Perry May Skip Future Debates
This should go over well. Not enough time, or not enough talent? :think:

Perry May Skip Future Debates


Maggie Haberman reports that Rick Perry, who has not proven himself to be the most compelling performer in debates, may not attend any more Republican presidential primary debates after the upcoming debate in Michigan.

Said Perry spokesman Mark Miner, "I think all the campaigns are expressing frustration right now. We said we would do Michigan but the primaries are around the corner and you have to use your time accordingly."

National Journal: "There appears to be consensus in the Rick Perry campaign that skipping some future debates may be the best strategy for the Texas governor."

2. That's a mistake IMO
It sets his inability in stone.

The alternative would be to get a little better each debate which won't be hard against his very low expectations.

3. Well he has 2 choices:
1) Keep going to the debates and prove he is an idiot.

b) Stop debating and show that he is a coward.

Either way he is toast.

4. Not Ready For Prime Time
He's this year's Sarah Palin. Every time he opens his mouth, things get worse for him, so he's going to go hide and hope everyone else screws up sufficiently to propel him back to the top.

7. I've skipped them all.
They're a farce. The purpose of these debates is to occupy main street.

10. I thought he had been skipping them
Oh, I know he was physically present, but that's about the best that can be said of his debate performance.

12. I don't think that is going to work for him like it did in the governor race
He got away with it down here, but I don't think that trick is going to do anything for him in a national race.
