Ron Paul: Perry Makes Me Look Moderate

Federal Reserve critic Ron Paul has hit out at fellow Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, saying the Texas governor’s views make him “look like a moderate.”

Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Ben Bernanke“I have never once said [Ben] Bernanke has committed treason,” Paul said, referring to comments that Perry made about the Fed chairman.

Perry said on Tuesday that it would be “almost treacherous or treasonous,” if the Fed under Bernanke increased the money supply before next year’s election.

Paul's response: “He realizes that talking about the Fed is good, too. But I tell you what: He makes me look like a moderate."

The sniping between the two Texans threatens to take center stage in the Republican battle for the White House now that the bickering between two Minnesotan candidates, Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Gov. Tim Pawlenty, is over. Their war of words ended in victory for Bachmann when Pawlenty dropped out of the race on Sunday.

Paul has already complained that the media is focusing too much on Perry and not enough on his campaign even though he finished a close second to Bachmann in Saturday’s Iowa Straw Poll.

“What are they afraid of?” he asked on Fox News today. “We’re certainly in the top tier, we showed we did well in Iowa and we have a good organization, we can raise money.”

Actually, Paul has distinguished himself among Republicans in recent years by calling for elimination of the Federal Reserve. But now, Perry and another GOP presidential candidate, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, are in that camp.
