President Bush (the second) appointed him in 2006, which IMHO was a dumb move. President Obama reappointed him in 2010, which IMHO was an even dumber move; I was HOPING for a CHANGE. Presidential contender Mittens Romney says he would not reappoint Bernanke in 2014, which I find rather endearing (Obama has not offered his stance on Bernanke’s future).
