Perry: 'Hell, Yeah' We Should Restructure GOP Debates

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, no stranger to live on-stage gaffes, is all for changing the way the GOP conducts its primary debates in 2016.

When Ohio Gov. John Kasich said at the Republican Governors Association meeting in Arizona Wednesday that it was time to "end the stupid way we conduct presidential debates," Perry replied, "Hell, yeah," reports Bloomberg.

Perry's weak performance in debates was seen as a major reason why his bid to become president last year faltered. The most notorious moment came in the ninth of the 20 debates, when he famously forgot the name of the third federal agency he would close down if elected to the White House. "Sorry, Oops," he said.

Perry has announced he will not seek re-election to the Austin Governor's Mansion next year but has not indicated whether he will make another bid for the White House in 2016.

In September, he told Yahoo News that he still thinks about that his "oops" moment in the Nov. 11, 2011 debate in Auburn Hills, Mich.

"It’s always a painful thing, but all of us have had brain lapses . . . and I put it behind me and go on about it," Perry said. "It happened. You know, it may happen again."
