Wild ride. Vix over 50 at times. Dow 100 day moving average is 24072, so watch that number. Break below it and heavens knows, where the market goes.

I'm not a prog .......

The link below to a wapo article discusses this exact question. So, I'm posting it so that the ridiculous bull-shit that tends to flow around everywhere about who is responsible for the economy, Obama or Trump, can be but obviously won't be put to bed by the facts:

The fact of the matter is that the sitting President has little to do with what experts in the field of economics call the US Economy. What they do have an impact on is American's perception of it. Another influence on the economy is the Congress, what legislation they pass and what both sides say about that among other things involving messaging. Here's the concluding paragraph from the wapo link. The article is full of pertinent facts about the question Kapture is asking. Read this before you answer it.

"If this were a rational world, we would have presidential commissions and congressional hearings and a profound public debate over the AI economy” says Brusuelas of RSM. “Instead, we just get tit-for-tat over who deserves credit for the latest economic data.”

Tax reform is a big change. I don't see any clear analysis on what's going on here to understand how much influence it has. Bears and bulls are clearly duking it out now. Very interesting day.

Again, the issue is with exceptionalizing Steele as a foreign spy. Especially when you grant the existence/use of entities like Fusion GPS. It is part and parcel, it's like you are saying Fusion GPS should exist and only enlist/contract white American males. I don't think I have to get into hypotheticals about how laughably useless that'd be.

The language allows you to slip in the loose idea of: hey both sides are enlisting foreign aid for something, how can the left be so indignant -- but really it is a gross misrepresentation of all things alleged.

Also,

I've preceded each mention of investigation with alleged. So that at least signals that I am speaking in less than certainties.

The best nonpartisan argument has already been discussed ad nauseam in the lions forum and briefly, I think, in this thread: at the end of the day, the truth is worth knowing, thus investigating.

Refuting that with any realistic sense is hard to do.

So far, that we know of with certainty, the only side that enlisted foreign aid for something IS the left. They have been looking for over a year for the Right doing it, but have found nothing yet.
