    Because they believe Trump's lies about the economy and even the MSM has not done enough to check on them.
    Candidate Trump told us not to believe Obama's economy numbers...remember?

    Mr. Enough,

    I don't want to call you a liar, but you sound like a liar.

    The market only went up 129% in the 8 years under Obama, and you're saying you are such a financial genius that you out performed the market by 230%, but underperformed the market every since President Trump came into office?

    Good try.

    Well, of course!! That's the Golden Rule, silly!

    The poor get a little, the rich get a lot, and the richest get the mostest of all!

    Sorry. The stock market more than TRIPLED on Obama's watch. March 9, 2009. MARK that date. Stock market historians will. Far into the future. And I mean FAR. That date, barely weeks into Obama's first term, was a multi-decade low in the stock markets in America (and in some other countries in the world, as well). The Dow Jones closed at 6,547 on that date. When Mr. Obama left office and handed the reins over to Donald Trump, on January 21, 2017, the Dow Jones was at more than TRIPLE that level. You can look it up, Kallie. YOU are the one lying here, not HadEnough2. The S&P 500, a better stock market index in any event, because it is a much broader index, also more than tripled from that date to the end of Obama's second term, and I'd be happy to go through those numbers with you as well.

    Your 129% number is TOTALLY MADE UP. Such falsehoods should not be allowed to go unchallenged.
    Thanks from HadEnough2 and BigBob

    Dear Ms. Kallie Knoetze

    I said my IRA went up 300% under Obama and about 20% since Trump came office. You don't know where my money was in my IRA. I was heavy in stocks until Trump took office. Unlike you I don't trust that Conman.

    A Trump Supporter calling me a liar. You can't see the forest through the trees.

    Okay, nearly tripled.

    The S&P 500 grew nearly six percent from Election Day to Obama’s last full day in office. Nonetheless, Axelrod is right – during Obama’s time in office, the stock market “nearly tripled.”

    Just the usual lies I see.

    How are OUR incomes going to improve with all the goodies going to Trump and his rich friends?
    Trump has no effect on my income, only I do. It's up because I've decided to put in a bit more effort.

    It is MORE fair to look at what the stock market did from March 9 to the end of Obama's time in office. The stock market, and indeed the global economy, was COLLAPSING, when Obama took office. That was NOT his fault! Anyone who says it was is simply out of their mind. That was the unraveling of a gigantic financial bubble that had been building for years, for most of the prior decade. As I pointed out, stock market historians will regard March 9, 2009 as the significant date in history, and NOT January 20, 2009, when Obama was inaugurated.

    So you've started working harder since Trump became President?!? Is that what you're saying? You were being lazy while Obama was in office?!?

    It doesn't make any difference who's in the oval office. If I want to make more money, I hustle a little more. I don't really need any more money for my lifestyle, but I find it entertaining to build my wealth sometimes. As an aside, this thread has inspired me to check my 401k (I rarely do, probably a bad habit). It's nearly doubled, but I think there's a glitch in the Fidelity site, because that would be pretty much an impossible growth rate. It is amusing to see, for certain!
