U.S. election: Your global views
Obama... A Better C.E.O.
Where was the Dow-Jones Industrial average stock price at the time Obama was elected -- about $6,500. Where is the Dow-Jones average today, 3 1/2 years later? $13,500 -- nearly its highest level EVER! Over double what it was -- that means the average, and the corporations it includes, has doubled in value based upon the economic policies implemented by Obama that permitted such a doubling of value for each investor who held the stock over that period and doubling the value of each of the publicly traded Dow Jones companies.
Accordingly, Obama has doubled the value for investors and for corporations on a vast scale for the past three years. Nothing Romney claims to have done for the companies he bought, managed and sold as a Bain investor comes even close to the success Obama has had as a money-making corporate honcho.
Obama is the better chief executive of all the publicly traded companies than Romney ever was or ever could be. The stock marketnumbers prove it -- Obama has doubled all of their money, and that is an incredible accomplishment, especially considering the free fall of the market and the economy he was burdened with by Bush and his bumbling, retarded Republicans.
