Then what is the purpose of this topic?

Well, since the Democrats love corporate bailouts, I only assumed MrBob was on board with that mantra. Seeing as he believes Limbaugh represents all Republicans, I associated MrBob in a similar, satirical manner.

He also mentioned that he gives Obama full credit for any turnaround, and since any 'turnaround' is obviously going to be a result of bailouts, what else would he have to go by? Therefore, by making the original statement, he is in fact advocating that bailouts have saved the market.

If you don't listen to them - start - and make up your own mind.
I find it to be rather humorous that not one person who criticizes someone like Limbaugh (an entertainer by the way) can provide quotes or examples from his show when confronted.

The challenge remains, what quotes do you have of Limbaugh or Hannity flying off the handle over the stock market surge?

You forget the the bailouts for the banks started last year and signed of by both Republicans and Democrats. Boehner by the way did not dispell the possibility for more bailouts...isn't he a republican?

You wont find many Republicans here on the forum that have supported the bailouts, be them from Bush, or from Obama. Its only Democrats that I have seen which have switched their views on the benefits of taxpayer money being used.

Liberals think....
Bush bailouts = bad bad bad
Obama bailouts = he's a financial genius (jees, I think we have a thread saying just this started by the same poster that started this thread)

And now Republicans are being told that they are "very upset" over making money under obama.. It wouldnt be any funnier if you guys were serious..

ooh you were.. now thats funny...

Oh, for Pete's sake, oz! Even pghquest said the market has to go up or down. It's not going to stay the same every day! And why are you gloating so much? Do you not have any money invested in the market? If so, it would certainly be in your interest if it went up, wouldn't it? Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face!

Considering the OP of this thread an dits gloating nature,it is quite funny your response.

I guess having the bubble burst is annoying.
