Governor Rick Perry fires back at critics – how will his comments effect his campaign?

Presidential candidate Rick Perry hit the campaign trail again yesterday,  standing firm on his Bernanke "treasonous" comments when he was asked about the Federal Reserve at a political breakfast.

"An agency of government like the Federal Reserve, they should open their books up, they should be transparent so that the people of the United States know what they're doing," Perry said. "Until they do that, I think there will continue to be questions about their activity and what their true goal is for the United States."

Perry also took a swing at climate science and criticized regulations to curb greenhouse gases, an argument he's long made from Austin.

Today on American Morning, Kate Zernike, New York Times national correspondent, and Will Cain, CNN contributor, join Carol Costello to discuss Perry's campaign and to weigh in on how people are reacting to his comments.
