"Under a Democratic president and Republican-controlled House, the market has shot up a whopping 19.5% per year. One possible explanation for the divided divide? Businesses prefer the stable policies a gridlocked government can't help but provide."

The Real Reason Wall Street Is Voting Republican

Well, in that case.

It's funny but I was watching something, probably Cavuto, and heard just the opposite. Wall Street/big finance is firmly in the Obama camp. It's small business that's breaking Republican.

It's always nice to think that a political party actually thinks of the people first. In other news, a unicorn was spotted yesterday farting rainbows.

Why do you think Fox would say that, Laura?

It will be interesting to see what happens if they need another bailout. I don't think the Tea people are gonna go for that again.

Wall Street is already happy. The market has been up what 30% under Obama. The market has historically done slightly better under democratic rule.

Gee how much did it go up from the start of King George until the end of his reign? I think it is a negative number.

This theory works very well in a functioning economy.

Problem is we are not in one.

Careful what you wish for.

How much did it go down after the Democrats took over the houses in 2006? I would suggest you think about that for awhile, but then, I also don't think who is or is not Pres really plays a huge role in the market.
