  • Didn't Obama say we weren't supposed to watch the stock market daily because it gyrates like elvis presley?

    I'm not excited that the stock market rose on plans of yet more corporate welfare, if that's what your asking. When the gov buys toxic assets, they own them. It's a control thing.

  • It has been up for a little stretch. Its up again because home sales rose by 5% and the plan to buy up bad debt...We'll see where it goes. However, Wall Street is not always an indicator of the economy at large. We need to start seeing a drop in un-employment and job creation to get that beast going

  • Has Geithner talked yet today? It's up because Biden has been missing since the AIG fiasco and Obama's news conference isn't until tomorrow.
    Only with the Obama administration do we have Vice Presidents disappear for weeks on end.
    I happen to LOVE Elvis, Pelvis and all.

  • Had you subscribed to the Weekly Standard and Forbes, your money wouldn't be gone. They both told their readers to leave the markets (in May '08) if Obama was ahead in the polls in September of '08. Or, had you read Fleeced by Dick Morris, you would have been privy to the same information. Not everyone lost on the market prior to Sept. 15.

    Why bother to investigate why it's up when you can be a smart@ss instead?
    Your kids and grandkids just bought a few decades worth of bad debt. Chances are, most of it will be written off in bankruptcies. This isn't corporate welfare, this is keeping a corporate mistress for the long haul. This is grandpa marrying Anna Nicole and writing the family out the will - on a much bigger scale.
