Targeting Perry’s Weak Spot

by Patrick Appel

Marc Thiessen claims that Romney will attack Perry by arguing that "Perry is against the very idea of Social Security and Medicare." Allahpundit looks past the primaries:

If Perry beats Romney for the nomination … then the DNC has a golden attack line handed to them: “Rick Perry is so radical on Medicare that he even scares other Republicans,” punctuated by a shot of Romney attacking Perry on those grounds at one of the debates. It would be devastating. Even if Perry tries to explain it away, the fact that he’d be on the defensive on this issue of all issues would be trouble.

Mataconis nods.
