Not so stimulating

To great fanfare, the Big O signed the Oh So Stimulating Package into law. On Wall Street, capitalists of all persuasions failed to be enthused.

You have to wonder just what the Wall Streeters know that the Big O doesn't. Could it be that they have figured out that the Democrats in Congress have set him up as a patsy when their looting of the public purse comes home to roost? Could it be that they believe that the man is the most famous ever example of the Peter Principle?

Or could it be that they have figured out that most of Washington is whizzing into the wind, and they don't want to get any on themselves?
