In an opinion piece published on FoxNews.com, National Review Editor Rich Lowry bashes Gov. Rick Perry’s performance in last night’s debate and notes the huge advantage that challenger Mitt Romney seems to have in verbal acuity.
“It’s become clear that Romney has an advantage over Perry in these forums simply because he’s more articulate, detailed and authoritative-sounding in his answers; he’s like a boxer with a reach advantage,” Lowry writes.
Lowry concludes with a dire warning for the Perry campaign. “A few weeks ago, the question was how far and fast he would ascend; now, after his third debate, it’s how much he’ll drop.”
