Lol!! Funny that I struck a nerve with both your personalities so much so that you had to speak with both. You're such a dumb dick! The stock market was doing just fine before the terrorist attack. We had many up swings before and after, giving you many opportunities to be the hypocrite you are. Are you denying the stock market ever went up during the Bush years? Answer the question fukface!

Poor pipedream, TJHancock is just a right wing hate machine. Again, your ignorance exposes your stupidity and your profane polluted brain.

I will excuse you to a point since you have been mentally crippled by obozo's rhetoric and you are not smart enough to know when you are being lied to.

Keep trying though and you may have an intelligent break through .... NOT!

LOL at liberals.

Keep drinking out of the Obama punch bowl you stupid ape! Hahaha if you think the Obama administration is the only thing that drives the market, you're even DUMBER than my dump I took just now. If you want to appear intelligent, do yourself a favor and clam up. Save your fat lipped mouth for honkey dick, the only thing that keeps food in your cupboard!
lol nah I realize Obama can't get all the credit but he is the President and he's doing good things or the market wouldn't have performed so well. But getting back to your stupid comment,-- my post that you're referring to had to do with a comment your son the twerp made in reply to to Blue citing gains in the general economy and how well the stock market has improved since Obama took office. I just pointed to facts that made you and your son look stupid again. I guess neither of you have figured out yet just how well the market and economy is doing compared to what it did when the big dickhead Georgie was in charge. Just consider what Bush left Obama and what Obama had to deal with when he took office. Remember that Azz-Hole?

Too bad you're unable, unwilling or unqualified for a job that pays enough so you too can benefit from investing in the market or enjoying other benefits that come from earning a living wage. Must suck to look into the mirror everyday, see yourself looking back and then have to reflect on the pathetic and miserable life you've created for yourself. Your outlook might improve when you adjust that stick of wood you like shoving in your ass.

What mess Bush left obozo? That's a laugh! What about the mess that obozo left obozo?

The country was in much worse shape in 2012 than it was in 2008. Obozo is his own worst enemy. Think of all the screw ups he and his band of incompetents have created in the last years. Nothing but a constant parade of scandals and effups.

Have you seen? He is now rated the worst president since WWII. Congratulations to Jimmah Caater. At least Jimmah was one of those EEEVVVIILLLL Christians.

Perhaps you should think before you post? When GW was President and the Dow was in record territory, all we heard was, "The Dow means nothing so GW is not doing anything worth talking about. He's still stupid." NOW, you think Obama should get credit for the Dow? As I said, hypocrisy is becoming rampant.

STFU twerp. Facts aren't one of your strong points are they? Now define hypocrite for us big mouth.
The Bush Stock Market Collapse
Here’s a BushToll nugget that pretty much speaks for itself. When George W. Bush took office on Jan. 20, 2001, the S&P 500 stock market index stood at $1,342.54. The day he left office, it was $805.22, a drop of 40 percent
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fared a bit better. It dropped only 25 percent. Sadly, the tech-heavy NASDAQ shed 48 percent of its value on President Bush’s watch.
Since Jan. 20, 2009, the date President Obama took office, through Dec. 23, 2013 the Nasdaq has increased by 188 percent, the S&P 500 by 127 percent, and the Dow Industrial Average by 105 percent.

An added benefit for you is this article is loaded with colored charts to help you understand how stupid you are.
We can't argue with facts, can we. A.H.?
Your ignorance is amazing. How do you manage to live an breathe with such an empty space in your head?

Emotional dribble/racist idiocy has nowhere to turn when assaulted by facts. The stock market goes up and down daily, this is the nature of trade dimwit. Still, during Bush's tenure the stock market set records for loss. Under Obama, it has not only rebounded, but excelled. Btw, it was the subprime mortgage crisis of 2008 that deflated the economy, not 9/11. Obama came in to these deficits and soaring unemployment, under his lead, our economy has stabilized and begun to recover. The Great Recession is just one of W's many epic fails.
Great, just what is needed, another revisionist history clown.

I'll give you 'in a nutshell' you simplistic fat fuk.
Do 2 minutes worth of research and you'll see Dodd and Frank had nothing to do with the housing market collapse. It was greed and corruption of Wall Street brokers and traders, SUBPRIME MORTGAES which were being peddled and were the direct result of deregulation of mortgage underwriting guidelines, predatory lending, house flippers hoping for huge gains, real estate investors, realtors, corrupt investment rating agencies, mortgage brokers and domestic and foreign investors jumping in not wanting to be left out of money being made. Yes, it was Greed and corruption which fueled lots and lots of investors jumping in making BIG $$$$ and by 2006 there was a housing bubble that in 2008 that bubble bust and led the the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. Guess who was president then and he was warned about it well in advance but did nothing but sit back because lots of his friends in Wall Street, banking, real estate and construction industries were making money hand over fist.
No don't even try running your Bull Shit by me or anyone else that it was Dodd and Frank that caused it all. Take all that greed and corruption that existed at the time and anything Dodd and Frank did to promote home ownership would have been a great thing.
The financial crisis and near collapse of the banking industry is on none other than Bush 43 because he was head guy at that time and was being warned regularly about it but did nothing to prevent it, in fact promoted it, promoted further DEREGULATION of the financial industry!
Shocker - you provided nothing of proof to undermine the fact it was Dodd/Frank's ridiculous meddling, but you radical retards are going blame Bush anyway, despite his warnings, simply because he was president at the time.

YET, this current president is given a pass from the multitude of scandals and corruption during his term simply by saying, "It wasn't my fault, I learned about it on TV just like you folks!"

In the ass-backwards world of the regressive party, claiming ignorance excuses ineptitude. It makes sense when you look at the below-average educated Obama voter.

I told you where to find the proof A.H. now go find and STFU. Neither Dodd nor Frank had anything to do with Bush's assholery and mismanagement that caused the housing market crash.
