Did he really say that??

Probably.  Of course, in 2012, the value of the Dow was about half of what it is now... so, let's bump it to 2,000 points in a day.  Knock yourself out with the impeachment... let me know how it works out.

What was the Dow st in 2012?  12000?

 

1000 point drop then would be comparable to a 2000 point drop today

You and I know this stuff.  Of course, we would being rich and all.

A reminder:

 

Stocks: Dow ends down 313 points after Obama win

Nov. 7, 2012

NEW YORK — Stocks ended sharply lower Wednesday, one day after the re-election of President Obama. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down about 313 points, or 2.4%.

 

Investor reaction is decidedly negative over the defeat of the more business-friendly Mitt Romney and the continued gridlock in Congress that makes it tough for lawmakers to avert a fiscal policy crisis  by year-end.

 

The benchmark Dow remains below the psychologically significant 13,000, not seen since Aug. 3. The Standard & Poor's 500 index and Nasdaq composite index ended down 2.3% and 2.5%, respectively, with stocks in nearly every industry lower.

 

The Dow, which settled at 12,933, had its lowest close since Aug. 2; the S&P 500 and Nasdaq had their lowest closes since Aug. 6.

It was on the west coast, we are on the southeast. Sporadic rain but nothing more. Thanks for asking.
