Question: if Obama has had such a disasterous impact on the economy then why is the best July for the stock market in decades. I'm not sure that the President can take all of the credit but he surely can take some of it. I'm not thrilled with the bailout but the plan may have worked to some degree. Let's give some credit where the credit is due.

My 401K is VERY HAPPY - not just about July, but about the markets in general since early March.

The market improved in spite of Obama, not because of him...!
He UHC is tanking, and the market likes that, it will keep us out of BK..!
The bailout succeeded in NO WAY...!

This is EXCELLENT news!!! Make sure you share it with the 12% plus U.S. citizens who don't have a job. OK?

What does that say about George W. Bush or do we have him to thank. The Dow Jones went from 11.5 to 8.2 from the time Bush stepped in to the White House and the time he left. It's finally back to 9.0 just because he's out of office. How can you spin that?

Glad I sold all my stocks before idiot Tax and Spender in Chief got a his sticky fingers on my profits.

Wall Street could boom and the whiney butted libs would then want to tax the people who were smart enough to invest in the right thing and take it all away from them.

Hang on people, we are in for an Obama rough ride.

Make all the profits you want and a liberal expects you to hand it over to someone else. So what is the use of Wall Street again?

On one hand the libs hate anyone or anything that makes money and now they are jumping for joy because the market move a little.

Yuppeee, more money to steal from successful people and hand it to the bums we have to feed and house.
