From CNBC: “The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 634.76 points, or 5.55 percent, to finish at 10,809.85, well-below the psychologically-significant 11,000 mark. The move marks the blue-chip index’s biggest point and percent drop since Dec. 1, 2008. ”
This drop comes after last week’s 526 point drop, and after the U.S. credit rating was downgraded over the weekend by S&P from AAA to AA+.
What will it take before so-called moderate voters figure it out? How much damage has to be done to this country before well-meaning voters finally say enough is enough?
When will people give up the illusions — the Styrofoam columns, the first Black man, the empty rhetoric, the overinflated crowds, the well choreographed campaign. The man is not who you thought he was. At some point you’ll have to stop waiting for him to come around, stop giving him second chances, and just admit he’s a failure of epic proportions. Maybe you didn’t like the President who came before him, but you must at some point admit that Obama has not been the improvement you thought he’d be.
Is Obama over yet?
