McCain Would Fire SEC Chair Cox

Republican presidential candidate John McCain, campaigning in Iowa Thursday, is expected to call for the firing of Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Chris Cox.

In his prepared remarks, Sen. McCain (Ariz.), without naming Cox, said the chairman has “betrayed the public’s trust.”

“If I were president today, I would fire him,” McCain will say, according to his prepared remarks.

This is swatting a gnat while a tiger and lion are headed towards you. McCain doesn't have a clue.

This crisis is a Paulson and his lapdog, Bernanke, operation.

Except for his nonsense about short-sellers, Cox has been incompetently benign during this entire crisis. Incompetently benign in a bureaucrat is not a bad thing.
