Who is the one who should watch what they say?

In his weekly radio address over the weekend, president Obama reiterated something he has said before. He stated: " The only thing preventing us from passing these bills is the refusal by some in Congress to put country ahead of party. That’s the problem right now. That’s what’s holding this country back."

So, he is accusing some [conservative Republicans] of not making decisions in the best interest of the country because they care more about party than country.  That is a pretty scandalous statement. He is accusing some in congress of being unpatriotic.

When Governor Rick Perry got into the GOP race for the nomination for president, he said that for Ben Bernanke to increase the money supply again for political reasons just before the election would be almost treasonous.

On the Sunday talk shows you only heard about Perry's statement but not about Obama's.  Boy that's surprising.   I am not condoning what Perry said, but let's get this straight.  Perry's statement with the qualifying adjective, I submit, was not as offensive as Barack Obama's statement, without any qualifier.  Rick Perry did not call Ben Bernanke a traitor or even his policies treasonous.  The word almost before his bad choice of description means something.  If Mr. X went to the store last night and there was a holdup where Mr. X almost got shot, we might hear the Sunday talk show hosts saying, 'isn't it sad that Mr. X got shot last night.'


President Obama said that Governor Perry should watch what he says.    Well Mr president, with your direct accusations against some Republicans, I think you should follow your own admonition to Governor Perry.      Watch your mouth!
