Here's the Think Progress take:
Texas Governor Rick Perry, who entered the presidential campaign on Saturday, appeared to suggest a violent response would be warranted should Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke “print more money” between now and the election. Speaking just now in Iowa, Perry said, “If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I dunno what y’all would do to him in Iowa but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treasonous in my opinion.” Treason is a capital offense.And they call Ron Paul extreme.
Update: It should also be noted that this guy will say anything to get a vote. While he plays outsider attacking Bernanke, don't forget he is the Bilderberg's candidate.
