TAMPA, Fla. (MarketWatch) — Political donors with Wall Street ties are betting heavily on Mitt Romney, but the candidate’s platform in coming months will be a carefully crafted appeal to a wider audience.
The threat of new government regulations and larger deficits are upping the stakes this election cycle, and, with his more pro-business policies, Romney has captured the lion’s share of contributions made by the securities and investment industry. But to win votes from a wide swath of America, he’ll wrap his support for Wall Street in broader points about growth and reform

“I don’t think it’s a useful message in most corners of the country to talk about what you are doing for Wall Street,” said Sheila Krumholz, executive director at the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonprofit research group based in Washington.

Given his history at investment firm Bain Capital, Romney has a Wall Street sheen.

1. Chris Hayes talked about Romney and Dodd-Frank on his show.

Joseph Stiglitz was on. Yeah, Romney's full of shit. The bill does identify some "too big to fail banks" - it uses a different label - and it puts extra requirements on them to be sure the taxpayers never have to bail them out. As for "qualified loans" - the federal bureau charged with defining qualified loan did define it - republicans refused to authorize the definition.

They discussed other aspects of the bill Romney is always full 0of shit.
