The Capitol Hill Daily is one of the innumerable right wing media operations, this one tied to the group Citizens United, that do “journalism” with a conservative slant. To show just how accurate their journalism is, they sent an email last week to their members telling them that Obama had “wrecked the stock market” and asking if they think he should be impeached for it:
Dear Concerned Reader,
Fearing the very worst, the nation’s super-rich are unloading their stocks at an alarming rate.
Even more troubling, the wealthiest 1% of Americans, who typically know the most, are the ones most anxious to sell.
You see, Obama just allowed 13 new tax increases to further slow the economy, wreck the stock market and make it even harder on the 12 million Americans already looking for work.
The bigger question is this…
Is Obama’s Latest Tax Screw Up Grounds For Impeachment?
The punchline? This email was sent out on the same day the stock market went above 15,000 for the first time in history. You know what it was the day Obama took office in 2009? 7949. Apparently “wrecked” means “almost doubled” on Planet Wingnuttia.
