"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

CPAC 2013 - Governor Rick Perry

Texas Gov. Rick Perry took a shot at his former GOP presidential primary opponent, saying that Mitt Romney’s presidential loss says nothing about conservatism because Romney isn’t a conservative.

“The popular media narrative is that this country has shifted away from conservative ideals, as evidenced by the last two presidential elections. That’s what they say,” Perry said. “That might be true if Republicans had actually nominated conservative candidates in 2008 and 2012.”

Perry said the White House is engaging in a politically craven effort to make the sequester look worse than it is, including releasing prisoners and closing the White House to tourists. He said the result is a deceiving “portrait of pain.”

“What we are getting is a lot of hysteria,” Perry said. “We’re getting a lot of hysteria from a president more concerned about the next election than saving Social Security or Medicare.”
