The $200 billion bail-out for predator banks and Spitzer charges are intimately linked

While New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was paying an ‘escort’ $4,300 in a hotel room in Washington, just down the road, George Bush’s new Federal Reserve Board Chairman, Ben Bernanke, was secretly handing over $200 billion in a tryst with mortgage bank industry speculators.

Both acts were wanton, wicked and lewd. But there’s a BIG difference. The Governor was using his own checkbook. Bush’s man Bernanke was using ours...[more]

No votes yet

Just curious, why is Bernanke "Bush's man?" Bernanke was widely supported by almost everyone in the Senate in both political parties. Think before writing...........

HaHa, if you're addressing the author I doubt he reads this blog. But the point you make really doesn't address the content of the article

To be honest, I didn't even notice that was linking to an article. I just read what showed up on here and assumed you were the author.

Anyway, it goes without saying now that my comment wasn't about the article. It was about the labelling of anything and everything that someone disagrees with to GWB. It also plays into the idea that Bush somehow has his hands in everything that has to do with power or money in this country. I don't think Bernanke really is "Bush's man" like the author claims. He was one of the most widely accepted and celebrated nominees that Bush has put up for a confirmation vote.

thanks for the post, Chris.
