    So remember back in 2009, when Perry famously seemed to agree with the idea that Texas should secede from the Union:

    Now he is suggesting that the wrong Fed policies by Ben Bernanke would be considered "treasonous" (!) (So much for an independent Fed.)

    I can't believe this guy is considered to be one of the top three candidates for the Republican party. No apologies:

    ""I'm just passionate about the issue, and we stand by what we said," Perry told reporters in Dubuque on Tuesday ..."

    When will the madness end?

    In an interestng twist, most Reds are coming out against Perry and his remarks.

    GWB's former spokesman tweeted:

    Karl Rove told Fox News:
    There has NEVER been anything I have agreed with that Karl Rove has said, until now.

    Rob Blackwell, Washington bureau chief for American Banker, took Perry to task in an opinion piece. An excerpt:


    So somwhere along the way, the people at his stump, let alone Perry himself, were blessed with the trait of self thinking and good judgment...

    ... a trait they seemingly lost when the whole "tea party" thing came into being. Like a blogger at NPR stated...

    Well, this isn't Perry speaking, but on the subject of intemperate statements...

    If that isn't enough to disqualify Cain in the minds of many Americans, I don't know what is.

    What I find troubling is this is the second "impeach Obama" reference from right wingers in the last few days. We all know that in the minds of some, anything that disagrees with Republican policy is an impeachable offense. I hope these comments are not an indication that they're testing the waters....

    (BTW, in researching this, check out this web page I came across. The page title [at the top of your browser] makes it look like it's an NBC News Impeach Obama website. :eek: That's just wrong.)
