Far be it from us to question Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein’s decision to back same sex marriages at a time when the powerful investment bank is heavily contributing to Republican candidates for the party’s nomination for president in 2012. They all condemn such marriages as an anathema. Blankfein may be sincere in his support of civil rights and full equality before the law of all citizens regardless, in this instance, of sexual preference.
Yet, you have to wonder that this man who has become the poster boy for everything that is wrong on Wall Street, has chosen this moment to ‘come out’ in support of gay marriage. He who is the embodiment of what Matt Taibbi called ‘the vampire squid’ with tentacles sucking the economic blood globally for the greater glory of Goldman Sachs’ principals and stockholders.
Let’s see how much clout Blancfein can bring to the fight for same sex marriages through his affiliation with the number one investment banking house on Wall Street.
