He messed with Texas!

He messed with Texas!


“If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we — we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous — or treasonous in my opinion.”

-- Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Aug. 15, 2011

WASHINGTON — The Federal Reserve opened a new chapter Thursday in its efforts to stimulate the economy, saying that it intends to buy large quantities of mortgage bonds, and potentially other assets, until the job market improves substantially...

...“The weak job market should concern every American,” the Fed’s chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, said at a news conference. The goal of the new policies, he added, “is to quicken the recovery, to help the economy begin to grow quickly enough to generate new jobs.”

Finally, someone in Washington who gets it -- that jobs are much, much more important than deficit reduction.

Meanwhile, none dare call it treason. Because it;s not.

It's the weekend, so any and all subjects are on the table.
