Snider: Janet Yellen uses Fed failures to expand the Fed's mandate
"On an economic whirlwind, [Yellen's] goal over the past few months has been to convince anyone and everyone that the economy has nearly healed, the trajectory thus brightened enough to allow the Fed to gracefully exit and take full credit for it.
