Rick Perry 53 Seconds of Oops

I didn't see the debate, but this was plastered all over the news when I woke up this morning. And yeah, it looks really bad.

I really don't know much about his past, but noticed there are quite a few Youtube videos of him speaking supposedly while intoxicated.

This could be complete nonsense, of course, but I could see how someone could draw that conclusion.

Lol, yeah I guess so. :) During a presidential debate is the wrong time to have a brain-fart.

No teleprompter.

Dang... is that bad? Lol

These idiots make you not want to vote... :( Oh the quality of our candidates...

I will only cast a vote for Paul or Cain, if neither of them is nominated I will "throw my vote away" on whoever the Libertarian candidate is.

I watched last nights debate and personally felt uncomfortable for Perry when this happened. We all have these moments and I'm positive many people watching felt for Perry, if only a little. That said, he is seeking nomination which if however unlikely, success would bring him to at least 3 debates with Obama. Poor debate performance (as Perry said is his weak spot) I believe is enough for him to lose a lot of GOP support --- nothing new with that though since he's continued to lose GOB support after horrible performances.

I've put my support behind Gingrich from the start and happy to see his popularity slowly moving up. Among many other things, I'd love to see the guy in a 1-1 debate with Obama. My distant second would be Romney. Cain, while I like his personality is slow to respond to in depth questions assuming he has an plan/idea or understanding of them. Some better articulation of the 9-9-9 plan may help... but than again, tax reform isn't the answer to everything.

On a side, I really like the respect these candidates are showing for each other in front of the camera. If only to avoid their own skeletons... its a show of unity among the party with one ultimate goal in mind...

Perry's slip was embarassing, but he should get a break. This can happen to almost anyone.

On a different note, I saw this article on BBC. So far, the economy, taxes and cuts have received a lot of attention in the debates, but there are other critical issues too. I agree with the writer of this articles, these questions will test the candidates. I would love to know what opinion Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich have on these issues.
