    Markets are up. Unemployment is down. Osama Bin Laden is dead.

    You may be drinking bubble-up and eating rainbow stew, but the OBL poll bump only lasted a week, unemployment is only slightly better, and I'm not certain what "Markets are up" has to do with anything Obama has done, but I am sure you haven't a clue.

    The markets are up largely due to the dollar dropping in value.

    Obama has done a remarkable job given that the Republican Party and the New Right stonewalled his every effort to repair the damage he inherited from Bush&Co. Since President Obama was nominated, he has faced total, lock-step opposition on every issue by a minority which resents losing their hold on the White House; a party which has adopted an Ends/Means strategy to return a Republican to the White House at any cost.

    And in your case the appropriate quote is:

    "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."
