    Yep, Governor "Small Governemnt" Perry has added two government jobs for every one private sector job. Awesome.

    So he has your support now, awesome! Love the posts of joy as if 1.8 million govt. employees in a state with a labor force of well over 12 million is a major influence on the TX economy.

    Two for one. No doubt you would approve if those 12 million jobs were composed of 8 million government jobs and 4 million private sector jobs!

    As I posted there are 1.8 million Govt. jobs in this state out of a labor force of over 12 million. What is the make up of govt. jobs in your state? Amazing that the numbers you post on Obama just don't seem to resonate with the electorate today as the JAR of Obama is in the low 40%. Guess the electorate just isn't as smart as you are.

    More from the WP story:

    With a young and fast-growing population, a large and expanding military presence and an influx of federal stimulus money, the number of government jobs in Texas has grown at more than double the rate of private-sector employment during Perry’s tenure.


    The disparity has grown sharper since the national recession hit. Between December 2007 and last June, private-sector employment in Texas declined by 0.6 percent while public-sector jobs increased by 6.4 percent, according to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics. Overall, government employees account for about one-sixth of the workforce in Texas.


    The significant role of government in Texas’s relative prosperity stands in stark contrast to the “go-it-alone” image cultivated by Perry, who credits a lack of government interference for fostering a business-friendly environment in Texas.
    It looks to me, there's no miracle in Texas created by Gov. Perry. And, I believe Conservative will vote for Romney over Perry in the Texas primary.

    Give Perry time -- he'll get those government job numbers WAY up.

    I would take either over the current incompetent in the WH.

    At this point, I like Romney a lot, but not sure how I will vote in the primaries. Romney has the business background that we need. He would wipe the floor with Obama in a debate on economic issues exposing Obama for what he is. Perry has never lost an election and is a force. He is a fiscal conservative so it will be a tough decision. Social issues will not drive my vote, fiscal issues will.
