Now That He Needs Disaster Relief, Barack Obama Is Rick Perry’s New Best Friend

Now that he needs disaster relief after the fertilizer plant explosion in West, TX, Gov. Rick Perry is full of praise for, and thanks to President Obama.

Here is the video of Gov. Perry from ABC News:

During his press conference on the situation in West, Perry said, “President Obama called from Air Force One as he was en route to Boston,” Perry said. “We greatly appreciate his call, and his gracious offer of support, of course, and the quick turnaround of the emergency declaration that will be forthcoming, and his offer of prayers.”

Now that Perry needs something, President Obama isn’t such a bad guy.

It’s almost like Perry wants us to forget his 2011 presidential campaign ad where he accused the president of waging a war on religion.

Fast forward to 2013, and Perry thanked Obama for his prayers. So much for that Obama war on religion. I guess that means that when a Republican needs immediate help from the federal government, President Obama gets to be a Christian. Gov. Perry has also accused President Obama of allowing a “jailbreak of illegal immigrants,” and said Obama disgusted him on gun control.

Gov. Perry has railed for years against Obama and “big government,” but his tune completely changed when his state needed federal government help after the tragedy in West.

Rick Perry’s 180 on President Obama reveals the truth about the Republican calls for shrinking the federal government and handing more power to the states.

It won’t work.

States need the federal government, because sometimes fertilizer plants blow up, or natural disasters hit, or the economy crashes. The whole party like its the Articles of Confederation mentality of many on the right doesn’t work in the real world.

In the real world after half of the town of West, Texas blew up, Gov. Rick Perry needed President Barack Obama’s help. That is the way our system of government is supposed to work. Despite the flood of verbal political sewage that flowed out of Perry’s mouth since Obama was elected, the president was there when he was needed to immediately respond with help.

President Obama is doing what he is supposed to do as president, but Rick Perry’s cozying up to the president revealed the hypocrisy of the right’s Obama bashing, and what a disaster their plan to shrink the size of the federal government really would be.

Like most other elected Republicans, Rick Perry demonized President Obama until he needed something. In true hypocrite fashion, his worst enemy is now his best friend.
