Smokey, don’t get excited, it’s the paper pink slip, not the one he wears
Bernanke, we’re making changes. You’re one of them.You should have gotten both of Captain Obvious’s memos—one titled “Arab Spring,” the other going by “#Occupy Wall Street.” Just the very fact that we are having this conversation clearly indicates that your complete lack and understanding is not limited to just our economy.
Let me spell this out for you.
The memos indicate that 99% of the world has had enough with the Federal Reserve system and its “leadership”. Together the two account for 99% of the world’s ills.
Former Comptroller General David Walker said: “The fourth and most serious of all [of America’s deficits] is our leadership deficit.” Bernanke, you and former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan are poster boys for personifying America’s “Most Serious Leadership Deficit.”
That’s really putting it too kindly though. After all, you helped create the Second Great Depression, so we don’t have to be polite about this, and I’m not going to be.
