Rick Perry to Obama: Come to the border
Politico ^ | July 2, 2014 | KENDALL BREITMAN

Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday that President Barack Obama must visit the Texas southern border to see the immigration crisis for himself.

“If he doesn’t come to the border, I think it’s a real reflection of his lack of concern of what’s really going on there,” Perry said on FOX News’ “FOX and Friends,” noting that Obama is planning to be in Texas next week for fundrasiers.

Of course Obama knows damn well whats going on at the border - he contrived the whole situation.

Obama should come to the border, so he could “accidentally” cross over into Mexico, preferably with a carload of guns.

"If only Obama knew!"

Showing Barry the herds crossing the Rio Grande, trashing the countryside, living in squalor in the catchment facilities will not change him. He's aware of it all, approves of it all. Hell, he arranged it all.

I don't know if Obama himself is smart enough to think this all out, but Jarrett is and is certainly the mastermind behind it...following the plans of Cloward-Piven.

Why would he go down there? There aren’t any good golf courses at the border.

If Mr Perry really thinks that anything might EMBARASS the Great Leader he is sadly.....greatly mistaken.

......aside from being caught accidently crossing the border with a carload of guns

The Republican way is always to tap emotions and take no real action, only symbolic action.

My GOP congressman is a master of emotional speech about our Constitution and form of government, followed by a fundraiser featuring John Boehner.

That shows how political and insincere his statement is.

He is not assuming evil intent in Obama....

So true. Barry doesn’t need to come to the border he knows exactly what is going on. He has orchestrated it.

Ok, either Rick Perry is an idiot, or he has a good plan.

Perry’s plan is to call attention to the empty suit on a national level as a first step and he succeeded. The Gov. knows how to pick his battles and I hope he is president in 2016.

The first thing a state governor might say when ICE dumps hundreds/thousands of illegals on them might be,
“Don’t ship them to one of my sister states! You feds are obligated to `protect the states from invasion’. That’s one of the main reasons *we* made *you.* Do your damned jobs and ship them back where they came from!”

Well, Gov. Perry, nice stunt, but what have you contributed to the wave of illegals with your hispandering?

Deep down Ricky has no problem with illegals pouring across the border.

Remember, Ricky says we have no heart.

If I was Governor I would call up the National Guard and regular citizens. I would seal the border shut.

Some leader with a Warrior mindset needs to throw down the gauntlet to the traitorous Feds.

I am sick and tired of talk, talk, talk from so called leaders on our side. The time to act is NOW!

By 2016 it will be far too late. The illegal hoards are only going to increase over the next 24 months.

Perry is an extremely weak leader. Perry only TALKS.

I cannot recall a single "bold action" this talking head that seriously promotes Liberty and directly confronts our treasonous government.

Perry wants it both ways -- he is a fraud.

If Perry was truly upset over the hoards pouring across the boarder he would "act."

Perry wont act because he believes in his twisted mind that he can "win over" the illegals.

Nobody has funds that he can raise.

His purpose for coming to TX is a fundraiser. I wish they would get a subpoena for one of the laws he had broken and arrest him while he's in TX!

I think you have described him well. Like a lot of the GOPes in DC, he likes to shoot his mouth off and sound tough, but, as we know, talk is cheap.
