This is the kind of raw genius I've come to expect from Mr. Perfect S.A.T. Score and M.I.T. genius, Ben Bernanke.
The job market is far from normal? No shit. It's hideous. What would we do without your insightful candor, Ben? Just keep shoveling our tax dollars to your banker cronies. We get it.
But the best part of this piece is that Bernanke says he is optimistic about the second half of 2011. Just have patience people. Not only do they kick the debt can down the road, but they blow smoke up our asses as well. How long can Ben lie? Only as long as everyone keeps believing him. Like sands through the hourglass, so goes the years of our lives.
Still think Obama cans this guy to try and save his ass.
Magically, the jobs will appear. Trust me. http://money.cnn.com/2011/06/07/news/economy/bernanke_speech_federal_reserve_economy/index.htm
