But analysts say it shouldn’t cost him if he runs for President
Texas Governor Rick Perry has done it again.
The Governor seemed to forget where he was while he was making a speech over the weekend.
“There are many other states that embrace conservative values. I’m in one today. I’m in Florida,” Perry said.
The only problem was he wasn’t actually in Florida.
“You’re in Louisiana,” an audience member said.”
Perry, without skipping a beat joked, “I said that. I am in one of those states. I’m in Louisiana.”
So is this as bad as his 'oops' moment from the 2008 campaign. Analyst Chris Begala doesn't think so.
“If you are pre-disposed to like him and think he’s done a good job in running Texas you are going to give him the benefit of the doubt,” Begala told KTRH.
So does he deserve a pass?

“These are busy guys. They don’t know where they are at sometimes because of their busy schedules,” Begala explained.
And Begala says plenty of politicians have done this before, like this guy.
“I’ve now been in 57 states, with one left to go.”
And Barack Obama was elected as President not once, but twice.
Other politicians that have made famous slips of the tongue include Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
