Rick Perry says he wants to be the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses.

At Thursday's debate in Iowa — the last before voters in the state vote Jan. 3 — Perry said that, like the Denver Broncos quarterback, he's been underestimated.

Perry has struggled in the debates, and in one he paused awkwardly, unable to remember the third federal agency he would dismantle if elected.

But he said Thursday night he's, in his words, "kind of getting to where I like these debates."

Perry said if he becomes the GOP nominee, he and Democratic President Barack Obama "will get it on."

“I’m kinda getting to where I like these debates,” Perry said. “I hope Obama and I debate a lot. I’ll get there early. We will get it on, and we will talk about our differences.”

“There are a lot of folks who said Tim Tebow wouldn’t be a very good NFL quarterback. That he doesn’t have the right throwing mechanisms, or he’s not playing the game right.

"He won two national championships and that looked pretty good, and we were the national champions in job creation back in Texas...I am the Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses.”
