No politics or partisanship here, “just the facts ma’am”.  The stock market as measured by the S&P500 is up just about 50 percent since President Obama’s inauguration to today’s close.   Only Eisenhowser comes close, but not even in the same zip code.   A 50 percent stock move does a lot “spreading the wealth around” and Joe the Plumber’s pension is in much better shape today than it was in November 2008!

Sure, sure, there are a  ton of reasons to explain the differences, but this is politics folks!    A CapEX spending led economic acceleration and pick-up in hiring in 2011, which usually follows such a strong equity performance,  will make the President look unbeatable same time next year, in our opinion.  Stay tuned.
