Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Perry: Uniting the Really Far Right and the Really, Really Far Right
Texas Gov. Rick Perry formally launched his presidential campaign in August and quickly shot to the top of national polls, where he continues to dominate.
Maintaining his healthy lead by appealing to the Tea Party, he recently came very close to accusing Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke of treason and has raised new concerns over his previous assertions that Social Security and Medicare were unconstitutional by calling Social Security a Ponzi scheme and a “monstrous lie.”
People For the American Way continued its coverage of the 2012 presidential primaries with a piece by PFAW president Michael Keegan exposing Perry’s cozy ties with the various factions which comprise the Far Right.
