The brash businessman said he was proud of himself when a visibly annoyed Obama announced he'd released his Hawaiian long-form birth certificate in order to put the boots to an issue he called "silliness."
On that front, anyway, Perry agreed with Obama in the Parade interview.
"It doesn't matter," he said. "He's the president of the United States. He's elected. It's a distractive issue."
I can see you disagree with Perry too. We can just add it to the list of Americans such as John McCain whose opinion you consider far less valuable than Dentist/Lawyer/Real Estate agent Orly Taitz.
The real harm is to our children. As long as we remain suspicious of the wrong people, predators will continue to have free reign to abuse innocent children. If they remain free from scrutiny because everyone else is focusing on gays and lesbians, more young lives will continue to be shattered and more parents will suffer the agonizing heartache of learning that they trusted someone who destroyed their child’s future.
