Apparently, Romney’s planting the flag as the establishment candidate and the CNN/Tea Party debate is the latest evidence. That means he doesn’t care that the actual primary voters are anti-Big Government.
So to appease the GOP elite, he’s become the crusader for Social Security. It’s a strange choice when even President George W. Bush took an anti-Social Security position.
Now to distance himself from the Tea Party, Romney is on the attack against Gov. Rick Perry who called Social Security a “Ponzi scheme.” Try finding Republican primary voters who disagree with that statement.
