AUSTIN (KXAN) - As wildfires continue to wreak havoc across Texas, Gov. Rick Perry is criticizing the Obama administration for its denial late Tuesday of the state’s request for a federal Major Disaster Declaration to assist with the ongoing wildfire season, which has burned more than 2.2 million acres.
Perry says he is "dismayed that this administration has denied Texans the much needed assistance they deserve. It is not only the obligation of the federal government, but its responsibility under law to help its citizens in times of emergency."
Since the wildfire season began in November 2010, Texas has responded to more than 9,000 fires across the state that have destroyed or damaged more than 400 homes.

If the money isnt available then what can you do?
But then there should still be someone to blame for there being no money available but you cant blame one man alone.
