    In voting in 2008, I checked out the resume of both McCain and Obama, the choice was easy. McCain wasn't my choice but he beat the alternative. My bet is that I have voted for more Democrats than you have Republicans although neither of us can prove it on line.
    So your main criterion is flip flopping on the issues? I see why you support Romney.

    I posted the unemployment rates for all the Mexican border states which of course you ignored. Now Sheik would ask Pb why he continues to lie but I won't do that. This is 2011 by the way and I want to personally thank California for sending TX so many of their businesses.

    Wow. This response had nothing to do with what you quoted.

    To address it though, first I never made the claim that the increase was due even mostly to the military. I said that the increase in military in that area was one factor. In fact, I myself helped the TX economy twice due to military members being in the area, once while my brother was stationed at Ft. Hood and again when my husband was in A-school at Lachland AFB. Without my family being there for the military, I would have never traveled to TX.

    Second, I have maintained that much of the job creation in TX is due to the circumstances of TX, not any policies of the governor. There could have been things that the governor/government could have done to slow growth in TX, but there was probably also stuff that the TX government/governor could have done to help TX grow more prosperous without negatively affecting education and healthcare levels.

    Again, what policies did Perry enact that improved the TX economy?

    Hey, that is your opinion, guess the lies of Obama aren't flip flops in your world nor are the results vs the rhetoric.

    I'd rather live in a state with falling unemployment, better paying jobs, better schools, and a lower uninsured rate. Guess that's why it's a horse race.

    Tort reform for one and that led to the addition of 26,000 new doctors. A policy of balancing the budget without raising taxes. The policy of going out and meeting with Businesses all over the state that drew those businesses to the state.

    What is great about this country is you have the right to do that. TX will certainly miss you.

    You implied that Texas' population was growing faster than Arizona's, which it isn't.

    Actually I'm very concerned about the population growth here. We simply do not have the water resources to sustain population growth at the current rate. Lakes are running dry.

    It doesn't matter. Migration from one state to another in search of low paying jobs is not a way to increase the # of jobs. It only moves the jobs from one place to the other. It is a policy that can increase employment in one state, but it's not a policy that works on the national level.
