.... AND these are not even the SAME 30 stocks that were counted when President Bush had the market up over 14,000+.

ooh Dow tops 13000!

can you say hiccup?

just like the politicians and media in Newark NJ who celebrated the one month without a murder in 40 or so years. Suddenly their mayor was a savior who saved the that generational Dem controlled criminal playground and turned Newark around to be a safe city.

The events that caused the blip in the DOW do not indicate a trend of propserity or have anything to do with the economic guru Obama and friends. more media hype to feed the ignorant minions Obama requires for his blind support.

It correlates with a decrease in people's expendable income which in many cases is already almost nonexistent. It means people give up more of the things that make life more fun or just survivable each month. It makes for some very unhappy campers and voters.

High gas prices aren't going to change the fact that our tax dollars are going to Snake Oil businesses that have ties to the administration. If green energy was the answer, they wouldn't need handouts.

Bush/Cheney and the right-wing circle sold us the wars by implying "The gas will be cheaper!"

So of course they would be blamed. And they should be.

You still want to say Obama is not doing jack the facts are the facts the economy is moving in the right direction
do not know why that is bad news. The uptick in the economy occurred after the republican took the house/.
And bad news for all of us is the price of gas. The higher that goes the lower the president will go
