    Many things are timing, demographics, global economy, etc... However, fiscal irresponsibility is clearly Bush.

    I hear ya. I know I'm in it for the long haul with my 401k (I'm 26), but I still cringe when I've got my last couple 401k statements.

    Yep, the quarterly reports are the only thing I am looking at for my 401k and mutual funds. Other than that I'm going to ride out the storm.

    Re: Dow down almost 400 points

    Not to mention his fiscally responsible energy plan. I know there is a bottom 10 ranking for football, maybe we should have 1for Presidents.

    Guys in the Bottom 10

    Bush = Duke
    Jimmy Carter = Temple
    H. Hoover = Northwestern


    Top 10:

    Lincoln = LSU
    Roosevelt = Texas


    Others
    Taft = Iowa (he was our fattest president wasn't he?)
