Banksta Bernank takes ‘questions’ from the leashed hounds we call the free press 2:15pm EST

Update: 3:56pm EST: Oh did I say Gold was at 141522? It is now at $1529.40 SLV $48.10 Oil $113. USD down, down, down 73.30. Equities continuing to mainline from the punchbowl Bernanke is clearly not taking away. DOW up 101.15. The TBTF Bankstas are gonna ride the USD right into the ground if TPTB let them.

Update: 3:08pm EST: Foreign Presse France asking about the concerns many nations have about the results of the Fed actions on the sovereign currency..cough, cough, Now Ben spinning the Geithner STRONG DOLLAR TOTAL BS LINE.

Reagan and Clinton had strong dollar in my lifetime. No one else. Hey they had that super growth thing too didn’t they? Don’t try telling the Ivy League Economics Club that though.

Update: 3:06pm EST: An hour in and another nominal record for Goldilocks~ $1526.20. Yowsa. Ben has used the buzz words ‘transitory, moderate’ to describe inflation so many times I would have alcohol posinoning were I playing the drinking game.

Update: 11:08am AZ Time- GOLD at $1522.80, USD at 3 yr low as Ben takes stage.

ZeroHedge will be liveblogging in case ANYONE asks a REAL question.

I would ask:

Ben do you like the American Middle Class?

What purpose does the Middle Class serve in the American economy?

How has QE and ZIRP ‘helped’ or ‘harmed’ the Middle Class?

If the Middle Class is the largest % population in America, doesn’t your dual mandate for full employment/stable prices apply to this population cohort above all others?

Is it your intention to drive down wages for the Middle Class while allowing prices of food and energy to continue to spike year after year, all while claiming there is no inflation?

WHY ARE YOU KILLING THE MIDDLE CLASS?

PS- Why did the Federal Reserve bailout QADAFFI and leave the American Middle Class to twist in the wind?
