I thought it was going to completely crash and go into meltdown after 9/11.

Given what's all happened in the last 10 years, with 9/11 the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq, the Mortgage crisis and the Bank meltdown's. Considering all that I'm actually surprised it's as high as it is, though given that in the last 52 weeks we've seen the Dow go from record highs to under 7,000. I believe the a lot of the numbers were just a mirage of this country's continuous over spending during the Bush Administration. (one of the reason's this country has a bank and mortgage problem.) the 13,000 early this year was before Obama said he could care less about the ebb and flow of the stock market. The Question is where does it end up? Does it completely Crash and hit relative zero? Does it even stand a chance at repairing itself and getting back above 10,000.

this economic turmoil would have happened regardless who won back in November

If you pay attention to the economy, stock market and the FRC yearly speeches, you'd have seen this coming back in 2005/early 2006. The economy has just been kept a float by consumer over spending and we were just spread too thin. Banks giving away easy money after 9/11 to entice people into buying new homes they couldn't afford and so on. I was only hoping it wasn't going to be this damn bad.

I think the Dow has lost 25% of it's value since January 2nd...The fact is that Wall Street doesn't like Obama's plan.

a friend of mine is a stock broker in Kansas, and to say at this point he doesn't like Obama would be an understatement, he was kinda ok with Obama at first but now he treats it like a cuss word.

more then that actually. if it was 25 percent then on the second of jan the dow would've been at 20,000 instead it was at 13,200 and it now sits 6,594. it's closer to the 35 percent range. Which just goes to show you how quickly the dow has fell.
