telegraph laments,

Obama has gone a long way to kill off most of that with zero interest rates, too.......my 6-7% CDs ended and now you get 1.3% on a five year CD and 0.02% on a MMF.....

I agree that's a problem for timid investors who hold mostly CDs. On the other hand, the stock market has nearly doubled under Obama's sure hand. For someone like me with an 85%-90% stock asset allocation, it's a welcome change from the Chickenhawk years of Bush and Cheney.

$hit baby, we be raking it in, I'm gettin' two Eldorados.
