CNBC Digital Video Exclusive: Texas Governor Rick Perry Sits Down with CNBC's John Harwood at Austin’s Bert's Bar-B-Q

WHEN: Today, Wednesday, December 10


Three years since Rick Perry's infamous "Oops" moment at CNBC's "Your Money, Your Vote: The Republican Presidential Debate," the Texas Governor sits down with CNBC Chief Washington Correspondent John Harwood in a CNBC DIGITAL VIDEO EXCLUSIVE at Austin's Bert's Bar-B-Q to relive the moment, talk about lessons learned and see if a potential presidential run is in the cards.

Some highlights from the video:

  • On his infamous "Oops" moment: "I suspect that it happens to everyone, I'm just not sure that there are four million people watching. I've had a lot of fun with it subsequently. You have just made some really good Saturday Night Live material."
  • On if he thinks that moment will be too big to overcome: "I don't. One of the errors that I made was in not being prepared. You know, I was a little arrogant and that had as much to do with my demise as a candidate as forgetting a third agency of government."
  • On if "Oops" will be in his obituary: "I don't think so. It is great political satire and comedy, but it won't be on the obituary."
