Ames, Ia. – A packed coffee house where Rick Perry spoke this afternoon turned into a bit of a ruckus that left the candidate bolting to his vehicle after several Iowans screamed questions about his comments regarding gay and lesbian families.
“Why do you hate gays so much,” one screamed as Perry wrapped up a rather typical campaign stop and avoided taking any questions from the audience.
“Go back to Texas” another screamed from the back of Cafe Diem coffee shop in Ames.
Perry soon left the coffee shop and was on his way out when a young boy asked if he would give him an autograph. Perry gave him a signature and bolted for his vehicle.
Got to “head back to the land,” Perry, who is returning to Texas today, said as he jumped into the vehicle.
