Rick Perry used an interesting construction to describe his struggling campaign for president.

On FOX News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked the Texas governor, "You got in late without sufficient planning, without sufficient thought about what it would take to run for president, quite frankly without sufficient preparation for debates?"

"Not at all," Perry replied. "I think we had bumps and grinds, but most campaigns have bumps and grinds.

Wednesday morning we'll find out whether or not who was right."

Perry is currently polling towards the end of the pack in Iowa, ahead of no one but Michele Bachmann.
