The boo-birds in the right wing blogosphere must be kicking themselves right now. They hate it when America succeeds while Democrats are in control. They hope that Obama will fail, and that America will slide into a depression that lasts until the 2010 election.
Hopefully they've taken their own advice and are not participating in the market rally over the last week. There are excellent signs today of strong buying and market players are not selling into the rally, indicating further strength.
Obama told them the market was fundamentally sound and they mocked him. I hope they lose their shirts. Having a vocal minority cheerleading the demise of our nation doesn't help this country one bit.
A good swift financial kick in the ass is fitting and appropriate for Limbaugh and his wannabees, but then you also have recognize that these clowns are major hypocrites - and it's possible they've been singing the blues while secretly hoping for the best and investing their money despite they vocal opposition to success.
Is it wrong to hope the right wing loses? I guess I'm safe if I say instead that I hope conservatism fails. That's the excuse they used to talk down this nation and its prospects for recovery.
Update: I've heard it mentioned today that some mutual fund managers are looking at ways to create funds which will allow ordinary investors an opportunity to participate in the purchase of these so-called "toxic assets" and benefit from the expected upside.
