    It goes way beyond their candidates, unfortunately. They are the party of NO. They have NO ideas, but they sure don't anyone else to succeed, either.

    Yep, the liberal in me is coming out, the only reason you voted for Obama was your anti Bush vote

    Rhetoric aside, way too early to be puffing your chest out....If the election were held today Obama would be lucky to avoid an embarrassing landslide.

    I agree with that but you'll never get a rightwinger to agree with *that*. However, their own arguments reveal that their clear understanding of how weak their candidates are. They don't even try to defend them. They just put up a token effort, but once the lies are stripped away and real evidence is required, they resort to attacking Obama - a sure sign that they know their candidates are a fail. Basically, their two leading candidates are Perry (who is just bush* with good hair) and Romney (who is just Obama with good hair)

    This one ranks Texas 32nd:

    33 here:

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Only 33% of voters in the state think he should make a bid for the White House compared to 59% opposed to him running. More surprising than that? Perry actually trails Barack Obama 47-45 in a hypothetical match up in the state.
    Perry’s trailing Obama certainly has nothing to do with the President being popular. Only 42% of voters in the state like the job he’s doing to 55% who rate him poorly. Texas is a Republican state to begin with him and Obama has a lot more Democrats (14%) who disapprove of him than GOP voters who approve (6%) and beyond that he’s on negative ground with independents at 46/47.
    Perry, however, is almost as unpopular. Only 43% of voters approve of him with 52% giving him bad marks. Most striking in Perry’s numbers is a horrible 33/62 standing with independents. He also has 21% of Republicans disapproving of him while only 12% of Democrats cross over to give him good marks. Perry may prove to be a strong Presidential candidate but his numbers in Texas are nothing to write home about.

    <snip>

    Can a guy who’s been governor for 10 and a half years really be regarded so poorly by his constituents? Well, the Texas Tribune polled the locals on the GOP presidential field late last month, before Perrymania had taken off. First place was “don’t know” with 14 percent; Palin was next at 12 percent. Rick Perry? Tenth place at just four percent, two points behind … Donald Trump. Hmmmm. (However, 48 percent said they’d vote for the GOP nominee, whoever that may be, versus just 30 percent who said they’d vote for Obama.)

    Notice anything similar between border states in the rankings you posted. TX ranks higher than both California and Arizona. Shows the value of your rankings which isn't relevant at all. I guess people in Iowa don't have a true understanding of what we face in a border state just like you don't seem to have any idea on other issues.

    Hate to break it to you but that was before Perry even announced and was a June 29 poll, irrelevant. Guess you missed the tie today in the Gallup poll. Not surprising. For someone from TX you sure have a distorted view of TX

    It does appear to me that you have a typical biased leftwing point of view against anyone that challenges Obama. Why you support this empty suit is beyond me and any one else that is capable of thinking. I suggest you read about Romney who took the state of MA from a deficit to a surplus, turned a financial mess at the Salt Lake Olympics and turned into a profit, not many Olympics have ever been profitable. His business background is exceptional and trumps the empty suit you supported. I suggest you do some research and tell me why anyone would support Obama over Romney
