Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been on the receiving end of a ton of criticism for his self-described "oops" moment when, during a presidential debate last week, he forgot the third federal department he wants to kill. His 53 second brain freeze has made him the star of late night comedy.
But he's not the only one who apparently suffers from memory loss, and conservative Gary Bauer, himself a former presidential candidate, has just produced a video documenting several of President Obama's wandering speeches. [Check out our editorial cartoons on President Obama.]
It's full of a lot of "ums," and presidential teleprompter errors that have sometimes had the president tongue-tied.
Bauer, chair of the Campaign for Working Families, kept his video to the Perry-length of 53 seconds. It starts showing a picture of Perry over the words, "You've heard about the 53 seconds that supposedly ended a presidential campaign," followed by another screen showing the president over the line, "How about the 53 seconds that should end a presidency?" [See a slide show of 10 reasons Obama should be re-elected.]
Said Bauer, also president of American Values: "53 seconds of silence by a Republican is better than 53 seconds of blather from Barack Obama."
Watch the video below:

The left in America deifies Obama like the North Koreans deify Kim il Sung or Kim Jong Il. You can’t reason with them. Anything Obama does that makes him look human they bury.

Not newsworthy. We already knew the kenyan was a f***ing egotistical idiot! Why else would he need teleprompters to address third graders?
