Perry Hits Obama For Not Honoring Returning Soldiers
Hispanic Business ^ | Dec 28, 2011 | Rod Boshart

Texas Gov. Rick Perry hammered President Obama's energy and immigration policies Wednesday and berated him for not holding a welcome-home parade to salute the U.S. soldiers who served during the war in Iraq over the past nine years.

"It really disturbs me that nearly after nine years of war in Iraq that this president wouldn't welcome home our many heroes with a simple parade in their honor,"

...

We need to welcome our soldiers home -- give them that parade, give them that pat on the back, tell them thank you for the freedom that we have in this country,"

There was a small ceremony at Dulles, but only a handful of troops were involved.

I agree with Perry. The Kenyan Muslim treats our troops like PR props, when he acknowledges them at all.

No, actually Perry is wrong on this.

The best thing that worthless scumbag Zero can do is stay as far away from our troops as possible. To paraphrase Patton,

“I won’t have these brave men here who have been shot at seeing a yellow bastard sitting here crying”

I agree with you. No man should give a “shout out” when troops have been killed on American soil by a muslim and he calls it an “incident”. Barry hates our military period.

I haven’t been paying too much to the news this week, so I may have missed Perry announcing a parade he’s arranged for our returning Texas Iraq veterans. Then again, maybe I didn’t.

If he’s going to call 0bama on this, he dang sure better make sure his own house is in order. What better way to show up 0bama.

But then, Perry is, after all, an opportunist.

(If you get the impression I’m not enamored with my governor, you’re right.)
