While some GOP officials appeared conciliatory in their remarks following Tuesday’s election, former presidential hopeful Rick Perry came out swinging at President Barack Obama before the helium had even left the Romney/Ryan campaign balloons.

“The American people have given President Obama a chance to start over. He can take steps this time to govern responsibly,” said a statement from the Texas governor. “He can work with, not against, Republicans in Congress and governors around the nation. He can put an end to his reckless disregard for our rule of law and spare our nation another long, painful and expensive four years for American families, taxpayers and employers.”

Perry, who is reportedly eyeing another run for the White House in 2016, commended former rival Mitt Romney for a “disciplined, focused, and hard-fought” campaign against Obama and he said that Americans should still push for spending cuts and the repeal of the president’s unpopular healthcare law.

One of the longest-serving governors in U.S. history, Perry briefly held the status of front-runner during the recent GOP primary race before suspending his campaign. He said recently that he is likely to seek re-election in 2014.

“We must hold his and Congress’ feet to the fire to once and for all cut spending, repeal Obamacare and withdraw federal encroachment into state decision-making and personal liberties,” Perry said. “Our nation’s long-term prosperity and security absolutely depends on it.”

In the meantime, Perry urged states to promote “common-sense policies of smaller government, lower taxes and restrained spending that create jobs and prosperity for their citizens” as an example for the federal government.
