We're just very fortunate that the stock market has been so robust over the past 2 months. Just think of how bad it could have been if it had already crashed!

Obama supporters predicted a rise in the markets today (go to the business forum for an example). It ain't happening, what they've been told all along is happening: the markets don't like obama. Companies are already announcing cuts before his tax increases take place. obama is a cross between hoover, carter and maybe hitler as far his ability to delude masses goes.

Gotta love it. For the last eight years all the bad things that happened during Bush's administration the GOP blamed on Clinton. Obama is not even in office yet and he is already responsible for everything wrong in the world.

You think the markets aren't going to have a reaction to the new fake president, taking into account his foolish ideas.

Here we go... the endless stream of moronic predictions of doom and gloom because Obama was elected...

What a bunch of mindless idiots - no wonder why McCain got whooped!!!

With morons like this behind you, you don't exactly need enemies!!

Like the market didn't already know that Obama would win? It's been evident for weeks, except maybe for those of you in denial.

No, it was very close. He only got about 52 percent of the popular vote. That's close. The polls were within the margin of error. The market fell at times there were strong signs of obama in the lead, went up as those strong leads fell.
