Perry was out of Texas the 11th and 12th and could not make a personal appearance at Cowboy Stadium or in Austin. His itinerary does not indicate any urgency requiring him to be out of state, thus allowing him to reschedule and attend instead of sending his wife Anita. Is this friendship? Over 7,000 people attended the memorial service before a motorcade headed to Austin from Arlington. Sarah Pallin, her husband and family members canceled events to attend, traveling from Alaska. Many others followed suit. Kyle’s family knows who their friends really are.
The President of The United States, Barrack Obama, has still to comment on Chris Kyle’s death. He had a great opportunity during his State Of The Union address Tuesday night the 12th, following Kyle’s burial earlier that day, to pay tribute with a gesture of some sort to someone who sacrificed so much to save so many. What a friend to someone who saved so many soldiers’ lives.
It didn’t take long, the next day in fact, Feb.12, for Obama to make a statement on the death of a drug addict, Whitney Houston, and honor the request for flags to fly half staff across the country.
Perry was right behind. What a choice! Drug addict versus military hero.
I have spent the better part of two days calling Rick Perry’s office, (512) 463-1826, and getting the real run around. Each person I spoke to, I identified myself, asked the questions I needed answered and explained I would be sending “Letters to the Editor” regarding my concerns to over 42 newspapers throughout the U.S. I also went to www.governor.state.tx.us/contact/ and filled out the form with my info and comments. The only words uttered from Perry’s office were: “Kyle was not an active duty military person” or “someone will get back to you.” I guess you know what I know – nothing.
