Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) offered a critical assessment of some of the problems with his last presidential run.”I wasn’t healthy. You all know the health stories — it was what it was,”
During a 2012 GOP debate in Rochester, Michigan, Perry struggled to name the three federal agencies he would cut if elected president.
“The third agency of government I would do away with —the Education, the uh, the Commerce, and let’s see. I can’t find the third one. I can’t,” Perry said during the debate. “Sorry, oops.”
Later in the cycle, aides to Perry said that the governor suffered from severe back pains and depended on painkillers to make it through the debates, which seemed to have affected his debate performances.
Sure, Rick. Blame your stupid on drugs. I get it, I’m on a few myself and I couldn’t debate a turnip on the fly. The thing is, Rick, you are a Republican, and cursed are ye to blither, crash and burn.
