Come on let not go overboard. With millions of dollars and supporters Perry is not done. He had a bad day. So will all the candidates from time to time.

Absurd to think he will quit before even 1 vote is cast.

Cain needs to send Perry a thank you note. Not a peep about Cain anywhere on the news today. It is ALL PERRY.....well and Penn State.

Cain got it right. You just have to remember just one thing to answer all questions 999.

What a joke Perry is. What’s worse is that the best the Republicans can seem to come up with is a columnist/radio host with an otherwise impressive technical background.

Well, maybe. Grants made by the Department of Education to Texas institutions of higher education certainly allow them to keep In State tuition rates as low as possible.

What that means is Perry is probably much more adroit in this particular question than the doufous' at Townhall gives him credit ~ and that's for not digging in a little deeper to see exactly what it is about the Department of Education that could leave Perry NOT agreeing with the rest of us.

He knows what's going to happen to that instate tuition when the DOE subsidies are cut off, and they're not small at all ~ $78 billion a year in grants of all sorts. If Texas gets its proportionate share that's about $6.5 billion per annum and them ain't peanut clusters on a jellyroll!

Oh, yeah, and then there are those illegal aliens getting that heavily subsidized instate tuition ~ they will have to do some heavy lifting in a future without DOE. There goes Perry's next Texas gubernatorial election.

It was one of the most embarrassing things I have ever seen from a candidate.

If the allegations dodge Cain into dropping out, I will obviously have to find another person. It was going to reluctantly be Perry.

No more. This was awful.

Just hope Cain keeps it going because otherwise I only have Newt.

the gaffe is profoundly worrisome on substance... symptomatic of a candidate who is trying to memorize points for debate prep, rather than an off-moment for someone trying to expound on well-integrated personal knowledge or a deeply-held philosophy... implies a certain disconnect between what he's saying and what he's actually thought about

Well written. That's precisely why Perry's screw-up bothers me. I thought "throttle the EPA" was one of Perry's core principles.

Texas Media, KLBJ AM - Austin, this morning was still giving Rick the “hall pass” that they have done for the last 12 years.

If you listen to his detractors -— and he has many -— Perry has been imploding since the get-go.

Truth is, this is a weak field of candidates.

Romney is a phony and fraud. Ronpaul is a kook. Newt has more baggage then a Samsonite convention. After a severe meltdown Bachmann can't get any traction. Cain is a neophyte and a masher. Santorum and Huntsman are still looking for their mojo. Good luck, GOP!

Perry’s debate gaffe was a disaster b/c it reinforced his lameness when he needed to show he was better than his previous debate debacles.

He could have handled the gaffe better onstage-—instead all he came up with was “oops.”

His second act-—behaving as if it never happened-—is another indication of his vacuousness......and his fixation on his “moral superiority” over the rest of us peons.

He can well afford to stay in the race——he’s got PACs worth millions-——and b/c his Mexican and Islamic pals are financing him-—and are hellbent on getting him elected.

He may have been forgetful, but I’d wager he knows the correct number of states, yet one Baraq Hussein 0bama is touted as the “smartest person ever to occupy the office”[puke!]
