    Hope and Change Update- Dow Jones falls below 10,000



    The Dow fell below 10,000 Thursday for the first time since last November amid worries about the US job market and Europe's ability to get a grip on its debt.

    In the final, hair-raising minute of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell below that 10,000 mark, before popping back up a few points to end at 10,002.18.

    It is only February. Some fluctuation of the markets are to be expected over the next 2.5 quarters. The key will be where the S&P 500 will be come next October.

    I wouldn't worry about this.

    The left and the MSM (is there a difference) will tell us that this was an "unexpected" drop

    People cashing in.
    Has nothing to do with political policy just as the increase of the last several months had nothing to do with it as well.

    Tell me about, did you see how the market fell right after Papa Obama got elected?
    :eusa_whistle:

    What were the figures at it's highest during those eight years?

    Truth is the worst enemy of the left - which is why you poorly attempted to avoid it

    Excuse me, I am a Republican Robot with a short memory who really tends to forget those little important details when spewing my partisan rubish. Where was the Dow around mid-March, 2009? Surely it must have been higher, like 1,000,000 or something, because the stimulus package hadnt yet been passed. I mean Obama single handedly while being born in Kenya caused the housing bubble to burst, a credit crisis, and like 9 trillion dollar national debt all before even becoming president.

    Of course Papa Obama's stimulus package did not do those things;
    in fact, it appears Papa Obama's Pork stimulus bill did not do anything (except put us more into debt)
    :eusa_angel:

    If the numbers in mid-March 2009 speak well of Papa Obama then the numbers of Oct 2007 (14,164) speak really well of Bush
