After seeing the utter complete incompetence by Donald Rumsfeld, Bush's Ben Bernanke really takes the cake! This morning was such a "joke" I don't even know where to start . . . That's what we get with someone that was an "academic" and head of the Princeton Economics Dept. Bill Gross had it right earlier today when he said that the U.S. economy now relies on housing and stock prices to go up ( tongue and cheek ) according to Bernanke. Couldn't wait a whole 8 days for the upcoming Fed meeting. Unreal.
