Compare and contrast

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B: JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs were all top 10 contributors to Obama's campaign, giving collectively more than $2 Million.

In principle, I have no problem with taking money from capitalists (assuming there aren't strings attached) and using it against them. But is that what's happening here? Is exhibit A more convincing than B?

Even John McCain got on his populist high-horse toward the end of the campaign to decry the 'greed on Wall Street' in a way that rang totally hollow and begged for ironic readings.
