When You Got Nuttin’ 1

You dodge, weave, lie, and attack.

It’s a Republican thing. They got nuttin’.

. . . with less than a month to go and McCain losing ground in opinion polls nationally and in some of the critical battleground states in particular, the Republican has gone negative. During the week of Sept 28 through Oct. 4, “nearly 100 percent of the McCain campaign’s advertisements were negative,” the Wisconsin Advertising Project at the University of Wisconsin reports today. “During the same period, 34 percent of the Obama campaign’s ads were negative.”

And they are leaving the rest of us with the same:

One year to the day after climbing to its peak of 14,164.53, the Dow Jones Industrial Average sank 678.91 points, its third-largest point loss on record, to finish at 8,579.19, pushing the blue-chip index under the 9,000 level for the first time since August 2003.

The Dow’s close leaves it 5,585.34 points, or 39.4%, under its year-ago high.

    It’s interesting how the Left has alternatively, over the years, portrayed the stock market as having both relevance and non-relevance to the middle class, depending on how it suits the particular issue of propaganda they’re pursuing at the moment. When the market booms, they say that only the rich are benefiting, when it drops, they say the average person is the one getting hurt. The best time to buy stocks is when they are low, (duh!) but the Left is more concerned about getting Obama elected than about giving sound financial advice to working people.
