Those bashing Ben Bernanke over his inflation record should look at the stats, says Jon Hilsenrath in the WSJ. CPI on Bernanke's 67-month watch has averaged 2.3%, giving him one of the best records of all Fed chairmen. It's lower than Alan Greenspan's 3.1% and Paul Volcker's 6.2%, although the latter did inherit double-digit rates.
