Texas Governor Perry Shuns White House Offer To Chat With Nappy The Wonder Skunk

Wants A One-On-One With Barry

 After not snaring time with the president, Gov. Rick Perry has turned down an offer to meet with Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano and a top adviser to President Barack Obama on border issues.
A governor's spokeswoman said Gov. Rick Perry was denied a meeting with Obama when the president visits Fort Bliss on Tuesday.

Perry spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger said the Republican governor had asked to meet with the president on Tuesday to discuss border security. Cesinger said Monday that White House aides said the president would not be available for such a meeting.
White House spokeswoman Moira Mack responded Tuesday by saying the Obama administration has directed unprecedented resources to the border since March 2009. Mack also said Perry declined a meeting with Napolitano and John Brennan, the president's top homeland security aide in the White House.

Perry was one of the first people the president saw when he stepped from Air Force One during an Austin visit on Aug. 9. On that occasion, Perry hand-delivered a letter to Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, warning about the "dire threat" from drug violence along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Perry is correct in wanting to talk to the man where the buck stops, and not be forced to listen to the glib meanderings of an incompetent lackey such as Nappy the Tonno (Italian for "fish").

Problem is, Barry doesn't do one on one very well, and is embarrassed to address anyone other than a sworn to secrecy minion. Which is why he plays golf when he should be extemporaneously addressing the nation on so very many issues.

In recent..hell in all my memory...I can't remember a president refusing to have a sit down with a Governor. Probably due to Barry never having actually governed anything and unaware of what grownups do when they go to work each day.
