If Obama was such a "Change" agent, wouldn't he replace the Fed chief?
Can you name any other person in his administration left over from the Bush administration?
Good point! And notice carefully that despite the entire economic recovery play book that both Bush and Obama are fully obliged to follow to the letter being written and coached by Helicopter Ben Bernanke, all Obama is left to do when Bernanke's plan utterly fails and it makes him (as President) look like an idiot (just as it did for Bush) is to mutter endless blathering nonsense about it all being Bush's fault. Never a peep from either of them about any of this recovery charade being Ben's problem from the very start. Never a peep either with respect to the Federal Reserve System itself being the very root cause of the entire endless and repetitive history of bubblemania, downturn, bustmania, recovery, recovery 2, recovery 3, etc... You never bite the hand that feeds you. Especially when it has you on a short leash.
The first President to bite and bite hard at the root of this evil will be the one who leads us into recovery. This individual will need to revive the soul and spirit of Andrew Jackson first though, or at least admit that he was right all along.http://www.campaignforliberty.org/profi ... ntral-bank
