Rats Flee Sinking Obama Ship
While President Obama stood on the steps of the White House lauding the Harry Reid and the Senate for advancing his heavy handed Wall Street regulations, a rat (lower right hand corner of the photo) decided it was time to jump ship.
It is a common theory that rats will leave a ship when they sense it is sinking.
In reaction to the bill, Wall Street also “jumped ship”. Dow Jones Industrial traders drove the index down 376.36 (3.6%) in reaction to news about the advancement of the government regulations.
As usual, the American investor pays the price. The DOW is down 9.5% over the past month as the bill weaved its way towards passage.
The rumors that the rat was running out to buy gold have yet to be confirmed.
