Obama Warns Perry to Be 'More Careful'

President Barack Obama chided Texas Gov. Rick Perry  for comments about Ben Bernanke, saying he has "to be a little more careful" with his rhetoric.

Obama suggested that Perry isn't used to being a candidate for the White House in a CNN interview to air tonight, reports USA Today.

"I think that everybody who runs for president, it probably takes them a little bit of time before they start realizing that this isn't like running for governor or running for senator or running for Congress, and you've got to be a little more careful about what you say," Obama said.

"But I'll cut him some slack. He's only been at it for a few days now."

Perry criticized Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke, saying the central bank is almost "treasonous" for printing money and that Bernanke would get an "ugly" reception in Texas.

Perry's swipe at the central bank came Monday night at the end of his second full day of campaigning and has since gone viral. Pundits from both parties have both lauded and criticized him for the remark.
