    Mmm, so delicious. I could feast all night on the hypocrisy of John Boehner. So filling. :)

    Leave the guy alone, Robert. He's pretty much keeping the tanning bed industry afloat by himself.

    John Boehner is an assclown. He is about as partisan as a Republican can be. There are some good people in the Republican party, but he isn't one of them. Anyone who takes what he says seriously needs to re-evaluate their reason for being involved in politics. This isn't the first time he has spoken out from both sides of his ass. err...mouth.

    If Obama said those things I would be forced to agree...and I am by no means an Obama supporter.
    What Boehner said is 100% accurate.
    In 2006..and during anytime of prosperity, the market is an indicator of a surging economy
    After a crash..or serious downturn....during a recession...an increase in the market is attributed to those wityh some equity taking advantage of good deals on stock and not at all an indicator of economic growth...

    During a recession...you need to look at GDP and job gains to see if we are recovering.

    Those that look at market swings are those that have no clue...no offense meant....aww...heck....offense meant.

    As one who invests...

    During times of prosperity, I buy a stock that is priced at a fair value and I lookk at its R and D and hiring acitivity to determine where it may go.

    During recessions, I buy a stock based on what it was before the recession as it is a good deal and I gamble that it will rebound when the recession is over.

    What Boehner said was 100% accurate.

    Hiring has not increased one iota...so exactly why is it good economic news that stock prices have risen? People are simply taking in good deals.

    Oh just STFU and admit that the GOP and Boenher himself INVESTED in the fact that they hoped Obama would fail. Now that the stock market is back about 10,000, they are scrambling to cover their asses....

    STFU and tell us about the job creation. Are you saying that next month we'll see a reduction in unemployment?
