What goes round comes round. Invited to respond, Romney agreed that Bernanke's policy is wrongheaded and didn't call out Perry for smearing Bernanke's motives and patriotism. And then, shockingly, the T-word was turned on Perry by the guy who's supposed to be the sane man in the asylum. On immigration, Perry in response to Santorum said it was not feasible to build a fence along the entire U.S.-Mexico border. He then delivered his own nostrums for "securing" the border - 4500 boots on the ground, air surveillance, etc. Then, Huntsman turned around and declared sententiously that for Perry to say that we can't secure the border was "near treasonous." (Never mind that Perry didn't say you can't secure the whole border; he said you can't fence the whole thing. And he lacked the verbal quickness to make that point himself.)
Treasonous! GOP culture makes Stalinists of them all. Disagreement with their favored policies -- tactics even -- is treason.
As a crowning irony, the GOP field managed for a season to make Perry seem like the humane guy in the room -- unwilling to fence the whole border, or to deny the children of illegal immigrants in-state college tuition.
Update, 10:39: I just found a quasi-debate transcript, and it turns out that my memory actually softened Huntsman's comment (probably because I've been favorably disposed toward him). He didn't say near treasonous --he said treasonous:
Huntsman: For Rick to say we can’t secure the border is a treasonous comment. We need fences and technology. When I am elected I will work with the border governors to secure the border.
