Will Conservatives Give Thanks For Stock Surge?

At a time when intransigents and obstructionists and nay-sayers on the “Let Us Make Sure That Obama Is A One-Term President” side of the aisle are gloating over their apparently purchased “Victory” in Wisconsin (Did Big Money “Win” this one?)— that pesky Stock Market has taken another whopper of a jump and the Richie Reichties must be laughing all the way to the bank again.

That old “Economic Slowdown” that we had a couple of days back should have had Reichties flatulating with exorbitant glee because, according to some of what I have read, it tended to make Obama look “Bad” in some  of their eyes.  So, I ask, “What will they say now that the old standby Stock Market (The Rich Rightie Maker) is back on the upswing?  Will they be giving Obama’s fiscal policies any credit for their “Easy Money?”

In my opinion, The Righties are not telling the whole story when they slam President Obama’s financial policies as “Failures.”

They forget sometimes to mention the little fact that our recent Stock Market slide had nothing to do with the President’s Fiscal Policies— it was all about the Euro and European Markets – - – nothing at all to do with Obama.

Of course, they are not going to mention that detail are they? In my humble opinion, they will not mention that detail— they will just dance all the way to the bank and enjoy the windfall that our President’s steady hand of leadership has caused for them and never utter a single word of praise for him for his hard work and determined calm leadership in these hard times. That is my opinion about the whole matter.

I am an American Man, 72-years-old, and a Veteran of The U.S. Military. I have served honorably in both The United States Army (National Guard) and The United States Air Force for a total of seven years and three months active duty during what is now known as The Vietnam Era. I am a concerned citizen and refer to myself as "A Crazy Left Wing Liberal Nut Case with occasional Right Wing Conservative tendencies. I am particularly concerned and grieved about the way our beloved America seems to have become so politically divided over the past few years to the point where hardly anyone seems to be able to get along or to work together and where mutual vilification seems to be a spectator sport of some kind. I am particular fearful that we might get to the point, in our internal power struggles where we would be a One Party Nation. That, in my opinion, would be a total disaster and that is what I fear certain members of the element generally known as The "Christian" Conservative Right may have in mind.

  • You forgot the mention the part where America had its credit rating reduced. That part falls directly on the reckless spending of the current administration. In fact it is predicted that by the end of this decade at the current pace the Obummer boys are running up deficits that the federal debt will surpass $20 Trillion ( and that’s the conservative estimate).

    There is no doubt that the stock market is bouncing around due to the current uncertainty in Europe, particularly Greece and Spain. However, bear this in mind, if two little countries like Greece and Spain have that much effect, imagine the outcome when America finds itself in the same financial insinuating in years to come.

    Now before , you write off the stock market as being something that only effects the 1%, keep in mind that virtually all pensions plans are heavily invested in the market. So even many of those who are not directly invested in the market, are in fact counting on the markets performance for their retirement.

  • I am still waiting for Reichtie to give a tip of the hat to the President for their windfall.

    “…( and that’s the conservative estimate)…and who cares a Pecks Darn about the “Conservative Estimate” save the Conservatives?

    “So even many of those who are not directly invested in the market, are in fact counting on the markets performance for their retirement.” (Retirements which Reichtie is eliminating just as fast as they can be eliminated.)

  • Sad to say, on top of not understanding politics and human sacrifice it also appears you have little grasp of economics as well. But as I pointed out in a previous comment, you certainly can spell check.
