Bruce Bartlett, who served as an adviser to Ronald Reagan and as a Treasury official under George H.W. Bush, called Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry “an idiot” Friday, referencing negative comments the Texas governor made about Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke this week.

While campaigning in Iowa Monday, Perry said it would be “almost treasonous” for Bernanke to print more money between now and the 2012 election. “I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas,” he said.
