President 2012: Rick Perry Can’t Remember the Federal Agencies He Wants to Cut

Texas Governor Rick Perry has a lapse of memory during tonight’s CNBC Presidential Debate

Rick Perry’s campaign for President imploded tonight with his lapse of memory as to which federal agencies he would cut. The answer he is grasping for  = Department of Energy.

AllahPundit over at Hot Air has the quotes:

  • To my memory, Perry’s forgetfulness is the most devastating moment of any modern primary debate – Larry Sabato
  • That might be the most uncomfortable moment I’ve ever witnessed in presidential politics – Rich Lowry
  • That was the greatest flame-out I’ve ever witnessed in a debate – Mona Charon
  • WaPo’s Aaron Blake tweets: “Top Perry fundraiser to me: ‘Perry campaign is over. Time for him to go home and refocus on being Gov of TX.’”

And, Perry’s retort after the debate: 

“I’m sure glad I had my boots on because I sure stepped in it out there.”

Put a fork in Rick Perry – He’s Done!
