George Will - Auditing the Fed is "a zany idea" (George is against it.)

George, George, George. Every time I think you are coming to your senses, you write something awful.

So he wants the money machine operators to

go unchecked? Nice Will, REALLY intelligent of you.

Fed secrecy supporters are some of the least sensible people I have ever encountered.

Oh no. This is so

Oh no. This is so disappointing. George has said so many pro RP things lately; he must have had to take a stand against him to not look too kooky.

Bernanke as person of the year is like gining a reward to an arsonist for putting out his own fire.

George Will has always been a know-nothing re money and econ.

Plus, he wants to keep that msm gig.

No surprise.

They've gotten to him.

He doesn't even know how to write like a statist... very unconvincing arguments.

Dang it... I thought he was one of the good ones. I've welcomed his commentary ever since he stated, "Don't forget my man, Ron Paul here!" on This Week. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0S0M2a2lYxw
This is deeply disappointing.

Make Bernanke Times Person of the year?! Ugh!

And Dr. Paul does not want to 'break the Fed to Congress' saddle'... that's what anti-Fed liberals want. We (at least I) want the FREE MARKET to determine interest rates. Not some politicians.

Just goes to show you, don't get too attached to any of them. All it takes is a phone call or a knock on the door. Question EVERYTHING.

The Fed is fighting back as

The Fed is fighting back as we expected but Joe and Jane Sixpack need only to read one headline to turn that back around: FED HELPED CAUSE FINANCIAL CRISIS, ECONOMISTS SAY

Sheeple aren't hearing this. It would complement the secrecy argument against the Fed.

Economists are always polled on such things. It needs to happen.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

I am amazed by the number of people

That give Bernake credit for saving us from financial ruin.

First, we are not out of the woods yet, and second, he actually had a large part in causing the crisis.


I am going to tell the IRS that they are being "zany" if they ever seek to audit me.


bump for discussion

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

I stopped reading here...

"If Time magazine has a lick of sense, Bernanke will be its Person of the Year because his leading role in stabilizing the financial system enabled the president to pursue other objectives."

I feared retching on my keyboard.

Doesn't Will Claim To Be A "Conservative?"

I wouldn't expect such a nutty comment from even Geithner.

Man, that's weird. I suppose George thinks Obama deserves another Peace Prize.

Yep. Sickening. I am

Yep. Sickening. I am hearing and reading that stuff now on all the MSM. They's a-skeered, I tell ya.

I left a couple of comments on the article.

"Fully half the quotations found on the internet are either mis-attributed, or outright fabrications." - Abraham Lincoln

Neo Con Puppet

If you ever doubted that George Will was Not a Neo Con puppet taking orders on what to say and do - your proof is right there.

In a perverted way I kind of agree with the Time Magazine of the Year analysis.

Ben Bernanke voted Man of the Year for... Taking Trillions of deficit spending from an Irresponsible Congress and hiding the massive reckless spending of the congress in secret books that nobody is allowed to see - thus delaying the inevitable for another year or two.

Of course they'll give MOY to Bernanke

They have to bail out their man and get him renominated to the post or their entire house of cards comes down.

Not suprising

who signs his paycheck?

ABC News, Newseek, and Washington Post

Washington Post has been particularly hostile to auditing the Fed

Aint that the truth, Jive.

I sometimes think that Will just always wants to be "different". He is SO inconsistent...... consistently!
