Ben Bernanke knows how to make investors feel good

Still, worries will start coming up about the dollar getting debased and inflation as the U.S. prints money. You could see those concerns rising Friday as investors pounced on commodities — everything from copper to gold. Oil was climbing too, but it was difficult to sort out the impact of Middle East unrest from investors pouring money into commodities.

This post inspired by Troy's "red cape" comment from the last post.

Who Struck John,

I am as confident that Bernanke has unleashed endless streams of prosperity as I am that this post will win me two Pulitzer Prizes (for photogaphy *and* journalism)!!

It's a win-win scenario! Hahaha!! ;)

Does this mean he's now bullish?

Deep down, how can he not be? He's one of the most powerful central bankers in the world and has a nearly infinite variety of prosperity generating tools at his disposal.

Am I laying it on too thick? Is anyone buying it? I'm afraid to look.
