The Wall Street reaction to Bernanke’s prediction that interest rates are bound to go up, a very likely probability, will be followed by the usual infusions of cash by the fed. When that happens, and it has happened every time interest rates went up, the drop in the DOW average will be erased overnight.
I hate to see Bernanke fall into the same egotistical trap that Greenspan did when he couldn’t keep his mouth shut about the price of securities.
Greenspan once admitted that he liked to see the effect of his statements on the markets. I can’t stand Greenspan. He’s an egotistical clown who caused a lot of unnecessary trouble by shooting off his big mouth.
Dubya should have heeded his father’s advice and not appointed Greenspan to the Fed.
And now…. The REAL Cartoon Of The Day!
What a pathetic fool Obozo looked like in Europe this week.

Have a nice day!
“Tell Vladimir, after my next election, I will have more flexibility.” – Barack Hussein Obozo caught on microphone promising Vladimir he will screw America after he does not have to worry about the stupid voters again.
One of BH Obama’s real failings (as opposed to the legion of failings the hard-right credits him with) is that he’s rather timid about doing what needs to be done, regardless of opposition. Such as those who say he will “screw America” by dealing honestly with Russia.
Dealing with Russia with “honesty” has nothing to do with whether or not Obozo screws America. Honesty has nothing to do with it. Before you get your panties in a knot, think of this: If Obozo wants to honestly screw America, then he is doing it honestly. If instead he honestly wishes to build America’s stature and deal from a position of strength, he can be said to be dealing with honesty. So, if honesty applies in either case of good or bad intentions, it therefore is of no consequence.
You are correct that he is too timid. But that’s a hallmark of all America hating leftist freaks. He and Jimmy Carter are cut from the same cloth. The only things Obozo wants in foreign policy is the anhialation of Israel and the degradation of the US’s global dominance. This is why our former allies do not trust us any longer, and our foreign enemies do not respect us any longer. 4 years ago, Obozo had 1/4 MILLION people come to see him in Berlin. This week, only 2,000 came, and most of them laughed at him. He has been getting brutalized by the Euro media since that trip. The only leader over there that might still like him is the French Socialist punk that was put in last year. After all, one socialist will naturally like another socialist.
Obozo is the wost thing to ever happen to the American cause since Jimmy Carter.
“The worst thing that can happen to a good cause is, not to be skillfully attacked, but to be ineptly defended.” ― Frédéric Bastiat
As usual, Bozo, you are having a problem with facts. A common failing with conservatives. The largest German crowd was for Kennedy’s 1963 speech (450,000). Obama only drew 200,000 in 2008 and that crowd was due to their curiosity as to whether Obama was as hateful and worthless as Bush had been. This year the crowd was limited to 4,500 people and you could only be there if you had an invitation.
You are delusional,Ralphie, if you think that Obozo would prefer only a few thousand over hundreds of thousands. He couldn’t attract more than a few curiosity seekers looking to find out what a real fool looks and acts like. His trip to Europe was an absolute disaster for him and the Europeans, unlike many, many Americans, can see him and judge him for what he is… a week-kneed punk who lies through his pie hole and a narcissist unaware of his own foolishness and incompetence.
BTW… I did not mention anything about JFK or about records of crowds in Berlin for other presidents. Just this idiot Obozo’s own track record which obviously, if he was a stock being traded, would be considered to have tanked enormously.
Have a nice weekend, Ralphie!
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency…Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who
is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” – Czech Republic newspaper Prager Zeitung
Bozo, you seem to have completely missed the fact that no one could attend President Obama’s speech unless they had a personal invitation to be there and ONLY 4,500 people were invited so it is obvious that SOMEONE thought that was the preferred number to be in attendance. Of course, that ignores the few thousand security personnel, German & American, in the area. I am surprised that anyone in the audience had the strength to applaud & so few fainted after being forced to wait for hours in the sun (it was about 90) and not being allowed to have any water bottles.
I did not say that you had said anything about JFK but I wanted to point out that Obama had only had 200,000 (NOT a 1/4 million) at his speech and how small Obama’s 2008 crowd was by German standards. It is also obvious that Obama’s stock must be pretty high in Germany considering how many Germans were paying for the privilege of getting an invitation and being in the audience.
