Probably a historical myth. However, it is mot a myth that O'bama is fiddling around while the stock marked continues its nose dive. More than 75% of Americans are invested in the stock market. O'bama apparently intends to incorporate as much of his socialist agenda while the country is in a financial meltdown; taking advantage as Rohm Emanuel states, of the crisis in the country. 1. O'bama blithely remarks that the health care problem is the cause of the financial ills of the country as he attempts to enact socialized healthcare. 2. Next there is the problem of education, which is really the purview of the states, but which the feds are always willing to screw up. 3. Then there is the energy crisis to be solved by going green, whatever that means. Meanwhile he has reneged on his promise to drill offshore for oil and natural gas and to support nuclear power. With 243 million vehicles on the road powered by petroleum products and the auto industry in deep trouble, that is beyond stupid. 4. Finally there is the carbon tax. A tax that every consumer will have to pay, not just those making over $250,000. So O'bama fiddles around while the financial markets are in turmoil. According to some financial experts he could remove most of the turmoil by executive order; abandoning the mark-to market rule that financial institutions are saddled with.
