Karl Rove is afraid of a Perry campaign

Two things seem pretty obvious. 1, Karl Rove does not care for Rick Perry, and 2, Rove fears a Perry campaign.

From TPM,
"You don't accuse the chairman of the federal reserve of being a traitor to his country. Of being guilty of treason," Karl Rove told Fox News Tuesday. "And, suggesting that we treat him pretty ugly in Texas. You know, that is not, again a presidential statement."
In case you missed it, in response to a question before a crowd in Iowa yesterday, Perry said that for The Fed Chairman to initiate a third round of quantitative easing (increasing the cash supply by the Fed purchasing T Bill) would be "almost treasonous" and appeared to threaten the health and safty of the chairman should he visit Texas after having done so.

Perhaps the funniest thing about Rove's comments, is the fact that he was the first to criticize Perry on Fox News for his outrageous remarks and his doing so is actually controversial.
