Utter nonsense.

“The S&P 500 has gained 76% since his [Obama’s] inauguration in January 2009, while the Nasdaq 100 is up 128%.

“Compare that to the S&P 500’s 13% decline and the Nasdaq 100’s 45% wipeout in the first term of his predecessor, George W. Bush; or the mere 25% gain in the first term of conservative icon Ronald Reagan; or even the 60% gain in the halcyon early 1990s in the first term of Bill Clinton.”

The Stock Market has every reason to love Obama: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/where-to-put-your-money-if-obama-wins-2012-11-06

The Market will be up again soon. If not tomorrow, then maybe next week.

And I’m not happy about it: a bunch of gamblers who contribute nothing to the economy and are on welfare from the Fed, should not be rewarded for wrecking the economy and savings for people who do real work for a living.

The stock markets, for whatever reason, will probably not suffer too greatly, even if the rest of the economy goes down the crapper.
