A lot of people are starting to think that Ben Bernanke shouldn't be allowed to continue on as Fed Chairman. I'm not one of them. He seems to be holding up pretty well in the job. Admittedly, he's not very believable but given the line he's got to spout, who would be?
The last thing anybody wants right now, is someone who will tell the truth and advocate the kind of policies that would do some good. We all just want to pretend things are under control and will soon get better. For that, Ben is our guy.
