Perry: ‘Shoot, I Might be a Good Debater’ by Primary’s End

Rick Perry emphasized today that he may not dramatically curtail his debate appearances.

“I don’t know whether we’re going to forgo any debates,” Perry told reporters in New Hampshire today, according to NBC News. “There are a lot of debates. Shoot, I might be a good debater before this is all over. We haven’t made any decisions about what we’re gonna do.”

Talking about his comments earlier this week about President Obama’s birth certificate, Perry said, “I don’t consider making fun of something being a mistake.” He did call the issue a “distraction.”
