Liberal Hyberbol

Think Progress has cause an histaria of a huge magnitude over a minor, razor thin assertion that Perry was suggesting "violent" in response to Benny Bernanke, that the media is calling over the top.

Think Progress:

Texas Governor Rick Perry, who entered the presidential campaign on Saturday, appeared to suggest a violent response would be warranted should Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke “print more money” between now and the election. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treasonous in my opinion.” Treason is a capital offense.
1. Talking Points Memo suggest this. "Perry's ruminations about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's "treasonous" behavior."
2. Washington Post suggest this. "He was referring to remarks he made Monday night in Iowa that Bernanke would be committing a “treasonous” act"
3. NYU economics professor Nouriel Roubini tweeted of Perry's comments: "Perry's Remarks on Bernanke are criminal. This Texan thug is making murder threats on the Fed Chairman."

4. "Rick Perry Threatens Ben Bernanke" from the Economic Policy Journal

5. Anyways, you get the point.

I mean, come on was it this over the top to the point of calling it (and mis-quoting it) Murder threats, appeared to suggest violent response , or to quote it as "committing a treasonous act"?
Or to say "BUT WE WOULD TREAT HIM PRETTY UGLY" as a violent threat

Just a few quotes from the left with in the last 4 years, or so, of Bush's Presidency:

-“But Bush committing treason in a time of was by outing Valerie Plame and her cover Brewster -Jennings & Associates is OK I suppose.”
-"President Bush committed political treason today"-Move On
-America yawns as President Bush committed treason- Huffington Post
-Bush committed treason, outed Valerie Plame
-George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, was indicted Monday on charges of high treason. The charges, filed by Attorney General Russ Feingold (which was tossed out)- NY Times
-Krugman saying the Bushies committed treason- Free Republic
-Obama & Admin: "Officials to Keep 'Boot on Neck' of BP"
-Barack Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,"

A Governor Cries 'Treason'

July 14, 2005 - Gov. Jennifer Granholm of Michigan recently called for state Rep. Rick Baxter to be removed from office for a July 7, 2005 Wall Street Journal column he co-authored with Hillsdale professor Gary Wolfram. The commentary cited various publicly available measures of Michigan’s economic activity, while criticizing the governor’s current policy proposals, and it led her to assert, according to the July 11 Detroit News, that writing the column for a national publication was "treasonous to the state of Michigan."

Scary Political Costumes in Frightening Illinois Elections

Oct. 24, 2010 - Democratic Senate hopeful Alexi Giannoulias accused his opponent Mark Kirk of "economic treason" Thursday, for voting against a key tax bill the day after holding a fundraiser with American citizens in China.

At issue was a conference call Kirk held with 12 U.S. citizens working in Beijing last May. Giannoulias noted that the following day, Kirk voted "against closing the tax loophole that rewards corporations for shipping American jobs overseas to countries like China."

"He raises money from corporate executives in Beijing one day, and the next day sold out American jobs to China to return a favor."

Let's not forget the "bring a gun to a knife fight" that Obama said. When the country turns against these cry baby liberals they will crack like eggs. People are getting sick and tired of these liberal drama queens

I'm not a Perry guy, but I agree with him on this, as do most Americans.
