UPDATE: The Great Obama Bull Market will roar till 2016

Yes, it's time to celebrate. We're in a historic bull market. GOP conservatives keep fighting the wrong war, against the Obama economy. Meanwhile, the Obama bull market keeps roaring ahead!. And the long term looks even better: Bullish pundits predict stocks will continue climbing into the 2016 presidential election.

Folks, this stock market has been roaring since March 2009 when the DJIA bottomed at 6,547, a painful 53.9% drop from the October 2007 high of 14,164 during the Wall Street bank credit crash in Bush's last year as president. The S&P 500 also bottomed, at 676, a 56.6% drop.

However, since March 2009 the stock market has been steadily climbing. Over five years. And the DJIA's made a remarkable recovery, to just under its next big milestone, 17,000. While the S&P500 is nearing 2,000, headed up. Yes, market gains over 250% ... and still climbing!

So what can we expect from the stock market by 2016 and the election of the next American president? More! Fabulous 250% gains so far. And bigger gains possible coming in the next couple years till we elect a new president. Maybe over 300%. Gains likely to favor a Democrat.

Get it? GOP conservatives may have been successful in slowing America's economic recovery. But the stock market is actually getting surprisingly stronger from this political war. With every Obama progressive move -- Obamacare, ERA regulations, equal pay for women, gay rights, minimum wages, stem-cell research, immigration, Osama bin Laden, deficit cuts and so much more -- GOP conservatives and the tea party learn little, only hear enough for another attack on Obama, offer no solutions, just opposition.

But the bull market keeps roaring and roaring. Get it? As the war against all-things-Obama accelerates, as the economic recovery slows, as the GOP fights infrastructure funding, as they fail to pass jobs stimulus programs ... the stock market gets stronger, roars bullishly ahead.

And the Great Obama Bull Market will help Democrats in 2016
