Former Texas Governor and current GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry struggled deeply to find something nice to say about about the current House Speaker and the Senate Majority Leader.
Appearing on the ‘Morning Joe’ program, Perry was asked by Mark Halperin, “Congress is being run by your party now, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell. What are they doing well, and what are they doing poorly.”
After some very minor criticism of the leadership, Halperin pressed Perry to answer what “Boehner and McConnell are doing well now”. What followed was a good 30 seconds of um’s and uh’s, before Perry gave up and threw out a talking point in favor of the merits of his own candidacy.
It should also be mentioned that Governor Perry seems to have a problem with the relative size of bread portions. Touting his ability to reach across the aisle and make deals, Perry said “I’d rather have half a loaf than no loaf, and right now we’re getting a lot of no loaf. Matter of fact we’re not even getting a slice”, failing to grasp the fact that no loaf is actually less than a slice.
Whether Perry is now ready to hit the debate stage after disastrous performances four years ago may be a moot question. It is unlikely that Perry will make the cut for next weeks debate. Fox News is limiting the stage to the top ten candidates, and two percent Rick is lagging the field.
