TX Gov. Rick Perry isn’t ready for primetime and he’s certainly not ready to be the next president.
Bloomberg reports the Lone Star governor while campaigning in Iowa, said it would be “treasonous” if Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke agreed to increase stimulus spending before the 2012 election.
“If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what you would do with him. We would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in is almost treacherous, or treasonous in my opinion.”
The Texas governor’s statement suggests he thinks Bernanke should be put to death, because in the U.S., treason is a capital offense.
Now I know Texans love the death penalty. Texas executes more prisoners than all other states combined but, if Perry actually believes Bernanke should be sent to the State Penitentiary in Huntsville, TX for execution, then this salad tossing Hee Haw needs to go back to the ranch, ASAP.
