    Perry continues to bash Social Security in his book.

    [Perry] devotes an entire chapter [in his book] to lambasting the Supreme Court, anticipating that the justices one day issue a ruling forcing nationwide gay marriage on the country. As a check on judicial power, he proposes allowing Congress to override the high court with a two-thirds vote in both the House and Senate.

    ...While skewering [Social Security] might help Perry with tea party supporters, it could cost him with elderly voters in Florida and other important states were he to win the nomination, said GOP strategist Ford O'Connell.

    "This year, Republicans believe that losing the election means losing the country," said Alex Castellanos, a Republican strategist who has worked for Perry opponents but is now unaligned.

    "Any candidate who displays general election weakness, because his radical views scared seniors, independents, or soccer moms, would be disqualified in the GOP nomination process. A vote for such a candidate in a primary would be seen as a vote for Obama in the general."

    Don't worry about Perry; his extremism will do him in. His message may wear well with Texas and a few southern states and that will be it. This career politician is really out of touch.

    +1. Sarah Palin took some shots at perry in her speech today regarding his status as a career politician and history of corporate cronyism. When Perry's record gets more scrutiny, he is toast. Just be aware that perry is ruthless and will do and say anything to get elected. Anything is possible with this clown.

    I can hardly wait for the day Perry pays for gay sex, and the male prostitute secretly records the event and posts it all over the internet.

    The only reasons why I can't stand Perry is because he's a fake conservative. The guy literally supported the Texas version of the "dream act" and he opposed SB1070 and he's just a big government conservative who is interested in exerting social conservatism with only "talk" of fiscal conservatism. He's going to be another Bush.

    And no, he won't touch social security or medicare...he just talks about it to win over true fiscal conservatives.

    If he were serious about it he would be supporting Paul Ryan who at least has a plan to save medicare.

    Talking about him as "extreme" on fiscal issues is ridiculous. The guy is simply not conservative enough on fiscal issues (and an extreme social conservative at the same time, which makes him even more horrible of a candidate).

    Fixed it for you.


    Nope, comments like this only show how ignorant you are, not clever.

    With any luck, Perry's goose will get cooked sooner rather than later and he will just go away

    I'm holding out that Huntsman will surge once Americans start learning more about him, and when he does that is when Romney really needs to be worried.
