This is what is holding up the health care bill, for example. It isn’t the vote, it is the cloture. So this particular instance isn’t about Bernanke – even though the vote concerned his re-confirmation – it is about health care.

Yeah, right into Bernanke’s confirmation when Reid asked him for favors in exchange for his vote. This whole “Fed is apolitical” nonsense is beyond stupid and anyone peddling it should immediately be branded a fah king we todd.

Bernanke, Paulson, and Geithner claim no involvement in the Government Sachs (via AIG) bailout. So who called the 100%-CDS-payout shot that kept Government Sachs alive?

Politics can go elsewhere, let him concentrate on his job. The dangers of changing horse at this crucial moment is drastic, yet these guys persist in playing politics right till then end……
