Ooooohhhhh!!! Market up again today!!!

Can't you hear the gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair from the extreme right wing nutcases??? They were hoping and praying for Obama to fail with all their might - and they are being denied their pathetic revenge...

They are probably getting ready to jump from the nearest high building...

Obama is succeeding - can't you feel their excrutiating pain???

5,000,000 jobs lost since the recession officially started in December of 2007. Most on Bush's watch--some on Obama's watch. The recession has probably bottomed out. Economists on CBS tonight stated that the worst may be behind us.

I'll believe it when I see it. Although I did have an interview so that's positive. The question remains when this is all over how do we shift the power back from the rich few who screwed everyone over back to the people? Because based on what I've seen there has been a huge flow of wealth going the wrong way the past year or so.

On Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 39.51 points, or 0.5%, to 8017.59, its highest close since Feb. 9, bringing its advance to 3.1% on the week. That was the fourth straight week of gains, and at 21%, the biggest advance for this kind of four-week streak since May 1933. The broad Standard & Poor's 500 index added 8.12, or 0.97%, to 842.5. For the week, the S&P 500 added 3.3%, and has cut its losses on 2009 to 6.7%. The Nasdaq Composite added 19.24, or 1.2%, to 1621.87, and is now up 2.8% for the year to date.

That's my position as well - as I have been mentioning over the last few weeks. There are MANY signs of improvement. Admittedly they are SLIGHT so far, but they are definitely there and they are numerous.

I believe we have hit bottom also... although when the economy recovers it will be slow and gradual - and job recovery will lag behind by a year or so...

But Obama is slowly turning this train-wreck of an economy around...

Just imagine if McCain were in charge right now...

He'd be saying 'The fundamentals of the economy are sound' as the economy fell off a cliff..

His response would be??? Why, more tax cuts for the rich!!
