[1. He didnt do to well in his first two debates. Will he/can he improve?]
No doubt he will improve.
[2. Theres no doubt that his views on SS, while accurate, will be used against him by the Rats. Theyre going to pound him relentlessly with this. If he loses the senior vote over this, hes in trouble.]
The Democrats have admitted that Social Security needs to be reformed. This is no longer a big secret. The debate will be on how to fix it, not whether it needs to be fixed or not.
[3. I have concerns that many independents view him as extreme (not only on the SS issue but also on his religious views) and the Dems are going to take advantage of this, should Perry be our nominee.]
If the Democrats bring religion in as an election issue, Perry throws Reverend Wright up on screeen. Who would you rather have running the country Mr. “God Damn America” or a traditional Christian? Then he can teach Americans about black liberation theology. Obama’s actions over the last 3 years will be so much more clear after that lesson.
My mother who is a Republican, but definitely moderate if not slightly left-wing, likes Perry.
Simply brilliant! That is precisely the way it will work.
