See? The stock market isn’t doing that bad!
It’s all part of the plan:
That’s a little more than
4% 0.4%. In a single day. See? The Dow Jones looks way better by comparison!

A four-tenths-of-a-point fall doesn’t actually make the Dow Jones look all that good by comparison, but then, maybe that’s just the Obama Administration’s usual competence showing through. They tried to make the Dow Jones look good, but didn’t quite get there.
