The S&P 500 has had a good run under President Obama's current term, increasing +69.9% since he took office in January of 2009. By comparison, George W. Bush saw the index falll -28.2% during his second term in office. Looks like Bernanke and Federal Reserve's nonstop quantitative easing have treated the President well.
