I woke up this morning to hear that the stock markets were on another record dive into the gutter... down 300+ points on top of the hundreds of points we've lost in the last few weeks. By the time I'd poured the creamer into my coffee, a correspondent on the floor of the NYSE excitedly reported that the markets were rallying. Before I'd managed to sit down, we were only down 45 points.
Then, our President, decided to "calm our nerves".
The stock market immediately dived down 250 points.
According to ABC news, Bush has made 5 speeches on the economy this year, and each time the market has gone down right after.
He really should quite trying to "help". We've had quite enough of his help over the last 8 years and I think it's quite plain to everyone at this point that the only thing he can do to help at this point is to disappear back to his ranch in Texas.
