President Obama said GOP presidential hopeful Rick Perry has "to be a little more careful" with his rhetoric and says he'll cut the Texas governor some slack for suggesting the Federal Reserve is almost "treasonous."
In an interview with CNN airing tonight, Obama was asked if he thought Perry's comments during an Iowa event on Monday night were disrespectful.
"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."
