No description is needed because Perry self-immolates within the first tn seconds of the video.
bump de bump.
Perry self-immolates within the first ten seconds of the video.
In his last gubernatorial run, Perry promised the Texas voters that if they re-elected him, that he wouldn’t run for higher office.
Looks like he’s determined to keep that promise...
And the MSM thought Cain was gonna be an easy pick.
The sharks will now turn their attention to Perry’s fresh blood in the water. Perry’s finished.
Is Perry out there simply to make the rest of the candidates look better?
The expression on Ron Paul’s face is priceless as he watches Rick fall apart.
Buh-Bye Rick Perry.
I seriously had high hopes for the guy when he got in the race. Then that first debate happened!
With regard to public speaking, the guy makes GW Bush look like 0bama by comparison. ROFL!
Awww...I feel sorry for Perry, he is really a good man. But does not have the brain power to be the president. It is too bad he did not seal his poor grades like Obamao has done.
They tried to warn him about the effects of Gardasil but he wouldn’t listen. Sigh.
Perry makes James Stockdale look good back in the 1992 VP Debate.
As we used to say in the Army: He stepped on it.
Rick Perry was never a serious candidate.
I’m surprised that he has carried out the charade this far; he has been in a tail spin since mid september.
Nonsense. I watched the entire debate, and he did a good job. He forgot the name of one government agency for about five minutes. Only showing one minute of a two hour debate is shallow and immature. Shame on you!
If you don’t like his policies, don’t vote for him. I consider not just a debate but a candidate’s policy positions and record. If you don’t like his positions and record, that’s fine. But to judge a person by one minute of a two hour debate, says more about the people doing the judging than the person being judged.
You could hear his contributors moaning all the way from Dallas.
Can anyone imagine this guy as President, going up against the national media in a live news conference?
Send him home, give him a parade, followed by a BBQ. Let him beat on a pinata after the feed.
Enough of this guy.
At this point, all he is doing is giving Aggies a bad name.
I don’t know, Stockdale seemed pretty bad. He pretty much immolated himself as well.
The problem is if he can’t remember which 3 agencies he wants to axe, does he even know why he wants to get rid of them? If he really knew which programs he wants to shut down, he should have been able to think about the results, and then name or at least describe the agency. It is called thinking on your feet.
Imagine the chatter in the White House tonight, and how they would want this fellow as their opponent. Perhaps their only last chance to keep the Presidency. I would imagine that is the scuttlebutt. So expect the smear machine against Herman Cain to kick up a few notches over the next few days, mark my word (the one they DO NOT want to run against).
Maybe it’s time to give GOP candidate Buddy Roemer a chance to debate, most of the others are fading fast, or at least their programs are not catching fire, or else are going down in flames.
“..I watched the entire debate, and he did a good job..”
You and I must not have watched the same debate. If tonite was his only bum performance you might have a talking point, but his debate performances have been in the bottom tier ever since his first debate. Face it, he’s proven he’s not ready for prime time.
At least Greta isn’t skewering Perry tonight for his debate performance. I just read this post from her on Greta Wire at Fox:
“I know everyone in the media especially comedians are going to jump all over the tape from tonights debate where Governor Rick Perry could not remember the 3rd agency he would eliminate if President. I think there are far more substantive criticisms we can make of candidates than a slip up like that. If we are to judge a candidate totally on a slip up (and remember, President Obama said there were 57 or 58 states and others have also made slip ups and yes, I, too have forgotten things and maybe you have, too), we are making a mistake in how we evaluate people for this high office. “
“At this point, all he is doing is giving Aggies a bad name.”
Actually, he is just corroborating the bad name Aggies have had since the 1860s, enhanced by soon becoming the new Vanderbilt of the SEC.
Perry’s gaffe tonight will definitely direct media attention, to some degree, AWAY from the accusations against Herman Cain.
Good Point, I see an all out effort by obummer to help Perry win the GOP nomination.
Perry is our only hope of keeping Romney from winning the nomination.
-Cain is imploding from a sex scandal.
-Newt will never win over evangelicals.
I’m interested in hearing what the Perry-winkles on this website have to say about his debate gaffe tonight. Will they still defend Rick Perry and try to tell us that he should be the GOP nominee who will have to debate the silver-tongued Obama?
I think he has panic attacks at precisely the wrong moment.
Public speaking is just like basketball...
Practice, practice, practice
Until the press conference with all the accusers.
you forgot the /joking addendum at the end of your post!!
Hey, at least they didn’t drop down to the minors like the Huskers. Gotta give them credit.
It looks like Perry is sexually harassing Cain.
(And Herman’s not happy)
In Cain you have the complete opposite of Perry on illegal immigration which is one reason I'm supporting him. I think Cain is good on economic issues, and I especially like his views on stopping illegal immigration, which has sadly been unheard of when it comes to Presidential front runners. Let's elect a guy who's right on all the major issues, including one of the most ignored and serious problems facing the nation.
Hey! Lay off the Commodores!
See #32... caption? ;-)
The MSM doesn’t have to go after Perry, he can do that all on his own.
I’m not a big Perry fan, but hell everybody has brain farts from time to time. I don’t necessarily hold it against him, there’s so many agencies I can see why he’d get confused just having to pick 3.
And in the spirit of the now-famous October tweeted words between one Perry Campaign official in Arizona to another Perry Campaign staffer in Iowa just prior to the mud bomb being dropped on poor Herman over groundless harrassment allegations--showing some kind of forehand knowledge by at least some in the Perry camp over the work of "oppos", their opposition research time--when this Governor Perry CNBC debate brain fart thing "viralizes" and is seen by MILLIONS of Americans on YouTube or on the TV, "it is not going to be pretty." (sic)
Most awkward debate moment since James Stockdale. My skin was crawling. I have not been a fan or supporter, but feel bad for him; that was humiliating. He’s done.
So you're saying we should just accept that Romney will be the nominee?
