President Obama and his White House staff are making mistakes that continue to worsen an already deflating U.S. economy.
As the stock market plunged below the Dow's 7,000 mark -- a loss of 1,500 points since his inauguration -- Obama casually dismissed the sharp drop in equity values, comparing it to the ups and downs of a poll.
The stock market "is sort of like a tracking poll in politics," he told news reporters. "You know, it bobs up and down day to day. And if you spend all your time worrying about that, then you're probably going to get the long-term strategy wrong."
Excuse me? Tracking poll? That's like dismissing a severed hand as a hangnail.

Please someone, send the messiah an “OVERCHARGE” button
Maybe they have an extra one at the State Dept
Between Obama and “Stand Up Chuck!” Biden, there is enough material on them to make Dan Quayle look like the world’s smartest man.
Of course, since they are Democrats I won’t hold my breath that the rest of the world notices.
I'm waiting for his racist radical wife to say "Let them eat cake ..."
As the Mogambo Guru has been saying for some time now, we are so freaking doomed.
“The stock market “is sort of like a tracking poll in politics,” he told news reporters.”
Actually he’s right. The market downturn pretty much mirrors his own poll numbers sinking.
Wasn’t that just priceless?
We need a bumper sticker for that!
Government = an “Easy” button that says “Overcharge”
The Messiah needs to know that for many retired seniors “long term strategy” is not a reality. They have to live in the here and now and don’t have ten plus years to give to his peculiar brand of economic hopey-changiness. For millions of others, retirement has been put on hold indefinitely.
The man has no clue that this “tracking poll” reflects REAL MONEY. Of course, why would he - he’s never had any private sector experience.
0-vercharge. 0-pression. It's all coming together.
Real senior citizens too, who probably voted for him, watching their nest eggs vanish. And to Obama it's just a game, like tracking polls. 0-pression.
It would be nice if he could recognize that the numbers reflect big business and investor activity which is pretty much American business sentiment. Obviously the markets project and are discounting their expectations of the “successful” future that he and is team are promoting.
The business community has outright rejected a successful obama outcome. Obviously this man wants to be blind to whats good for the people.....jobs and an economy.
As the number of Hollywood White House parties continues to accumulate, the concept of "fiddling while Rome burns" also comes to mind.
Wonder if the Christians will get blamed again...

I think that lately he puts it as, "Were soooOOooo freaking dooOOOooomed!".
Wait until Easter. It won’t be eggs that are getting rolled...it will be citizens! That’s the Chicago Style. God Save The Republic.
You know that big “Our National Debt” electronic display they’ve got? Has it caught fire yet?
Cept if your retired this “tracking poll” is costing you everything.
Pray for America, Our Troops and obama’s Failure
