BOSTON (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is suggesting to conservatives in rival Mitt Romney's home state that the former Massachusetts governor sounds like a liberal.
A day after Perry and Romney clashed at a GOP presidential debate, Perry appeared Tuesday night at a dinner hosted by the conservative think tank Bay State. The setting was just a mile from Romney's campaign headquarters in Boston.
Perry says that "other candidates" have used words like "fraud" in talking about Social Security and have compared it to a criminal enterprise. That kind of language appears in a book by Romney. But now, Perry says, those candidates are changing their tune and, he adds, starting to sound like liberals.
