Bob Corker, Economic Charlatan

Corker is widely regarded as the GOP’s canny financial wizard in the Senate, someone who knows what he’s talking about when it comes to the economy.

Sudeep Reddy at the WSJ:

In meetings with lawmakers, [Ben Bernanke] has avoided specifics so as not to step on political terrain, leaving his views open to interpretation.

“He’s never defined what short-term stimulus is to me,” said Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.), who met with Mr. Bernanke last month. “I’m going to take that to mean keeping our tax rates where they are for at least a couple of years while we wrestle with the tremendous spending issues.”

What a tool.
