Why does the market keep tanking?

I thought we were at the bottom at the end of the election. And yet the market keeps dropping. Will the DOW go below 7000? Did Obama make another press appearance again? It seemed like every time the president say something, the market tanks. Did they say anything different this time? Market lost faith on the government.

Obama is promising to raise taxes for the rich and corporations. How are the rich and corporations supposed to respond? Obama has become a complete moron. He needs to scrap that Harvard degree. He has no clue what he's doing. Blame is the only game he has left.

I'm beginning to think that Obama is kryptonite to the markets. If he stays away and doesn't open his mouth, the market catches its breath. As soon as he mutters anything regarding the economy, it's like Lex Luthor putting that kryptonite necklace around Superman's neck.

The market keeps tanking because it has become evident after one month that Obama will seriously persue his socialist ideas.

Well it tanked today because the Obama administration is taking steps toward Nationalizing our banks, which is a HUGE step towards socialism.

The truth being, no one in the biz has any confidence in socialism. socialism fails every time it's been tried. Unless you like driving 1964 Chevy's
