Default Obama slips in polls, market goes up????

Anyone else notice how the further ahead in the Polls Obama goes, the further the stock market falls? And today, with McCain narrowing the gap, the market is up 400 pts. at last check?

This is not coincidence...Wall Street is worried about an Obama Presidency....you the American public however, should not be concerned. That is unless of course, you have money in an IRA, 410k, or some other retirement vehicle. Then you might want to be just a little bit concerned.

And oh yeah, while I'm at it, here's a look at some of the finest, most intelligent minds that the Democrats have to offer America:

Since the only thing that saved the markets is socialization, can you explain how that helps McCain?

Nobody has taken any of my investments away and given it to someone that didn't work for it....yet.

So I guess you'll have to explain to me how the market was "socialized" since I haven't seen it yet.

Since you answered the question with a question, a common liberal defense, I thought I'd try the same technique to see how it works.

No did not notice. But if you are going to start a thread it is best if you show us the qualitative data that you have obviously gathered in your extensive analysis.

Speaking of polls, the latest poll disagrees completely with you:

As first evident in an ABC/Post poll three weeks ago, Obama holds the reins on economic woe. Registered voters trust him over McCain to handle the economy by 53-37 percent. Obama holds his largest lead yet, a remarkable 30-point margin, in better understanding the economic problems Americans are having, 58-28 percent. He leads McCain by about as much, 59-31 percent, in trust to help the middle class, and by 11 points on taxes, two prime points of contention in the last presidential debate.

Socialism did not save the market, no money has exchanged hands, and since your proclaiming that its been saved, try checking out the value of the stock market now, vs what it was last year, and then proclaim its "saved"..

With just over three weeks until Election Day, the two presidential nominees appear to be on opposite trajectories, with Sen. Barack Obama gaining momentum and Sen. John McCain stalled or losing ground on a range of issues and personal traits, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Overall, Obama is leading 53 percent to 43 percent among likely voters, and for the first time in the general-election campaign, voters gave the Democrat a clear edge on tax policy and providing strong leadership.
