Second Appointment in Two Days: Bush Appoints Bernanke to Supreme Court Too

Second Appointment in Two Days: Bush Appoints Bernanke to Supreme Court Too

October 25, 2005

DATELINE WASHINGTON: Noting that the stock market went up 170 points yesterday after he appointed Ben Bernanke as the new Fed Chairman, President Bush today took the unprecedented step of appointing Ben Bernanke to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court too,

At a White House press conference, with Bernanke, who appeared to be wearing the same suit, standing at his side, the President said “I believe that when something is working, you should stick with it. I plan to appoint Ben Bernanke to every vacant senior position until our approval ratings get back above 50%. When pressed for a timetable for Ben’s next appointment, the President said he wouldn’t be pinned down. “It could be a matter of days,” he said, “but it all depends on when the special prosecutor finishes his work.”
