This has been the worst reaction to a presidential election in history.
The stock market continued to slide today.
Obama Post-Election Slide—
Today the market dropped 428 points.
This is the largest post election stock market sell off in history. The market is down at least 1,000 points since the election. Today the Dow ended below 8000 points for the first time since 2003.
It probably didn’t help that Barack Obama announced today that he chose Tom Daschle to head the Health and Human Services Secretary. Ezra Klein at The American Prospect notes that this is the clearest evidence yet that Obama means to pursue comprehensive health reform.
This can’t be a good sign for the free market economy.
