    Study: Bernanke, Paulson misled public on bailouts

    Link
    Study: Bernanke, Paulson misled public on bailouts - Washington Times

    Shock-Horror how can this be.

    Democratic appointees behaving much the same a Republican appointees.

    Is this the "CHANGE" we were led to believe that would heal the ills of the USA Banking system?

    What does Obama and his statement of "change" have to do with Paulson misleading the weakness of banks back in September/October of 2008 under Bush?

    Hey, Juju-- if you're 'independent' then why are you reading the Washington Times?

    Right-wing slant, owned by Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church.

    Real mainstream...

    Why would you let something as trivial as facts get in the way of bitching about Obama?

    Maybe Bernanke's retnetion in his current job was his reward for his participation in sabotaging the economy.

    Maybe this is just about the most incredibly stupid thing posted on these boards in some time. Got any evidence, any at all to back up this incredibly unlikely claim?

    Sure, have you read the OP? It's purdy much obvious that the Dems sabotaged the economy. Who created the subprime crisis? Who over-inflated the bank instability issue? Who's been preaching that the sky is falling for the past several years? Who convinced the American people that we're in dire straights and caused them to stop spending money? Answer all those questions and you'll get all the proof you need.
