Joe Scarborough says "I just donít see Rick Perry surviving past March"
The Daily Caller ^ | 09/13 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 09/13/2011 8:41:18 AM PDT by martosko

“[A]fter listening to him talk last night in detail, I do not know how many levels there are to Rick Perry,” Scarborough said. “But I do know this … The phrase ‘Ponzi scheme’ is not Rick Perry’s biggest problem.

“The word that he’s going to have to wrestle with during Republican primaries, let alone a general election, is the word ‘unconstitutional,’ because when you call Social Security … unconstitutional … this is about as funny as anything I’ve heard on ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm.’”

He sounds more like a democrat every day...and he (and Michelle Bachmann) needs to get out his Constitution and read it again.

Neither Social Security nor Medicare are authorized by the Constitution.

Joe Scarborough needs to show us where Perry said it was unconstitutional. Perry acknowledged the scotus ruling that it was constitutional.

MSLSD

Why do we accept what any talking head on TV says when they burp out a segment of random thoughts floating around inside their heads

These self-anointed ones talk before thinking and it`s accepted as wisdom ?

Uhh, nope.

LOL I thought the same thing. Perry is not my choice, but he’s saying what Americans want to hear. Joe is foolish.

Scarborough talks like that because he wants to get in Mika’s knickers.

Am I missing some salient facts or had Joe missed his cup of joe ?

The ruling was about SS being a tax ONLY.

Allow the USSC to rule on whether the Federal Govt. can create and run a national pensions plan.

Answer: 100% Un-Constitutional.

“Neither Social Security nor Medicare are authorized by the Constitution.”

Get with the program, this is the 21st Century, after all. Even within the Republican Party, only a small fraction think like that these days. Individuals can’t be expected to take care of themselves. It’s for the greater good, don’t you know. [Furthermore, it’s a sad commentary that I have to add a sarcasm tag to this post.]

I didn’t watch the debate. I think Perry will be the nominee, and the next President.

That said, I see in the news coverage that many are saying that Perry could have been stronger. He was definitely the target of all, as the frontrunner, but the news coverage is saying that he could have been stronger?

Comments anyone?

‘Joe’ is just a useless flake, a faux foil for the radical Left on the worst cable channel.

I think that Perry is the most likely candidate to win the primary, but that is just my guess.

However, I think that to say Perry will drop out before March is ignorant. Perry will know that he has the Texas primary delegates pretty much in the bag, so even if he were behind, he would have no rational reason to drop out until after the Texas March primaries.

That’s kind of strange. I am starting to like Rick Perry more and more!

If you had watched the debate, you would see that Perry has some fundamental problems. They really went after him on the HPV issue and immigration.

Not a good night for the Guv at all.

Of course it’s unconstitutional but the SCOTUS ruled it was and Perry acknowledged that.

In other words, the left—little Joey included—see Perry as a Grade A threat to their boy in the White House, so all of the media guns will take aim at Perry, hoping to destroy his candidacy.

There’s a lot of things we think are unconstitutional but if the SCOTUS rules that it is constitutional then that’s the law of the land. Perry never said it “was” unconstitutional because it was ruled on.
