Texas Governor Rick Perry toured the U.S.-Mexico border today without President Barack Obama, who ultimately decided to return to Washington, D.C. this afternoon after making a pit stop for BBQ in Austin. Perry's office says he took a boat ride down the Rio Grande river and a chopper tour of the Rio Grande Valley with the Texas Department of Public Safety this afternoon. Meanwhile, President Obama spoke at a Democratic Party fundraiser, met with someone who wrote him a letter and gave remarks on the economy before stopping by Franklin Barbeque, where he dropped more than $300 on food for his staff and people he cut in line.

You know, I can’t help but feel that RIck Perry detests Obama. He says all the PC things, but his facial expressions tell a different story.

He's easy to detest. I can't even stand to hear him speak.

It’s a shame he didn’t choke on his BBQ. Or that someone didn’t “season” his meat. No, I don’t mean Reggie....

I offered to pay the meal for the people who he cut in front of line, and then found out he did not have enough money, so he mooched off one of his flunkies to pay the bill.

There’s an analogy in there, hmm?

Zzzzzzz. Do your job, Perry.

YOU can stop this invasion, Governor.

Calling on the federal govt to deploy the National Guard when you posses the power to deploy your State Guard does not absolve of your duty. Neither does touring the border.

Read 140 and other posts throughout

Texas is using Texas money to do what the federal government is suppose to, including recently adding $1.3 million per week to help border patrol. I hear everyone saying Texas secure your borders but I don’t hear anyone saying our state will help pay for it, this can not be put on the shoulders of the southern border state tax payers, it is a federal responsibility first.

“Surprise visit”...right. Translation: Preplanned photo op, coordinated, organized, and dry runned weeks in advance. Everything about Obama is phony.

Good points...

Lots of whining and posturing from Perry...but takes no action

Of course, Perry had no problem with opening the border with the North American Union and the NAFTA Superhighway
Perry is, and always has been, an Open Borders liberal

Rick keeps saying that “Obama is inept or it’s SOMETHING ELSE”. I love that line!

I wait everyday for something to this effect and it never happens.

It’s OK for libs/Dems to have an epiphany and convert to conservatives/Pubs (e.g., Ronald Reagan). But it seems to me Perry’s conversion was more one of convenience than belief. Like the Bush clan, I believe he’s an amnesty-no border fence-mass alien influx adherent.

Yes, Rick Perry is just posturing...and covering his hind quarters for his past Amnesty support

This is the same Rick Perry who pushed and signed into law giving Illegal Aliens in Texas in-state college tuition...in effect “free college tuition” as the in-state classification allows Illegals to access all forms of govt aid

Perry is not really the good guy. He is as big an Open Borders-Amnesty Liberal as Obama...see his No American Union nonsense

Thanks for welcome

Oh come on, exaggerate much? The in state NOT free tuition that Perry suggested was only for the children who had been raised in Texas, graduated from a Texas highschool and were in the process of getting their US citizenship. These kids were here to stay why not let them educated themselves and be productive citizens.

Their illegal parents did not come here because they knew about instate college tuition for their kids, they had never even considered college, ever.

Franklin BBQ was always going to be high on the list of Jug Ears places to eat with the peasants. I predicted this!! So the low-info voters think he is one of them....Franklin is v well known and "in" these days

There’s no love lost. Obama and Perry have butted heads from the gitgo. Perry has stood up more than any other governor again’st Oblunder. The EPA has really come after Texas as well as Obama refused to declare am emergency over those terrible fires a couple years ago and Texas got no FEMA money. He gives Rick the finger every chance he gets.

Seriously Rick Perry strikes me as a mature adult and a red blooded American man who would probably just like to beach slap the little POS.
