Rick Perry messes up voting age, thinks it’s

21 not 18!

No matter what you try to do in life, you should always know what your target audience is. Rick Perry is attempting to run for president, so the target audience that he should be focusing on are Americans over the age of 18. Unfortunately for Perry, he seems to be a little lost. During a speech at a local college in New Hampshire, Perry stated that he would love their vote if they were 21 by November 12th, 2012. There are two problems with this statement, the voting age is 18 not 21, and the election is actually November 6th not the 12th.

Rick Perry: “Those of you who will be 21 by November the 12th, I ask for your support”
What does this say about Rick Perry? What does this say about the candidates running for the Republican nominee? People seem to be numb by these gaffes from people like Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann and Herman Cain. One could only imagine what the reaction would have been if President Obama or even Mitt Romney made a mistake like that. Rick Perry and the majority of the Republican candidates need to see the light and step down, before they embarrass themselves and their party even more than they have already.
