A bit obnoxious as a headline for the Wall Street Journal (and of us for telegraphing it), no? Really, the entire piece makes this entry more about the continuing slide in Wall Street Journal quality than any political statement or position. (Actually, we find it quite amusing what some of the readers here think our politics are, though).
It should go without saying that the Journal is being beyond manipulative here. It is a statement that we are simply annoyed rather than outraged. Nothing the Journal does anymore seems to surprise us.
Perhaps Mr. Bernanke's blunderbuss political intrusion will win him more Democrat friends, and maybe even Mr. Obama's goodwill. To the rest of the world, he has harmed the Fed and made himself less credible.
