    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Some 37% of all net new American jobs since the recovery began were created in Texas.

    Using Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data, Dallas Fed economists looked at state-by-state employment changes since June 2009, when the recession ended. Texas added 265,300 net jobs, out of the 722,200 nationwide, and by far outpaced every other state. New York was second with 98,200, Pennsylvania added 93,000, and it falls off from there. Nine states created fewer than 10,000 jobs, while Maine, Hawaii, Delaware and Wyoming created fewer than 1,000. Eighteen states have lost jobs since the recovery began.

    The data are even more notable because they're calculated on a "sum of states" basis, which the BLS does not use because they can have sampling errors. Using straight nonfarm payroll employment, Texas accounts for 45% of net U.S. job creation.

    Anyone who so blatently advocates violating our treaty commitments as Governor Perry has has absolutely no business being the head of state of the United States. If he is the nominee, I will vote third party again.

I think what happened was the voters in the republican party and perhaps some in the middle voted for the candidate who would do less damage to the constitution and i emphasize less damage.
    Sarah Palin is responsible for her own image.

    Re: Rick Perry Enters G.O.P. Race for President

    This article explains exactly why Rick Perry will be the nominee. It sets a trap for the Obama campaign because he and his surrogates will argue (as theyve already started) that the jobs created were minimum wage, etc. In doing so, they are ceeding the point that he has a record of job creation. And thats a bad place for Obama to be.

    Watching Perrys announcement speech yesterday, one thing really struck me - he is a libertarian through and through. Freedom from the shackles of government, regulations, etc. Dare I say a little Reaganesque? That message is going to be a very powerful contrast from Obama.

    Keep in mind that many of the big time donors have been sitting on the sidelines up to this point. I suspect they will jump in head first for Perry now. You can quibble about him being from Texas and sounding like Bush. But, he will fire up the base like no one else in the field. And hes getting 46% against Obama right now with virtually no name recognition.

    With Perry entering, I have gone from probably not voting for anyone to being very interested in Perry.

    Top Obama aide fires preemptive broadside at Perry - Yahoo! News

    US President Barack Obama's top reelection strategist charged Friday that Republican White House hopeful and Texas Governor Rick Perry had "very little to do" with his state's economic success.

    "There's a specific reason that Texas has done so well, and that's because the oil industry has done so well in the last few years, and the military has grown because of the challenges that we have had overseas," said David Axelrod.

    "And so he's been the beneficiary of things that he had very little to do with," Axelrod told ABC television.

    The preemptive strike came one day before Perry, who succeeded George W. Bush in the Texas governor's mansion in 2000, was to formally launch his bid for the Republican nomination to take on Obama in the November 2012 elections.

    To some degree yes she is, but from what I have seen the media had relentlessly attacked her not only on a personal level, but professional and political. No one needs to have a gauge of some sort to measure the attacks, it is as plain as the nose on my face and it is clear where the media stands. Any way it is at the least my own observation I see what I see. As long as character assassination or false character embellishments or protection from criticism is a prerequisite for being elected we will continue to get the trash we elect to office. Non the less the media is only giving the American people what they want, a true telling on we we have become.
