RICK PERRY: Refuses To Shake Obama’s Hand On Tarmac, Here’s Why RP’s Pissed

Published on July 8, 2014

Texans don’t play and here’s a great example of what a true governor would do given the current crisis on the Texas border.  Check out Perry’s snubbing of the progressives’ glory boy, Barack Hussein Obama.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) won’t be on hand to greet President Barack Obama when Air Force One lands in Austin on Wednesday.

The governor’s office says the White House extended an invitation to Perry to meet Obama on the tarmac when he arrives for Democratic fundraisers in Dallas and Austin. However, Perry refused the offer, asking instead to meet with Obama in private to discuss the high number of unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months.

“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 Monday in a letter to the president. “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.”
