This final note on the way out. Don’t know if you noticed, but we didn’t mention Ben Bernanke or his testimony this morning before the House Financial Services Committee on the show today.

Wanna know why?

Here’s what he said yesterday to the Senate Banking Committee.

Ben Bernanke: The U.S. economy has continued to recover, but economic activity appears to have decelerated somewhat during the first half of the year.

And here he is today in the House.

Bernanke: The U.S. economy has continued to recover, but economic activity appears to have decelerated somewhat during the first half of the year.

You heard the difference, right?
