Response to Javaman (Reply #7)

9. it's infuriating. cnbc showed nonstop pundits and ceos complaining about "uncertainty" when obama

was president, when the fed left interest rates unchanged for years on end and when congress was a stalemate for years on end.

obama's last 6 years in particular were the most stable and predictable 6 years on record, but that didn't stop the media complaining about some mythical "uncertainty".

then along comes a one-man wrecking crew called donnie, bull in a china shop, imposes tariffs on china to end the bull market.
no one know what he's going to do next because that uncertainty is exactly his game.

but does cnbc complain about the uncertainty? not really, not in the same way at all. the uncertainty now is in the outcomes, about how china will react, not about any uncertainty coming out of "washington".
