RE: Bizzare mad mad world of business and stocks
Well, in the four years he has held office, the stock market has not gone up one dime. Dow at 10K when he gets in, DOW at 10K now. That doesn't exactly give his economic plan (if he ever had one) the smell
My self, I think the emphasis on the fear factor of terrorism and the color alerts and all the fake terror warnings we got whenever Bush's poll numbers were down has hurt the economy badly. We really could have used a "There is nothing to fear but fear itself " President - instead we have one that uses fear to achieve his ends. It has hurt the American spirit. Its one of the reasons not destroying Bin Laden was a huge economic as well as political mistake. We should have whacked the guy for closure, and then gotten back to business. Instead, he is like a knife hanging over our heads, and I think Bush did it on purpose. The pies he and his daddy have their fingers in - oil, defense, are getting bigger all the time. Meanwhile, the middle class is getting smaller, and as long as Bush makes us afraid, we will live with it.
