    Well I'm sure Obama's buddies over at Goldman Sachs are tickled pink.

    You must be kidding, the Dow was under 8000 on inaguration day. It is up 50% since then.

    That doesn't make any sense. There are tons of safer investment vehicles than the stock market. Gold, T-Bonds, municipal bonds, general commodities, CDs, etc. The Dow is going up because more people are demanding stocks. But the demand is really weak compared to past years, which is why the Dow is going up rather slowly.

    Obama 2009-12 7,949.09 12,720.48 4,771.39 60%. So, actually it's improved quite a bit from 7949 to 12720. I'm not sure that he deserves credit for that but I'm just trying to throw out a fact here, in these murky waters.
