Ron Paul: Perry made even ‘me look like a moderate’

Kai Ryssdal Aug 18, 2011

This final note today. Ron Paul made a funny about the Republican presidential field today. Remember the other day we noted Texas governor Rick Perry’s displeasure with what the Federal Reserve’s doing about interest rates? Said printing more money between now and Election Day for political purposes would be “treasonous.”

Well, fellow GOP hopeful Ron Paul, the guy who wants us back on the gold standard and whose book is called End the Fed, said today Perry’s remarks make him look like a moderate.

Thought that was funny.
