In an interview with Hannity yesterday, Perry continued his demands that Obama send the National Guard into his state to defend the border, which is perhaps the first time in a long while that a southern-state governor demanded a president send troops into his state. He also put a special emphasis on dismissing all the border plans that do not involve sending troops to presumably shoot at the people trying to cross the border; he doesn't care what the solution is, so long as the solution involves lots of people with guns.
God help us, next thing you know we're going to have John McCain demanding air strikes on migrant kids. And the House will be declaring that our new War On Tiny Refugees will of course be exempt from budget constraints because anything with "war" in it is automatically free.
Not a lot of tools in that Republican toolbox, though the picture above shows three of them.
