You know you’ve sunk to a new low when Woody Allen calls you a child molester, when Bill Cosby calls you a rapist or when Rick Perry points out that you’re a dumbass.
According to a Dallas local newspaper that endorsed Greg Abbott for governor — I don’t want to embarrass the Dallas Morning News by mentioning them by name — former Gov. Rick Perry said Abbott went too far in questioning U.S. military exercises in Texas.
Last week, Abbott ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor U.S. military operations in Texas. The exercise, dubbed “Jade Helm 15,” is taking place in Texas and several other states and has anti-Obama conspiracy theorists going wild.
Apparently Abbott thinks if things get out of hand, the Texas State Guard can control things.
Perry called the U.S. military “trustworthy” and said Abbott “went too far.”
President Barack Obama should call Abbott and ask him if he’d like the U.S. to move its bases out of Texas. Closing Fort Hood would devastate the Central Texas economy and any state would proudly house an installation of that size.
Fort Hood is the largest U.S. Army base in the country. I’m not military strategist but I’m just kinda wondering here if that just may be one of the reasons military exercises are taking place in Texas.
