Obama to nominate 3 new Fed governors

New York (CNNMoney.com) - President Obama plans to nominate three new governors to the Federal Reserve on Thursday, according to sources familiar with the matter.

San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank President Janet Yellen is expected to be nominated as vice chairman of the central bank. And the two vacancies on the seven-member board would be filled by Sarah Raskin, the Maryland Commissioner of Financial Regulation, and Peter Diamond, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said last month that the three were under consideration for the board positions.

    They are just part of the Progressive pack of mad dogs. Mr. Obama, The Racist In Chief, just can't resist raping America whenever he gets a chance. And CNN is assisting him.

    By watching CNN this evening it is evident that you have allied yourself with the radicals who are demeaning the state of Arizona. The hysteria with which your Progressive news readers are conducting themselves in their attacks on Arizona will be remembered in November. When the Progressive party is driven out of Washington in January of next year, we turn on CNN next. You can't work with Mr. Obama to rape the American people and not expect anger from the American people.

    Yellin, Raskin and Diamond? Gee, I wonder what ethnicity they all belong to. Could it be the same scheming group of Christ-killers that runs the Federal Reserve and international banking? Where the money goes, the jew always follows.

    Obama not feels it necessary to call riot police to stop senior citizens protesting his policies. What is next? SEIU storm troopers roughing up protesteds? When will the SS be formed?

    I bet all of these three must have records that aren't sealed, hidden or kept away from the American public.

    I'm sure they will all be big donors to the democratic party. Pay backs. Here's an idea. Let's reform the government. Vote 'em in. Vote'em out.

    Eminently suitable reasonable and proper choices and also professionally capable choices.
    The party of no however is sure to want to delay this somehow, along with many others already delayed unreasonably.
