    I believe Wall Street is trying to tell Obama what it thinks of his policies. After his speach Wall Street tanks. But I'm sure somehow he will try to make us believe it's Bushes' fault. Wait till Friday's job numbers come in.

    I wish there was a way to get him out of office NOW !!!

    Look at the good point, wholesale gasoline went down $0.30! They'll be out changing the pumps any minute now. Now we can afford the trip to the Grand!

    Nine days in a row capped by today's 500+ point plunge in the DOW. Worst since Jimmy Carter in 1978.

    That's what happens when you elect Presidents based on skin color.

    This is proof that the debt ceiling deal was nothing but B.S. designed to fool the people. It didn't fool the markets for one minute. The markets would have reacted better to our honestly refusing to raise the ceiling, and show we are serious about getting our spending under control, and salvaging the dollar, than they have to this smoke and mirrors circus politics show.

    Not Obama,s fault, the whole world economy and finacial crisis has been festering for years ,country,s throughout the world have been spending, and spending, not paying off their debts including the USA , it,s complicated folks so don,t blame one person . The lawmakers of all countries just spend but a day of reckoning is finally coming home to roost. The problem will get worse before it will get better . USA also needs tax reform. 49 % do not pay taxes for one reason or another like rich people & big corporations . Time they coughed up to help balance the books .At least this is an opinion shared by many,regardless of political affiliation, just some politicians won,t say it publicaly for fear of not geting re elected so they can wallow at the trough
