Perry: SCOTUS 'Overstepped Its Bounds and Legislated From the Bench'
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry appeared on "Fox and Friends Weekend" today to discuss a wide-range of issues, including the nationwide legalization of gay marriage.
The 2016 Republican presidential candidate said that he's a traditional marriage supporter.
"The Supreme Court in this case overstepped its bounds and legislated from the bench," Perry stated. "As I travel across this country, Americans are talking about how do we get our country back on track, from the stand point of economically, how are you going to create a climate where people truly have a good job and they are worried about the safety of our country and what’s going on abroad."
Perry added that he thinks the decision should have been decided by the states and not the Supreme Court.
"We need to really be thinking about, do we want the Supreme Court to be these legislators in robes?" Perry asked.
Perry also said that he doesn't think President Barack Obama is doing enough to defeat ISIS.
"His stepping back from engagement against ISIS has been a terrible dilemma for our country and I think for the Middle East," Perry stated. "We must have a plan working with our Middle Eastern allies to go in and to eliminate ISIS."
