Rick Perry: Could it really have been that short lived?
Three debates in and a New Hampshire poll down, Rick Perry looks like he's lost his mojo. Is that all, folks?
If you watched the Fox/Google debate that kicked off the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida this week, you'll know which video clip we're going to embed below. If you didn't, you're in for somewhat of a treat.
Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, created waves when he entered the GOP race for the presidential nomination. His entry scared off other vultures who were circling, like Giuliani and Palin perhaps, and he robbed momentum from the now almost absent Michele Bachmann.
Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul all saw their own figures give way as the Governor of the Lone Star State threw his Stetson in the ring. Alas this honeymoon period was short lived for Perry. Latest performances and polling figures suggest he's coming crashing back down to earth like an old NASA satellite. His campaign team will be praying he doesn't break up on re-entry.
