Rick Perry revisited the scene of this embarrassing 2012 Presidential campaign over the weekend, while, back at home, the governor's legal defense team was preparing a motion to dismiss the felony abuse of power charges filed against him earlier this month, Newsradio 1200 WOAI reports.
Perry was contrite on a Manchester New Hampshire TV station, recalling receiving less than 2% of the Republican vote in the 2012 New Hampshire primary, just two months after his famous 'oops moment' in a debate in Michigan.
"If you're going to run for President you have to on your game," Perry said. "I wasn't, I had major back surgery, which requires a substantial amount of time, physically and mentally. I didn't take that into consideration."
Perry appeared to get a receptive response from New Hampshire Republicans.
Meanwhile, back in Texas, Perry's 'dream team' of legal advisers is preparing their request to have the criminal charges against him dismissed.
"It will seek to dismiss the prosecution, bar the prosecution of both counts, and stop the prosecution," Perry lawyer David Botsford told Newsradio 1200 WOAI.
They say the Governor was well within his free speech rights to demand the resignation of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg after her embarrassing arrest for drunk driving. They say Perry was also within his Constitutional authority to veto state funding for the Pubic Integrity Unit.
