      Uhhhh, I'm not talking only about the oil companies. there are 1,000's of other corporations involved.

      Some big companies are boosting their share of campaign contributions to Democrats this year, a sign that executives may be starting to hedge their political bets after a decade of supporting congressional Republicans.

      The shift includes backers of the Republican Party in the insurance, pharmaceuticals and tobacco industries, such as American International Group Inc., Wyeth, and Reynolds American Inc., according to PoliticalMoneyLine, a nonpartisan tracker of campaign contributions.

      Most companies say they give political donations to candidates who support their businesses, regardless of party affiliation. But corporations also tend to channel funds to politicians they think will hold power. So any shift in corporate campaign giving toward Democrats could signal that businesses believe Democrats will have more sway in Washington after the 2006 midterm elections or the 2008 presidential contest.

      "The reality is beginning to set in here," says Greg Casey, the head of the Business-Industry Political Action Committee, an organization of businesses dedicated to electing pro-industry candidates. Even if Republicans maintain control of Congress after the November election, their majorities in both chambers are expected to shrink. "What you couldn't get done in 2006 will be much more difficult in 2007," Mr. Casey says.

      This proves my earlier point EXACTLY... the first paragraph points out how big corporation who had been donating to the repugs during the bush disaster... these same companies switched over to the "democratic" party once they saw the trend shift toward Obama.

      They did NOT switch because they "became democrats". forget that nonsense.

        quick! go hit him!

        dude you look silly as fuck.

        you replied to a comment about Big Oil. You were off base. Wrong. whatever.

        Don't try switching the topic. The topic is Big Oil in this comment sub-thread.

        Not EVERY corporation.

        boo yah.

        go look at the frontpage of dailykos...FROM TODAY. you can see the stats in black and white...or should I say orange...

        Big Oil is primarily a donor to GOP, in both dollars and percentages of amounts given.
