Something to ponder:

In a comment thread over at Think Progress, pags2 wrote:
In 2010 and 2012 the corporate interests in the US are going to line up against the Republicans. The Republicans in Congress are going to be running on a platform denouncing the bailouts that were given to banks, AIG and the auto industry. These bailouts saved a number of businesses from bankruptcy. The business community is going to give money to Dems who voted for these bailouts. There is no reason for the business community to support people who were against the bailouts.
Is that a reasonable scenario?

Aren't the Democrats largely doing things that business* want? Why swap horses if it's working?

I don't buy it. The business sector will just go back to throwing money at the Rethuglicans when the latter have a chance of controlling Congress.
