"Hands of our medicare," and "stop attacking middle class families, Rick Perry" chants were all over when Rick Perry was in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in the morning today.
The reception he received today was well deserved, as he outlined in his book "Fed Up!" that Social Security is a "ponzi scheme," implying that he would eliminate all entitlement program if elected president.

At the event, perry was asked by a kid how old the Earth is, to which Perry responded, "I don't have any idea. I know it's pretty old. So it goes back a long long way. I'm not sure anybody actually knows completely and absolutely how old the Earth is."
Governor Perry is no scientist, he's a career politician. We all understand that. But this exchange, along with many others he's had since jumping to the race, proves that he doesn't even has a brain of a 5th grader when it comes to sciences. Case in point, on Tuesday, Perry said scientists intentionally manipulate data to prove global warming is a threat.
God bless Rick Perry!
