Rick Perry Not Ready For Primetime

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Economic crisis, Economic recovery, Perry, Video

What is with you Texans and your Governors? Jeezus…

Here’s the video…

If the vid doesn’t play…here’s basically what he said…

Texas Governor Rick Perry, who entered the presidential campaign on Saturday, appeared to suggest a violent response would be warranted should Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke “print more money” between now and the election. Speaking just now in Iowa, Perry said, “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.” Treason is a capital offense.

Yes, Ben Bernanke…the guy Bush appointed.

So, is Perry backing down? Of course not. Here’s their official statement…

The Governor was expressing his frustration with the current economic situation and the out of control spending that persists in Washington. Most Americans would agree that spending more money is not the answer to the economic issues facing the country.

Sure, be frustrated. But understand A) how this mess happened and B) how we avoided catastrophic economic downfall due to Bernanke’s so called “treasonous” actions. Perry has no clue.

One thing’s for sure…2012 is going to be absolutely, positively wacky.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, So, Perry’s deeply opposed ro Bernanke’s policies. This is troubling because . . . he said it in a way that could be misconstrued by the professionally offendable as a violent threat?

    What a waste of time.

    Uh, this factoid would be a reason FOR Perry saying what he said. One more time, rinse and repeat: Perry does not care for the Bushies and vice versa. Hello? Anyone home?

    I’m just a politically independent Texan who is really tired of hearing how 99.9% of the talking heads in America proliferating falsehood and myth about my state and its playas…
