All hail the Bush Recovery!

The Dow Jones industrial average, which measures the performance of 30 blue-chip companies, rose more than 140 points in afternoon trading on Tuesday, surpassing its previous record close of 14,164.53, which it achieved nearly five and a half years ago, as well as its record intraday high, set around the same time, of 14,198.10.


Since a low point in March 2009, the Dow Jones index has more than doubled, stunning even the most seasoned stock market watchers.
