@1:12 Perry: Last night was one of the most interesting exchanges—I'll put it in that word—between the two supposed frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. And as Newt sat on the sideline, if you will, and watched them, as you used the word, savage each other. I looked at it and as they went on and on, they became smaller and smaller on the stage. And there were times when Newt was absolutely Churchillian.

@5:30 Ingraham: Hey, Governor, when you watched this last night, did you take away this impression that some are taking away—and I stated this a couple days ago on the show—that your Texas compatriot there, Ron Paul, seems to be guarding the flank for Romney. He seemed to go in at various junctures and either amplify Romney's points or try to take Santorum out at the knees that clearly benefit the would-be frontrunner Mitt Romney. Did you get the sense that there's an unspoken alliance there?

Perry: I don't know whether there is an alliance there or not, but that's been the case all through the debates, all twenty of them I might add. That Ron Paul and Mitt Romney had a really interesting partnership—let us call it.

@7:08: Perry: When the candidates were introduced, and that's always a good baseline for the support in the room, without a doubt Mitt had the greatest support in that room. But during the debate and I think you would agree with this, as you analyzed—if they just had a meter, an applause meter, Newt by far had the best response from the audience.

@7:52 Perry: Frankly there were some moments for Mitt that were cumbersome from a crowd standpoint, particularly during the last question when he was asked about the misconception about yourself. When he testily came back and said, "hey look. You ask the questions. I'll answer like I want." There was an audible "oooo" from the crowd

@11:34 Ingraham: Were you high on God? Is that what was going on?

Perry: Every day.

Ingraham: Were you high on God at that moment, when you were giving that speech?

Perry: I'll tell you what. It's really interesting how the media from time to time want to decide what is going on inside of your head, and—

Ingraham: But that's your campaign person in New Hampshire. That's not the media. She said you were on a religious high after the meeting. That's fine with me that you're on a religious high. I think that's kind of cool, but is that a correct characterization?

Perry: Oh. I think it's an appropriate reflection of who I am from the standpoint of—I try to be on a religious high every day. I mean if people really understand what faith's all about. I mean listen. God is in control of your life, and you just go on out there and do the best you can. And it'll all turn out in the way He's got it planned.
