I didn’t watch the last Republican presidential candidate debate, but it sounds like Perry’s performance was out and out embarrassing:
On Wednesday night in Michigan, Perry said he would cut three agencies from the federal government but could only name two of them.
“Commerce, Education and the – what’s the third one there? Let’s see,” Perry said before his rivals volunteered the Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates pollution and is very unpopular with conservatives.
Later in the debate, Perry said he meant to say the Energy Department was the third agency he would eliminate. But it was too late. The awkard pause was out there for all to see.
Now who are you supporting?
