WOW This is HILARIOUS!!! Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and President Obama really need to get a room.
This year it seems that Lt. Gov Patrick has done a good job of telling Obama that the federal government doesn’t mess with Texas! Their last back and forth was in May when the Lt. Gov. told Obama he could ‘keep his 30 pieces of silver and that Texas wouldn’t be blackmailed by Obama’. It was a response to President Obama’s new guidance to schools on transgender bathrooms.
Patrick wouldn’t compromise then and won’t compromise now as he chastises Obama on handling the recent massacre of Texas police officers.
He talks to him like he’s a child… asking him not to be so quick in condemning law enforcement before all the facts are known. In attending a farce of a town hall on Thursday Lt. Gov Patrick accused accused Obama of being “too quick to condemn the police”. It was nice.
BizPacReview reported on Patrick’s speech:
“I’m concerned that police officers across the country, they know you support law enforcement, of course. But do they really in their heart feel like you’re doing everything you can to protect their lives?” he asked Obama.
Patrick reminded the president of his words the previous day when he had said “tensions between the police and between black America” would only get worse.
“Words matter. Your words matter much more than mine,” Patrick said. “I would ask you to consider being careful when there is an incident of not being too quick to condemn the police without due process and until the facts are known.”
Patrick also took a moment to ask Obama “to consider putting on the blue lights” upon his return to the White House. “You’ve done it for other groups. Let’s send a strong message,” he said, referring to Obama ignoring police requests to illuminate the building in blue light as a show of support and respect.
It’s sad really that there are few adults in Government and hardly any in DC. Glad to see Texas stand up and teach Obama how to be a leader but I’m afraid it’s too little, too late for Obama.
