Views

Jamie McFadden at Frum Forum has got more on why Rick Perry’s reiterating that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme could spell trouble for him.

McFadden also makes this point: “Perhaps not since George McGovern’s annihilation at the hands of Richard Nixon in 1972 has a candidate’s Primary base been so alienated from the center of American political thought as the Tea Party is today.”

There were signs today that Perry recognizes the trouble he’s in on this issue.

Stay tuned.
