You have to admit its kind of weird.
So many said the Obama economy and markets were so good and if we go back to those levels and enjoy all the good times they complain.

They questioned "MAGA" and wanted to know when it was great and then told everyone it was when Obama was running things. They wanted to know when America was great and they said it was Obama's economy and markets. Trump is giving them what they want and they seem upset for some reason. Weird !!!

They bashed Trump all the way to new highs and now he is giving them what they want and they still bash him. The democrats are never happy, always about something. No pleasing them. Maybe when we are under 2% GDP consistently that will help them get more comfortable with Trump's leadership. The magic wand may be the problem.
That's my point, and since you don't know. Why would you put yourself out there boasting on the Dow and saying Trump is greatest before the final chapter is even written. He could turn out to be the worst.

Nike just reported the worst quarter since the Great Recession. Does anyone still think the global economy is not contracting and quickly? Well other than Jay Powell?

Thank God even the Republicans have had it with him, well, except for the "Freedom" Caucus extremists. But oh, so much winning...still waiting for that cheap and beautiful healthcare that everybody was going to have, and very quickly, too.
That's odd, there are three branches of government? I thought he was a dictator and there was no system of checks and balances in place?

Nike (NYSE:NKE):

Q2 GAAP EPS of $0.52 beats by $0.07.

Revenue of $9.37B (+9.6% Y/Y) beats by $200M.


You must have broken your crystal ball. Why would you claim "worst quarter since the Great Recession" before the results were even released, only to find that they are doing really well, nowhere near the "worst" quarter in recent history.

You're still confused between the economy and DOW or markets after all this time. Amazing !!!


I'm betting you are really an economist and that is greatness!!! I can hardly wait for another Fed report and hear they are going to raise interest rates on the DOW. That should prop it up !!!

Yes, who would equate the economy with the DOW? What kind of idiot would do that?

Why... the OP, of course, when the OP started a thread entitled, "President Trump is absolutely the greatest on the economy. Dow breaks 25,000"

So maybe you should take your outrage to that idiot of an OP and dress him/her down for being economically ignorant.


Oh wait. The OP is you.
