Business Insider ^ | 8/15/11 | Joe Weisenthal & Zeke Miller

Posted on 08/15/2011 10:25:31 PM PDT by Nachum

The politicization of monetary policy being taken to a brand new level. ThinkProgress reports: 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 history is almost treasonous in my opinion.” Treason is a capital offense. The remark appeared to be in response to a question from an attendee at the event, but it does not seem to be off the

Swwwoooooonnnnnn. Goodness gracious!

The other Republican nominees are practically hugging and kissing the Obama regime. Thank goodness for El Presidente Ricardo Fox for showing mucho gusto courage.

Indeed, this is kind of like dropping 4 aces in the second hand of an all night game.

Is it too early to go all in ? Not for you and me but I doubt ANY of the rest of the candidates will pick up on this.

Pretty wild.

Perry’s right and the voters know it, and it’s fun to watch the media get their collective panties all aflutter about it. The same media that yawns when dems call TEA partiers terrorists.

The Zionist bankster cartel has him say this stuff for show. Perry will be doing keg stands with Bernanke at Bohemian Grove with the rest of the illuminati this year... as usual.

Expect the Regime to come out tomorrow and blame Perry for being responsible for tanking the economy.

I'm not unfamiliar with the monetary theory that stands behind policy. If there's one "central dogma" that unites all schools on monetary policy, it's the assurance that monetary populism always means more inflation. The central bank, so we're assured, is necessary to fend off populists who are necessarily inflationists.

Now, we have populists that are angry because the central bank has inflated too much! No wonder the monetary authorities are confused.

RP certainly got my attention.

I still haven’t gotten over Alan Greenspan saying, “the US would always be able to pay our debts, all we have to do is print more money”. This statement goes against everything I believe in. Crazy talk. Greenspan must be have dementia.

Just more jive talking from Perry. Somebody said Perry is talking his language. Pfffffffffff! Yeah. Rick Perry is real good at that... talking. He'll say WHATEVER he thinks you want to hear. He's a deceitful little RINO.

Gov. Perry is pandering to the Paulites.

Some politicians will say anything, but when it comes to, for example, defending the border, they let it die on the order paper.

I wonder if God will wipe him up with the floor. Liars are an abomination to God, especially ones that use Him for political gain. God is NOT mocked by phony “prophets”. I think at back problem is just a warning of grace period.

I’m not talking about America. I’m talking about the lying RINO Rick Perry. His little back problem is nothing. God is very patient, he gives a space of grace, but I wouldn’t want to be in God’s wrath.
