In Sept of 2007 the the DJ hit a then record 14,000 points. Then as the housing market crashed so did the market.

I had a 401 at a previous employer. I had not rolled it over to my new employer because they wouldn't allow me to roll it all into one account. At some point in early 2008 my old employer changed providers for their retirement accounts and my account was cashed out. As the market was still falling I just left the money in the holding account. By Feb of 2009 the market had bottomed out at just over 6700 points. Less than half it's value in Sept of 2007.

That's when I rolled my cash back into a new IRA. By the time Obama walked out of the White House in January, that account, with NO additional money added by myself, just stock value and dividends, was worth THREE TIMES what I bought in with.

I can't complain about the Obama economy !!
Thanks from Hollywood and Clara007

Because it's not necessarily untrue, it's just not really an argument.

From 2010 to 2017 GDP numbers; 2.5, 1.6, 2.2, 1.7,2.6, 2.9,1.5 and now, 3.2%. So...for the past 8 years, this year is the first GDP has reached 3% and, from the percentages, doubled in the first 8 months of this administration.

As for making profits in the Stock market...much depends on "when" an investment is made. Is the market at a low or a high?

Yes. Thank god Obama was able to overcome the absolute disaster that Bush Jr. left him and built a solid economic basis for such strong and sustained growth that even The Dotard hasn't been able to fuck it up - yet.

Stock market hits high.... God Bless Donald Trump.

Remember when the stock market was hitting highs under Obama, and all the right side could do was point out that the numbers were meaningless. All the stock market gains were due to quantitative easing, they said.

Damn they can change their tune quickly.
Thanks from Camelot and Hollywood

Oh, I see. Suddenly the DJIA and the unemployment figures are irrelevant.

You are trying very hard to ignore the ...fact; Jan 2016, GDP a miserable 1.5%
There was not one year, between 2010 to Jan 2017, GDP reached a 3% growth. Just the ..fact..this administration is looking to change the tax codes and reduce taxes for all brackets has brought the highest GDP in those 7 year, as well as having a 4.2 unemployment and the highest ever Stock Market.
