama just so happens to have a $1 million “checking account” with JP Morgan. All just amazing coincidence. i’m sure. It seems though that Jamie Dimon and Obama are even better buds than first thought. According to Future Of Capitalism – Jamie Dimon has paid AT LEAST 18 visits to the Obama White House since 2009.
White House visitor access records show at least 18 visits to the White House by Mr. Dimon during the Obama administration. The most recent disclosed visit, according to the visitor access records on the White House site, appears to have been January 21, 2012, when Mr. Dimon, accompanied by his wife Judith and daughters Julia, Kara, and Laura, attended a White House holiday open house.
Mr. Obama’s relationship with Mr. Dimon had been the subject of press scrutiny even before the disclosure of the trading losses. In a January 26, 2010 press briefing, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked, “what sort of message does it send that on Friday the President — last week the President says he’s fighting against Wall Street, but then today he has Jamie Dimon here for lunch as part of the group of six CEOs.”
Mr. Dimon, again accompanied by his wife Judith, was a guest at President Obama’s January 19, 2011, state dinner for the president of China, Hu Jintao. Politico’s Josh Gerstein has reported that in 2010, Mr. Dimon had “a one-on-one with Obama in the Oval Office.”
Campaign finance records at the Federal Election Commission show Mr. Dimon gave $2,000 to Mr. Obama’s Senate campaign in 2004; $2,000 to the campaign of future Obama chief of staff Rahm Emanuel in 2007, $28,500 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in 2007, $10,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2006, and $4,600 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2007. He has also given to the campaigns of some Republican senators, including $2,000 in 2009 and $2,000 in 2010 to Rob Portman, a Republican of Ohio; $2,000 in 2007 to John Cornyn of Texas; and $2,500 in December 2011 to Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican Leader.
