True enough. (At partially anyway, the market was just above 9500 when Bush left office)

But really getting the stock market to rise isn't difficult at all providing the Federal Reserve does two things; (1) simply print money out of thin air (QE 1, 2 & 3) and (2) hold interest rates below 1%.

By doing these somple things the dollar becomes less valuable and investors are chased into the stock market. And the more people buying stocks, the market rises. Unfortunately you also get inflation.
