DEBATE VIDEO: PERRY KICKS ROMNEY’S BUTT ON SOCIAL SECURITY

Romney’s getting hammered by Perry in the polls, so he’s reverting to a slimy tactic usually deployed only by Democrats—demagoguing Social Security. Tonight Perry responded by shoving it up his down his throat: Rather than trying to scare seniors like you’re doing … it’s time to have a legitimate conversation in this country about how to fix that program.
