    Why is it "a stupid dumb assed post"? Did you read the entire Bloomberg article? Would it have been stupid if it were the other way around?

    BTW, you negged me within one minute after I posted the thread.

    It makes sense if you think about it. While stock market values are based largely on analyzing financial statements and determining the financial health of companies, a lot of the value is also based on blind consumer confidence. The left side is undisputedly more optimistic about the future, more into change and more into progress. If investors believed the Republican rhetoric about economical gloom and doom, the stock market wouldn't be doing nearly as well as it is.

    Ahhh, the next bubble to burst, compliments of the Dems!! Dot com, housing and now this. The stock market is an indication of a complete melt down, soon to be knock, knock, knocking at your door. Yea, the Dems want to claim credit for what's good but sure hand out the blame when it hits the fan.

    I think it all comes down to the republican habit of often using scare tactics.
