    Which means that TX will lose even more of its business appeal. I don't see TX as staying at the number 2 spot on that "Top States for Business" list very long.

    Definition of discouraged workers? What do the baby boomers have to do with discouraged workers. Retiring workers create openings for others.

    Wishful thinking? Pure speculation, sure hasn't happened in the last couple years

    Is this the hope and change you voted for

    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.

    My bet is you didn't see the Obama results either but anyone that would have paid attention to his resume expected these kind of results. This is what happens when you elect someone without experience and someone incompetent to the Presidency. Absolutely no leadership skills and executive experience at all.

    Why don't you respond to the FACT that all the surrounding states have lower unemployment rates? Where is the miracle in Texas?

    Those at the extreme ends of the age spectrum have a higher propensity to become discouraged (workers who are too young/old to want to hire). Stock market losses have eaten up a great deal of people's planned retirement income thereby forcing near-retirees to stay in the labor force. Many of them who cannot find employment end up discouraged.

    Just an example of that liberal education brilliance. This coupled with either Romney's or Perry's executive experience doesn't bode well for Obama's re-election and rightly so
