    I am amazed at Bernanke's comments. He really has no idea what is happening in the world.

    Even his voice and tone delivery sound shaky. Maybe he's just nervous... but why? He can't be camera-shy at this point...

    He does not care,
    you commit to this line of action long enough and you reach the point of no turning back!

     

    Bernanke does not have in it him to say / admit to being WRONG!
    Horribly wrong!
    And then the impossible point of now having to be (effective?) if possible?
    It is no win, and the American standard of living are the offering on the table of the all knowing fed!
    There is no good call here folks!
