    I'm sure that's true---any poll that omits 41% of the people has gotta be trusted.

    Still trying to figure out the thread title.
    But to answer your question, normal market fluctuations and correction. Bubbles occur, then they burst. Other than partisan politics I don't understand why people are blaming all of the above, especially the presidents. Peoples' greed, not any of the above cause bubbles and bursts. The above can influence the degree of the bubble or burst but not by much, this has been proven though out history. Also "planned" economies are usually the last to be hit with a bust but generally suffer the worst and the longest.

    If the whole idea is 'blaming' someone I'm surprised the Fed was left out.

    I think Dr. Grump is making fun of all the threads saying:

    "Obama Down 33%!"


    "Sarah Up 22%"

    "49% Say Golfing is Hazardous to your Marriage!"

    Stop being a pedant...do I really have to PM a mod to put the word 'least' in there?

    On a serious note with regard to greed - I think that's where the 12 percent with regard to banks comes in. Pure, unadulterated greed..

    The politicians can take some of the blame depending on what legislation they passed...
