One of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's biggest critics said that he deserves Time magazine's "Person of the Year" award bestowed to him on Wednesday.
Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), one of Bernanke's greatest critic, said that the award is fitting because Bernanke is the "most powerful man in the world."
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said that Paul had admitted off camera that Bernanke deserved the award because of his economic power. Paul replied "He is. He is the most powerful man in the world. I believe a case can be made for that... He controls the supply of money, which is the reserve currency of the world."
The Texas congressman added "He could create a trillion dollars in secret without any monitoring of the Congress...I think he's more powerful than the president."

Bernanke is World’s Greatest Counterfeiter
That made no sense.
That made more sense.
Hmmmmmmmm...I noticed that Neal Cavuto is about to discuss this after the commercial break. Interesting!
The ONLY reason Time gave this award to Bernanke is so no major blame can be placed on Obama and old Ben can be made the fall guy, IF the economy continues headed south. IF the economy goes into a double-dip recession, the liberal establishment can blame Bush for Bernanke and not the real culprit, Obama! If unemployment stays high and no jobs are created in 2010, the MSM will blame Bush anyway. Either way, Obama is off ther hook.
Maybe we should just blame Herbert Hoover and be done with it! LOL
Welcome to Obama's America!
Bernanke—by a nose over Tiger Woods.
