Perry: Bernanke is ‘Almost Treasonous,’ Obama Doesn’t Love America
Rick Perry’s going to deny he was suggesting violence, of course, but yesterday he said about Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke:
“If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I dunno what y’all would do to him in Iowa but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treasonous in my opinion.”
And that wasn’t all. To top off his day of unforced errors, Perry also suggested that President Obama does not love America.
Both of these degrading, moronic statements will go over well with the Tea Party crowd, but if this is how Rick Perry sounds two days after announcing his candidacy, he’s going to lose whatever moderates remain in the GOP. (If there are any left.)
