Texas Governor and GOP presidential contender Rick Perry is trying to turn his poor performances in recent debates into an asset with a new campaign ad in Iowa. The money line: "If you're looking for a slick politician or a guy with great teleprompter skills, we already have that and he's destroying our economy. I'm a doer not a talker." With that blistering yet incredibly accurate depiction of President Barack Obama, Mr. Perry may have found the perfect way to redeem himself with the party's first voters.

There's more news than just a new tax plan coming out of Rick Perry's presidential campaign this week. In addition to his highly anticipated flat tax proposal to be announced tomorrow, the Texas governor and former front runner in the GOP presidential sweepstakes is shaking up his campaign staff big time.

The candidates in last night's Republican presidential debate failed to deliver again. The two hour event included the same old stump speech sound bytes, lots of defensive posturing and attempted jabs at each other most of which missed their marks. The allegedly conservative front runner claimed anyone against giving illegal immigrants tuition breaks is heartless, the moderate that's currently running second is still trying to defend his state health care mandate and the most memorable moment of the night came from a candidate few have even heard of.

First, President Barack Obama tried to characterize his political opposition as people more concerned with politics than country. Neither a new strategy nor one that hasn't worked before for other desperate candidates, but then he made the mistake of believing his own lies. The president's speech on Thursday night was tailored to bait the kind of politicians he claimed House Republicans are. But since they're not, Mr. Obama is left having to actually participate in solving the country's problems instead of engaging in the kind of negative political campaigning he prefers.
