Stock market has tumbled since
Obama reelection. Are investors angry?

Christian Science Monitor, by Ron Scherer

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/9/2012 8:16:44 PM

New York - Investors thought the election might answer some political questions. If that’s the case, Wall Street traders did not seem to like the answers. Tuesday's election reaffirmed all the elements that led to gridlock during the past two years – reelecting President Obama and leaving the balance of power in Congress unchanged. In response, Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index has fallen 3.4 percent. Stock markets tried to rally Friday, but the effort had little energy with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing up about 4 points for the day and down 3.2 percent since the election.

Why risk your money investing when you will be punished with heavy tax increases for making a wise choice?

Investors are angry, but more than that they are scared of this administration. 0bama is printing 85 Billion Dollars each and every month, a Trillion Dollars a year. Money that is in the market is being decimated by their reckless spending and printing of dollars. The money the investor will get out of the market when they sell is worth so much less than the dollars they invested. There is a moronic arrogance and ignorance about this administration; the market is acting accordingly. Like Oliver Stone has just informed all of us, 0bama is a pretty scary dude. Actually, many of us are terrified, Ollie.

Hey, not to worry, Harry Reid said that he wants to raise the debt ceiling 2.4 trillion. Then we can borrow more money from China and that money can then be put into the stock market.

Not angry, maybe scared, but usually rational.

Capital is flowing from us to Asia. It comes back when the market thinks its profitable. When not, it goes to where the growth is.

Let's face it real growth in the economy here is not rationally expected now that the "people" have spoken.

The "anger" thing is completely misplaced. #5 nails it.

The value of US money and US assets is reasonably projected to decrease given the current political reality.

When he was nominated, Obama made about $1T in equity evaporate. Could that be happening again?

Scared.

Of Obama, of Bernanke, Europe, China, ... the thing is, US business does not feel in charge of their own fate, and so are paralyzed.

Also objectively, if the economy looks weak and no change in sight, and the fiscal cliff a looming disaster, then I sure *hope* a rational investor is scared!

I'm a foreign investor and I pulled all my funds from the US market because while a president can't really make economy prosper, he can stifle it by hamstringing it with excessive regulations & kill free enterprise with corrupt nepotism. Barack Mugabe has to go before a cent of my money goes back to the US.

I sympathize with those who have been laid off since the election. It will only get worse.

No offense to the investors but my husband works three jobs and I worked for 27 years. We live in the Northeast, get taxed as millionaires ( over 250,000 barely). In the meantime, those my husband works with are collecting all kinds of government benefits. We´ve had enough.

Maybe someday soon, those collecting the benefits will realize there is not enough money to go around.

They are scared, and are redirecting their funds.

I believe that some of the recent improvements in the market and the economy were because people thought Romney was going to win the election, and Obama´s dreadful policies would be ended. Now that it´s obvious Obama stays, and is not even hindered by the need to be win votes, I believe things will get worse, fast.

Wall Street has been playing games with the funds that Bernacke has been plowing into the market and devaluing our money. I guess that they thought it would never end. The fake rise in the market has concealed how bad our economy has become. Now the results are showing up in the big business layoffs and the playboys in the market are facing reality (after their actions brought 4 more years of destruction with nowhere to go but deeper into the recession that a rational market would have shown never ended).

Poll: Obamacare Support Hits New Low

Support for the health care reform law is at its lowest point since it was enacted four years ago, according to a new poll. The Associated Press survey found that only 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. Forty-three percent said they are opposed to the law. The poll was conducted online, and online polls are typically not as accurate as telephone polls. But the results nevertheless point to political peril for Democratic congressional candidates in the midterm elections, with Republicans again running against the law across the country. The results also

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin on Friday said Russia´s takeover of Crimea showed off its military prowess, as his defence minister reported that the Russian flag was now flying over all military sites on the Black Sea peninsula. In a Kremlin ceremony with senior security officials, Sergei Shoigu told Putin that all Ukrainian servicemen still loyal to Kiev have left the Crimea region, whose annexation by Moscow has led to the worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War. "The recent events in Crimea were a serious test," Putin was shown on state television as saying in an echoing

And many of the participants are carrying flowers to lay at the Freedom Monument, Latvia´s symbol of national independence. They have come here to commemorate those who died defending Latvia against the Soviet Union in the war.

Washington - The United States and Europe must stand firm in rejecting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea not just because they challenge the principles a peaceful and prosperous Europe is built on, President Obama said Wednesday in Brussels, but also because they thwart "universal values" of freedom and self-determination that stir all humanity. The president’s speech – the format Mr. Obama has favored for delivering big messages in foreign places – came at the end of a day during which the American leader visited for the first time two pillars of trans-Atlantic relations: NATO headquarters and

BRUSSELS — President Obama said Wednesday that Europe and the United States now face “a moment of testing” that challenges their unity and the international order they have worked for generations to build. In a speech Wednesday evening at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in this Belgian capital, Obama suggested that the current standoff with Russia over its incursion into Ukraine is part of a more fundamental struggle between democratic ideals and “an older, more traditional view of power.” He warned against “complacency” in the face of what he called Russia’s violations of international law in taking over Crimea. “If we

WASHINGTON — While President Obama insisted again on Tuesday that the West would not recognize the annexation of Crimea, officials in the United States and Europe have privately concluded that Crimea is lost and that the real challenge is stopping Russia from further destabilizing Ukraine. After meeting with allies in Europe and suspending Russia from the Group of 8, Mr. Obama indicated no plans for additional sanctions unless Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, makes another provocative move. Every reference to further action against Russia during a 40-minute news conference in The Hague came with conditional phrases like “if the situation

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

At least 59 people have died in Guinea following the outbreak of deadly flesh-eating virus Ebola. The first cases of the haemorrhagic fever were spotted late last month.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in
