Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke expressed concerns Wednesday about the economic recovery during a ceremonial swearing-in for another four-year term.

In brief remarks to staffers, Bernanke said that while the economy is growing, "far too many people remain unemployed, foreclosures continue at record rates and bank credit continues to contract."

Obama reappointed Bush's Federal Reserve Chairman, and stuck with Bush's monetary policy.

Earlier, Obama reappointed Bush's Secretary of Defense, and stuck with Bush's Iraq policy.

Obama ran on ending the Iraq war and reversing Bush's economic policies.

We're still in Iraq, after we "withdraw" we will still have 50,000 troops in permanent bases in Iraq, and we're running Bush style borrower and spend crazy deficits.
