We’ve covered the personal connections to Wall Street of some of the celebrities who are supporting the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters.

Now there’s a picture going around that helps establish a personal Wall Street/corporate connection to the protesters themselves (Doug Ross has a full size pic here):

As for political leaders, President Obama has claimed the protesters represent “broad based frustration” with the financial system. Nancy Pelosi said “God bless them” and that no longer will the “recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street.”

In 2008, Obama raked in millions upon millions in campaign cash from Wall Street, and Nancy Pelosi’s husband made his bones as an investment banker.

History won’t record this as the largest protest ever, but it might take the prize for the most ironic.

Update: Nancy Pelosi is finally speaking out about this madness:

“I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late 70s in San Francisco, this king of rhetoric. … It created a climate in which violence took place. … I wish we would all curb our enthusiasm in some of the statements and understand that some of the ears that it is falling on are not a balanced as the person making the statements may assume.”

Wait, nevermind — that was in reference to the Tea Parties in 2009.

Meanwhile, Pelosi managed to pin some of the blame for the ongoing Wall Street protests on… you guessed it: George W. Bush.
