What are the possible outcomes and the effect on stock prices.

1. Boehner caves-in and we have drastically higher taxes (resulting in lower stock prices).

2. Boehner refuses to make a deal with Obama and the sequestration kicks in causing the fiscal cliff (resulting in lower stock prices).

3. Obama caves-in and approves lower the tax rates....not going to happen...

Obama is intentionally wrecking our economy.

So he can be a national hero when he re-builds it, the socialist way.
You're witnessing a dictator in the making.

The silence of the news media about the stock market decline is deafening.

The market took a huge dump the day after he was reelected. Who'da thunk?

People are dumping stocks because capital gains taxes and taxes on dividends are going up next year. Take your gains now and avoid taxes - it's what every smart investor does.

The redistributionists think they can tax the "wealthy" more and expect no change in behavior. As long as class welfare rages on and there is more taxation of wealth and profits, the wealthy will take more of their money off the table. Then, business will die.

Liberals just don't get this.

if one hasn't done so, better do it now before they make it illegal to do so.

Yes. Poor, poor Wall Street. So poor that on 11/2008 the Dow closed @ 8695 pts. On 11/2012 the Dow closed @13,112 pts. Four years of record breaking profits must be very, very costly.

Or maybe it's not the market. Maybe it's the silly investors who just don't know that - historically speaking - the stock market does considerablly better under democratic presidencies.

Where did you come up with that number for 11/2008?

"Obama is wrecking our economy"

I believe it was already wrecked when he found it.

Thank you for fact checking me. That shows you're paying attention.

On 11/06/08 the DJIA closed @ 8695.75
On 11/16/12 the DJIA closed @ 12538.81

Four years of record breaking profits and unprecedented one day daily gains. Pardon me if I don't cry for Wall St.

It didn't matter Obama or Romney, neither one was willing to do anything about the serious spending reform we'd need to fix our issues. We're being driven into bankruptcy along with the rest of the world and at some point they'll try to form a global currency. The dollar will collapse and even if we had backed currency again, they'd probably just use it as another excuse to take private PM's. Unless we allow our people to use actual gold and silver if they choose without penalty like we're supposed to, we'll always be subject to theft through inflation/debasing of currency.

Mittens and Ryan aren't as sad as Obama and Biden but that didn't make them an option either. Steaming pile A VS. Steaming pile B. If Republicans are stupid enough to put up clowns like Romney, Gingrich and Santorum then they deserve to lose. Paul was the only one who had a damn clue but the GOP made sure that even with 10 million fewer Obama votes they have to push social BS and war. What is worse, they couldn't get gains of the other (mostly) 535 crooks either because when they did in 2010 to "control spending" they did the typical GOP thing and played the game.
