As 2009 opened, three weeks before Barack Obama took office, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 9034 on January 2, its highest level since the autumn panic. Yesterday the Dow fell another 4.24% to 6763, for an overall decline of 25% in two months and to its lowest level since 1997. The dismaying message here is that President Obama's policies have become part of the economy's problem.
As was widely predicted before the election, the Presidential Amateur Hour isn't so entertaining as the Hope and Change crowd thought it would be.
Unless, of course, you like to watch the nation implode. A lot of people are started to ask themselves if that wasn't the plan after all. (Queue the black helicopters.) But remember, never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by stupidity.
However, I'm keeping my eyes open, just in case.
