Every article I have read about Chris Lee states he is a republican.  Maybe because he IS a republican.

Your're right which is, of course, why he is resigning. If a Democrat there would be no need to. Perversion, adultery or even child molestation are not considered impediments to holding office for the Democrats.

The republicans don't want him any more.

That makes him an environmentalist, among other epithets.

Jimmy Swaggart, back in his heydey, used to denounce his enemies as 'the stained son (or spawn) of Satan'.

If Bernanke is Satan then shouldn't Mervyn King be a spawn or son of Satan rather than another Satan operating independantly of the Satan in Chief?

Bernanke is again talking out of both sides of his mouth. Not long ago he advised the US Gov that they needed to cut the budget and show some 'fiscal responsibility'... Now Ben is saying...

"The cost to the recovery would outweigh the benefits in terms of fiscal discipline," Bernanke told the House of Representatives' Budget Committee. "I think we really need to take a long-term view."

After this dung heap collapses Ben will be able to point out that he recommended both courses... fiscal responsibility and no fiscal responsibility.

Ron is the fall guy for the next era.  When $683 trillion goes up in smoke, only bad things can happen.  Hope it was good for you.
