I also don't like Perry. My bud who worked for him for 5 years says he's crazy. It amazes me sometimes who our country drudges up for candidates when we're working from a pool of maybe 150mm viable adult people.

Correct me if I am wrong but when did GW Bush have 25 million unemployed and under employed? When did Bush have a downgrade of our credit? When did Bush add 4 trillion to the debt? When did Bush have such a rise in misery index? Amazing that liberals have no problem accepting these numbers after spending over a trillion dollars.Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 40% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.
You're right -- Bush didn't add $4 trillion to the debt; he added SIX TRILLION the debt. His recession led to the debt downgrade and massive unemployment.
I think Obama needs to win because his policies are at least improving the situation, whereas the Republicans' policies would make the situation worse.
