PUMA Politics: A Once In A Century Event
According to Alan Greenspan, what we are seeing in the markets is a “Once In A Century Event”. We have also seen another once in a century event; the rise of an incredible populist intelligent leader that was shoved aside for a lesser qualified, ego-driven, rock star candidate that would further the agendas of the power people behind the scenes. Unfortunately for us, the perfect storm that has been on the horizon for two years now has reached critical mass. The markets are collapsing and there is not a leader on the horizon that can command the confidence of the American People or the Financial Districts to help stop the hurricane that is now battering the American Economy. The financial markets are all about investor confidence. Given the choice between Barack Obama and John McCain, is it any wonder that the rollercoaster is in full tilt? We had the chance to put someone in command; 18 million people tried…the DNC shut it down.
Numerous PUMAs knew that of the three candidates at the time of the primary race, Senator Clinton was the only one who had a complete and utter command of the subject of the economy. Barack Obama and John McCain were just hoping this would all blow over before it became the nightmare that it is now.
Senator Clinton spoke about the coming financial maestrom back in December of 2007. If you want me to dig up the video, I will. Now, all we have is her quiet leadership from the Senate. May the DNC, the Obama Campaign, and Barack and Mishy be tossing and turning at night; just like the rest of us have been doing for the last two years….
