  • And why shouldn’t Bernanke be called on to discuss the banking industry’s craven, liberal fascist, long-term alliance with liberal housing groups? Together, the community organizers, their sponsoring politicians and the Fed (in charge of the banks, which have been “public-private partnerships” since the inception of the Fed) blew the housing bubble and destroyed the world economy.

    Or shall we be deferent to Bernanke, “eminent economists,” and “ownership society” and “housing justice” politicians that drove us off the cliff? Let’s give them a chance to get it right? Can I fit any more “scare quotes” in this comment?

    Let’s see: Bachmann, or Barney Frank/Chris Dodd/Tim Geithner/Hank Paulson/Ben Bernanke/Alan Greenspan/John McCain/George W. Bush/Barack Obama. Bachmann or the collected tools of the FIRE economy (finance, insurance, real estate).

    Bachmann for president.
