Easy mistake to make.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army

It's weird. Maybe even a decade ago, such a mistake would have been devastating. These days, maybe because mistakes are happening more often or because everything is on tv or youtube, it seems that people just laugh off mistakes as not meaning anything. Now this one is a little less of a deal, because it's not the candidate himself that messed up. I was just surprised that Perry's campaign wasn't killed when he couldn't even remember his campaign points. I guess the days of worrying about if a candidate sounds/comes off as "presidential" are over. Though to some extent the candidate's ideas should matter most. But the more together a person seems, it does make them appear to be more of what a leader of a nation should be.CHIRP! CHIRP!

Exactly. Demorats and Republicants are so in bed with each other that it's a joke. I believe it was Jesse Ventura who made the comparison to professional wrestling. Sure, in public when they perform they hate each other's guts, but in the smoke-filled back rooms in Washington, they are all chuckling and having beers together. Talking about how much us suckers keep voting for the same people.
The last 4 Presidents we've had are related with each other. If that's not a sign someone else is pulling the strings, I don't know what is.
