    No, they didn't have enough backers then I credit the OWS with building support of reestablishing Glass Steagall.

    Yes, last year when they knew they would never be called to vote on it. There is no way this ever passes when you have Timmy and Bernie running our finances. That those two are in the places they are shows that there is no real effort for reform.

    I will admit, if the economy continues to improve and Obama tackles entitlement reform, his presidency is a success. Everyone can say he should tackle the debt all they want but until he tackles entitlements, nothing significant is going to happen. He may do that because he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected in his second term (yes, I believe he will get a second term). Anything he does besides that is kicking the can down the road. However, I don't believe he will tackle entitlements. I have no faith in this dude. Unlike other people though, I actually hope he accomplishes it. Because no matter what side someone is on, if the country is better, who cares about the letter by their name.

    Of course they could have. Instead they institutionalized too big to fail.

    That wasn't a "sell-off" ... it was a collapse. Something needed to spark the collapse to come to an end to convince people into investing again in the market. What provided that spark?

    True, there are multiple factors ... so what do you think those factors were?

    There has been no spark. It was a simple deluge of money.

    Umm, not amidst a monster recession as the economy is collapsing. At that point, people are short of either the funds or the confidence or both to invest in the market. Something had to convince them the economy was turning around. People invest in the future. They don't invest in the market when the future appears bleak. Just look at what happened when the future looked its bleakest in 2008 and early 2009 -- the stock market tanked. Obama showed America he was serious about doing what he could to prevent the economy from collapsing entirely and the market responded.

    Ben Bernanke struck a downbeat tone on the health of the US economy - in spite of an upward revision of growth in the fourth quarter of 2011 - leaving it unclear whether the Federal Reserve would further ease monetary policy.

    In testimony to Congress on Wednesday, the Fed chairman said that the labour market was doing better, but the fundamentals supporting consumer spending “continue to be weak”.


    And I thought that the markets booming proved that the economy was doing good.
