Obama causes European stock crash

    Mighty Momposted 5 years ago

    Not content with the havoc he has caused on the US economy -- as evidenced by rampant unemployment and last week's Wall Street plunge -- Barrack Hussein Obama is now exacting his evil socialist vengeance across Europe.
    Look out Asia. He's coming for you next!
    He will not rest until capitalism is DESTROYED!!!!

    Go ahead you liberal commie hubbers. Prove me wrong! lol


    European stocks tumbled Monday, with the Stoxx Europe 600 Index posting its biggest two-day drop since March 2009 on investor speculation that support for bailing out Europe’s indebted nations may fade.

    The Stoxx Europe 600 Index lost 4 percent to 223.86 at the 4:30 p.m. close in London, following Friday's 2.4 percent plunge off of a worse-than-forecast U.S. jobs report. The U.K.’s FTSE 100 Index dropped 3.6 percent and France’s CAC 40 Index lost 4.7 percent.

        Absolutely!

        Natural disasters. Financial disasters. Kow-towing to despots.
        Obama is intent on destroying America and the world.
        Anyone with half a brain can see that! lol lol

          Obama ate my dog, and annoyed our parrot, and I am in Australia! His influence is worldwide.
          His turban is full of hash oil and he is a member of the Taliban who is married to one of Osama Bin laden's daughters!

          I say he should be boiled in oil just for starters. He caused WW2 from what I hear as well, and Hitler is his father's cousin.

      Our  douchebag Financial sector blew up the world economy not Obama. There are no jobs because rank and file Americans have no money to spend therefore there is no demand for products so why would anyone hire anybody. Inflation due to QE 1+2 and increased  commodities speculation caused inflation that would take what anyone had left for disposable income.Why do average Americans have to suffer to make the market happy? Trickle down is BS because I know my employers  would stick the money in their pocket long before hire anyone. Any stimulus should have been infrastructure projects to put money back in the hands of people that would actually spend on items,make our economy thrive and rebuild our crumbling country. Why are we hanging our future on the markets anyway ?
      It's a legalized gambling ring now with people hoping to make money by not working,screw them,They are way off from the original idea of investing. I know i,m screwed out of my pension already anyway.. Buy an American made product or service and give someone a job. When we get the chance we should do some firing of our own, our incumbent reps that have been in office forever for letting this happen

        On the surface it would appear that way, MDS.
        But ultimately, it's ALL Obama's fault.
        He controls the financial sector and the markets (and the weather!).
        He could stop this decline if he wanted to. But he chooses not to.
        Why? To prove that capitalism doesn't work!!!

        BTW, I admire your "Buy American" patriotism.
        I always try to buy fruit from the Mexican guys who sit on the corner. I'm not sure if they are in this country legally, as I don't speak Spanish and can't ask them (not that they'd tell me).

    The Europeans are making the same mistake as we are here in the U.S.--focusing on debt and balancing the budget when stimulus and low interest rates are needed to pull the economies out of recession. The time to balance the budget will be when unemployment is down to a more reasonable level.

      recommend1posted 5 years ago in reply to this

      That would have been the case when there was excess money in the system - however, virtually all the western economies are deeply in debt and 'support' for any sector is just exchanging debt (or moving it around).  This can have little long term effect.

      The Chinese 'pot' of excess money is being drawn back to finance their own trading interests and the countries that are within them.  They appear to be putting any investment or debt buying where it is relatively safe financially rather than with political motives, they sold a huge amount of US debt a few months before the latest crash and the first big dent in the US credit rating.

    Mighty Mom, I love ya but I trace the beginning of this back to Bush and his cronies who covered up climate change for years. We are now in runaway and abrupt climate change which will continue to wreak havoc - there can be only so many natural disasters before it bankrupts countries, one by one. I personally think Obama was the fall guy. This collapse was inevitable long before he came into office. Every day there are million and billion dollar disasters happening world wide...it's just a matter of time. We cannot keep recovering from this type of damage.
    About 6 years ago I found out about how deep these guys all played down climate change....and kept drilling for oil. Now look at Katrina, the BP oil fiasco, the Japanese tsunami...yes they can all be traced back to earth changes..... some natural but most of it brought one by our quest for oil...and money....

      But on this one you are dead wrong because you are listening to FACTS.
      That is your fatal error...

      Here's how it is:
      Every bad thing that has occurred anywhere in the US or the world since January 2009 is directly attributable to Barack Obama.
      HE alone caused global warming!!!
      He really, really is that powerful!

    Dorsi, REALLY!?!  Tsunamis are caused primarily by seismic activity and not by ANYTHING weather related.  The BP oil spill would have been avoided had the oil companies had easier access to land based and shallow water drilling where containment is much easier to control.  To your point about MAN-MADE global warming...what caused the earth to go through warming and cooling cycles in the past...in a past where there were neither SUVs nor oil executives?  Stop fear tactics that are completely groundless and neglect the actual facts...

      The debate over climate change rages on....the politicians did a great job at putting out so much dis info for so many years... Why do we now have:  Record earthquakes? Record droughts? Record floods? Record Hurricanes? Record fires? Record volcano's erupting? Record tornadoes? Record tsunamis? The only way I can ever prove my point is if people read everyday about the record breaking disasters we have....we simply cannot keep digging out from all these disasters. Climate change will be our economic doom.

    Well, I'm extremely skeptical that a US POTUS has much of anything to do with anything.

    Since the Rothschild eurofilth family of bankers had JFK murdered for bucking the fed and printing off billions of debt free dollars based on US silver bullion reserves. . . .ever single US POTUS has been nothing more than a David Rockefeller and Evelyn De Rothschild bitch boy.

      Do you know about the "little ice age" that wreaked havoc on Europe for 3 or 4 hundred years beginning in about the 1200s? The Catholic church eventually blamed this (now explainable) onset of brutally cold weather, lack of sun, and crop failure on witches.

      So now, we get to blame this economic problem on Obama, when it was on track to happen long, long before Obama came into office.
