    Oh, he's using capitalism to get ahead. Quick stop him before he's labeled a conservative. Obviously he's not paying his fair share in taxes.

    I was looking at my Vanguard investments today. They came in the mail. They bottomed out in 2008. They have been kicking butt since.

    Personally, I do not credit Obama for the increase in my personal investments. Not anymore than I blame Bush for my stock losses when he was at the helm. Because I really don't think the oval office has that much control over them.

    To think otherwise, I would certainly have to curse Bush and kiss Obama's butt. I mean, if the president gets the blame/credit and all.

    Here's who I credit. ME! I worked hard for the money I stuck in market. I took it up the ass during the hard times. I stuck it out. I kept working harder and harder and putting more and more back for my rainy day. Now, I reap what I sowed. Screw a president. I never met a single president I thought cared two hoots about my retirement and quality of living. GOP or democrat.
    I only blame him for the policies he sets forth, not the market as a whole. He has no control over what is happening in Europe or the DOW. He however, does have control over whether or not we repeal the 2.3% sales tax on medical equipment that could slash margins in half and send medical manufacturing jobs overseas. I do blame him for that.

    Pssst: this thread isn't about me, fascinating though I am. It's about Obama's policies. But I don't need to wonder why you don't want to discuss them. They're succeeding!

    NEXT!

    I could have sworn Obama raised taxes on the top bracket -- and the DOW has skyrocketed. So much for another discredited rightwing meme.
    Skyrocketed eh? No, what happened was all the people who took their money out of the market in fear of the "fiscal cliff" put their money back in the market when a deal was reached. What was actually in the deal had nothing to do with it.

    It doesn't seem to be hurting medical stocks.

    In any case, Obama has raised taxes. The rightwing noise machine claimed it would result in economic armageddon. It hasn't. Quite the contrary. Don't you think you guys should admit you were wrong?

    I'm celebrating you as a shining example of what Obama wants in America. Don't shy away from your duty to be an example.

    It's the highest in 5 years so your narrative doesn't make sense unless you claim they took the money out before Bush's Meltdown. Which of course they didn't. But nice little story.
