    I`m no Republican but I can understand confusing L-ibya with L-ebanon Just like A-frica/A-ntarctica, F-iji/F-inland, or T-hailand/T-exas. You see? Easy.

    McGovern1981,
    I can think of no way to excuse the "57 States" gaffe!

    Where was the relevant part? He said the Embassy in Libya. It was attacked in fall of 2012. What did he say incorrectly?

    #1 Simply mis-speaking is not the same as being an utter idiot.

    Guam Might Capsize! With "Benny Hill" music...

    #2 With his thick accent? He might have said "Libya" and it just sounded like "Lebanon"... OK, I`m just making that up :-)

    Heck, at least they`re in the same region!

    @LandoGriffin: Right at the very beginning, about 4 seconds in, he says "Leb-nun" when referring to the Benghazi attack. It`s just ONE word out of an otherwise good speech!

    @5Cats: You probably should have realized that you would get this sort of response when you tried to bait people with that political assertion. I mean, really. See Rick Perry`s debate "3 things" performance or really every day of the George W Bush presidency.

    I just assumed it was his Texas accent making "Libya" sound like "Leb-yer"

    I happen to think Rick Perry is a complete moron but I understood what he said just fine. I certainly did not hear "Lebanon" - at worst he said "Lebyun"

    Say, what was the name of Rick Perry`s ranch where he used to host hunting parties? Blackhead, something like that?

    I heard it as lebnun.. but to be honest- he doesn`t exactly speak clearly does he? I mean- I have very little idea WHAT he was talking about...

    @5Cats - So, he simply misspoke, eh? Hahaha, that`s exactly what I was expecting to hear from you. You`re a living breathing definition of the term double standard.

    In case you forgot, Rick Perry is an "utter idiot" so I`ll refresh your memory...

    Before... umm... 2nd ammendment for... umm... Roe v Wade... for... umm... against...

    The infamous "3 things" performance

    This one makes Dubya seem like a genius

    This post is the very definition of partisan filth. I actually watched the entire thing waiting for him to look like a bozo and it never happened. But apparently in the beginning, he swallows the word Libya to where it sounds not like Lebanon, but Lebada (kind of). Big clucking deal. You really think that he doesn`t know it was Libya? Despite all of the briefings and news reports he and all of us have heard over the past many months that all said Libya, he still is convinced it was Lebanon? You really think that. Ok. Quite the critical thinker you must be, if you do.

    Whodat, ohh the syrup cuddling speech, nice one!

    But that`s not all, recently Perry signed a state law making it legal for kids to wish each other "Merry Christmas" or "Happy Hanukkah" in schools, even though it was already legal, (because you never can be too sure) to I kid you not, the sounds of jangling sleigh bells held by surrounding dept. store Santas.

    Yeah it`s a circus down there... and Perry is the Ringmaster.

    And lo and behold, most of the posts here are partisan filth. Most of you sound like:

    OMG RICK PERRY FORGOT ONE OF THE POINTS HE PREPARED FOR IN A DEBATE!!! DUDE IS SUCH A LOSER!

    OMG OBAMA ACTUALLY THINKS THERE ARE 57 STATES. HE IS SO DUMB

    OMG BUSH DID (insert a long list of things from 5-10 years ago, mostly skewed to petty things, peppered with things that did actually matter deeply)

    OMG OBAMA WON`T WEAR A FLAG PIN. MUSLIM TRAITOR

    OMG OBAMA WON`T PUT HIS HAND ON HIS HEART. COMMUNIST!

    OMG DID YOU SEE MARCO RUBIO TAKE A DRINK OF WATER. NOT PRESIDENTIAL!

    OMG SARAH PALIN THINKS SHE CAN SEE RUSSIA FROM HER HOUSE! LET`S MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF THIS FOR YEARS TO COME EVEN THOUGH IT WAS AN SNL SKIT!

    OMG AL GORE THINKS HE INVENTED THE INTERNET. LOSER!

    Pretty much all of you sound this ridiculous. I can`t even believe this is being discussed seriously.

    Which reminds me, a real conversation actually overheard in Texas: "So in admitting clergy to your son`s hospital room...Should they be Christian or Baptist?"

    :-O

    @WhoDat: Did I pee in your cornflakes or something? :-/

    You want "double standard"? Just watch the MSM News! Read any newspaper. Look at any "liberal" blog...

    Are you suggesting -I- have a double standard? Then you haven`t been paying attention, sonny-boy!

    Is Rick Perry an idiot? I have NO idea! Probably. But taking ONE SINGLE word which MAY OR MAY NOT have been said and comparing it to THE ISLAND OF GUAM CAPSIZING?

    O`Really?

    Apples And Oranges

    @Andrew155 - Unfortunately, I don`t have a sarcasm font, so I figured the "(I`m looking at you 5Cats)" part of the link description would get the point across. Calm down and take a look at this recent post by 5Cats and you might get the joke.

    @5Cats - I don`t watch any main stream media, the only "news" I watch is the 5 o`clock local news to see what`s going on near me.

    What part of "you`re a living breathing definition of the term double standard" don`t you understand?

    A Democrat makes a mistake in a speech, you rant about how stupid they are. A Republican makes a mistake in a speech, you say they simply misspoke. That, right there, is the definition of double standard.

    "A double standard is the application of different sets of principles for similar situations, or by two different people in the same situation."

    @WhoDat: Um, yeah! My post is "funny" so I put it in the Funny category.

    ANY politician making a gaffe or mis-speaking is funny!

    Why is this in "News and Politics"? Eh?

    I hope you`re just having a laugh about my post, but -gee whiz- you sound so serious!

    Math? It`s not math!

    He admits Wall St. is doing well, then turns around and blames welfare for our economic problems. If corporations are enjoying record profits, and they`re not hiring, how is the fault of people who need help? Conservatives make me laugh.

    Hahaha, I get that a lot. People have a hard time reading me, especially in person because I have a pretty solid poker face.

    Sadly, we could do this all day from every political party out there (well, at least all who`ve had candidates in the national news). No party has a monopoly on idiots. ;-)

    I`m with some of the posters who think this is about a ridiculous debate as there ever was. I mean, really, this is what gets your panties all jumblied up? Really? Making mistakes, even dumb-ass major errors is not the sole property of any one political party or any group. There`s plenty of idiocy to go around for all of us.
