Rick Perry Says Mistake Will Not End His Campaign

Perry: Debate gaffe won't break my campaign

By
    Corbett B. Daly

Rick Perry brushed off a gaffe from Wednesday's debate, saying one mistake may in fact humanize him and certainly will not tank his campaign the way some strategists are predicting.

On Wednesday night in Michigan, Perry said he would cut three agencies from the federal government but could only name two of them.

"Commerce, Education and the - what's the third one there? Let's see," Perry said before his rivals volunteered the Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates pollution and is very unpopular with conservatives.

Asked about the slip-up, Perry acknowledged on CBS' "The Early Show" that he made a mistake.

"I stepped in it is what my wife would have said," Perry said.

Ouch. Embarrassing, but another bad performance in a debate is nothing new for him. Watch the second video, it's only a minute and a half. Total train wreck, the moderators can't even believe it.

RP has got to be on eof the most untelegenic candidates I've ever seen.
"Pushing people forward simply because of their colour, irrespective of merit, would be most unfortunate and would of course lead to disaster. It would mean that Rhodesia would then develop into a kind of banana republic where the country would in no time be bankrupt."

Yeah, even though the focus was on Perry I thought Paul looked awful there.

Both men are smarter than you, greer. Both men are also much more successful than you will likely ever be.

Perry is toast.....not to mention he is a Democrat in Conservative Clothing. The other Dept he was going to cut was Energy. Commerce, Education, and Energy.
