FULL TITLE: Rick Perry Rejects Obama’s Offer to Shake His Hand on the Tarmac — Here’s the Texas Governor’s Counteroffer

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has reportedly rejected President Barack Obama’s offer to briefly shake hands when Air Force One lands in Austin on Wednesday. Instead, the governor came back with a counteroffer.

“I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,” Perry wrote in a letter to Obama. “I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting to discuss this critical issue.”

When is Perry going to declare a health emergency and quarantine those areas with the illegals?

As Governor of Texas he can do that...it would make it difficult to transport the illegals thru Texas

Perry needs to stop whining and start leading...stop acting like a NAFTA/NAU liberal

I have no sympathy for Perry. He’s using this invasion for political benefit. Maybe he’s the king of running for president again.

I’m sure there are actions Perry could take. Maybe call out the National Guard. Maybe a legal section against the feds. Seems to me all Perry wants to do is talk.

Have a group of Texas Rangers there to shake his hand! Then have the Rangers shackle his hands and feet and haul him off to jail for his treason against our Republic! The lawlessness at the border has to stop!

A handshake from Obama is the kiss of death for Repubs. It will only mean he has you whipped as he takes legislative actions illegally

Really? The “one” actually puts out a feeler to see if the guy whose state he’s destroying wants to shake hands?

I will NEVER vote for that fat slob Chris Christie who not only shook Obama’s hand but HUGGED HIM and gave a photo that went around the country days before the presidential election. It made Obama look like he was actually capable of governing and reaching across the aisle.

Good for Perry.

A handshake " signifies TRUST
It is done by extending your right hand ( strong side, exposing that you hold no armlamant to do harm or injury)
but Obadinga is left-handed
Moose-limbs use the left hand to shake with infidels, as the left hand is used to clean yourself after defecation
How do you trust a chronic liar ?
You don't !!

Maybe after Perry talks with him he will be able to rule out the “inept” possibility and determine that the invasion was intentional, and therefore treasonous.

By the way, has anyone determined the payment that went to Mexico for this? Payments to Central American nations that were then kicked back to Mexico somehow? Funds disguised as something else?

If the GOP plays this right this will be Obama’s equivalent of George Bush flying over Katrina damage. A major crisis and all Obama wants to do, at best, is take a 10,000 foot view of it? The campaign commercials write themselves.

In the spirit of Southern hospitality if Perry does in fact meet the First Muslim, he should shake hands. However, I think Perry should skip the meet altogether. Tell Zero that Perry has to ‘rearrange the icons on his desktop’, which is far more important than wasting time with the current resident of the Tan Hut.

You got one hell of a nerve, Mr. President. We need to discuss issues of great urgency. I do not consider it a prize or reward to touch the hem of your garment!

Oboma is looking for a photo op which will go similar to the one in AZ a few years ago which his sycophant press will play on and on about how those white people just being racist against him and talking down to him. President empty suit cannot have a meeting because he has ability to have an independent thought. His idea of compromise is I talk you listen and agree, period.

Hmmm. What would I do?

"I'm sorry, Mr. Obama, but for your own safety, please do not allow me close enough to break off your arm..."

"...and shove it up your, uh, nose."

He should meet him. As he reaches out his hand, uppercut! Then have the Rangers drags his sorry butt up the stairs by the ankles, throw him back in AF1 and tell the pilot to GTFO of Texas!

Well played. Why be stuck waiting for the photop and talk for 30 mins of him yammering. Come back when you are ready to fix the problem.

Pray America is waking
