Obama economic policies have led to people dropping out of the labor force in record numbers which is why U-6 is so high and the labor force dropping, or so it seems.

    If you know how the unemployment rate is calculated then you would know what affect discouraged workes has on that rate.
    Here is what you stated:

    He could do what Obama has done, reduce the labor force and reduce that number from the unemployed to make the rate better.
    Which is false. Unless of course you can provide a source that shows Obama did as you claimed.

    TX transportation and infrastructure, low cost of living, tech and innovation, and access to capital appear to be the biggest things that bring jobs to TX. Although, the increase in troops also has an affect as well.

    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.”

    I'm afraid the tech sector is losing interest in the state because of budget cuts to education.

    No question about it and low cost of living is directly related to taxes. Compare taxes in TX to yours in California.

    Don't forget proximity to the Mexican border and payouts to corporations to move their companies to Texas.

    California is on the Mexican border as is Arizone yet people and business keep moving to TX. San Diego could handle more businesses moving their. Why aren't they?

    An aging baby boom will have a short term impact on the number of discouraged workers. As they begin to retire in droves, a great deal of job creation will be required to make up the loss of labor.
