BREAKING: Dow Jones Closes Above 13,000 For The First Time Since May 2008

Via: Think Progress

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed over 13,000 for the first time since May 19, 2008.

The stock market is now up over 56 percent since Obama took office.

Today, the stock market was buoyed, in the view of one economist, by “job and income gains…leading to higher confidence and spending growth, in turn driving further spending gains.

Obama Attacks Romney at UAW

Via: Atlantic Wire

President Obama, launching his most direct campaign attack yet at a Republican foe, on Tuesday mocked Mitt Romney’s stance on the automobile industry, telling autoworkers that the former Massachusetts governor’s recent statements are an effort to “rewrite history” and “a load of you-know-what.”

The stinging assault on Romney came in remarks to the United Auto Workers convention in Washington on the day of the Michigan primary, after a campaign in which Romney has tried to wriggle out of his controversial opposition to efforts by TWO PRESIDENTS to rescue the auto industry in 2008 and 2009.

~~~

Obama challenged “the naysayers” to admit they were wrong to oppose the rescue efforts, to “finally come around and say that standing by American workers was the right thing to do.”

~

After quoting again from Romney’s article, Obama added,

“I’ve got to admit, it’s been funny to watch some of these folks completely try to rewrite history now that you’re back on your feet.

The same folks who said if we went forward with our plan to rescue Detroit, ‘you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.’

Now they’re saying we were right all along. Or… worse, they’re saying that the problem is that you, the workers, made out like bandits in all of this; that saving the American auto industry was just about paying back unions.”

Incredulously, the president asked: “Really?” He added, “I mean, even by the standards of this town, that’s a load of you-know-what. About 700,000 retirees saw a reduction in the health care benefits they had earned.

Many of you saw hours reduced, or pay and wages scaled back.

You gave up some of your rights as workers. Promises were made to you over the years that you gave up for the sake and survival of this industry, its workers, and their families.”

Noted Economist Rick Santorum: Witch Obama Caused Housing Crash

Via: Wonkette

Smegma-lipped poutmonster Rick Santorum, continuing his streak of saying only and at all times sensible and logically sound things, reminded Americans today that it was President B. HUSSEIN Obama who retroactively caused the housing crash because of how he is a Gaia-worshipping lesbian Wiccan dildonic priestess who hates America, and low gas prices, and Jesus.

Obama is also a time traveler, because he went back to 2008 before he was even elected and caused the financial collapse.

Witches can do this!

Santorum, a “stealth lobbyist” for energy companies after his 18-point Senate loss to Pennsylvania Democrat Bob Casey (who, in a wacky twist, was actually dead!), clarified for voters in Michigan that it was not in fact CitiBank or Countrywide or any other tacky Wall Street grifters who looted the American economy.

Rather, he said, “The bubble burst in housing because people couldn’t pay their mortgages because of $4 a gallon gasoline.”

~~~

Non-Santorum economists reached by various outlets stroked their beards, nodded sagely, and explained in a terribly boring and wonky manner that Santorum, per usual, was gumming a mouthful of Lies!

Discussing just one possible issue with Santorum’s incisive explication of Stuff (and not, say, that people couldn’t pay their mortgages because they paid $1.2 million for a three-bedroom Costa Mesa tract house), some guy said this:

“On content, this seems like a pretty clear case of getting the direction wrong. Lehman fails in September 2008 and the economy collapses. That leads gasoline prices to plunge precipitously (check out the price series at Gas Buddy and click on the 5-year or 4-year graph) according to all analysts at the time because people understand output will be falling, not the other way around.”

“Quote of the Day”

Via: TPM

“It’s very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments. We’ve seen throughout the campaign if you’re willing to say really outrageous things that are accusative, attacking of President Obama, that you’re going to jump up in the polls.

I’m not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support.

I am who I am.”

– Willard Romney

***

He did not add,”. . . although, I will consider my big contributors lighting my hair on fire.”

~

Personally, I think the man will say, or do, anything in order to win the nomination.

And yes, if he wins the nomination, he will start to ‘flip’ once again.
