rally on Wall Street sent stocks to fresh multiyear highs as investors welcomed the Federal Reserve's new bond-buying plan.
The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 207 points, or 1.6%, while the Nasdaq rose 1.3% and the S&P 500 gained 1.6%.
The day's gains pushed the Dow and S&P 500 to their highest closing levels since December 2007, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq finished at its highest level since November 2000.
Yeah I'd say President Obama is doing a great job on the economy.
Dirty secret is that the fed fears a double dip recession. They are probably right. Libs should elect Romney, then they can blame him.

That's Canadian Oil, not American oil and it's destined to be shipped from Texas to China and other ports over seas. That tar pit oil from Canada has never been proposed to be distributed in America.

That's a lie, just like the anticipated 1 Million Job Lie attached to that myth.

Last Republicans to sit in the White House caused a cascading of the Stock Market from 14,000 to 6500 and the loss of Trillions invested in equity accounts....... Americans were reduced to selling oranges and flowers at Xway exits, the job losses were so dramatic.

Romney over the last few weeks have proven himself irrational with the bone headed decisions he's made for his campaign. The fear now is one of his hair brain ideas could be as much a disaster for America as they have been for his campaign recently.... It's like he's stumbled into a million pieces......

Ignorant is kind of harsh...... there are two grizzly scenes I've seen no man should ever see. A Drowning Man, and a Man falling off a sky scraper....... Romney, and his supporters after imploding this week has that look.

Notice the Republicans trying to justify Romney's press conference concerning Libya? Symbolic of a gurgling man drowning in deep water.

This Campaign is over, through and finished..... All that remains is the releasing of the balloons and confetti.

Did I say it was American oil? Nope.

But you do know that oil is sold on the world market -- regardless of source. So as turmoil in the Middle East possibly increases, those sources become less stable and predictable.

If the US were producing more oil, yes, some would be shipped overseas.

What's wrong with that? Do you like being dependent on other countries for energy? What's wrong with a trade surplus?

"That tar pit oil from Canada has never been proposed to be distributed in America."

Hello? Anyone home? Sold on the world market to whomever buys it.

the Keystone Pipeline is not primarily intended and never was to provides access to American materials. That Pipeline is primary for transportation of Canadian Oil to Texas for shipment overseas......

So Republican Gov. Dave Heineman asked the wrong person to halt the pipeline? I guess Obama did have to have approval.

Sorry I'm none of the three, I'm just quoting the right's talking point of "Bush isn't President anymore."

In the news today: HHS Sect Sebelius found guilty of Hatch Act, unfair endorsement of obama for reelection.

Another obama disciple in blatant violation of the law. Remember, she's in charge of your health care now.

Of course if Romney released his tax records none of this would have happened.

Can you write exactly what this person DID that was so wrong?
Or is it so petty, and a desperate stretch, that it's not worth writing?

In the Feb. 25 speech to the Human Rights Campaign, Sebelius called for President Barack Obama’s re-election and endorsed a Democratic candidate Walter Dalton for governor while on company time, and not in her private time.
That was it!!
SHOCKING, and unforgivable...eh?
lol!

This actually makes you appear desperate and weak:(

...and FYI, she was not found guilty in a "court of law", she was found guilty by the "ethics office".

The ethics office found that Sebelius had made the speech in her official capacity, but departed from her prepared text and veered into politicking.

“While a violation of the Hatch Act occurred, Secretary Sebelius’ statements would have been permissible if they had been made in her personal capacity,” the report said.

In a formal response, Sebelius said that any violation was “technical and minor” and was corrected after her official trip was reclassified as political, and the government was repaid for her travel.

Are you really that upset?
WOW!
lol

If this is as bad as it gets, then that's pretty good!...eh?

...if you are worrieed about violating the law, then you should be up in arms that Romney won't pay taxes!
eh?
Unless you're simply biased?

It is really a shame that FOX is ganging up on CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Daily Kos and Media Matters other 38 outlets.
They are such brutes.
Hey Le Dumbo, I see you are still on this site spreading hate and misinformation. I was doing the math and you have average 54 post per day over the last 4 years. Do you have a life or do you just sit in your parents basement posting a bunch of made up crap on topix 24/7? You are a loser and an idiot! Get a life and stop touching your self.
