Iowans Are Watching Rick Perry's 'Oops' Moment, YouTube Says

BY Nick Judd | Friday, November 11 2011

Rick Perry's "Oops" is being widely viewed in the swing states, YouTube's Ramya Raghavan writes:

Footage of the "oops" moment was viewed over half a million times in the twelve hours following the debate, and that number is still climbing.
