Short post today. Saw the president last night. I generally like the guy even though I didn’t vote for him. I mean it’s nice to have someone young in the office. It’s nice to have someone who has traveled internationally and lived overseas in the office. It’s nice to have someone smart, who doesn’t weed the opposition out of his public appearances, can address doubters and can speak off the cuff on most issues.
That being said WTF was the point of the big speech last night. It was a bunch of nothing. More platitudes and more hollow slogans and empty words.
I don’t know what I’m talking about, but I’d expect the market to go down like 100 points today. That’s just my feeling based upon the fact that I think the market movers and shakers were looking for a whole lot more and got nothing from BHO other than more grand and flowery oratory.
At some point you gotta stop talking about swimming and dive in the pool and get wet.
