    So does this mean we have more of the 1% to hate?

    Good yes....great NO.
    Yes I know, it is why I said grow some. Signs overall are things may slowly start going back up.

    Personally, the stock market goes up, it goes down and up. I don't give much credit or blame to the Office of the President for the stock market. Don't care who is in the Office.
    Well sir, besides having great taste in American music and good recall, you also seem to have a pretty good grip on reality.

    Thank you Mr. President. SOME of us are actually paying attention out here. Looking forward to your next term.
    Yeah, thanks for waiting around and doing relatively nothing to relieve the burden on the middle class as you pandered to the banks and wallstreet once again. You really knew and understood well that the economy couldn't remain in the crapper forever and if you just stall long enough, things would eventually get better on their own without you having to do a damned thing to help out Middle America as Rich-as-**** America takes the rest of us to the cleaners yet again. Woot....Status-Quo!

    The interesting thing about that is that most of my friends who play the stock market claim that they aren't making anything worth noting in the market anymore. Most of them are looking for other avenues to invest in, and getting completely out of the stock market.

    Interesting indeed. I would be happy to pass them on my financial guru's contact info if they are interested.

    One thing is for sure, its getting harder and harder make the case that Obama is making things worse!
    It's a common misperception that Wall Street is the economy. Now I'm not blaming Obama for this. It's a long held mistaken belief.

    We saw this just a few years ago. We know how that ended.

    Apparently, you missed the tax reductions for the middle class, all the state jobs that were saved due to the stimulus funds to the states, increased access to health care, and the largest increase in manufacturing jobs since the 90's.
