Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, in predicting that the country will opt for a “results-oriented executive” in 2016, dealt President Obama quite the backhanded compliment while in New Hampshire Thursday.

He said that while GOP voters shouldn’t choose a “critic in chief,” the nation is ready to move past eight years of “this young, very attractive, amazing orator, junior U.S. senator.”

“I don’t think they’re going to go there,” Mr. Perry said, The Associated Press reported. “They’re going to go to a tested, results-oriented executive who has a record of accomplishment.”

Mr. Perry, who is trying to rebound after a disappointing 2012 run for president, said he’ll make a decision on 2016 in May or June.

“The greatest years of America are in front of us,” he said, challenging the crowd to “stand up for freedom.”

“Are you ready to send that message across the country?” he said. “Are you ready to make people know that New Hampshire is about living free or dying?”
