Some of his quotes from Business Week article, November 20, 2010, during the Republican Governor’s Conference in San Diego, California:

*“They’ve got to stop all these government-knows-best programs,” he said in the interview. “Quit telling us which light bulbs to have in our house, or which cars to drive, or how much salt we can put on our processed food. Why don’t you do all the things that are constitutionally directed, like defend our border?”…

*“I saw people who were really scared for the first time in their lives that their government was so out of touch with them,…” …

*Perry said that Representative John Boehner, a fellow Republican expected to be House majority leader in the new Congress, should push the idea of sending federal Medicaid grants to states without procedural requirements. That would halve health-care costs,…

*“You have to give those people who are paying the bulk of the taxes a reason to stay in the state,” he said. “There’s going to be some difficult days for California.” …

*Perry said New Mexico’s governor-elect, Suzanna Martinez, a fellow Republican, approached him in San Diego and said, “I’m going to steal your jobs.”…  Said Perry, “She gets it.”…

*“Texans elect folks like me,” he writes in his book. “The kind of guy who goes jogging in the morning, packing a Ruger .380 with laser sights and loaded with hollow-point bullets and shoots a coyote that is threatening his daughter’s dog.”
