    How so?
     
  5. Too soon to tell. Unlike other Bush appointees he at least has some working knowledge in the field. Unlike the freakin lawyer he made Homeland Security Chief whose only claim to fame was prosecuting Susan McDougal.
     
  6. Budget deficit, trade deficit, falling dollar, outsourcing, stagnant wages, significant (under-reported) inflation, growing gap between the rich and the poor... I primarily blame the Bush administration and republican congress but Greenspan was 100% complicit. Bernanke inherited a huge mess, it's too early to say whether he'll make it worse
     
  7. You left out global warming, the dinosaurs becoming extinct, a swarm of African killer bees invading the Southwest, etc, etc, etc....they are all caused by the Republican party.

    Yawn.
     
  8. Strawman.



    Sweet dreams, honey.

    I don't follow. What does the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board have to do with any of those issues?
     
  10. Everything.
