    No one's arguing that the wealthy have done well during the Bush years, but according to the Washington Post, the Dow needs another 2000 points to break the record if you factor in inflation. 12,000 points ain't what it used to be. For those of us with investments, this is not the Clinton economy, which was great, but it's not a bad economy either. For those of us who work, the economy has been stagnant. Did you see the Globe article the other day that showed real wages have actually declined a little?

    And if the Dow was down? You would be all over this story like white on rice.

    HAHAHAHA! Factor in inflation? Just like the Dems (and Repubs) use the same logic when argueing deficits, trade gaps, & spending. Remember my point about fudging numbers, or manipulating them in a way to fit your point? This is one of the ways.

    Exactly, but at the same time, those arguments are valid.
