  • Busch: A Modest Suggestion-Keep It In Perspective Tuesday, 20 Jan 2009 | 10:20 AM ET

    Today is an historic day for the United States as we inaugurate our 44th president Barack Hussein Obama. To say that the world holds it's collective breath today is an understatement.

  • How Big-Government Is Obama? Friday, 9 Jan 2009 | 8:48 AM ET

    Obama has offered an $800 billion package, with plenty of infrastructure spending that alleges to create three million jobs. Nobody really believes infrastructure spending will end the recession or create permanent new jobs. However, it’s interesting just how much the Obama plan has changed since the election.

    Andrew Busch

    As Congress comes back from vacation and starts a new session with new members, the first task is the stimulus plan. While President-elect Obama had hoped for a bill to sign by his inauguration, the political wheels are unable to spin fast enough to produce a document until mid-February.

  • Who's To Blame For Failure Of Auto Bailout? Friday, 12 Dec 2008 | 9:37 AM ET
    Bailout Denied

    "Karnac the Magnificent" I am not. Heck, for weeks I've been predicting Congress would ultimately come up with a bailout for the Big 3. So after the Senate shot down the aid package last night, it's no wonder my wife said to me, "Gee Einstein, guess you were wrong about what would happen on Capitol Hill."

  • Auto Bailout Is Nationalization of Dinosaurs: Hendry Wednesday, 10 Dec 2008 | 4:15 AM ET

    The automakers' bailout will not boost Wall Street as investors are unlikely to see advantages in subsidies granted to "dinosaurs," Hugh Hendry, chief investment officer and partner at Eclectica told CNBC.

  • An Alternative to Bailout Nation Wednesday, 3 Dec 2008 | 1:39 PM ET

    At his news conference this morning, where he introduced New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson as Commerce-secretary designate, President-elect Obama refused to play his hand on the Detroit/GM bailout story. That tells me he’s aware that the country is getting fed up with the thought of bailout nation.

  • Predictions: 9 For '09 From Analyst Greg Valliere Monday, 1 Dec 2008 | 2:12 PM ET

    After watching the dysfunctional, bickering Congress and a Bush Administration that looks out of gas, there are finally legitimate reasons for optimism coming from Washington—and when was the last time you heard that?

  • Will Democrats Tinker With Mutual Funds, 401k Plans? Wednesday, 5 Nov 2008 | 6:21 PM ET

  • Obama Proposes Ambitious Health Care Plan Wednesday, 5 Nov 2008 | 1:31 PM ET

    President-elect Barack Obama has proposed an ambitious plan to reform U.S. health care and get insurance for at least some of the 46 million Americans who now lack it.

  • Chandler: No Clear Market Reaction to Obama Wednesday, 5 Nov 2008 | 9:26 AM ET

    left/CNBC/Sections/News_And_Analysis/_Blogs/Guest_Blog/__COVER/chandler_marc_100.jpg110010055lefttruehttp://msnbcmedia.msn.comfalse1Pfalsefalse It is difficult to detect a clear market reaction to the US electoral results.  The US dollar is broadly firmer, but after yesterday's big setback, it seems largely technical in nature.

  • It's All Over But the T-Shirts Wednesday, 5 Nov 2008 | 1:25 AM ET

    While the celebrating started in Chicago and elsewhere, here in the ballroom at McCain headquarters the crowd wasn't aware that the major networks had declared Barack Obama the next President.

  • And So It Goes ... Tuesday, 4 Nov 2008 | 11:19 PM ET

    While the celebrating started in Chicago and elsewhere, here in the ballroom at McCain headquarters the crowd wasn't aware that the major networks had declared Barack Obama the next President.

  • At McCain Headquarters -- Johnny Cash! Tuesday, 4 Nov 2008 | 10:52 PM ET

    First we had Hank Williams, Jr. come out on stage at the McCain party and, frankly, give a great little unplugged concert. One song he sang was, "I Walk the Line," telling the audience that June Carter Cash was his godmother.

  • Time to Move to the Lawn Tuesday, 4 Nov 2008 | 9:56 PM ET

    A huge cheer went up in the ballroom at McCain headquarters as former Lousiana Gov. Buddy Roemer announced Louisiana went for McCain.

Although this sounds like a rather dubious proposition, there is much merit to it.

  • Will McCain Make the Investor Connection? Wednesday, 8 Oct 2008 | 4:17 PM ET

    While the presidential candidates were debating in Nashville on Tuesday night the Asian stock markets were selling off by 10 percent. Earlier in the day the U.S. market plunged by 500 points. These were big-time drops, yet presidential debaters never talk about the stock market. Nashville was no exception.

  • McCain, Obama Camps Trade Barbs on Negative Ads Monday, 6 Oct 2008 | 11:14 AM ET
