Presidential Confidence?

I've recently heard quite a number of talking heads discussing what has happened with the stock market indexes since the election of President Obama. I found this chart in A WSJ COMMENTARY today. Perhaps this suggests a lack of confidence in the new President. Then again, it could also reflect a lack of confidence in a Congress which already seems adamantly partisan and Democrat.

In any case, it seems the more Washington says it will fix the economy and this recession, the more it looks like the recession will continue. It seems to me that an increasingly interventionist Washington is making matters worse, not better.
