Barack Obama Believes In ‘Mid-Growth’ Stocks

by Sara K. Smith

This dingus running for president thinks there is such a thing as a “mid-growth” stock, and that you should diversify your risk when you invest. But as one brave YouTube genius points out … Shit, what is this person talking about? The point is, this COMMUNITY ORGANIZER shouldn’t be trusted with managing the money of hard-working white Americans and that’s what a president is: an investment manager. [YouTube]

Yeah, I guess I would rather vote for the guy who has 13 cars, ?? homes, a 100millionaire-hess for a wife, wants a blue ribbon commission after the credit markets blow, employed the very lobbyists who created this mess and never did a thing beyond the public teat because Obama believes in mid-growth stock.

I wonder how long Obiwan-something, or Jedi-something (conservatards love starwars) took to find this footage of nothing? As we speak right now, Dumb and Dumber are stumping saying stupider shit.

HuskyMescan September 22, 2008 at 9:13 am

Or vote for a guy who’s essentially responsible for the melt down of our financial system:
NYT: Loan Titans Paid McCain Adviser Nearly $2 Million
Rick Davis should resign and pay us back.

I hate to tell ya, guys and gals, there are such things as mid-growth stocks. Who made this video? I’m sure they are doing great on the stock market.

Serolf Divad September 22, 2008 at 9:16 am

Yeah there’s absolutely no such thing as mid growth stocks. Nope… no such thing.

Formerly Preferred September 22, 2008 at 9:16 am

I’ve got a fun idea. Let’s ask Sarah Palin to explain why there is no such thing as mid-growth stocks. That should be coherent.

SwanSwanH September 22, 2008 at 9:16 am

Why does gay Muslim rogue trader Barack Obama hate my stock portfolio?

Hunter Gathers September 22, 2008 at 9:19 am

UUUUUhhhhh, what? Wow. To the wet-sack conservative who ‘found’ this : get out of granny’s basement and get a job you fucktard.

Dientes September 22, 2008 at 9:19 am

Don’t make jokes, Barry! The Republicans get really scared when black men try to make funnies. I know you demonstrated that you were trying to learn more about investment/the economy in that clip, but learning is for ELITISTS!! If you don’t know something about a specific topic, be proud of your ignorance, and then say we may have to go to war with it. Nothing solves problems better than violence.

This falls squarely in the Who Gives A Shit file.

[re=103011]Formerly Preferred[/re]: Well, you see, mid-growth stocks, or as we call them in Alaska, low-growth stocks with lipstick, are frungible, and made of molecules, and we need to protect this precious natural resource with the environmental regulation that John McCain didn’t have for FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN!.

Monkey September 22, 2008 at 9:22 am

What’s a stock?

SuperRounder September 22, 2008 at 9:25 am

At least he hasn’t tried to fire the Chairman of the SEC.

Hunter Gathers September 22, 2008 at 9:28 am

[re=103017]Strictly for the Tardcore[/re]: My shoes are ‘frungible’ and I have been wearing them for FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN. Is Caribou Barbie a character from the Simpsons? If she get to use made up words like that, than I get to as well. Example : Barack Obama is a perfectly cromulent canidate.

MarieDeGournay September 22, 2008 at 9:35 am

Duh, duh, dunnnn! Oh how scary! The evil black man is making fun of my stocks! I swear, if this the worst he could come up with my hope for Hopey winning on the economy just took flight. Idiots.

Delicious September 22, 2008 at 9:37 am

fave quote of the week:

Palin said the economy needs “some shakin’ up and some fixin.”


SwanSwanH September 22, 2008 at 9:38 am

[re=103024]Hunter Gathers[/re]: And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabbercuda, with lips of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as she came!

Hunter Gathers September 22, 2008 at 9:42 am

[re=103028]SwanSwanH[/re]: That makes more sense than Hanky Paulson’s bailout (taxpayer assfucking).

Special Agent Jack Mehoff September 22, 2008 at 9:43 am

How was this “moran” able to even post a video, when they can’t even google “mid-cap
stock”? Sara, this look deep into the duality of man will surely give me food for thought the rest of the day. Thank you so much.

ProgHead777 September 22, 2008 at 9:44 am

[re=103008]HuskyMescan[/re]: Interesting article.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac together paid Mr. Davis’s firm $35,000 a month. Mr. Davis “didn’t really do anything,” Mr. McCarson, a Democrat, said.

Which is the literal definition of bribery, no?

Also, I learned that Rick Davis looks like Mr. Burns from almost every angle.

rambone September 22, 2008 at 9:46 am

Yeah right! Like I’m going to let a black man hold my wallet.

Fool me once, shame on , shame on you, afooledmancantgetfooledagain.

Hunter Gathers September 22, 2008 at 9:48 am

[re=103032]ProgHead777[/re]: Rick Davis couldn’t hold Monty Burns’s Depends. I tend to think that Ricky D. looks like the sort of asshole that would foreclose on your grandma’s house. No more cookies for you!

njdon September 22, 2008 at 9:51 am

all these guys should just stick to broad brush issues and pothole filling. its a gambling operation.
textbook, playbook scenarios as demonstrated even in sports activities or just crossing the street can be hazardous to your health.

queeraselvis v 2.0 September 22, 2008 at 10:03 am

Well, judging from the grammar quality of this dingus’s storyboard, I’d say Mr. Econ 101 Genius here needs to be bitch-slapped back to first semester Freshman Comp.

Giant Robot September 22, 2008 at 10:47 am

Tea bills? OMG he not only sips tea he hangs with people who invest in tea! Elitist commie prick!!!

user-of-owls September 22, 2008 at 10:49 am

I had a mid-growth once, but the doctor was able to get most of it out with a laser.

Kaylub September 22, 2008 at 10:50 am

So what? The choice is between two guys who aren’t economic experts…I guess I’ll take the one who is less dumb? The one who maybe wasn’t involved in the Keating Five or the LAST big economic freakout…?

user-of-owls September 22, 2008 at 10:53 am

[re=103018]Monkey[/re]: Or these days, what’s growth?

Miller September 22, 2008 at 11:09 am

I like my stock to be chicken or beef based. I use it in soups.

V572625694 September 22, 2008 at 11:37 am

[re=103011]Formerly Preferred[/re]: In what respect, Churly?

HuskyMescan September 22, 2008 at 11:40 am

[re=103039]Hunter Gathers[/re]:[re=103032]ProgHead777[/re]:
At least we can have a beer with Mr. Burns. Mr. Burns rarely cries and whines as much as Rick Davis, sleazy car salesman.

Oscar Folsom Cleveland September 22, 2008 at 11:42 am

Wow, you know, that “” site is really really helpful! Not only do it clearly show B’iraq Hussein don’t know his mid-growth from his medium cap, but that he has some pretty strange “bedfellows” (and that Jeebus put queers on a cross in better days) and there’s cool artwork of big breasted womenz and John and Sarah on battleships with fireworks and shit.

I shore am glad there’s some truth and honisty coming out of these Internets finally. Whew.

Kev-O-Tron September 22, 2008 at 12:02 pm

As a person with an extensive background in investment banking I think…. Oh fuck it. Who am I kidding? The extent of my knowledge about the economy doesn’t go past my monthly pay day loans.

The shift away from boilerplate election issues towards our struggling economy has left me presidentially retarded. At this point I’m resigned to voting for whoever uses the most Econ 101 buzzwords I recognize from my college days. Either that or I’ll just vote for the good looking (read: clean and articulate -Joe Biden) black guy.

Norbert September 22, 2008 at 12:07 pm

i for one welcome our new naked emperor

Advocatus_Diaboli September 22, 2008 at 12:44 pm

In the future now every one idiot will be able to produce a negative stupid “campaign” ad.

Yay internets!

ohiogal September 22, 2008 at 4:30 pm

I think I know the guy who did this. He doesn’t cut his hair because he’s afraid that it won’t grow back.
