Romney asks, I answer

Mitt Romney: “ ‘Hope and Change’ had a powerful appeal. But tonight I'd ask a simple question:  If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now that he’s President Obama? You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”

On the eve of the 2008 elections, Nov 3, 2008,  S&P 500 closed at 952.77 and the Dow Jones closed at 9139.27.  As I write this, S&P 500 is at 1411.38 and the Dow Jones is at 13138.61.  As goes the stock market, so go my savings. As a person who saw his 401K reduce to 201K in the Bush years,  the good feeling on Nov 4, 2008 has only improved.
