Obama is doing quit will with economy since the DOW is down almost 800 point since Oct 18.

Obama did nothing about the so call fiscal cliff all summer and now he is pretending to be concerned.

Obama should just extend the 2011 Obama tax cuts. After all, he wanted the tax cuts last year.

None of you said a word or gave an ounce of credit for the 7,000 point increase. Now all of a sudden the DOW is the economy. Funny how that works.

Ummmm....this Oct/Nov to this point isn't much different from any other Oct/Nov period in the stock market....a falling market during this time is pretty much SOP for most stock market years. Anyone who hasn't been pretty much in cash since early September doesn't belong trading stocks...IMO.....but it's getting close to stocking up again time.

I'm guessing selected retail, toy and electronics stocks will be the place to be this year. Layaways are so crazy this year that some stores ran out of back room space a couple weeks ago (10% default/back to stock rate, there). And we have a long season this year. And Black Friday's still a week away.

I just wish Toys R Us was still publicly traded. It always used to take a dive in Nov-Dec and then double in January. It would probably do at least that this year. Somebody's going to do well.

Because that inconvenient fact doesn't fit the reality they've created for themselves wherein everything that Obama did or that happened on his "watch" is "bad".

Down another 250 points today. How much is that since he was reelected?

Just like Bush was blamed for what happened, what is wrong with Obama taking the blame now?

Remember that Obama was going to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. How is that Obama lie doing?

How about the big Obama joke about shovel ready projects that even Obama admitted he lied about.

Or the lie about unemployment will not go above 8%?

Or maybe the lie about keeping your doctor if you want?

Or the lie about Obamacare reducing health care costs?

Because as was astutely pointed out already...none of you said a word or gave an ounce of credit for the 7,000 point increase...that's why.

Anyone know how this "DOW" thing is doing? Nobody has posted about it in a long time.
