Rick Perry, the new face of
the GOP opposition?

Washington Post, by Greg Sargent

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/10/2014 1:59:19 PM

As the political war over minors crossing the border continues to escalate, Texas Governor Rick Perry met with President Obama yesterday and demanded that he beef up border patrols and seek changes to federal law that would expedite the removal of arriving minors. For his part, Obama prodded Perry to rally Congressional Republicans to pass the $3.7 billion in funding to expedite removals and provide care the president has asked for. In a good piece, Amie Parnes of the Hill observes that Perry “has seized the spotlight in recent days to become the national face of opposition to President Obama’s

I love it when one hack reporter finds wisdom in another hack reporters writing. It´s all Republicans fault, just ask Jackie Calmes. She´s smart, she writes for the NY Times. If Obama added a surge of Guard troops to his proposal it would probably pass. Perry should continue to attack. It´s not political.

Not yet. What did he actually accomplish yesterday? He still met the Emperor on the tarmac. Yes he vented a bit at a group meeting, but the Emperor simply brushed him off.

Perry may be the face of the TX GOP, but the GOP is no longer the "opposition". Let him join Sarah in calling for the Emperor´s impeachment, and we might reconsider.

Perry was diplomatic---a sitting governor doesnt attack the President. He said in as classy a way possible what the problem was. I think he handled it well, as best you can when dealing with an anachronistic 60´s ideologue

Yes to all your post #4 BUT
Gov. Perry is wrong to ask Obe to call out the National Guard. He not Obama is the Texas guard CIC. As W learned in Katrina the feds have no power to engage the National Guard unless they are called by the Governor to duty under the US Military.
Therefore Gov. Perry should confer with the other states enduring this invasion to join him in bringing in their guards.
Most GOP´s 30 Governors would act and it´s too bad CA. has Brown.
As to Obe countering with riot forces or the Fed military he could make the worst mistake of his life.
Note the black community is now voicing their anger toward the ONE over this mess.

If ANY GOPer was serious about this, including Rick Perry, they´d go to the border (Arizona, Texas and New Mexico) and do to Obama what Reagan did to Gorbachev. "Mr. Obama, do your constitutional duty, and secure this border." Instead Perry plays the sucker at his "meeting", Abbott is disappeared, the Texas congressional delegation champing at the bit to cross Perry´s hand with some of the $3.7 billion, Flyboy Rep. Jim Bridenstine is run off at the gate of a relocation center by a tee-shirt wearing "HHS official" at Fort Sill... What a bi-partisan joke this is on the American people who believe our sovereignty matters more than open borders. Shameful, just shameful.

I like Perry a lot. He covers social, economic and law and order issues in a consistent conservative manner. He has shown effective leadership of a big state for a long time.

I oppose impeachment at this time. The American people have not suffered enough yet under Obama and the Democrats to get it.

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

Islamic State militants stormed a Syrian airbase over the weekend, routing the remaining elements of the country’s army from northern Raqqah province and reportedly seizing a cache of shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles. The seizure of Tabqa air base, while not the first installation of its type to fall to militants, highlights the Islamic State’s gains in the region and the group’s continued pilfering of advanced military equipment, particularly the surface-to-air missile systems known as MANPADS, short for Man Portable Air Defense Systems.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio sent out this bitter attack on Barack Obama this morning. Arpaio accuses Barack Obama of leading an attack on the United States. The popular sheriff says President Obama is “rewarding criminals.” Our country is under attack. And Barack Obama is the aggressor. That’s right. Our own President has overseen the release of thousands of illegal immigrants…hundreds of whom are convicted criminals – even felons, which are flooding into America. Every day you read the newspaper or turn on the news, there is something tragic happening, something Obama says is beyond our control. But I must tell you:

AQUINNAH, Mass.- On the western tip of Martha´s Vineyard, bright clay cliffs and a red brick lighthouse draw visitors as they pile out of cars and tour buses and head up to this town´s scenic overlook. But the leaders of the Aquinnah Wampanoags, the federally recognized American Indian tribe whose ancestors first inhabited the island, envision a new destination. They´ve proposed transforming an unfinished tribal community center a few miles inland into a high-stakes bingo and poker hall filled with electronic betting machines. The idea horrifies some long-term visitors, residents and even tribal members, who see it as incongruous with the

Ask people to name a ranch in Texas and for some the answer would be Southfork, made famous by the TV show "Dallas." But the name they probably should know is Waggoner Ranch, created only four years after the Lone Star state became a state, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner. It´s the largest single ranch under one fence in the country -- some 510,000 acres. And for the first time since 1849, the property is going up for sale with a price tag of $725 million. Some fear the cowboy culture that defines the property could be headed for

According to the New York Times national editor who helped put together today’s piece about Michael Brown’s final weeks, there was some missing context in the outrage that has surrounded the line that calls the slain teenager “no angel.” As Alison Mitchell noted in a conversation with the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, the words were a call back to the story’s lead, which mentioned Brown sighting an angel in storm clouds passing above his head. Below is the passage that has drawn sharp criticism Monday: Michael Brown, 18, due to be buried on Monday, was no angel, with public records

An ´all-clear´ has been issued at Fort Lee after an active shooter was reported this morning at the Virginia military base. Early reports say a female soldier shot herself, and it´s unclear what condition she is in. An Army official previously told Fox News that the lockdown was started by a ´disgruntled´ female shooter who is now in custody. According to Fort Lee´s verified Twitter account, the base was put into lockdown around 9:20am and personnel there told to enact active shooter protocols. The incident was reported at the Combined Arms Support Command Headquarters, building 5020, according to officials. About

Transgender Americans seeking gender reassignment surgeries are finding relief through Obamacare, The Daily Beast reported on Monday. Federal laws banning health insurance discrimination against transgender people, combined with Obamacare´s ban on denying coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, have paved a path for transgender patients who wish to make the transition from one gender to another. "The federal anti-discrimination regulations have yet to be written, but California insurance regulators have said that companies must treat transgender patients the same as other patients," reports The Daily Beast.

The Obama administration announced this weekend that it will be sending not one, but three, officials to attend the funeral of Michael Brown on Monday. President Barack Obama is sending three White House officials to the funeral service of the Missouri teenager whose death in a police shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, has sparked days of racial unrest. (Snip) The decision would be highly questionable as is, but when compared to the White House’s presence at, say, the funerals of Maj. Gen. Harold Greene or British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, it’s deplorable.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

WASHINGTON— Taxes? Who wants to think about taxes around Labor Day? But if you count on your tax refund and you´re one of the millions getting tax credits to help pay health insurance premiums under President Barack Obama´s law, it´s not too early. Here´s why: If your income for 2014 is going to be higher than you estimated when you applied for health insurance, then complex connections between the health law and taxes can reduce or even eliminate your tax refund next year. Maybe you´re collecting more commissions in an improving economy. Or your spouse got a better job. It

Billionaire liberal activist Tom Steyer is dumping millions into campaign ads this year, attacking Republican lawmakers he deems unfriendly to the environment. But Steyer´s colorful and sometimes bizarre advertisements -- the latest of which shows Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst in the pocket of creepy cigar-chomping business tycoons -- are drawing mixed reviews. "These ads are the political equivalent of Miley Cyrus´ ´twerking.´ Light on substance, heavy on camp and self-indulgence.

The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there. With even his media praetorian guard appalled, the golf outing is sparking a wider understanding that Obama is hollow, empty of the routine qualities Americans expect from

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.
