    It's an unfair insult to President Bush to suggest he looks more and more like Obama. Obama may be trying to gain some semblance of competency by adopting/retaining some of the Bush programs, but he isn't even close in personal integrity and competence, in my view.

    Harry Reid actually exercises Obama's veto power by not letting anything coming out of the House go to a vote.

    Several $trillion were lost in the stock market at the end of the Clinton Presidency and as Bush was coming into office. Due to Bush policies, the economy was able to recover from that, as well as recover from the shock of 9/11 and the subsequent chill on American business, and reach new record highs for the stock market and unemployment levels in the mid 4% range, levels that Obama can only dream about.

    That again--discounting the FACT that the House refused bi-cameral conferences 18 times..Refusing to acknowledge that GOP jobs bills are loaded with legislative riders with no relation to the jobs bill..Boehner was very clear about wanting ZERO new bills .

    The American people finally seem to be catching on but the damage has already been done.

    The stock market has been going up because there are fewer places left to invest, and to difficult to start up in the US with the federal and State bureaucracies. It's better to invest in established companies, many of whom have their manufacturing plants in foreign countries. Personally I would not invest in the stock market today though have done in the recent past.

    It's the same principle as to why people will say things online that they wouldn't say to someone in person.

    Anonymity.

    In this case, it's the difference between being able to be critical of A person or being critical of a faceless body. Because the Congress is made up of hundreds of people spanning all parts of the political spectrum it's very easy to find reasons why you dislike it and very easy to be very negative towards it.

    But it's more difficult to do that with a specific INDIVIDUAL. It's the same reason why generally you won't find an individual Senator or Congressman who has an approval rating round the same point that Congresses approval rating as a whole is. Because generally, more people like "Their guy" than will state they like the group as a whole.

    What's been happening in the stock market recently is a Fed based ponzi scam that will implode as soon as the Fed decides no longer to flood the bond markets with make believe American dollars. Hold on to your "ass"ets, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
