Presidentiality: Treason?

  • Aired: 09/12/2011
  • 02:50
  • Rating: NR
Throughout history, humans have reserved special disdain for traitors: Brutus, Cassius, and Judas, just to name a few. In fact, "treason" is the only crime mentioned specifically in the U.S. Constitution. Now, Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry has suggested a new entry in the annals of treachery: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
