Rick Perry packing his bags for Japan, China

Gov. Rick Perry will continue to build his foreign policy credentials with a trip next week to Tokyo and Beijing.

On Monday, he is scheduled to address a sold-out luncheon of the American Chamber of Commerce-Japan. He then travels to China where he will meet with business leaders and officials in Beijing. His last stop is at the World Economic Forum – a gathering he also attended in 2010 – in Tianjin before returning to Texas next Saturday.

Later this fall, the governor also has plans to visit England, Poland, Croatia, Romania and the Baltics.

Perry has made presidential race headlines over the past few months by criticizing President Obama and making bold statements on foreign relations. In July, he ordered the Texas National Guard to the border to assist law enforcement and has brought Republican gatherings to their feet with the line, “If the federal government does not do its constitutional duty to secure the southern border of the United States, the state of Texas will do it!”

2. world economic forum ?

For a guy who got a D in economics at the university. He also plans to visit the baltics. Perhaps he can go see whats going on on the ukraine-russia border and report back to us from a russian goulag.

4. Y'know, Rick, the North Koreans need Jesus in their lives

And you, sir, are just the man to bring Him to them.

While you're in Beijing, I suggest you take a day trip to Pyongyang with a steamer trunk full of Korean-language Bibles, and stand right in front of the Revolution Museum handing them out. The authorities there will LOVE you for it!
