Rick Perry's Solution for Improving his Debate Performances: Skip 'em!
Governor Perry is committing to just one of the next three GOP debates.
Perry hinted at his frustration with the debates earlier this week when he told Fox News that participating in them was a “mistake.”
“These debates are set up for nothing more than to tear down the candidates,” Perry said. “…All they’re interested in is stirring it up between the candidates.”
Perry knows the debate format is not his best venue. He recently made light of his shaky performances in a speech to the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition.
“We are not called to be perfect,” Perry said when he addressed the gathering of social conservatives last weekend. “If any of you have watched my debate performances over the last three or four times, you know I am not perfect.”
I give him props for having some self-awareness. Imagine if our current President had as much.
Perry supporters! (I know we still have some) What do you think? Good idea? Or bad idea?)
