    Meh, being floated by the kicking of the can down the road that the EU did today. Eventually, that won't be an option for them. Probably be good for the dollar, bad for the Euro for a bit. Or worse, people shift over to oil futures and cause the price to spike.

    Now why is that, why have stocks gained? Do you have any idea? Companies are not hiring, unemployment over 8% for over 42 months, companies are not growing, GDP at 1.5%. So why are their stock price improving?

    Positive news out of the Euro zone, and rosier than expected payroll surveys here at home.

    Are you trying to give obama credit for this? Are you trying to say it is because our economy is doing so good?

    You guys are funny. When there is bad economic news, that's Obama's fault. But when there is good economic news, that is not. When the 1% takes a hit, you cry about "job creators", but when things go well for them, you say "whatever, who cares about the 1%". It has nothing to do with reason, it's just blind partisanship. It has to be one way or the other. Either you care about the wealth of the 1% or you don't. Either you think the president bears some responsibility for the economy or the don't. You can't just pick and choose which way to go each time based on whether it supports your side or the other side.
