Bizarre Video Montage of Perry Speech Has Critics Wondering: Was He Drunk?

(By Billy Hallowell, The Blaze) - Critics are abuzz after Texas Gov. Rick Perry gave a curious — some say bizarre — speech in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Friday night.

In an address that the Huffington Post called “unusually expressive,” the governor surprised many of his audience members.

Perry, who is seeking the GOP presidential nomination, was speaking at Cornerstone Action’s Annual Fundraising Dinner.*

Following the speech, a YouTuber with the username CharlieJohnson1986 spliced together some of the strangest portions of the 25-minute speech to create a montage of odd moments. Most agree, though, that the video was made to make Perry look bad.
