Perry Applauds Cruz: GOP Should Have 'Laid the Wood to the President'

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Sunday suggested that Republicans had not gone far enough in attacking President Barack Obama over his health care reform law -- even though the party had forced a government shutdown and threatened to default on the nation's debt.

In an interview that aired on ABC's This Week, Perry insisted to reporter Jeff Zeleny that he "certainly enjoyed" Cruz' 21-hour Senate speech attempting to defund the Affordable Care Act.

"It would have been wiser for us to have laid the wood to the president -- so to speak -- in the sense of being able to call him out on this, let it become an issue of, 'Mr. President, you own this,'" Perry explained.

1. Perry had been "laying his wood" into the keesters of the good people of Texas for years.
