Not all republicans are stupid. There are alot of rich republicans out there making a fortune on this market. They may think it is all baloney, but they are joining the party and making a fortune on this inflated market. And by the way, I don't think obama or the government is the one doing the pumping. This is just one way wall streeters make their money. But like in 2008/2009 crash some big time long term pumps bring about big time major dumps. I wonder, like in 2009, if there is really cash behind these gains, or is it all just ink and paper.
