Last night at the DNC all I heard is about how much they cared about me. They understood me. They loved me. This confuses me a little. For the last 3 1/2 years all I have heard from the DNC is how I am racist, terrorist, SOB, and host of other derogatory terms and accusations. So which is it? do they care for me or do they hate me? I am confused.

Source: Bespoke Investment Group - Think BIG - One Chart Republicans Do Not Want You ToSee


Quoting 
Barack Obama is getting to set to make his case at the Democratic National Convention for why Americans should give him a second term in office. One chart that you are unlikely to, but should, see is a comparison of his first 1,325 days in office to other Presidents since 1900. As shown in the chart below, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has risen 66.8% since Obama took office, making it the fifth best stock market return during a President's first 1,325 days in office since 1900. The only four other Presidents who saw better returns in their first 1,325 days were FDR, Coolidge, Eisenhower, and Clinton.

While the stock market returns during his time in office are impressive enough, an even more interesting statistic is how the equity market has performed during the first 1,325 days in office for Democrats versus Republicans. Of the eleven Republicans since 1900, the DJIA has averaged a gain of 20.4% during their first 1,325 days in office. That may sound good, but for the eight Democratic Presidents since 1900, the DJIA has seen an average return of 54.9%, or more than two and a half times the average return of Republicans. While President Obama may have a hard time running for re-election based on the performance of the economy, he could certainly run on the performance of the market!

As I said before, and is perfectly evident over the past 2 days...the market and indices are a POOR metric for the health of our economy or the collective prosperity of Americans. A BETTER metric is REAL GDP (indexed for inflation) (even though I think the inflation rates are suspect).

US Real GDP by Month

As I've said, the economy was already on the upswing when Clinton took office and was already stalling/fading when he left.

I'm 60 and have been voting for a while but this year, I will not be casting my vote for the lesser of the two major evils and instead am going to cast my 'protest' vote for Gary Johnson (yes, effectively a vote for Obama, who I did vote for last time). Not that it matters, since I live in California.

Gary Johnson 2012

His platform and party might be unrealistic in dealing with the realities of the problems we face but at least he has some pretty rational ideas and he isn't part of the currently broken system. I'm a middle-of-the-roader who cannot fathom the divisiveness in this country in the face of such large "common enemy" problems that we should be able to compromise on and begin to solve. Hard line blanket defenses of either the Democrats or Republicans perplex me.

Not sure what I'm going to do with my Senate/House vote.

This is from 2009 but presents a very different picture. It should be noted that congress makes the laws not the president.

This is what is of key importance. All the emphasis on President is really overstated.
