Bernanke getting grilled live about BAC/MER deal [#permalink] New post 25 Jun 2009, 08:50
WOW!

Some of these Congressional Representatives have no mercy! That's what I like to see in a democratic and free society.

Bernanke's face and tone say it all.

A lot of "I can't recall...", "under the advice of my attorneys...", etc....

I hope to get up some videos later...

Videos of the hearing and commentary:

Hopefully it can wake more people up to what's really going on behind the scenes. There are some questionable, and potentially illegal, actions that have taken place during the handling of the financial crisis. Paulson was a smart man to demand immunity last September.

The way things have been handled just smells like the same old "sweeping everything under the rug." We move on and never learn from the mistakes.

If we had this attitude we would also let all war crimes pass. We have a right to know what exactly did these "leaders" do under pressure and whether any leader can act with impunity in the next moment of crisis without any thoughts of future accountability.

All the "i dont remember" doesn't really help in fixing any accountablity.

I found the Kucinich questioning of Bernanke:

These are priceless, especially the 2nd.

Note the satirical ending of vid 2.
