The Economy -- Not the President -- Is Tanking the Market

One of the more ridiculous statements going around over the last few weeks is "this is an Obama bear market." This statement is, well, ill-informed at best and fraudulent at worst. Let's look at why.

3 1/2 years and it is still the economy, stupid.

That's what the election is about: not Bain, not tax returns - but the sluggish economy, President Obama;s FAILED policies, and getting the man who can lead us out of the Obama recession into the White House where he can roll up his sleeves and get the job done - Mitt Romney.

All business decisions are based on risk vs reward. When the gvmt threatens to take away the reward , no one is willing to take the risk.

And if he hasn't fixed it in 3 years, he doesn't deserve a second term. Those were the words from Obama himself.

Add to that the fear that consumers have in spending when they feel their future is threatened and not secure, that threat in part comes from the man not instilling confidence, yet more fear and you have a recipe for a bad economy.

Didn't have to look into that so deep to figure out.

The election is not just about the economy but the dumbing down of the American people. While Barry Sotero has clearly been the worst steward of our economy in our nation's history, there are far too many ignorant, lazy, apathetic dolts out there who, rather than thinking and doing for themselves, surrender to moronic soundbites like "yes we can," and "change we can believe in."

So if Barry Sotero gets another four years it will only serve to prove that you can't fix stupid.

Nope - the blame falls squarely on Barack Hussein Obama - he is the president - he even said that if the economy hadn't turned around in 3 1/2 years that he would be a one term president. he talked about accountability. Well, now is the time to hold the president accountable - vote him out in November.

He's not - just a bastard. Republicans are lobbied by military contractors... Dems are also lobbied by corporations - just different.
