I was not able to watch all of last night’s debate, but I did catch some of it now that it is online.  I agree with Jeff Angelo’s and Kevin Hall’s assessment of Texas Governor Rick Perry’s debate performance.  The moment captured on video below will forever enter the halls of political misfortune and horrible debate performances.

 

That was painful.  Stick a fork in him, he’s done.  Three things, three things he needed to remember from his own plan.  If he can not remember the three departments that he would shut down if elected President, as I said last night, he didn’t do anything to help himself overcome the “he’s not very intelligent” narrative.

Governor Perry vows to stay in the race, but he really needed a solid debate performance to help revive his campaign.  He didn’t get it.

  1. A lot of a modern President’s life is conducted in out in public arenas, with lights blazing, cameras clicking, and microphones on. You might be an administrative house-on-fire behind the scenes, but the ability to think quickly and speak well is crucial. I’m disappointed in Perry. 

  2. I think it is easy to loose your thoughts when the pressure is on. I don’t think Perry is stupid because it happened to him.

    (I wasn’t going to vote for him in the caucus anyway.)

    1. I’m not a fan of Perry, but I actually kind of feel sorry for him.  So many are willing to give Cain a free pass, but waste no chance at crucifying Perry.  The way I see it, there’s nothing wrong with being gaffe-prone or lacking in debate skills.  However, you probably shouldn’t be trying something in public that you’re not good at.  For instance, if I go on national TV and try to do a pirouette or an entrechat, I’d only get laughed at.  🙂
