President 2012: Rick Perry Steps In It Again

Republican presidential candidate Texas Governor Rick Perry answers a question from the audience at a town hall campaign stop in Nashua, New Hampshire November 16, 2011

It isn’t a large gaffe, but the timing of explaining his other voting age gaffe was telling.
But in the same interview, in which Perry appeared from New Hampshire, the Texas governor incorrectly identified the state’s early voting contest as “caucuses” instead of a “primary.”

“Americans haven’t decided yet at all who they want to lead the Republican nomination and we’re going to be talking about that, we’re going to be talking about it in harsh and strong terms over the course of the next four to five weeks are we get ready for those New Hampshire caucuses,” Perry said.

New Hampshire will host the first-in-the-nation primary on Jan. 10, following the first-in-the-nation caucuses in Iowa, where Perry has focused the bulk of his energies, on Jan. 3.

Perry and Cain are embarrassments to the GOP and should just give it up and withdraw.
