White to Perry: Show respect to the president

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Democrat Bill White says Gov. Rick Perry isn't showing enough respect to President Barack Obama.

White, during a interview Friday with the online Texas Tribune, says Perry should not be referring to Obama in his TV ads without using his title.

"As a citizen I call him president. President Obama," White said. "Whoever is the commander in chief, whether it be George W. Bush or President Obama, you need to refer to our president as our president."
