    Yeah the Poor Earnings Reports had nothing to do with it.

    Right?

    What was the Washington Redskins connection that held true for so long?

    This is an interesting topic. Well, to me it is.

    Of course, there's no connection between the two right now. However, speculation is that if Romney wins, the market spikes but could sell off because A.) It will be less likely a deal gets done before the fiscal cliff, and B.) he fires Bernanke and replaces him with John Taylor. Both of those could precipitate 20%+ declines.

    Didn't the market fall a bunch right after Bush won in 2000?

    Yep, the DOW went down over economic concerns... people want economic recovery so Romney's numbers went up.

    Simple really~

    Obummer or Rummey it will make no difference. At least to the working class.

    The NEXT Prez inherits the biggest financial mess of the past 100 years.

    You just have to be stupid to want to be him....
