John Heilemann on Morning Joe: How Did Obama Lose Wall Street Donors?

By

On Morning Joe today, our own John Heilemann told the panel that the days of Wall Street acting "as an ATM for the president are pretty much gone," as President Obama has not managed his relationship with major Wall Street donors well enough and is alienating them when it comes to policy. President Obama is not "a master of donor maintenance," Heilemann said, adding that Wall Street Democrats are leery of writing big checks to Priorities USA, a pro-Obama Super PAC, knowing the money will be used to run ads criticizing Mitt Romney, whom they might agree with on taxes and economic policy.
