Negative "Growth" in the Dow After Eight Years of George W. Bush

Reported by Melanie - September 29, 2008 -

Remember all that talk about tax cuts stimulating the economy and letting the market work and trickle down blah, blah, blah? None of it worked.

After Bush’s first full business day in office on January 22, 2001, the Dow closed at 10,587.59.

Nearly eight years on, the Dow closed today (September 29, 2008) at 10,365.45, 222.14 points below where it was when Bush took charge.

So far, no mention of this by Bush's "business news" guy, Neil Cavuto.
