In Iowa Wednesday, Rick Perry took aim at President Obama for not properly feting the end of the Iraq war as the troops returned home last week. CNN reports, Perry told a crowd gathered that “This president wouldn’t welcome home our many heroes with a simple parade in their honor.”
Maybe it’s because this war isn’t popular with the Democrats, I don’t know... But Mr. President, our soldiers come first. It comes before party politics. We need to welcome our soldiers home. Give them that parade. Give them that pat on the back.
