Perry won't apologize for Bernanke comments

Rick Perry, after being asked today about putting Ben Bernanke in the same sentence as "treasonous."

"I am just passionate about the issue and we stand by what we said."

Perry's provoking comments yesterday.

"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 American history is almost treasonous in my opinion."
