If Perry were some how to squeak out the GOP nomination, you can bet that a large portion of the Democratic Party's TV ads would be geared towards seniors and include Perry's statements.
With the Florida Primary coming right after South Carolina, it appears that The Romney camp may use Perry's words and writings if necessary to bolster Romney's strong lead in Florida.
Rick Perry's explosive comments and past writings about Social Security have delighted Mitt Romney supporters and some advisers, who see the Texas governor as having made himself more vulnerable in one very crucial early Republican presidential primary state: Florida.
Some in the Romney camp believe that Perry's recent remark that Social Security is a "ponzi scheme" and a "monstrous lie" will cost him support among seniors in the retiree-heavy Sunshine State, which is very likely to determine the primary winner. If Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann or Perry wins Iowa next winter, followed by a Romney win in New Hampshire and a Perry win in South Carolina, the large and expensive contest in Florida, which comes next on the primary calendar, will either lift Romney above his rival if he wins, or mortally wound him if he loses.
The comments could also be used to bolster what will likely become the former Massachusetts governor's chief argument against Perry, that the Texan is too conservative and too brash to beat President Obama in the general election.
Certainly polls continue to show that most Americans want to retain the benefits they currently receive from the federal government, or if they do not yet receive any, they would like to avoid cutting future payouts.
