The Big Mouth of Democrat Senator DODD:
ht: Glen Reynolds:
"Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D) -Conn., sent bank stocks into a tailspin Friday with an unguarded comment. The White House had to issue its own comment later to restore equilibrium to stock markets. Some speculators could have made or lost millions. . . . He didn’t know anything. He was just shooting off his mouth. But major bank stocks lost a quarter to a third of their entire value in a matter of minutes."

A little excerpt from above:
Bernanke Statement about "NO" to Bank Nationalization:
"I do not see any reason to destroy the franchise value or to create the huge legal uncertainties of trying to formally nationalise a bank when it just is not necessary."
He said the authorities had other ways to "exert adequate control to make sure they are doing what is necessary to become healthy and viable."
Bernanke should make certain that he & Lib Congress are on the same page.
