Video: The obligatory “Rick Perry feelin’ good in New Hampshire” clip

posted at 5:25 pm on October 31, 2011 by Allahpundit

I tucked this into last night’s QOTD but it warrants its own post now that it’s officially, er, international news. Any Texans/longtime Perry-watchers care to speculate? Ben Domenech told Ace that he’s seen Perry like this once before and thinks he was overcompensating for being tired. I don’t know; he’s been tired during the debates too and the result was … not a burst of giddy energy, to put it mildly. Maybe he was just groovin’ on the thought of leading Obama in, of all places, Wisconsin? Or maybe he realized that he’s still the default option once undecideds realize that they don’t like Romney and don’t trust a candidate as inexperienced as Cain? Or maybe he’s the guy who bet on the Cardinals back in early September? All theories welcome.

That’s the first clip. The second clip is his new ad in Iowa, in which he nudges voters not to care so much about what gets said at debates. Exit question: Perry’s numbers in New Hampshire according to the last eight polls taken are 4, 4, 6, 7, 2, 2, 4, 4. Why is he still spending time there?

He’s so high.

mythicknight on October 31, 2011 at 5:26 PM

I think he’s a little drunk, but I suppose I should wait for further explanation from Politico/

Knucklehead on October 31, 2011 at 5:30 PM

Well they must not be that worried about it because a link to the speech made their daily news e-mail to supporters.

gophergirl on October 31, 2011 at 5:30 PM

These idiotic candidates are the reason why we are going to be stuck with Romney. I hope all those Perrykrishnas are happy now.

promachus on October 31, 2011 at 5:30 PM

This was characterized as an unflatteringly edited video. Should you not have a disclaimer that it was edited to make Perry look bad? Have you compared it to the actual video?

eaglesdontflock on October 31, 2011 at 5:31 PM

Here’s the full 25 minute speech to see it in context:

He is f****** up as a can of worms, but at least he is loose. Might be worth a try at the next debate.He could probably giggle Mitt into a complete breakdown.

Here’s the entire speech, unedited, all 25 minutes of it.

Trust me, it’s all pretty bad looking.

Knucklehead on October 31, 2011 at 5:35 PM

I’ll also add that he was speaking before a friendly audience of social conservative Christian activists where he obviously felt comfortable. He was not “incoherent”, Allah. Watching the 25 minute version shows that he had sprinkled his jokes into a serious speech, hitting all his points.

Aslans Girl on October 31, 2011 at 5:36 PM

Honest reaction: Perry seems incredibly appealing and “regular guy”-sy.

Robert_Paulson on October 31, 2011 at 5:37 PM

Bill C on October 31, 2011 at 5:38 PM

He’s not drunk. His speech is clear. But it is goofy. However, it’s only goofy from the perspective of running for Pres. Outside that, it’s really not that goofy. If I were to guess why, I’d say he’s trying too hard to show that he relates with New Hampshire. It’s kind of like the guy you take to a black tie event and can’t help but take large bites of his meal, put his elbows on the table, and chit-chat about bad the Cowboys are doing.

Weight of Glory on October 31, 2011 at 5:38 PM

He’s not drunk. Alcohol slows the brain and results in symptoms such as slurring. What is he exhibiting here can be described by saying two things:

1) it is behavior that is not typical of Perry and
b) it is behavior consistent with someone under the influence of cocaine.

keep the change on October 31, 2011 at 5:38 PM

Errr … maybe he wanted to show NH libertarians he’s for legalizing drugs?

MeatHeadinCA on October 31, 2011 at 5:38 PM

Or maybe he realized that he’s still the default option once undecideds realize that they don’t like Romney and don’t trust a candidate as inexperienced as Cain?

I have noticed what seems to be adulation among some Perry supporters about the prospects of a Cain implosion resulting from recent revelations. I don’t have a dog in the fight as I’m not really in either camp (though would happily vote for either in the general), so this is an honest question for Perry supporters:

If Cain implodes, do you really see his support swinging back to Perry? Because I don’t. But I am open to hearing a persuasive argument.

Kataklysmic on October 31, 2011 at 5:39 PM

thphilli on October 31, 2011 at 5:39 PM

As I said i the Headlines last night… if he was drunk, someone buy him a few more cases of sour mash.

He was the Happy Warrior in that clip. He was Humphrey. He was Al Smith. He was the guy who will carry a conservative banner in a cigar-chomping, whiskey-toasting, press-the-flesh-until-your-hands-hurt type of way.

If he came out in the debates looking like that, I’d feel a lot better about him.

A lot…

Robert_Paulson on October 31, 2011 at 5:37 PM

I agree. I thought he was relaxed, personable, and was out to have some fun while getting his point across. His anecdotes seemed spontaneous, not forced (I’m looking at you, Huntsman).

If he’s this relaxed, people will hit him for not having “gravitas”. But the guy in the WH right now is chock full of gravitas, plus about 30 lbs of cow patties. And we’re not so impressed.

Overall, I bet this video helps. Nowhere does he go off message. Seems to be quite genuine.

Nethicus on October 31, 2011 at 5:42 PM

Watch the entire speech and not a cobbled together clip. They guy was just having fun with lots of interaction with the crowd.

Kermit on October 31, 2011 at 5:43 PM

William Amos on October 31, 2011 at 5:43 PM

Weight of Glory on October 31, 2011 at 5:38 PM

I mostly agree with this.

If, IF, Perry is guilty of anything it is trying to hard to win over the room at the expense of a TV/YouTube audience that lacks the proper context and proximity.

He’s not drunk or high. He’s just being informal.

Robert_Paulson on October 31, 2011 at 5:43 PM

In a letter sent to Kathleen Sebelius, the president’s top health and human services adviser, and Donald Berwick, who runs the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs, Sens. John Kerry and Scott Brown and the 10 members of the Massachusetts U.S. House delegation warned that a change in support proposed by the Obama administration “could significantly threaten payments to Massachusetts health care providers providing care for the most vulnerable populations.”

William Amos on October 31, 2011 at 5:46 PM

I saw a few parts of it, not all. But that looked like the real Perry we know as our governor. He really does have a personality, and can be a lot of fun. that’s it, sorry- no drugs there. lol

Knucklehead on October 31, 2011 at 5:52 PM

One of my favorite lines from the speech (the full version) is:

The death tax will expire before you expire.

Oh, and his joke about how gold is good because of DC printing more money. On a serious note, he mentioned all of the pro-life bills he’s signed as Gov. It was a great speech.

I’m glad he was able to have some fun in the middle of an arduous campaign.

amerpundit on October 31, 2011 at 5:53 PM

Regardless what you think of GWB, the fact is, it’s too soon for anyone with a Texas twang to have even a remote chance of getting elected.

An accent can be cute if it’s perceived to be window dressing on someone with established intellectual cred. I’m sure Perry is a capable politician, but it’s obvious he’s dependent on other people’s brains.

I think the only way Cain implodes is if he has more baggage than Gingrich … so really it’s a win-win.

He’s coming off strong. Let’s see.

MeatHeadinCA on October 31, 2011 at 5:55 PM

I can’t remember anyone else who was so highly and eagerly anticipated and then fell so quickly. Didn’t he like bomb just days after he finally announced? And it’s only getting worse.

Next question… can he even win re-election in Texas?

Actually, it took a couple of weeks. I always figured I’d go with Perry if Palin didn’t run. Then I started taking a closer look and didn’t like what I saw: in-state tuition for illegals, opposition to e-verify, “pay-to-play” schemes that traded luxurytravel and gifts to the Perry family in exchange for political favors.

Then cam the “heartless” and “funny last name” comments.

Texas is different from the rest of the country. Texans thinks it’s better; the rest of us just think it’s different. What Perry and his advisors didn’t take into account is how much different Texas is from the rest of the country.

From what I heard, he was on fire. He is POed with the media over what they did to Cain. He kept bringing up Clinton and pointed out that if Cain had been a dem, we would know every detail about these “sexually harassed” women.

A lot of callers were saying this is the time to send more money and how Cain is coming out better for how he handled this.

That’s just what I heard.

MeatHeadinCA on October 31, 2011 at 6:12 PM

Or maybe he realized that he’s still the default option once undecideds realize that they don’t like Romney and don’t trust a candidate as inexperienced as Cain?

Yep, that’s why I haven’t written him off, yet. YET. Not quite yet. Close to doing it, though.

Here’s the thing. If you are comfortable making that bet (and I am not as I don’t have $1000 to lose), I suggest you donate that money to Romney instead of making the bet.

It’s going to be a hard fight to get any reasonable conservative the nomination, and making bets against them is pointless. So, feel free to send that money that you are privy to gambling to another campaign; or take a buck out and send Cain $999.

Remember David Patterson, the man who replaced Eliot Spitzer as Governor of New York? He got in major trouble for accepting four tickets to a Yankees World Series game. That pales in comparison to the hundreds of thousands in travel and gifts the Perry family has recevied from donors and special interests over the years.

Assuming you don’t live in Texas (or Cook County), your elected officials would probably be up on ethics charges if they took most of the perks Perry accepted. I know mine would.

Texas has some of the laxest ethics laws in the country. Therefore, what Perry has done did not break any laws. But that doesn’t make it any less unethical or corrupt.

And here’s MSM reports of the same speech, which were all positive: Washington Post

Aslans Girl on October 31, 2011 at 5:32 PM

They were positivie because the MSM & Obama would like nothing more than to run against Perry. Obama’s former deputy press sec Bill Burton thought Perry “won” the last debate. They are hoping upon hope that they get to face Perry.

BTW, why does Perry ad think “a doer and a talker” are mutually exclusive?

Note to Perry campaign: it’s probably not a good idea to highlight your candidates weakness.

Yup. I wrote him off early, despite his eloquence and superior intellect, because of the personal baggage, and the couch incident, and the Scuzzy endorsement, etc. However, it looks like his baggage isn’t worse than anyone elses and he can at least string a few sentences together.

He’s too damn high.

You forgot your sarc tag. (unless you have recently fallen off the Mitt wagon and I missed it)

Kataklysmic on October 31, 2011 at 6:46 PM

Honest reaction: Perry seems incredibly appealing and “regular guy”-sy.
Robert_Paulson on October 31, 2011 at 5:37 PM

Yep, he’d look totally normal at a fraternity party.

The SECOND LOOK AT[_______]theme is sarctastic to begin with so no tag needed.

I have seen the future and it is this.

The rent Perry is too damn high indeed.

Look up “LBJ ordering pants” for clips of what a real Texas buffoon sounds like.

The guy is a bit effeminate when the macho cowboy facade wears off, doesn’t he?

The macho cowboy facade doesn’t play well in the 56 states that don’t consider the Dallas Cowgirls “America’s Team.”
