This guy may be good for Texas, but he’d be a disaster for America around the world.

It’s one thing when Tea Party politicians in the House don’t understand economics. But when you have presidential candidates like Rick Perry running around saying Ben Bernanke would be considered “treasonous” for doing his job, while simultaneously touting that his punishment in Texas would be “ugly,” you’ve landed in the Jurassic Park of political knuckle-dragging.

“If this guy prints more money between now and the election,” Perry said, “I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we — we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous — or treasonous in my opinion.” – ABC News
