Bernanke understands that when inflation picks up steam, it will be too late for control by Fed policy.

On the other hand, Galt would love to see high interest rates.

1. The Sandy bill was loaded with irrelevant pork, unrelated to the rainstorm.
2. The Sandy bill paid for beach shacks in Breezy Point that should have been condemned years ago as unsafe for human habitation.
3. The Sandy bill paid for reconstruction of beach houses that were either secondary residences or rental properties, not primary residences.
4. Sandy was not a hurricane.
All those objections were negotiable, but you haven't answered the question; how is emergency relief aid for Hurricane Sandy victims 'different ' from emergency relief aid for Oklahoma tornado victims--it's still money that was argued by you and Inhofe 'money Government doesn't have to spend'.

The Republican position was and is that such disaster aid should be offset by spending cuts in other programs.

After five years of your stupidity concerning inflation, it's time to give it up.

Ben Bernanke proved you to be an idiot, yet you persist.

You claim not to be a masochist, yet your behavior indicates that's exactly what you are.

The stock market says you're an idiot.

The housing market says you're an idiot.

The collapse of Gold and Silver prove that you're an idiot.

Beck got you nitwits to buy gold, and you're getting ripped to shreds by a Bear Market in Gold.

I'm delighted by the abject ignorance of you Teabaggers.

Here's news from the real world that you nitwits don't recieve thru your tinfoil hats;

" Larry Kudlow Makes A Stunning Admission About Changing His Mind On Bernanke"

"host Larry Kudlow is a throwback to an '80s-style supply-side conservative, who has maintained that any interference in the free market is damaging, the dollar should be strong, and inflation is the primary evil against which the Fed should be on guard.
Throughout the economic crisis, he's criticized the lax policies of Bernanke.

But following the election of 2012, and the improvement in the economy, the fever is breaking a bit, and a new strain of thinking on monetary policy is infecting the mainstream right.
And today in The National Review, Kudlow makes a stunning admission: Ben Bernanke might have been right all along.
Kudlow's piece draws on the hot school of "Market Monetarists" who draw on the work of Milton Friedman to endorse the idea that the best Fed policy is one that pursues a Nominal GDP target.

Just for the sake of argument, Larry Kudlow knows far more about the economy than a Social Security and Medicare taker like you.

All you know is hatred and ignorance, both of which you excel at.

You should not call your elders "son", son.

Now, back to the post you are dodging. There are questions in the post you are avoiding answering. Please provide an answer to the question.
Here is the post again for your convenience.

You pretend to know some things....
Tell us why you think Bush was not a good president. I mean, every other excuse coming out of your mouth was "Bush did it, too."
So, if Bush was such a great president, tell us why the other side of your mouth disagrees.

(hint: there is a statement in the post that reads: "tell us why you think Bush was not a good president." You can start your response there. I'll be back tomorrow to check your homework. And, the assignment on the Cold War is due, also.)
