1. So in Octobre 2012,(I recall it) your broker advised you dump your stocks. DJIA then was 15,000 and today, is 15,000. So you would not have lost or gained, except for dividends which on the whole have been pretty good. But had you kept your stocks and sold them 2 weeks ago, you would've made a tidy profit, no? Your broker also forecast a DJIA meltdown before the end of 2012. Hmmm, he's almost 9 months late now. Ever given any thought to switching broker?Rogue Scholar 05 wrote:
Jacqueau, good news, after eight down days for the stock market, it is ticking up today. Maybe it will get back above 15,000 again before Obummer Boy leaves office.<quoted text>
Not bad news for me. My broker advised me first to dump APPL and then drop all of my stocks as he knows that just as soon as QE III ends, the market will have a full correction of at least 10%, the unemployment will go back over 10% and we will be in a fault blown recession. And it is all because of Obama's smoke and mirrors.
And G.W. is not more responsible for the stock market dive in 2007 when Bill Clinton was for the DOT.COM bubble bursting in 1999.
But G.W. fixed the economy in 1981 and the everything returned even hotter than before.
The problem is, except for printing Obama Bauck, Obama has depressed the economy, not fixed it! He is more concerned about his job-killing progressive agenda than putting America back to work!
We have eight million few Americans employed than when Bush left the White House and another three million who are now part-time employed. In fact 65% of all new jobs are part time jobs which only gets people off of unemployment and does nothing to improve their lives.
Yep, it is called Stagflation!!! You Libtards coined that term and then it bit you in the butt during the election of 1980 and will probably do it again to you in 2014's election.
2. Yes, 8 million more Americans unemployed than before Bush left office. But what you fail to factor into that number is that by the end of 2009, fully 11 months after Obama took over, unemployment was hitting 11%. Do you really believe, do you, that less than 11 months in office for Obama could reverse the employment downturn that spawned from GWB's bubble burst, recession, catastrophe, call it what you may? Really? Unemployment is back to what it was in Jan 09 when Obama took over. And yes, there may be 8 million more unemployed now (according to your numbers). But what was the population 5 years ago and the population today? How many more university graduates and dropouts have entered the market since then?
3. Funny, you hark back to the 1980s to explain what you describe as a dire economic situation. 1980s!!! Yet, when some blame is rightly aimed at GWB for US and world recession, you attack by stating that "hey, are you gonna blame GWB forever, he's not president anymore blah blah blah".
