Perry ‘Not Worried’ About Beating Obama in Debates

In an interview with Chris Wallace this morning, Rick Perry addressed the concerns that his poor debating meant President Obama could beat him in a debate during the general election.

Saying he was “not worried a bit,” about the prospect, Perry said, “I’ll be able to stand on the stage with Barack Obama and draw a very bright line, a real contrast between an individual who has lost two and a half million jobs for this country, someone who is signalling to our opponents when we’re going to pull out of  a particular war zone, an individual who has taken an experiment with the American economy and urned it into an absolute Frankenstein experience.”

“Oh, I think I’m going to be able to stand on that stage and draw a clear contrast with Barack Obama,” Perry added.

Perry’s campaign  told the Associated Press yesterday that Perry will attend at least five more debates, the four slated for November and one on December 1.
