    For those depending on positive returns for stocks in
    the next several years, the future is bleak. Stocks are tanking due
    to Obama policies. Bailing out companies isn't going to fix
    the problems that Obama is creating. The stocks will suffer.

    Most know it takes longer for the stock markets to go up than down.

    However most don't realize that this time it's different.
    Stocks now are entering a prolonged bear market that will last
    for years. Watch and learn how "Change" works.

    they started tanking after the house / senate went under democrat control.

    Up intil 2006 the economy was doing fairly well. Gas was low as well.

    Under bush, the dow hit its highest point ever. under Obama so far, it's dipped lowest since 1997.

    Stock experts know that inflation is bad for stocks.
    Even liberal Warren Buffet thinks inflation is coming from
    Obama's spending. Hence stocks are in trouble for
    this coming reason, if Buffet is correct.

    It's true there is a financial problem unrelated to Obama, but that doesn't change the fact that the market has predictably reacted to Obama, and policies he supports negatively.

    it also has reacted to other things that have happened...at the same time...like AIG posting a 61.7 Bill $ loss in the 4rth qt...Also just because the market does not like it, does not mean its not right...the market loved all the things that lead to this crash in the first place...did not make it correct.

    Putting the markets reaction a whole month into office, as a sign of if any econ plan will work is just stupid. Its like saying a stock is bad becuse it had a few down days and then selling rather then looking at long term.

    Pocket - Do you notice how Obama remains silent while stocks tank.

    He could say he is going to help stocks, but he doesn't.

    His policies can't and he likes what he sees as far as stocks go.

    The more pain, the more governement takeover is possible.

    He talks about taxing the rich, which doesn't help.

    so you say he should not bail out becuse it makes stocks drop. but then say but he is not doing anything to make stocks go up? make up your mind

    Simple fact for you, Obama cant make stocks go up or down. Nor does short term gains and or losses mean much about if the policy works or not.

    Bailing out never makes stocks go up. It's a short term fix, that ultimately causes a crash. By fix, I mean that it holds off failure for a company, that ultimately will fail. In the long run, the company bailed out will still fail, only now it will suck down billions of tax dollars too.

    We want him to do something that will help stocks, but that is the reverse. What Obama needs to do to help stocks, is reduce or eliminate the capital gains tax, and reduce income tax. Or reduce regulations. Any of these will have a positive effect, and reducing capital gains could give a boost to the stock market almost instantly.

    Of course, Obama isn't going to do any of those because it would highlight that less government intervention is the answer. Instead he'd rather expand government straight into another great depression.

    Pocket.

    the problem mostly is that he really doesn't have an absolute plan and that the plan he proposed -proposes - will cancel out any good in any of the other plans. So markets will react to the UNKNOWN!

    Just like with little Timmy G was announcing the plans for the Banks and really was no plan. He couldn't even testify that anything he said would work for certain.

    People will have hope for only so long... then they want action. And so far, there has been little hope, and I don't see any action. at least not any positive action

    The same way; it's a fact that the government can't control mortgage interest rates. However, he's outthere selling his pork programs by telling everyone that the government will offer loans with low interest rates, as low as 4%. That's total bool shiiit...

    The comments from Barack Hussein Obama make investors leery. His speeches sound like his going to nationalized banks and he will tax the rich and give to the poor....
