It means zilch. There are a dozen reason this could be happening, none of which point to Obama's policies being smart, needed or even useful. Most likely, the temporary stimulus drove most of that money into the market by artificially lowering the returns on everything else. Where else can you go if Uncle Sam is setting interest rates at basically zero? But that's ALL done with borrowed money: either from the Chinese in the near future or our grandchildren in the longer run. It's like a legal ponzi scheme cooked up by the Fed to help re-elect Obama.<quoted text>Call me when it hits 14,000.........or will that be rigged like the jobs numbers too.
Or maybe the market was pleased to see Obama's total melt-down in Denver. Who knows? One thing is certain: Obama is still a clueless failure who has done nothing but make our debt rocket to the moon.
You can slice & dice it a million ways, but that $17 trillion is not going away anytime soon. It's as if you gave your teenage your credit card willingly and told him to do whatever he wishes. You now OWE for everything he did with it, no matter how childish or stupid.
