Hard to judge

I'm sure Bernanke gets a lot of crap he doesn't deserve in addition to all of the criticism he does deserve. Being bad at running an institution that shouldn't exist and is structurally engineered to encourage corruption doesn't make him a bad human being. Just flawed, like the rest of us.

The best thing we can do is convince people, however long that takes, that our side is right. Things like Rick Perry saying he would hang Bernanke for treason is a waste of time and counterproductive to convincing people that the Fed needs to close its doors.
