That is because there were 4 or 5 Republican candidates at the time. They were sharing the business contributions. Notice this paragraph from your article:
"While executives have given more money to Obama, they make up a small percentage of his total donor base. Executives account for 6 percent of Obama’s total contributions, and 16 percent of Romney’s, according to the analysis."
What hypocrisy? I did not hear what he said last night, but from your own post it is not hypocritical. He did not donate the money ANONOMOUSLY,
All Democrats want socialized medicine? If so, why didn't they pass it when they had the numbers?
On a separate note, you whine when people call it a one payer system rather than socialized medicine. I thought about the semantics recently. It is not socialized medicine. It is socialized insurance. I.e., the medical care would not be owned by the government. The insurance would be. Would you prefer that we call it socialized insurance?
No. It is still only an opinion that you are attempting to pass off as fact.
Regarding all of the rest of that up there; if you are taking the position that Romney and Obama pushed for the reforms that they did, but for different reasons, I can't come anywhere close to even begin to pretend that I agree with you.

When did I say ALL Dems want socialized medicine? They did not have universal support within the party, but more importantly, they did not have anywhere near enough support in America for socialized medicine or single-payor.
As for that MASSIVE difference between socialized medicine and single-payor, you can be deluded in to thinking it is significantly different, but fact of the matter, there will be universal pricing, there will be government controlled services, there will be limitations on doctors' abilities to work out of the system, etc. It will be about us giving our money to the government, who then re-allocates it back to us with a massive bevy of restrictions placed on the providers and recipients. Tom-A-to vs Tom-AH-to.
There are plenty of good reasons to give to Romney anonymously...
In The Wall Street Journal, Potomac Watch columnist Kimberley Strassel notes Barack Obama's attempts to intimidate contributors to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
Isn't it ironic that the main issue in our healthcare system is health insurers and for some reason members of our government feel that the solution is to have MORE insurance. Wonder why the insurance companies support Obamacare??? Perhaps because then the government would be their clients. The insurers (AKA the problem) would have MORE control over the same healthcare system. It's a pattern with this administration. Give more control of our government and economy to big business. It's no coincidence that so many of our elected or appointed officials are former executives of these same businesses.
I'm done with the first point, as if you can't see the factual support for my point, INCLUDING ACTUAL INTERVIEWS with Obama and other crafters of Obamacare, I don't know what to tell you.
On the second point, I say Romney supported a policy on a State basis (I don't like it, but I didn't run for Governor of Massachusetts, either), then was wrong to encourage it on a National basis. He now is vowing, regardless of his prior position, to take Obamacare down. I support that. Where am I being inconsistent?
His issue was with the impact of the SCOTUS and Citizens United.
But glad to see you are still looking for wasy to excuse the actions of the left, while calling ALL conservatives names.
Keep up the uninformed opinions.

But somehow Chris doesn't see himself being inconsistent by continuing to vote for a guy that:
Said raising the debt limit was unpatriotic,
Condemned the previous administration for keeping Gitmo open
Claimed the president has no authority to authorize a military strike unless it is self-defense then did it in Lybia
Claimed it was foolish to drop third site missile defense yet did so within 6 months
Called Mubarak a "stalwart" ally a year before bombing him
Who ran on a platform that argued AGAINST the individual mandate
Told John Edwards to shut down his SuperPacs or tell them not to take money from questionable donors (Maher?)
Of course he also PROMISED in 2004 not to run for the Presidency in 2008
Promised not to kill NASA
Like other Dems, blamed Bush for high gas prices
Pot meet kettle
