No, I don’t think he was drunk. I think he was trying too hard to be entertaining and likeable.
I’m not sure where all you have seen this; I do realize the excerpts are viral now, but the smear campaign on Governor Perry today (Tuesday) have been formulating, prominent, and building on the television shows even today.
I believe it helps those who support Governor Perry or those who do not know him to see this OVERALL dynamic speech.
I’m pretty sure many Perry supporters have not seen this video yet.
I’m also sure those who support Governor Perry will appreciate having confirmation that these smears are based on nothing more than 2 to 3 different minutes pulled from a 25 minutes speech that was otherwise a fantastic speech and one that the evangelical conservative crowd accepted well and with a standing ovation.
I agree though with your assessment that he was trying to be entertaining in those spots the excerpts are being taken from.
Perhaps a little comedic drama coaching time with Alec Baldwin should be in the works for Governor Perry? LOL
