No, not the economy in free fall, unemployment rate highest in 25 years, markets facing irrational pessimism, market telling Obama to put bad banks out of their misery, GM shares lowest in 75 years, stocks getting evefn cheaper or any of that stuff...

 

The good news is that consumers have started spending again and we only lost 75 points on the DJIA today. Yay. Gee Thanks, BO.

Yep, great news-

 

"March 6 (Bloomberg) -- Circuit City Stores Inc. will finish its going-out-of-business sales by March 8, earlier than the bankrupt company, once the second-biggest U.S. electronics retailer, had projected.

 

Consumers reacted positively to the going-out-of-business sales, which offer discounts of as much as 80 percent to 90 percent on some products, Carpenter said yesterday in a phone interview."

Dow is only down 107 points so far today. That's pretty good, compared to what it's been losing since O&Co took the reigns. But the market's no big deal anyway, as O&Co said a few days ago. He doesn't pay attention to its bobs, so we shouldn't either.

Yeah, the market is just like an opinion poll as best he can tell. No big deal.

 

US PRESIDENT Barack Obama has dismissed this week's plunge in the US stock market to its lowest level since 1996 as a "day-to-day gyration" similar to daily tracking polls during an election campaign.

There's just not as much joy as you might think in "I told you so" when you're in free fall on a bus filled with idiots that voted to drive it off a cliff.

I agree,

 

25 years I've been ranting about this stuff.....

now that we have reached the edge there is no joy in seeing it....

worse is hearing the delusional idiots who are pretending it was caused in the last 6 weeks.

The cliff has been there for quite some time. It still sucks that a bunch of utter morons decided to hire a bus driver that wanted to apply the Wil-E-Coyote strategy to Cliff navigation.

 

Unfortunately, President Obama, the laws of physics aren't as gullible as the suckers that voted for you were.

how would you fix it the current mess?

 

if it's just more tax cuts your credibility will be hurt.

Think about it for a bit. You've been told enough times. I'll give you a hint, though. It's not spending money like shore-leave sailors at the only whorehouse in town.
