first off,3 weeks ago Paulison says housing has bottomed. we all know that was bullshit. then Bernanke says it may have bottomed but he was'nt sure. he been calling a bottom for the past 6 months and its never there. then Paulison comes out yesterday and says the sub prime mess is contained! how the hell does he know? does he have skinny on every single hedgefund/ he should shut up and let the markets work itself out. if he actually had facts to back up what he says then thats fine but pulling shit out of the sky is irresponsible. at least greenspan spoke from a more factual standpoint .
