Breaking News - President Obama Doesn't Screw Something Up
I understand it is damning with faint praise, but with the current administration it is very noteworthy when they don't screw up. In this case it is really just a matter of keeping a Bush appointee on board for a second term.
Praising him as the man who shepherded the United States past the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, President Barack Obama on Tuesday announced plans to keep Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke in his job for another term.Some criticized Bernanke's handling of things last year. Heck, some say we shouldn't even have a federal reserve. However, regardless of one's opinion of Bernanke it is obvious that he will provide more stability than anyone Obama was likely to appoint.
Considering the constant errors and mistakes of this administration (appointing various tax cheats, prosecuting CIA for efforts to combat terrorism while excusing Black Panther thugs intimidating voters, lying about tax cuts for 95% of Americans, initiating a boycott of a political opponent, attempts to push socialized medicine down our throats, etc, etc, etc.) I think it is important to applaud or at least let out a sigh of relief when they don't screw up.
