Romney fibbing about Perry on SS already.
Yeah, Romney, calling SS a “criminal enterprise” in your book is so much better than the term “ponzi scheme.” I hope Perry calls him out on that in the rebuttal.
Perry didn’t say how he would fix SS.
I’m glad they’re letting Tea Party folks ask (at least some) of the questions. Hopefully there aren’t any plants in the audience.
Bingo! One thing I've noticed about Perry is that he speaks up and then shuts up.
Mitt is in full attack mode on Perry
Glad to see so many TP patriots in the audience!!!
And right away Blitzy is letting Romney rebut that answer. I can’t stand the creepy way Mitt stares and smiles right at Perry when Perry is speaking.
To hell with Mitt.
bye bye every one but perry and romney - haha
Woo hoo! In your FACE Romney! Get him, Perry!!!
I corrected the post. Just a slip in memory. As far as Jindal, it’s true I don’t know alot about him but he stood up to the marxist during the oil spill. Can’t be all bad.
He’s not running for president; seems like a solid endorsement to me. It beats the hell out of pawlenty.
It sounded like she sounded like she had memorized her response.
Romney is a jerk.
With a statement like “a border fence will keep us in” isn’t enough?
TP audience doesn’t care for Romney’s attack on Perry’s position on SS.
Perry is not being honest here. W tried to reform SS and many others have pointed out the problems in the past. Over heated rhetoric such as “Ponzie scheme” and “atrocious lie” serve no purpose other than to give the Dims material for non-stop TV ads should Perry be the nominee.
Not smart to write the Dims ads for them.
I guess Mitt is the moderator now
Yep, just like talk radio said. Mitt is trying to nail Perry by lying about him. He is going for broke on that. Ha ha Perry got applause for his rebuttal.
Mittens being Mittens! Get him Rick and get him to shut up!!!!
