    Yeah, all the uncertainty is ONLY because of worries about President Obama being re-elected. That's the only reason, right? There's no uncertainty because of the sequestration forced on us by the Republican controlled House of Representatives, right?

    Perhaps you need to watch more than just FOX and Friends before commenting.

    re:CHS 85

    Not talking about the DOW over the past 4 years - am talking about the DOW over the last 4 days. If you listen to the financial shows on CNN or FOX you hear alot of panic and fear from investors RIGHT NOW and that FEAR is being attributed to Obama getting a second term and the uncertainty that puts into the market. Companies are announcing poor earnings for this last qtr and are also lowering their projections for the next qtr. Companies are also announcing cutting of their expenses (more layoffs). Obama has radical spending and tax plans for 2013 and that is what is driving the uncertainty. I can only tell you to spend some time on either CNN or FOX and listen to the financial reports. If you don't want to bother doing this then there is no point in commenting.

    Dow is down BIG TIME? Really? A 2% dip is BIG TIME?

    Under the past two Republican presidents, the DOW went down 22% (1987) and 18% (2008) respectively.

    BTW, the Dow us up, way, way up since President Obama took office. Don't believe me? Check your 401K statements. Mine went up 20.89% last year. That is long term security for my family.

    Thanks for being so honest and maybe, just maybe I can help. I know we don't have perfect candidates. I don't agree with every position of Romney's but here is how I see it:

    My research has proven to me that Romney will turn around our economy so if you vote for him to uphold economic freedom, then down the road we will have a nation that is stable enough so that folks like you can still find and support candidates more ideal for your tastes.

    In Britain and Spain, it was the second term when their leaders pulled all the stops and killed off their economic freedoms to the point where they now can't dig out of their mess. Remember Obama's hot mic moment with the Russian leader where he told him he would have a lot more flexibility in his second term. Ironhide, help us send Romney to Washington with the majority of the country behind him.

    I don't know what to think about the citizens of our country. They seem to be so easily swayed by ludicrous "zingers" like horses and bayonets(they are standard issue for marines and are still used in combat), and don't gather facts on their own, but look to biased news sources for information. I don't know who to vote for. I don't have a lot of confidence in Obama's record. He spends all of his time taking shots at Romney rather than proving he deserves four more years. What a joke. It makes me not want to believe anything he says, and he says not to believe anything Romney says. Is Ron Paul still in the race?

    This is not a complicated decision," Clinton said there. "If somebody saved my economy, I'd be for him."

    What an idiotic statement. I guess this means Bill is voting for Mitt then? If we are talking about 'saving an economy' the DOW is down BIG time right now and the word is it is all because of FEAR.... FEAR of Obama getting another term. Companies are announcing cut backs and more layoffs and stocks bit the dust. FEAR and UNCERTAINTY is something Mitt will fix on DAY 1!
