    Where do you suppose that a President Perry is going to get the funding to hand out all this corporate welfare? What programs will he cut? Social security? Medicare?
    How many Senior votes do you think Perry is going to get? You can pretty much write Florida off the electoral map....and a GOP candidate has a hard time coming up with a winning strategy that doesn't include Florida.

    True enough, but I don't hear Cons calling for the ouster of CEOs for not providing jobs.

    Just another BS talking point. The Government provides a large amount of jobs....in fact the government has always been the nation's largest employer.

Don't be afraid of your computer and ask others to do it for you. Computers really aren't all that scary although your generation I know is easily intimidated.

    When you do a little research you will see that Texas has the highest percentage of minimum wage jobs in the country. You will also see that a large part of the "job growth" under Perry has a lot to do with undocumented workers, which he claims to be against (can you say the hypocrisy is glaring?). You will also see that Texas has one of the highest amounts of corporate welfare given out in the country, which has been financed in large part by huge cuts in public education.

    Do you really think he is going to go very far with that record?
    You DO realize you are talking to a Texas conservative, right? What does all that have to do with anything? Facts, schmacks.

    Perry most likely will be joining The Donald by the next news cycle. Don't waste too much time over this. The rest of the nation "gets it." Texas is big, but not THAT big. Besides, it will be a while before America forgets Bush also came from Texas. Rest easy.

    If nothing else does, this will sink Perry in the general election should he get there:

    I hope and pray that the GOP doesn't get it. Perry would make a perfect nominee for the Republican party. I've been working with my local chapter here in Los Angeles to help Sarah Palin secure the GOP nomination....depending on what she decides on Sept 3, I may have to jump over and help campaign for Perry. I'm hoping for someone to beat Romney in the primary.

    Hey, I thought you said you post the "latest" polls? How come you skipped over these two new polls in favor of the one you liked better? (as though no one knows why)

    Rasmussen Reports 8/17 - 8/22 1000 LV 43 40 Obama +3

    PPP (D) 8/18 - 8/21 700 RV 49 43 Obama +6

    Last night, you got caught cherry-picking GDP data ... now you're caught cherry-picking polling data.

    Oh, my.

    No, it is about opening a non union plant in South Carolina and hiring new workers from South Carolina

    Irregardless of the financial situation he inherited, every step he's taken has made it ****ing worse. Entitlements that continued to grow, higher tax rates that resulted in lower revenues and deficit spending on top of deficit spending. The government produces absolutely nothing. Every dollar the government spends that "stimulates" the economy was first taken from the economy. Its like relieving your thirst by pissing down your throat, disney. Obama's stimulus measures produced a few jobs in a few areas, but as soon as the money ran out, the jobs went away. But we were left with the debt.

    What about the continued screwing of the rich by taxing them more and more. Where is the money that creates businesses, hires people, produces goods, etc
