This Is The Moment Rick Perry's Presidential Chances Flash Crashed

Tyler Durden's picture


1 minute 40 seconds into this clip is where Rick Perry's presidential chances flash crash. Literally. As the attached InTrade chart shows, the Perry presidential contract imploded from a prevailing level of about 9 by 60% to 3 in the span of milliseconds, and has since dead cat bounced to about a 50% decline. Who would have thought that the vacuum tubes have now taken over presidential odds as well? As for Perry's presidential chances, this being America, where the population gets precisely the president it deserves, we would not be at all surprised if this epic moment of self-humiliation did not just cement Perry's election chances. In other news, ISDA has just declared all CDS written on Perry to be untriggered as his political suicide was completely voluntary.

And the actual Flash Crash. Source: Intrade

Rick Perry is the male version of Sarah Palin.  Lots of folksy/cheesy rhetoric and right-wing cliches which are deliberately overplayed to mask the total lunacy of their presidential bids.* All show, no substance like a bad political vaudeville act missing the song, dance and harmonica to make it complete. Only the dumbest, most gullible George Bush-style Amuurricans could be seduced by such faux-folksy ridiculousness.    

While I don't like Ron Paul at all, at least he has convictions, is genuine and speaks from his gut - no one has to tell him what to say, and I'm never waiting for him to break into a song and dance after he speaks.  Can't say the same for Palin and Perry. They're just cartoon caricatures of right-wing bobble heads who struggle to memorize and repeat what they've been told to say by their keepers.  Perry couldn't even ad-lib his way out of it tonight. Why?  Because he's hollow to the core.   

Max Fischer, Civis Mundi 

* yes, Palin was a presidential candidate, despite the fact that she never officially announced it.  She took the cowardly path of running from the sidelines until it was obvious she's better suited for political theatre than politics.

Now, I would actually vote for Perry...  He is CLEARLY the most pro-business when elected.  Because the bankers/CEOs/lobbyists will run circles AROUND him and good for the bubble economy.


FINALLY, instead of a polished guy that knows what to say... we got an idiot that know he doesn't.

I've always said that. Anyone who is smart enough to become a pilot is certainly not dumb, yet alone a military pilot. Dubya was certainly not dumb. A poor-spoken banker puppet seeking daddy's approval perhaps but not dumb from an IQ standpoint at least.

Your forgetting all this was during Vietnam, and daddy was high up in government.

All of W's education and military service were ways to get him defered from active service, not to get an education. There is a lot of evidence that he rarely attended any of it, and 'magically' received the minimum necessary to maintain his deferment.

What I meant is RP is tying answer every question with "End the FED".  "What would you do about _______?" "End the FED" 

Just like HC's pat answer "My bold plan 999", it became laughable towards the end. 

I am a huge RP supporter (despite the fact he would have to be elected Emperor in order to put his plans in place), but he needs to diversify his answers so the avg. debate watching American can get to the "he knows what to do, I'll vote for him" moment.

Mitt and Newt are looking very Presidential with their demenor and answers.  I know RP is right, but his "let everything get worse and fail plan" is not what "the people" want to hear.  Plus, sometimes he comes off as the grumpy, old man.

Thu, 11/10/2011 - 10:05 | 1865613 FEDbuster

Yes, and I heard cheers with 999, too.  Then towards the end there was laughter at Mr. "999".  I don't want to see Mr. "End the FED", become a parody of himself.  Say it once, make your case and move on.  Ron Paul is about much more than ending the FED. 

Many of us here at ZH would be classified as "doom and gloomers", but that is not a good quality to have running for POTUS.  We may be right about our outlook for the future, but that is not what the avg. American wants to here from a candidate.  They can't handle the truth, and RP needs to learn to do a little sugar coating of the truth.

Bush caught himself....I don't like Bush but he is a lot smarter than anyone ever gives him credit for.  He wasn't a wiz at math or nothin', he was just dyslexic, that's all.

A good case for his quick wit was the 2000 presidential debate, where he roasted Al Gore.  People are always saying how smart Gore is, but Bush roasted his ass over a hot fire.

Personally I think Gore is dumb so it is not like I was impressed from those debates.

But Bush is smarter than Obama, and definately Perry, I can tell you that!

Bush likely has brain damage from his hard drinking and drug using decades. The smartest thing he ever did was being born into the Bush dynasty. I care not for him or his rivals on the opposite side of the aisle, they are all fools or lackeys or worse.

It's like comparing the size and grain of 2x4's before using them to beat yourself on the head with. It makes no difference and the results are always painful and regretful.

I said he was not brilliant.  My point is that while certain people thik the Dems are smart (Gore, Obama) because that is what they are told, it doesn't mean Bush is more stupid.


They are all sinister, they are all Ivy League educated.  They are all rich lazy fuckers, but they can have half a wit.

I would say Bush is smarter than Obama and Gore anyday.

You are telling us that "he was just dyslexic, that's all?" You've got to be joking. Most know, or at the very least suspect, that Bush was never in charge of jack. It was Cheney and a small circle of trust running the show for the first four years while they shielded and protected Bush's image from the media. After reelection, who cared? They (Cheney & the circle of trust) knew they literally owned the White House for another four years and the looting of the treasury could be stepped up way ahead of schedule. In Bush's second term, his handlers even dropped prepping him for the simpler things to include brief Rose Garden announcements designed to make the evening news. They didn't care about polling and it showed. Bush didn't care because he was just doing ole dad and his buddies a favor.

His future was determined long before by his father who left office in January 1993. Less than a year later, two of Bush's otherwise politically inept sons would suddenly emerge from nowhere and run for governorships in the two most electoral vote rich states that Republicans had a chance of winning -- Texas & Florida. Jeb would lose Florida in 1994 but win in 1998 just in time for the 2000 presidential elections.

While Bush has had occasional but rare moments that might have given you patriotic pause, they are easily outweighed by his endless and embarrassing gaffes, lack of attentiveness, and general incompetence and lack of command of anything ranging from the English language to the general subject matter that any president should be familiar with after a couple of years on the job.

More telling was how Bush lacklusterly provided piss poor excuses for the $700 billion dollar TARP & the immediate commutation of sentence via a presidential pardon for Scooter Libby ONLY after the federal appeals court let his conviction and sentence stand. Team Bush (ala Bush with Cheney as puppeteer) left the $250K fine in place because "he still deserved to be punished." Libby wrote a check for the entire amount the very next day. It was a joke.

Bush was a President In Name Only(PINO).

To help refresh your recollection, here is a video of the first presidential debate in 2004:

Were # 1


I, Dapper Dan am so embarrassed about this video  I can’t type correctly.

I know many of the ZH crew are from outside the U.S. of Fucking A, and I am so sorry you all had to endure this shit.

Did you know we spend more money on defense than the next 6 or 7 countries combined? That should scare the shit out of the rest of the world!

After seeing this clip of our potential next leader I am sure you must be sick to your stomach.  I know I am.

This  man Rick Perry  does not represent the people of the USA, although  he does represent the kind of person the PTB think would represent us, they are obviously out of touch and have bigger things on their mind at the moment … MF Global,  Jefferson county,  Penn St football ,  unregulated  anonymous financial blogs.

Again, I apologize on behalf of the very few good and sane people of the U.S.A.

Ron Paul for President.     This should be self evident to the folks outside the USA.


For what it's worth the governor of Texas is a figure head (with good hair) position.

Our Lieutenant Governor has real control, David Dewhurst, Ex CIA, and founder of Falcon Seaboard, a Texas-based diversified energy and investments company.

Did you post this on another thread?

This is the kind of evidence I live by. The righteous will live by faith, Christians believe that "proving" God exists is futile. It's a faith problem.

Admit it Covsire you like Perry because he said he prays and that he is a Christian, right!

Nixion said the same. They all say the same,

I bet you went all the way with LBJ back in 1964.

So you hate him because he's open about his faith?  They all do say the same, that's true. Even Christian-holiday shunning and Muslim-holiday loving Obama. It's not always genuine and Perry's may not be either. Ron Paul doesn't wear his faith on his sleeve and I still support him.  My comment to you was based on the America-is-the-badguy mentality the predominates liberal and some libertarian's thought processes.  The world does not run on puppy dogs and sunshine and without the USA's resolve to keep the peace, which is on the wane, WW3 will begin.  The bankers are that good and the sheep are that enthralled in hope, change and the nice crease in Obama's pants to not even leave someone manning the guard tower.

I couldn't pay attention to anything for about 5 minutes. I just zoned out in shock and horror for the man. I was somewhere between pissing myself in laughter and crying myself to sleep for the guy. He and Joe Biden should have a debate - now that would be funny.

But here's the scoop...

I'm hoping that we finally (many years too late) begin to recognize that leadership -- and its path -- has outdone itself, led us to a very bad place, and the Narcissist simpletons who aspire to power have no place in our society any longer.

There were factories to go to work in after WW2, replacing the women that were there before. There were consumer goods to be made like autos. The factories are now in China, Mexico, India, etc. Do we send them there now?

Didn't either of you 'tards read any history? After WWII, most of Britain, most of Europe, most of Japan, and most of China were PILES OF SMOKING RUBBLE. China, India, and Russia, besides being stuck in the 19th century were all saddled with retarded communist/socialist governments that effectively removed them from competition. So what freakin' competition did the US and Canada have? We survived the war without any of our continental territory being touched, so while the rest of the world was scrabbling around trying to keep the rain off their heads and finding something to eat, we built an enormous consumer goods machine, and raised the most selfish, hedonistic, and thoughtless generation of all time. What kind of idiots think that with a high school education, they can work for 25 years, and then retire with a fat pension, full health care, and a winter home in Florida? 

We won the war, and squandered the peace. Want someone to blame? Look in the mirror.
