    In my view, bernanke is doing way too much micro managing of rates....first he's going to maintain qe infinity until unemployment gets down to 6.5, right? so this week we get higher unemployment and this follows a week or two of bernanke squabbling about tapering qe? He's nuts!!! why put the entire lower interest rate plan for jump starting the economy in jeapardy? that's essentially what he was doing when he talked about tapering when he really had no idea at all that tapering would be necessary in the next 6 to 12 months. just because you are leaving in january, 2014 ben, do you you really have to cause another disaster in the markets before you shove off just to pocket some short term cap gains of your own, if you know what i mean? that's what it appears to be, in the eyes of investors who are fed up with all the manipulation tactics. for heavens sake, either say you are full pedal to the floor on qe until you definately hit 6 to 6.5 percent unemployment, or just pull qe out by it's roots now. get with it ben! and, i'm not alone on my words to you. more than a dozen other savy investors have commented negatively on your cute little move 2 weeks ago just to push rates where they weren't ready to go on their own. now ups is telling us that the economy and their trucking bus. Is sliding this quarter and next, not a good sign of economic strength. The unemployment rate just ticket up this week....and mortgage apps fell again for the 4th time in 5 weeks. you also jacked oil and gas to the moon with your tough tapering words. you are truly trying to crack the economy aren't you? because that's what it looks like to those of us who can read and add things up that you do to manipulate rates. please stop it already, you're just scaring smart money to the sidelines and those who did pocket generously from the massive run in stocks and bonds over past 3 years, are simply stepping into cash and waiting this manic moment out. is that what you wanted as result?
