    But maybe Waldmann is correct that Santelli (and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal) are helping Obama by moderation mid term inflation expectations upwards in that mid term expectations would be lower if not for Santelli’s rants.

    More like they’re helping the Fed taper ahead of schedule.
