Are we trying to kid someone? The stock market gains are due to the mass layoffs and no hiring. Companies are sitting on record amounts of cash, giving next-to-nothing raises, and worker disatisfaction is at an all-time high (according to many polls). That is, the people who actually have a job.
And for the umpteenth time, the stock market is not the economy. People like myself, who have invested for decades, are soaring. But only half, or less than half the people in the country have investments.
Obama has little to nothing to do with this.
