    My my - how time does fly, ay?

    A mere 6 months ago, Mr "I won" was enjoying a ride in the clouds as the 53'ers celebrated the election of a man who spent 143 days in the Illinois state senate and was then prodded to run for the White House by a racist "preacher" and an anti-American domestic terrorist. This was the man who was going to stop the rise of the oceans, heal the rain forests and no doubt usher in the 2nd coming of Christ, all because he was elected to the White House.

    But - after one very unstimulating "stimulus", auto bailouts, TARP I (and all its facets), talk of a second "stimulus", Obamacare and Cap & Trade....Some of those 53'ers are finally "getting it". They're seeing the Barack Obama everyone else told them about, during the two year run up to the November '08 elections. They are stunned. They are shaken. And they are embarrassed. How...Oh how could they have voted for such an absolute liberal fascist?

    I have but one thing to say to them: "How does it feel to be taken for a ride by a typical two-bit race-pimping chicago thug"?

    After MANY YEARS of government ignoring its people....After MANY YEARS of government spending way too much money on way too many things that aren't necessary to "form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty"....Is it any wonder why the "Tea Parties" attract conservatives, liberals, independents, and all kinds from in-between?????

    These approval ratings are low because this kind of success not yet making it's way down to the middle class.

    The good news is that it will, companies are starting to turn profits again and some confidence is beginning to be restored during this rally. Naturally this will result in more jobs and higher approval ratings. As Obama, I would trade low approval ratings now at the hands of a vicious attack machine for higher ratings when the ratings actually matter.

    The markets are starting to rally out of this recession, the NASDAQ is having historical success right now and the Dow is making the long climb back at a suprising pace. Continued success in the marketplace and fairly certain passage of the Obama healthcare bill will coincide in a hiring boom. Kinda funny that around this time just last year Republicans enjoyed a short-lived time atop the polls after the Palin nom... the coming down to earth this time around will probably be no less dramatic than it was then.

    Would those be the same 'evil' companies that Obama and his buddies are always slamming for being 'greedy'? Now they need those same companies to make a profit, and get the economy moving again, and they're forced to be happy for them.

    I'd bet that goes down well with his morning muffins....

    Bush was in charge when the stock market went to 14,000...and all dems could do was bitch and moan about those same 'greedy' companies, 'the rich' and CEO's.


    I love it when liberals have to turn around and kiss the same arses they had to verbally 'kick' only months before.

    So, you want the government to CONTINUE to ignore the people ?

    The American people want a public option. Should the President ignore the people ?

    Hiring booms don't count when they involve government workers.. They are a net-negative.
    Obama-if you're being run out of town, get out in front and pretend that it's a parade!!!

    IMO, the market rally is a false one and only reflects the fact that the corporations that are listed are slashing costs with a machete. Layoffs, off-shoring, cutting inventories to the bone will only work for so long. What happens when there are no more cost-cutting measures to be made and profits are still circling the bowl?

    Companies are making profits now though, so logically they will start to expand again after the massive contraction. That's capitalism, right?

    Not if they're taxed for a higher profit.
    That's socialism, right?

    By the end of the year the Magic Negro ratings will be much lower. No way in hell will companies start hiring with the uncertainty that cap and trade and health care costs will not devastate their profits. Add min. wage and you have a recession that will linger on for years along with very high unemployment. The O is going to make Carter look like a genius.

    Many of those companies that are reporting profits have laid off employees, reduced stock, reduced overtime, reduced hours worked and have used legal accounting tools to distort their bottom line. Now that they have cut the fat to the bone, it will be interesting to see how those profits pan out in the 3rd and 4th quarter. I think the shit is going to hit the fan now they have run out of bullets to improve their profits.

    You really don't know shit about business. You would not last 3 months running one because you are too stupid.
