    No, we were not going into a recession. You never stop lying. It's amazing.

    GDP when Reagan took over:

    1980q4: 7.6
    1981q1: 8.6

    That's your idea of going into a recession, is it?

    Unemployment rate dropping is your idea of going into a recession, is it?

    10-1980: 7.5%
    11-1980: 7.5%
    12-1980: 7.2%
    01-1981: 7.5%
    02-1981: 7.4%
    03-1981: 7.4%
    04-1981: 7.2%

    Looks like you don't even know that Paul Volker created the recession to bring down inflation. What a shame because several people here have tried to educate you.

    How's your state doing? TX unemployment is below the national average thus making Obama's numbers look better. TX has a growing labor force making Obama's numbers look better, TX has more employed again making Obama's numbers look better. At least TX ought to get a thank you

    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! 38% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    When you have no record to run on you let surrogates participate in the politics of personal destruction. 38% JAR doesn't look like it is working.

    Paul Krugman did not write this piece; he simply brought up the point about the population growth rate of Texas. However, it is interesting that Texas has more minimum wages workers than any other state in the Union. A low skill/low wage labor force is of no interest to me nor anyone who wishes this country to be competitive in the future.

    If you wish to refute the piece, it would be helpful to address the actual author and some (if any) points that were made.

    And any smart voter will realize that Perry had little to nothing to do with those numbers in TX. What has happened in TX would have likely happened no matter who was in the Governor's seat in TX as long as they did very little to prevent it. So far, the only thing that I can find that Perry did was give government jobs and contracts to his campaign donors, pass a law that capped malpractice suits, and took credit for circumstances in TX that he cannot reasonably reproduce for the entire country.

    I sure hope perry gets the chance to run against OUR PRESIDENT.With any luck at all he will have bachman as his running mate.Here,s a good video take a peek, preferably after your evening nap.

    This is to be expected when you inherit the worst economic/financial crisis since the 1930's.

    Wonder how much in unemployment insurance those minimum wage earners collect from the taxpayers? I suggest you do some research and you will find that the number is 550,000 out of a labor force of over 12 million so I am sure you can figure out the percentage which is less than 5%. Over half are between the age of 16-24 and many are second wage earners. Guess you must have missed that part of the analysis.

    I have no interest in refuting the articles you posted but am concerned about the Obama record. The important issue in this country is jobs, jobs, and jobs. TX creates them and other states don't. TX has a balanced budget without raising taxes and others don't. Let me know when Obama has a net job gain and balances the budget.
