So this is what Socialism looks like.

So how did it do under eight years of a Real Conservative Capitalist Businessman, George W. Bush?

Well, it stunk.

S&P 500 : -40%

NASDAQ : -48%

DOW : -25%

So I’m in no hurry to see another “Real Conservative” back in power. My IRA can’t take another hit like it did in the Bush years.

Such a Marxist.

How it is that the Republicans are the big spenders in DC, but have this reputation for fiscal discipline?

They are also supposed to be good for business, but the economy does better under Ds than Rs (i.e., the datapoint of this page is consistent with past performance).

The wonders of propaganda in action, I suppose.

Bingo.

Performance is even more impressive if you look at the charts for his first few months. The Bush freefall carried the Dow to an impact crater at around the end of Feb 2009.
