Didn't you use the argument in another thread that measuring GDP growth under Reagan was ill advised since it was measuring from an absolute bottom.

Wouldn't the same apply for the stock market under Obama?

Even if you remove 2009 and 2010 from equation, the Dow Jones increased by nearly 90% under Obama. Since speculation plays a huge role in the stock market, it's safe to say investors were feeling quite bullish during Obama's run.

We got it from you lefty idiots. First you all said the market would crash as soon as Trump was elected. When that didn't happen you said wait until October. Now you're saying wait 2 years.

Question:

Once Obama was elected, the market was in the shitter. Do you believe that the market went up because of Obama, or because that's what it naturally does when after it goes down?

More specifically, if McCain had won, do you think the stock market would have gone up just the same? Or do you believe Obama implemented policies (which ones?) that helped boost the market?

Not to mention the historic low interest rates during Obama's term and I believe there was not even one rate hike during his term. There was really no way for the market to go but up after pumping trillions into the stock market and historically low interest rates.

Yup, and the streak is over:

The BLS is blaming the job losses on Harvey and Irma, forgetting that the country was still able to show net positive job growth even after Sandy and Katrina devastated multiple states.
