Governor Rick Perry: “Oops”

November 10, 2011

“Oops.” – Texas Governor Rick Perry, 11/09/11

In his campaign to destroy America, Texas governor Rick Perry ran into a small roadblock during the Republican presidential debate last night in Michigan when he said that once elected president, he’d eliminate three federal agencies. The small roadblock was that he couldn’t remember the three agencies.

Talking about his flat tax plan (a plan which is grossly unfair to the nation’s poor and middle class) as being a plan that Americans can get their hands around, the governor then said, “…and I will tell you. It’s three agencies of government when I get there that are gone. Commerce. Education. And the, uh. Uh, what’s the third one there, let’s see… Commerce Education and, uh, the uh, uh, uh…”

“EPA?” Congressman Ron Paul offered.

“EPA, there you go!”

The moderator asked, “Seriously, is EPA the one you’re talking about?”

Sporting a good ol’ boy grin, the governor sheepishly answered, “No, sir.”

After saying the EPA needed to be rebuilt, Perry then tried again to remember the third agency he would close when elected president. After stumbling, stuttering and checking his notes, the governor admitted he couldn’t remember the third agency he wanted to close. His final comment on the matter was, “I can’t. The third one, I can’t. Sorry. Oops.”


This is a president?



“Uh, I just pushed this red button. I wonder what it does? Oh! Really? Oops.”

We’ll see if this story gets played up with the same media fervor (bias?) that Howard Dean’s scream in Iowa in 2004 got.

I don’t run for president of the United States because I’m not smart enough, I’m not experienced enough, I’m not savvy enough. I’m not a lot of things enough. The difference between me and Governor Perry is that I know it.
