Gov. Perry, working hard to make Texans look even more ignorant
The governor takes after his predecessor in petulance.
AUSTIN — Republican Gov. Rick Perry refused to honor United Nations Day, even as President Bush signed a U.N. proclamation, because doing so would be inconsistent with the governor's views, his spokeswoman said.
In his proclamation, Bush also had urged governors to "honor the observance of United Nations Day," which was celebrated Sunday around the world to commemorate the date the organization was founded in 1945.
But Perry wants everyone to know--even though he would be no one without Bush, Bush is not the boss of him.
"It was a conscious decision to not issue the proclamation out of concern over the lack of support the U.N. has shown for United States efforts to bring freedom and democracy to the world," Perry spokeswoman Kathy Walt said.
I guess they forgot to brief Perry on the last-ditch attempts to quit trashing everything that most Americans believe in.
