Gov. Rick Perry Declines Obama's Invite ~ Thank God For Gov. Perry's Response!!

Perry declines Obama's invite

Governor Rick Perry declined an invitation to greet Obama in El Paso for his speech on amnesty.

Last week the Governor Perry blasted the Obama Administration for neglecting the wildfires in Texas.

Rick Perry has declined the White House’s request that he greet President Obama when Air Force One lands in Texas on Tuesday, the Republican governor’s office says.

“We did try to arrange something with the White House,” Lucy Nashed, a spokeswoman for Perry, told POLITICO. “They asked us if we wanted to meet him out on the tarmac in El Paso, but we weren’t able to work anything out, based on the fact that it’s probably going to be a 10-minute greeting.”

Perry, who met Obama at the airport when the president traveled to Austin in August, accused the administration two weeks ago of denying aid to his state to help recover from wildfires.

Wild Thing's comment........

I am so glad he declined! Thank God!

Our Gov. here in Florida did not decline when Obama came here and I wish he had.

Listened to that pos yesterday. Sure did not sound like much of a crowd was in attendance and noted that cameras never showed any of the crowd?
