Lie after lie after lie after lie after lie after lie. When will we impeach this CLOWN???? Obama is in bed with the Big Bankers who want to fleece the investing public with all of this talk of RECOVERY, RECOVERY, RECOVERY. THERE IS NO RECOVERY. The reality is that more and more people will be suckered into the stock market and then the Big Banks will take short positions on the stock market and bring it down again. The investors lose and the Big Bankers win. That is the new reality in the economic world.
