AH...can this be? The GOP said we were on the "brink" of economic disaster! And had they won the election, they would take claim for 14000! Yippee!

How the GOP can keep claiming gloom and doom is beyond the thinking of rational people.

Over the history of the stock market, under a Democrat presidency, the stock market or the Dow Jones has a net gain of over 14,500 points. Thus, under a Republican presidency, the stock market has a net loss. Go figure. Facts simply cannot be contested.

Facts simply cannot be contested."...But wait, i thought it was always the previous administrations who were responsible for the current situations? Cant have it both ways!

How the Democrats excoriated President Bush for an unemployment rate of 7.8% when he left office and now praise Obama for a 7.9% rate is beyond the thinking of rational people.

Make no mistake: MANY people are making/earning a LOT of money, but for the most part, it's not the middle class. According to many reports, CEO Pay Grew 127 Times Faster Than Worker Pay Over Last 30 Years. Trickle-down economics DOES NOT WORK.

"How the GOP can keep claiming gloom and doom is beyond the thinking of rational people." just like the one that posted this. Let's see..the unemployment rate when UP. We have 23 million Americans unemployed. Our Debt is 17 Trillion. College graduates cannot find jobs. Medical devise companies, (and others) are still shedding people. Gas prices at $4 again. Nothing bad here! the DOW hit 14000!!!!. I am glad that this is helping the average American pay their bills and provide for their retirements. Happy days are here again!!!
