    Bush proved capitalism doesn’t work under Republicans with his too big to fail bailouts.

    wait ‘till this Obama bubble pops, already top investors are selling huge chunks of stock, hoping they are wrong and it doesn’t happen but expert say this so call “recovery” is floating on very shaky economic foundations…

    Bush only got talked into ONE bail-out….TARP…at the very end of his 8 year term…..and that was to the banks who were supposed to repay all the federal money.
    -
    Obama isn’t messing with the Stock Market….the Federal Reserve is……monthly buys of bonds and assets to the tune of $85 Billion until unemployment drops from 7.9% to 6.5%!
    ….this may be a Fed Reserve Bubble….perhaps bringing on another Recession? The DOW is not rising on citizens buying and selling which would point to a recovering economy; it is rising on Treasury Pumping Monopoly Money into the NYSE.

    Thanks, Howie, for recognizing that Bush’s deregulation crashed the market, it hit its lowest point as Obama was getting started, and Obama’s stimulus brought it back to where it was. It is too bad that while all of the benefits are going to the top 2% — stocks may be up, but employment and wages in the private sector are stagnant — and that all of the punishment that the GOP wants to dole out hits the poorest of the poor, the rich are of course untouchable.

    The DOW is doing well, but according to these articles and some more I found, 9% of our citizens OWN nearly 90% of the wealth.

    There’s nothing wrong with being wealthy, but how can a nation be great AND United if 9 of every 10 dollars is in the hands of 1 out every 10 citizens?

    ^But the feudalism current Republican policies call for, has failed many times. REGULATED capitalism is the only format that has worked, and “Reaganomics” abandons that.

    Corporations have figured out how to make a lot of money without employing people — or at least without employing people in the US.

    National Socialists took over the private sector in Germany. You couldn’t work w/o being a party member. Where, in any of History, can you find that Socialism=Capitalism?

    @Rad-ish

    Obama voted for the Bush Bailouts.
    Obama bailed out The Auto Industry and gave Banks more Tarp money at same time.

    @HOWGOZIT

    True but in ‘07 the FED’s ballance sheet showed we owed $890B to day over $3T, so when you own the printing press you can make believe all you want, PresBo’s fake Dow high.

    @DrCanuck

    Yup PresBo sure has, it’s only cost us $3T of fiat, FED notes, with no end in sight, Bernanke gets all the paper Barry need to make like we are afloat. House of cards.
