Perry Camp Responds After Obama Uses Texas Fires as Political Fodder
Barack Obama mocked Governor Rick Perry and Texas last night in a fundraiser speech for the recent Texas fires.
He said it was climate change.
Today Texas governor Rick Perry’s campaign responded to the president’s outrageous attacks on the governor at a fundraiser last night in California.
The Politico reported:
A Rick Perry spokesman pushed back on President Obama’s use of the Texas wildfires in a fundraising speech last night to criticize the GOP frontrunner as a climate-change critic.
“It’s outrageous President Obama would use the burning of 1,500 homes, the worst fires in state history, as a political attack,” Perry spokesman Ray Sullivan emailed this morning. “This from a president whose nation is financially suffering and his solution is taking more money away from families by raising taxes on families and small businesses.”
For the record… This is the same president who refused to declare a national emergency disaster zone in the Lone Star state in April despite wildfires raging across 2 million acres that month… Even after federal employees started one of the fires.
