Democrats need to figure out the Rush-led NeoCon attack plans the soonest to best begin generating antidotes, preventions and counter attacks towards the important Nov 2010 elections..!

Becoming complacent with a winning offense without a solid defense is risky

As the dangerous CPAC Rush-bots openly cheer marching orders to attack, harm and fail the President of America; consider understanding their actual plans now being discussed and implemented..?

The wealthiest 2% were showered with $trillions$ under Bush and now control 95% of wealth like squirrels with trees packed of Acorns and are prepared for a "long freeze".

Hence, the wealthiest have pushed down hard on the Dow (accelerated since Nov elections) and now can HOLD DOWN the Dow for 18 Months and until after the NOV 2010 election by falsely blaming President Obama for the continued bad Economy they generated to enable RepubliCons selected to majority Congress and render Obama neutered...

That is why our President Obama is attempting to do everything possible right now

* In case He loses the Congress in 2 years as did Clinton!   (read more)


Will Murdoch and the deepest pockets simply "go on vacation" for 18 months and, as advertised
... Do nothing!


To add to the point, Murdoch has boasted (and admits) gains of 380% under Bush!
He was controlling the fall and not a "victim" as most others his Media told to "buy"


Some, hopefully wrong, guesses at the newest Neocon attack "strategies":

* Hold down the Dow for 18 months, falsely Blame Obama for Economy
Ads: "See, we told you Obama could not spend his way out of the recession:

* Falsely make Socialism the new Terrorism, falsely Blame Obama for policies helping America
Ads: "Socialism is more dangerous than Terror"

* Falsely make Obama into a big spender, generation thefter.
Ads: "Obama spent more in 40 days than Bush and Republicans did in 8 years"
Ads: "Bush vetoed spending bills demanding to remove the pork, Obama campaigned against pork and signed a bill with 9000 earmarks"

We know how the NeoCons lie, cheat and steal elections - especially after admitting that "winning elections is all that matters, not (better) policies" (or actually Governing)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    If the economy improves the Dow will reflect that improvement. This is about the economy and the success of the Obama recovery plan. If the plan is working, and the economy has turned positive in 18 months, the Dems will do well. If the economy has not improved Obama and the Dems are going to face a difficult midterm in 2010. The Dems have the Congress and the WH and, fair or not, will be held accountable.

      Do not overlook that the Wealthiest now hold all the Economy cards.

      Including the Media!

      Did you notice how President Obama got almost No bounce from a tremendous and inspirational State of the Union speech..!?

      Have you noted how the Dow dropped since Nov elections?

      Did you notice how all good News is minimized

        have to make the point that the dow is not the economy.  They are different things.  It is more important to most people that they have a steady income than if the dow is up or down 500 pts.

        Did you notice how President Obama got almost No bounce from a tremendous and inspirational State of the Union speech..!?

        He actually did get a bump but it was largely obscured by a continued decline on Obama's part in the south.  Consider the following (data from the dkos/r2000 poll)...

        Obama Fav by Region

        His ratings have climbed in the northeast (and to a slightly lesser extent the west and midwest)  back up to close to where they were on inauguration day. Meanwhile his ratings in the south have fallen consistently in the south after only a small bump on inauguration...

    Don't forget, it is us regular people that invest too.  As soon as stock prices go so far down and can't go anymore, bargin shoppers will be out there picking up those stocks.  My husband and I plan on going all in again in the risky stocks. I am going to bet big on Obama.

    •  i'm waiting in the wings right this second (3+ / 0-)

      myself. I'm researching which sectors and companies will do well in the new economy and i'm keeping an eye on them.

      I think the diarist is naive to believe that the wealthy will forego greed to influence a mid-term election. The truth about very wealthy people is that they like making money. NO ONE will going to be able to resist the bargain prices especially the very rich. If you can buy a share of GE for 6 bucks, shit, why wouldnt you? To influence an election? The uber-rich will always be uber rich and it really doesnt make much difference who is in office. They did well under both dems and republicans because THEYRE RICH.

      i think i'll be buying stock late this year or early next year when i think the market is going to bottom out. I;m sure i;m not alone.

      •  Keep it Real (0+ / 0-)

        Do you actually not believe that the Stocks are controlled by the wealthiest.!?

        Let me demonstrate:

        * You own 10 million shares in a stock, so do I.

        * We and Pals decide to drop the stock (to buy more cheaper), so we begin to trickle out our "sells" at lower and lower cost and in leaps down.

        * Along with controlling and generating false negative media, that will force the stock price down

        * We buy up more stock from the "suckers" and then reverse the process upwards

        The "Greed" in the wealthiest is to not have Obama expire the Bush Tax cuts for the wealthy at the end of 2010.

        With a majority 2010 Republican Congress - expiring the Bush Welfare for the Wealthy "ain't gonna happen - not gonna do it"

      •  forego is temporary (0+ / 0-)

        The wealth is not "lost", simply "on hold"

        After elections in 2010 and a guarantee to not have the Bush Tax cuts reversed

        ...They will finally flood the stocks way up (before selling off more massive profits at lesser tax rates)

        interesting that not just a few of those wealthiest few, especially the shakers and the movers, just got walloped, financially.  Yes, we're hurting in the working class, but their greed once again has killed (or at least seriously maimed) the golden goose.  The DOW is down because an awful lot of people just lost a great deal of money.

        I think the fiscal conservatives who had the real money underlying the RNC have personal worries of their own, lately, and they haven't had the time or where-with-all to be minding the Republican PR Con Store.  So, the nutzoid Rush-bots are running amok, and their paid for politicians are still just spouting their same old talking points as they turn around in confusion -- waiting for new marching orders -- that aren't being sent.

        Frankly, I'm not sure at all that those who have managed to keep something back are all so sold on unregulated markets that can destroy a family fortune in no time flat.  Pity, that.

      Yes, we are only "passengers on the bus" looking out the window, observing and hoping our plans on guessing the final direction and destiny were correct.

      Buy plenty of stock now at record lows.

      In 2 years, either Republicans will control Congress and the flood gates will fly open and upwards

      Or Democrats will have survived the battle and now capitalism and greed will overcome the gates and flood the stocks up

  •  Its a little to early... (0+ / 0-)

    to think its all a plot. The "Media" wants a story and they over dramatize everything. They will continue to do so, while the Obama administration makes slow steady progress. Have a little faith, and try not to be so paranoid.

    one point in share value =a 5 point movement on the DOW..They can short every rally and try to hold it down.
    It's harder to do for the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 [far better measures]. When the economy revives, the broader markets will reflect the change, even if the Dow doesn't [happened in the 90's]

    Otherwise, yes there are definitely ways they can begin to rebound as soon as '10.

    Remember last time they convinced FDR to become fiscally responsible, and plunge the economy safely back into Depression around 37.

    Some of the polling trends I've seen here indicate they may well be on track and in plenty of time to pull America back from this liberal precipice.

  •  Naked shorts are excellent for manipulating (4+ / 0-)

    a whole range of stocks.

    Naked short selling is an illegal activity that enables people to force stock prices down.  Right now there is no measure of it. The only proxy measure is trades that are never completed.  There are 6 Billion dollars a day in uncompleted transactions.  Even if naked short sales account for 50% of that, you are looking at 3 Billion a day in stolen money.

    but just as cartels have trouble holding it together, the greedy guys in this group will not be disciplined enough to stay out of the market when they perceive that being among the first back in will make them lots of $$$$. In addition, let's not forget that we also have a President who a great teacher among other things. He and his talented team will point out the reality of the situation in terms that rational people of average intelligence can understand.

      their relative corner on the market for money cannot be maintained, especially if the fear subsides. People will come back decreasing their relative impact and ability to control.
