I guess you didn't check from August until on...The Dow started going down in August then took a deep dive in September. But if you want to continue to peddle that political crap...go right ahead....Never mind the fact that common sense and those who Truely deal with the stock market know that the collapse was due to the Banking and Housing industry...

Oh, so we're supposed to take YOUR word about YOUR memory instead of the documented polls I just displayed the graph of.

No thanks. I'm funny that way. I prefer documented facts over the hazy memory and unknown level of honesty of a faceless nameless person on the internet that I don't even know.

Call me wierd I guess.

in an already weakened state, the financial system could not handle an anti business socialist (who had already successfully sued the largest financial firm in the world)


the markets could not handle a leader that considers long term investors "speculators"

And yet they seem to be handling it just fine since March - with the biggest, fastest rise in more than half a century.

Yup - that's what happens when you inherit a recession.
So, lets compare that DOW again shall we?

Dow when Bush took over: 10,900

Dow when Bush left office: 8,600

Note that the DOW spent virtually Bush's entire first term underwater (5 long years with no growth whatsoever to show for it) - and it wasn't until the housing bubble really started to develop that the DOW really moved upwards - only to crash again when that bubble burst. Note too that even BEFORE the October crash, the DOW was pretty much back down where it was 8 years earlier - showing NO GAIN for that 8 year period.
Heck of a job Junior!
