Did Yellen Just Throw Greenspan/Bernanke Under The Bubble-Blowing Bus?

Reflecting on the rate hikes undertaken in the 2004-2006 period (ensuring the world not think that The Fed would repeat that) Janet Yellen appears to have thrown Greenspan and Bernanke under the bubble-blowing bus with an off the cuff comment that "with hindsight, The Fed should have hiked rates faster," during that period...

 

Which is odd since we assumed it was The Fed's job to inflate financial assets to prove the real economy was doing great?
