Governors Race in Texas - Ad of the Day
Texas Governor Rick Perry uses his tarmac Conference with President Obama as an ad.
During a recent campaign visit to Austin, TX, Texas Governor Rick Perry met President Obama on the tarmac. He requested a few minutes of Obama's time to discuss border issues.
Obama padded Perry's shoulder three times and did not accept the letter. An Obama Aid eventually took the letter. The actual meeting lasted about two minutes.
At the time, although there was not much press coverage, Governor was indignant that President Obama would have time to do a campaign job, but was not ready to discuss border issues.
Governor Rick Perry has taken the incident and made a campaign ad out of it. The ad states that securing the border is Washington's responsibility but that it is Texas/s problem.
He goes on to say that he confronted Barrack Obama with detailed steps to reduce drug cartel violence along the border.
