‘You Got a Name?’: Feisty Rick Perry Demands Politico Journalist 'Out His Source\

"Don't come to me and say 'respond to this.' You're either not willing or you don't have a name."

Having recently published a fistful of stories that claim Gov. Rick Perry’s campaign has fallen into disarray and that his staffers are blaming one another, Politico's Mike Allen tried to get the Texas governor to comment on the reports.

However, Allen appears to be unprepared for what happens next.

"Governor, some of your staffers have told us that you ran this as a gubernatorial campaign for too long and you didn't look big enough, get big enough, fast enough," said Mike Allen. "Do you take some responsibility?"

"I don't know who you're talking to," said a slightly smirking Perry, "So I can't respond unless you give me a name."

See the confrontation below:

"These are members of your staff," Allen replied.

"You got a name?"

"Who say --"

"You got a name?"

[awkward silence]

"You won't listen to --" Allen tried once again.

"You got a name?" Perry repeated.


"If you don't have a name to tell me this individual said this, then I don't take that as a corroborating source," Perry flatly stated.
