Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) – Rick Perry flubbed both the country's voting age and the date of the upcoming presidential election at a speech to a group of college students in Manchester Tuesday.
The Texas governor told students in the audience he'd appreciate their vote if they were turning 21 by Nov. 12.
But the United States' voting age is 18, and voters will weigh in on the presidential election on Nov. 6.
A few members of the audience giggled but Perry did not appear to notice his error.
You know, he should probably just keep his mouth shut cause the more he talks, the more he shows how little he knows. LLLLLLLoser.
Dear God its G.W. Bush all over again.
Is there ANY politician from Texas who isn't an absolute moron? I know why they wear cowboy boots; they don't know how to tie shoe laces.
Every family has a 'special' member that they don't talk about. In Texas' case, that 'family member' happens to be our governor. He needs to come on back home where he has a smaller chance of embarrassing us before the whole world. He is so not ready for prime time.
And soon there will be six.
The liberal media moved the election date. What will they do next?
He confused the voting age with the drinking age because his mind was on that stiff drink he couldn't wait to down. The guy is really not presidential material, anyone can see that. Pity all those big donors who wasted their money, yeah.
Wow! Now this is funny! But he will come up with an excuse AS USUAL to explain why he said that! And his voters will rally behind him this country is screwed from top to bottom put the repubs in office an let the country collapse in on it's self like bush had started how dare we complain about being broke when we go and spend 52BILLION dollars in 3 days on shopping screw the 99% go and get a JOB !!!!!!!!
This may seem odd, but I have a feeling he is doing these "gaffes" on purpose. I think people "behind the scenes" forced Perry to run and now Perry wants out, so he is purposely destroying his run. I don't know, just a hunch.
Every single republican candidate is just a complete embarrassment.
The beautiful thing about the Tea Party is that they've drug all the crazies into the limelight and one of these knuckleheads will probably get the nomination. We can only hope. These are people who know nothing and claim they know what's best for America. Newt has now positioned himself as an erudite man, whose profound intellect will guide us out of the horrible mess we're in. Newt, last year you said that the solution to the National Debt was for America to go bankrupt. Soon thereafter, when you were attacked from all sides, you said, "I was taken out of context". He then claimed that he meant it was something we "could" do, not that he would recommend it. These people are hopeless.
Excuse me, excuse me, but Perry is a "Flub"
Give it up, Rick!
Q. Mr. Perry whats your wife name
A. Cindy, oops. i meant becky, lmao..........wow and Texans voted him gov-na 10yrs in a row, unbelievable.
GOP= Two adultra's, Mr. forgetful, flip -flop flip- flop flip- flop, The crazy lady, and what's that guy name..........again, we gotta do better!
I think he realizes you would have to be drunk to vote for him
I fail to see why anyone would vote for a Repub except Ron Paul or Jon Huntsman. Ron Paul/Gary Johnson 2012.
This guy is the new Dan Quayle, definetely vice-president material !!!!!
Clearly a man who has never voted
I don't think he misspoke, he's just implying that you'd have to be drunk to vote for him anyway
I think the voting age should be based on their competence, intelligence, and maturity level which makes most of you ineligible to vote.
How can Rick Perry be channeling George W if George W is still alive?
Hey Perry, can you spell D U M ?
I didn't think it was possible, but he's an even bigger fool than W.
Dumber than Bush……I never thought I would say that.
And this is surprisi becngause ... ?
