Video: Perry implodes; Update: Campaign is over, says top fundraiser
HotAir ^ | Wednesday November 9, 2011

Posted on 11/09/2011 8:00:06 PM PST by Bigtigermike

Via Business Insider. A few choice quotes. Larry Sabato:

To my memory, Perry’s forgetfulness is the most devastating moment of any modern primary debate.

Rich Lowry:

That might be the most uncomfortable moment I’ve ever witnessed in presidential politics.

[.....]

Update: CNN, live in the spin room: “I’m sure glad I had my boots on because I sure stepped in it out there.”

Update: WaPo’s Aaron Blake tweets: “Top Perry fundraiser to me: ‘Perry campaign is over. Time for him to go home and refocus on being Gov of TX.’”

Perry’s campaign has been one facepalm moment after another. There’s a certain devoted FReeper gal, however, that will post some stories early tomorrow morning and tell us why we’re all wrong.

Even I feel bad about it ending that way and I’ve made no secret of my feelings about Rick Perry’s record.

That said, this campaign is far bigger than Rick Perry, so we can’t be giving out mulligans during Perry pity party.

Can you imagine how much ammo Perry has provided for any opponents negative campaign ad.

And the liberal media thought Cain would be the easiest target to take out. I saw it. And Perry just moved to the top of the Liberal “Take out A GOP Candidate” List.

They have just smelled more blood in the water, with Perry, than they ever smelled with Cain. Perry should go back to Texas to administer the In state Tuition Program for illegals. He’s finished.

more like complete vaporlock...

I feel sorry for Perry, because he’s unquestionably a good man and a solid conservative on most issues. He was doing much better tonight - until “the moment”.

Look,we need to win this election and having every independent or frustrated Democrat look at your candidate and think “OMG, it’s George W Bush all over again” is not helpful. I really liked Bush and I like Perry (just not as Presiden).

I said it on the live thread - this clip is what will live on Youtube, not what he said before or after. He’s done.

I don’t think forgiving him is the issue here. This is the nomination for the next president, not some high school talent show.

It’s Drudge headline material. Over 100 million will be watching those 53 seconds in the next 24 to 48 hours.

I don’t think Rick makes it past Iowa.

On the one issued that is very near to his heart - energy. He’s spoke of it many times as being key. He mentioned three things - energy was a given for him - so I can see how he forgot it. I can’t recall is only allowed for miss hillary.

“That might be the most uncomfortable moment I’ve ever witnessed in presidential politics.”

I don’t know if I’d go that far. Methinks Mr. Lowry has never seen Ford’s 1976 quip about Poland not being under Soviet domination...

There will be more up later, I’m sure, but so fare I have found it in part, on Youtube. Under each video is a link to the next part. This is part one:

“energy was a given for him - so I can see how he forgot it.”

I watched the train wreck just now and was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, etc. Couldn’t come up with anything. You may be right though. Still - doesn’t look good. Too bad it couldn’t have been Romney looking like the deer in the headlights.

Perry was ona roll tonight. He looked much better, and he got too excited about what he was GOING to say next and was already past it before his mouth could catch up with his thoughts.
Watching what happened was awful. And I honestly wish it hadn’t happened. Not that way.

I forgive Perry, but I also now firmly believe and know that he is not able to stand on the same stage with those running to become the GOP nominee.

This is a contest for the highest office in the land. There is just no room for THAT sort of goof up.

Six weeks. In under nine weeks the first votes are cast. For his/your sake, you need to be correct. By itself, it would not have hurt him. Coupled with the drugged/drunk look and other bombs, it will make devastating ads - much as what was used on Dole.

Dunno what the deal is as I missed the debate, but from what I’ve heard happened and seen previously, Perry has proven he cannot defeat Obama in a debate and would likely embarrass himself.

I personally don’t believe there is any further need to consider his candidacy, though I wasn’t considering it after he said I have no heart.

That clip is going to be played and replayed on every major news outlet and on the web. There’s no way that will just fade away.
