Why don't you and your drooling, paranoid bumpkins stay over at FatOlsonLand where you belong...

The DOW crashing is Bush's fault, right?

Well things did seem fine until he started talking about the economy going to hell. But you are probably right. Just a coincidence.

The DJIA down 215 points isn't a "crash", that's more like a bad hair day. Proportionately speaking, you'd need about 20% to 25% down in a couple of weeks to really qualify as a "crash". From last week's DJIA levels, that would mean another 1500 points to go from here. Not impossible, but not likely.
We seem to be in more of a grinding bear market than a true stock market "crash" scenario. The NASDAQ isn't crashing, either. It already did that last year.

"The DOW crashing is Bush's fault, right?"
I didn't say that, but since YOU brought it up, yes, he is indirectly responsible. When he became pretzeldent he gave all of his criminal friends his approval to go ahead and commit as much corporate fraud and corruption as they wanted. Some of these scumbags are getting caught, so the people are starting to wake up and take their money out of stocks.
