Look at the charts, dumbass. The two months following the election are bumpy but show no major decline.
You musty like being shown to be wrong all the time.
I guess that fancy public education didn't teach you how to read graphs. Talk about ignorant--your own link proves my point. Nov 5, 2008:The stock market posted its biggest plunge ever following a presidential election.

You don't matter any more.
Of course, Obammy in his own mind, is blameless as usual. His mind and the low-informed, like you.

And could there be more convincing proof that President Obama is more concerned about himself than he is about the Americans he is supposed to serve than his Monday morning speech defending the disastrous Obamacare rollout rather than apologizing for it?

Could there be more compelling evidence that he is first and foremost a SAUL ALINSKY AGITATOR than the fact that he took the offense and attacked Republicans for fighting him on the budget -- a fight that in no way caused any rollout problems -- rather than humbly admit these inexcusable and humiliating problems?

Democrats and the LIBERAL MEDIA SAVAGED President George W. BUSH for allegedly never admitting a policy mistake. Can you fantasize them expressing disenchantment with Obama on these grounds, with far more justification?

OBAMA WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR ANYTHING. Instead, he pretends everything he touches is golden, as if to say, "Don't believe your lying eyes, and especially don't believe partisan Republicans, who simply want to embarrass me."

But EVEN SOME OF THE LIBERAL MEDIA ARE NOT BUYING INTO HIS PROPAGANDA on Obamacare. They're acknowledging that more than glitches are involved.

USA Today described Obama's remarks as "defiant."

National Journal's Ron Fournier said that "Obama should be freaked out over Obamacare," that "it reflects poorly on the president" and that "it's worse than we know, this is the easy part, and millions of Americans could be hurt."

BUT OBAMA MUST NOT SHOW WEAKNESS, EXCEPT WHEN DEALING WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS.

More to the point, it's not just that he won't show weakness; it's that the FAILURE OF HIS POLICIES doesn't even register with him.

He's an incorrigible ideologue whose perception of his failed policies is that they actually are working because the liberal academics' chalkboard predicted they would work -- so they do. It can't be otherwise.

Apparent failures are an illusion, mostly created by intractable Republicans.

Despite reports that his group is nearly broke, FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe predicted in an interview with MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Monday that his group would help Tea Party Republicans dominate the GOP within a year.

“I think it’s a process,” Kibbe told Matthews.“I think it happens by 2014,’cause we’re trying to shift the center of gravity.”

Kibbe did note that he favored supporting moderate Republicans in liberal-leaning states, but southern states like South Carolina should be represented by a “hardcore constitutional conservative that doesn’t want to spend money we don’t have.”

However, Daily Beast correspondent Michael Tomasky challenged Kibbe’s forecast, calling it “delusional” and blaming the Tea Party for costing the GOP in states like New York and California.

“You remember, Chris: It was only 15, 20 years ago, the Republican party was competitive to dominant in California,” Tomasky told Matthews.“But [now] it’s dead. It’s dead because it’s gone so far right, and it’s gonna stay dead in states like California and New York. All they’re gonna do is play in these deep red states and they’re gonna elect more radical and extreme people.”

That's no surprise. ObamaKare is just another Marxist welfare program. Nobody is going to volunteer to pay for what someone else should be paying for themselves.
Those living on the government plantation enroll in existing welfare programs like Medicaid. This was predicted before the Democrats forced it down everyone's throat.

Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on, this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..
.
That is WHY some of us choose to remain Independent voters. Doing so allows us to vote with better conscience based upon PRINCIPLES, rather than herd pack, lemming, labelDUHM party labels.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely-no matter the sticky note label attached to it.

And if the current admin were seeking to follow actual principles, rather than megalomaniacal poliTical power grabs-they would've already COMPROMISED on the mounds beaurocraTic monstrous mess of out of control healthcare, and admit, they've fallen SHORT of fixing ANYTHING--and DELAYED PUNISHING innocent, struggling hard working people, for their own LACK of vision in how thing SHOULD work, rather than focusing on protecting the current MESS at all COSTS to EVERYONE, as if it were some sort of all perfect, grand design.

Because it's NOT.

And they should absolutely NOT be taxing and fining ANYONE, for such UNSECURED, UNVERFIABLE, UNFUNDED, UNSTABLE outcomes of Not Ready for prime time anything, let alone PURGE citizens of this nation into HIPPA violations and breaches of security, with out as much as a blink of an eye as to the ramifications of such RECKLESS abandonment.
And the fact that "leadership" would even venture to utter ANY words that condemn the attempts at something that demands such collosal efforts, and instead would allow OTHERS to shoulder the blame for releasing such NOT ready for prime time beaurocracy speaks volumnes unto itself--of the INEPTNESS and LACK of any REAL "leadership" these days.

If they'd acted like half reasonable adults, willing to work WITH others logically , rather than petulantly AGAINST everything, like three years having temper tantrums, it might be different. But they haven't, choosing to instead act like commie-dictators demanding it all "their way" or not at all, which just amounts to yet more FAILURE in actual leadership, in an admin now rife with it.

No matter the labelduhm label.

Congress shut down the parts when they refused to fund them.
"A 2010 Congressional Research Service report summarized other details of the 1995-1996 government shutdowns, indicating the shutdown impacted all sectors of the economy. Health and welfare services for military veterans were curtailed; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stopped disease surveillance; new clinical research patients were not accepted at the National Institutes of Health; and toxic waste clean-up work at 609 sites was halted. Other impacts included: the closure of 368 National Park sites resulted in the loss of some seven million visitors; 200,000 applications for passports and 20,000 to 30,000 applications for visas by foreigners went unprocessed each day; U.S. tourism and airline industries incurred millions of dollars in losses; more than 20% of federal contracts, representing $3.7 billion in spending, were affected adversely."
Closure of national parks.,
Again, you are shown to be wrong.
My God, get better informed. You are embarrassing yourself.
the open-air Memorials along with National Mall WERE NOT closed during the last government shutdown in 1995-1996. According to the Associated Press in an article from December 17, 1995:

“Tourists were free to wander the halls of the Capitol, touch the walls of the Vietnam Memorial and climb the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to read the Gettysburg Address – those and other similar sites don’t require supervision by federal employees.”

This picture below from 1995 shows how the visitors’ information center at the Lincoln Memorial was closed during the shutdown, but the public was still able to visit the site. This makes perfect sense. What the O'bama Administration did made no sense-of course Americans would expect nothing less from O'bama.

Here is the problem with the ObamaKare website:
DataTables is free, open source software that you can download and use for whatever purpose you wish, on any and as many sites you want. It is free for you to use! DataTables is available under two licenses: GPL v2 license or a BSD (3-point) license, with which you must comply (to do this, basically keep the copyright notices in the software).
For some reason, this clown act Obama has decided to eliminate the copyright notices from the software, setting off software bombs.
Every problem with the website was caused by Obama's "programmers" violating the copyright agreement and removing the copyright notices from the code... for some reason.
Now, why would anyone use free software, then change the code to make it appear as if they weren't using that software?
This is just part of being a pathological liar. It was important to them for ignorant people to think they are smart enough to write the code for the ObamaKare website.
The truth is, this is just another case where Al Bundy could be our president. His plan A blows up in his face, and he doesn't have a plan B.
This is not only the most incompetent administration in the history of this country, it is probably the most incompetent administration of any country in the history of civilization.
So, how much more money will it cost us to fix Barack Bundy's stupidity?
And, when will you dupes wake up?
Keep trying Doofus. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

Al Bundy would actually make a better president than Obama. He realizes how stupid he is after his plan blows up in his face. Obama doesn't have a clue how stupid he is. Even after the obvious buffoonery that caused the ObamaKare website to crash over and over, he still thinks he's smart. You can't get more stupid than that.
