In reply to comment: Ron (see in situ)

This was his opening statement, and Bernanke is not

given the opportunity to respond at this time. In Ron Paul's first 5 min. questioning period, he restated the facts---then asked Bernanke questions, and Bernanke had plenty of time to respond!
Bernanke then takes his time with negligible statements to use up time so Ron Paul has no time to ask ANOTHER question. He hates it when Ron Paul questions him.
