Rick Perry was the first Texas A&M graduate to become Texas Governor. In his folksy Texas drawl, Perry said that Washington has misappropriated too much power from the states. He’s pleased that the new US House read the Constitution on the floor and voted to repeal Obamacare, though.
Perry condemned the Obama administration for failing to secure our nation’s borders. He argued that border security is an “essential” federal government role. He asserted that we should be flying Predator drones over our Mexican border to better protect it.
Perry’s view on Obamacare: “toss out that trainwreck!” He condemns its “Washington-centric approach” and “oppressive mandates”. Perry also wants to simplify the tax code.
He closed by encouraging the audience to continue doing all they can to elect conservative GOP governors. [I certainly wouldn't mind if he was my state's Governor.] Note that Perry is the 47th Governor of Texas, recently elected to his 3rd term. He is the current Chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
