The Obama BOOM

Conservatives in print, broadcast, and online have tried to make hay about the market going down in the last few weeks - trying lamely to tie it to Obama's election despite the evidence to the contrary that the market downturn for the past year to year and a half is a clear outgrowth of Republican neglect of government watchdogging - so according to their silly standard Obama is making the market boom. Since his pick of Treasury secretary last Friday the Dow is up about 600 points.
