DOW down...778 points

The DOW crashed nearly 778 points today - the biggest point drop in history. So let's review again, if you had had $100 in the market while Bill was prez, you would now have $328. If you had had $100 in the market while W was prez, you would now only have $97.

Over time, the market is supposed to be a good investment, to the tune of 10%. It is almost a rule that the market always rises in a given 10 year period. W is close to breaking that rule. The market has fallen over 200 points while he has been in office - that's a NEGATIVE .03% rate of return.

These are not abstract ideas! These are your parent's retirements! This is your retirement. And Bush and McCain wanted to put Social Security in the stock market too.

Heckuva job, Bushie. Heckuva job, McCain. Heckuva job, ASSHATS.
