Investors Bet on Obama & US to WIN

Even as he won a historic come from behind election, passed a package that is helping to revive our economy, passed healthcare, and is in line to pass financial reform, lots of people on this board can't come up with enough reasons why President Obama already somehow already has failed at everything as if he left the office in shambles like the last President they don't talk about so much.

Here is what successful people who are putting their money where their mouths are think:

"Investors are putting their money on President Barack Obama’s stewardship of the U.S. economy even as his job-approval rating has declined, according to a global quarterly poll of investors and analysts who are Bloomberg subscribers."

It's going to be like President Clinton again. Republicans are going to cry their way to the bank as President Obama slowly but surely restores our fiscal house and brings balance back to America.

Your not serious, are you? Really? Pointing to the stock market price on two random dates is not relevant.

But here is what is relevant:

http://www.usmessageboard.com/economy/64052-stock-market-performance-by-president.html

That's right. What happened to the stock market during Bill Clinton's Presidency? Answer: it skyrocketed. What happened to the deficit? Answer: it went so far down we had a surplus by the end.

Now, what happened to the stock market and deficit during W.'s Presidency? Can you please answer the question? Be honest. Look at the link if you need to. Please give me a straight and honest answer. Look again at the data linked to above if you need to. Really, it's not hard to see what happens under the most recent two term Republican President versus the most recent two term Democratic President.

And, back to the point, investors are betting on Obama. Feel free to be a contrarian. It's actually not a bad investment strategy. But again, be honest. Most people disagree with you.

I just want everyone who is not a dead set right wing regular on this board to see that you and the right wingers on this board are on the fringe, and that you are not talking about facts, just a made up Republican dreamworld that is great until in reality Republican politicians walk America off the cliff.

>>> Even as he won a historic come from behind election,

They say a DA can indict a ham sandwich...well Obama proves that dumb folks can elect an empty shirt.

>>> passed a package that is helping to revive our economy,

You're referring to the "stimulus" that failed to stimulate?

>>> passed healthcare,

You're referring to the healthcare bill that was shoved down the throats of the American people and now has 60% of the country calling for it's repeal?

>>> and is in line to pass financial reform,

The next step in Obama's socialist agenda that will likely be shot down.

>>> lots of people on this board can't come up with enough reasons why President Obama already somehow already has failed at everything

The proof is in the pudding...and in his low, low approval numbers.

>>> as if he left the office in shambles like the last President they don't talk about so much.

I'd love to talk about Bush...pick a topic...but he's hardly relevant to the issues facing the country today, or Carter's...er...sorry...Obama's incredibly poor handling of them.

I guess that explains why the market has been tanking..."investor confidence."

>>> It's going to be like President Clinton again.

I think you're right...with Obama's recent election corruptions exposed I see an impeachment in his future.

>>> Republicans are going to cry their way to the bank as President Obama slowly but surely restores our fiscal house and brings balance back to America.

After Obama's handling of the economy I'm sure there are loads of Republicans crying...but I'm don't think spending trillions, raising taxes and causing energy bills to "necessarily skyrocket" will really do much to "restore our fiscal house."

Year to date isn't all that random.

I think it is important to look at what Obama does, not what he says, or what date he took office. As far as I can see, his priority is to increase the size of government, concentrate power there, and gain greater control over the liberty of the citizens of this country. The economy is of no concern.


But he is concerned about having people believe that big government and crushing debt will be great for the economy.


What he says does not matter. After the Massachusetts election, he claimed that he got the message. The message was that we don't want the government heath care plan. He didn't get it, because they immediately circumvented the election by going back and digging up a bill that was passed prior to the election and dumping that piece of garbage on us. Of course, he said otherwise.

My point is that, despite what Obama says, I don't believe that his actions are those that are aimed at getting us out of the economic down turn. He may be prolonging it through his actions.


I'm not sure where you stand, since you basically said that the stimulus bill could have helped the Dow, hurt it, or not effected it. Do you think Obama has taken steps that indicate that jobs and the economy are a number one priority?
