AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says he thought President Barack Obama's speech on the debt ceiling debate was condescending, saying he heard the president tell Americans they "just wouldn't understand" the issue.

The potential Republican presidential candidate spoke Tuesday at a ceremonial bill signing in Amarillo.

Perry says he was stunned Obama "would think that Americans aren't paying attention" to the debate. In his speech, Obama said the term "debt ceiling" is one most people outside of Washington have probably never heard of before.

Perry says he's continuing to evaluate whether to jump into the race for the Republican presidential nomination. He says he is getting calls from across the country to get into the race, but vows that he's "not going to do something to embarrass myself."
