Okay, reality check:
The Dow went from 3,000 to 11,000 in the eight years of the Clinton presidency. That's a 266% increase.

In the eight years of Bush, it's made it from 11,000 to 13,000 (18% growth), and most would say the underlying financials are extremely weak given the state of the energy crisis, the damage to the midwestern states and the agricultural sector from the flooding, and the widespread real estate bubble which we'll only escape serious damage from if we catch several breaks and God loves us.

The really sick part of all of this is that the steep part of the downturn is probably going to come on the next president's watch, and the average Joe (i.e. suprefan) will blame it on them.

I agree. It annoys me tremendously that people talk about the economy like a governmental policy change one day will have its full effect within the next 24 or 48 hours. It takes years for things to resonate.

he does help out a lot actually with some random tidbits of information, but to say most of his posts are quality.....this must be sarcasm lol. i'd say 1 out of 5 posts are quality information, with the other 4 being some kind of message bragging about this or that, or calling someone else's information old news. i still enjoy his posts though. and calling 20% of his posts quality maybe stretching it :thu
