Obama Takes Shots at Perry, GOP Debates

WOODSIDE, Calif. (AP) — President Barack Obama is swiping at Texas Gov. Rick Perry, criticizing him as "a governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change."

Obama also poked at the audience reactions at recent GOP presidential debates, singling out those who cheered at the prospect of someone dying because he didn't have health insurance — and those who booed a gay service member.

The president said "that's not reflective of who we are."

He made the comments Sunday at a fundraiser at the Silicon Valley home of John Thompson, chairman of Symantec Corp.
