Then there is the Gallup Poll showing Perry and Obama tied. I fully expect Obama to be in the 30's in the polls vs. Republican candidates soon. There is no reason to vote for Obama with the results he has generated, results that liberals always ignore. Your state is a disaster financially and from I heard is looking for a bailout from the Federal Taxpayer. Not going to happen with the GOP in charge of the House so the people of California are going to have to pay up for liberalism and the entitlement mentality you have
    You're memory and defintions are somewhat selective. The fact remains, the mandate was a republican idea.

    Health insurance mandate began as a Republican idea
    In 90s, GOP saw an alternative to Clinton plan

    I know Fox news is a liberal rag and such, but facts are facts.

    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.

Let Obama raise taxes on business and see what happens. Businesses are going to pay those higher taxes but look to lower state tax locations to move their business to offset that tax rate. Right to work states are going to boom. Bring it on, Barack
    Wow, you are so incredibly disingenuous (the nice word for it). The fact that people are moving to TX also accounts for the net increase in jobs. It does not excuse the rising unemployment rate, as Perry obviously isn't creating jobs fast enough to keep his head above water. Texas' unemployment problem is only going to get worse as Perry has been force to cut government spending which produced 2/3 of the new jobs.

    Then how do you explain the numbers today and please don't give me that bs "because of the Republican House" which took office January 2011. Fiscal year of the govt. runs from October to September, first qtr GDP was October 1, 2010 to December 31, 2010. The stimulus passed was for shovel ready jobs and failed. Now you want to trust him to spend more money? That shows just how liberals continue to buy the Obama lies because of an ideology.

    Logic and common sense always escape liberals. Apparently you don't seem to grasp the concept of growing population nationally and Obama economic policies that drive people to TX. The fact remains and you will continue to ignore it, Perry net job gain, Obama net job loss. TX is helping Obama's numbers. You should be saying thank you

    Republicans have a lot of ideas and is made up today of a big tent, something the liberals could learn from. Republicans never proposed universal healthcare and a federal mandate but that doesn't stop people like you from grasping for straws. We shall see probably my next Spring how the Supreme Court rules. In the meantime, try to stick to the thread topic.

    Rick Perry, net job gain, increasing labor force, more jobs today than when Obama took office, and a two year balanced budget; Barack Obama net job loss, declining labor force, less people working, and 4 trillion ADDED to the debt.

    The fact is that Perry's Texas has rising unemployment, while unemployment is falling in most of the country. No way to spin out of that choke hold.

    btw, Conservative, if you have such a hard on for Perry, why are you supporting Flip Flopney?

    Here's another gem from your spineless candidate.

    "‘Mushy’ Mitt Romney Takes New Climate Stance: ‘I Don’t Know’ | “Do I think the world’s getting hotter? Yeah, I don’t know that but I think that it is,” Romney said at a New Hampshire town hall event last night, after being criticized by Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) for being “mushy” on climate change. “I don’t know if it’s mostly caused by humans.” Copying a Rick Perry line, Romney concluded: “What I’m not willing to do is spend trillions of dollars on something I don’t know the answer to.” He also said, “I do not believe in putting a carbon cap” on polluters. Two months ago, Romney said, “I believe that humans contribute” to global warming, “so it’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.” A Romney aide told Reuters that “the candidate has not altered his position on climate change.”
