Rush Warns GOP Candidates Not To Attack Perry on Social Security

Rush Warns GOP Candidates Not To Attack Perry on Social Security

Rush says that some of these GOP candidates are on the record saying the same thing that Perry said about Social Security, namely Romney, and he is warning them not to attack Perry over it. He also warns Bachmann by name, saying he’s heard she is planning an attack on Perry as well.

He says it isn’t an endorsement, but radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh warned Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s competitors that he will go to bat for Perry if they choose to attack him over his claim that Social Security is a “Ponzi scheme.”

During his Monday show, Limbaugh warned the 2012 Republican field not to use Perry’s remarks against him. He specifically named Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

“I’ve not endorsed anybody and this is not an endorsement” Limbaugh said. “But be very careful if you start attacking Rick Perry on Social Security and the ‘Ponzi scheme.’ There are too many of you out there who have already said that yourselves — Mitt Romney. Mitt, you have already called it a Ponzi scheme. And worse.”

“I’ve got a whole list of people here — media and outside — in politics who have referred to Social Security as a Ponzi scheme,” Limbaugh went on. “And I’m hearing that Michele Bachmann is preparing to lay into Rick Perry about Social Security being a Ponzi scheme. And I would like to warn everybody: Be careful here because you’re pandering to the media.”


Wild Thing's comment....

Well Rush was right again. hahaa Michele Bachmann went into some kind of frenzy rant at Perry, even to the point of her voice going a tad shrill. haha
Michele calm down and speak in your lower voice, it is more effective to say the least.

Too bad but Michele is pretty much gone. She was not presidential material. She too easily panics.
