Rick Perry is wasting no time resorting to violent rhetoric

Rick Perry is wasting no time resorting to violent rhetoric in his campaign for President. While speaking to a crowd in Iowa – Perry weighed in on the Federal Reserve – and Chairman Ben Bernanke’s monetary policy saying, “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.” Perry went on to say, “Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treasonous in my opinion.”

Of course – people can be put to death if convicted of treason. So here we have a guy running for President who just hinted at dragging the Federal Reserve Chairman down to Texas to be executed. Economist Nouriel Roubini tweeted about the comment saying, “The Texan thug is making murder threats on the Fed Chairman.” Looks like Rick Perry is really running for America's executioner-in-chief, and he's already there as the Governor who has killed more prisoners - at least one who was innocent - than any other Governor in history.

Rick Perry apparently loves killing people as much as he loves threatening it.
