Letter: A bigger embarrassment

On July 29, Jennifer Horn, chairwoman of the New Hampshire Republican Party, and Rick Perry held a highly publicized conference call to jointly criticize Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and President Obama for being soft on border security.

This was the day after Scott Brown unveiled a new ad attacking Shaheen and Obama on the same issue and made it look like Perry was endorsing Brown, to the delight of Horn and the state GOP.

Perry told us, “I would be embarrassed if I were in New Hampshire, and I had a United States senator who was so with the president on this issue that they’re putting the citizens in jeopardy by not securing the border. That to me is the most embarrassing issue that’s out there.”

I am sure today that Horn and the rest of the New Hampshire GOP would agree it is the second most embarrassing issue that’s out there.
