If participation remains this low, employers need to create fewer jobs to reduce the unemployment rate, currently at 9 percent.

    let's see, Perry net job increase, Obama net job lossses! Hmmm, Perry, balanced budget, Obama 4 trillion added to the debt and credit downgrade.

    They aren't being taken from Washington State and that is the point. New jobs for South Carolina that Obama doesn't want because they aren't union jobs. That means less contributions to the Obama campaign

    No, but they did pass "An act for the relief of sick and disabled seamen" in 1798.

    Act for the Relief of Sick & DisabledSeamen, July 1798.

    Well then, there you go, very comparable to SS, Medicare, and Medicaid, if only all were sick and diabled seamen

    What? No apology for calling my post "bull****" even though I backed it up, proving it's not bull****?

    14 Reasons Why Rick Perry Would Be A Really, Really Bad President

    #1 Rick Perry is a "big government" politician. When Rick Perry became the governor of Texas in 2000, the total spending by the Texas state government was approximately $49 billion. Ten years later it was approximately $90 billion.

    #2 The debt of the state of Texas is out of control. According to usdebtclock.org, the debt to GDP ratio in Texas is 22.9% and the debt per citizen is $10,645. In California (a total financial basket case), the debt to GDP ratio is just 18.7% and the debt per citizen is only $9932.

    #3 The total debt of the Texas government has more than doubled since Rick Perry became governor. So what would the U.S. national debt look like after four (or eight) years of Rick Perry?

    #4 Rick Perry has spearheaded the effort to lease roads in Texas to foreign companies, to turn roads that are already free to drive on into toll roads, and to develop the Trans-Texas Corridor which would be part of the planned NAFTA superhighway system.

    #5 Rick Perry claims that he has a "track record" of not raising taxes. That is a false claim. Rick Perry has repeatedly raised taxes and fees while he has been governor. Today, Texans are faced with significantly higher taxes and fees than they were before Rick Perry was elected.

    #6 Even with the oil boom in Texas, 23 states have a lower unemployment rate than Texas does.

    #7 Back in 1988, Rick Perry supported Al Gore for president. In fact, Rick Perry actually served as Al Gore's campaign chairman in the state of Texas that year.

    #8 Between December 2007 and April 2011, weekly wages in the U.S. increased by about 5 percent. In the state of Texas they increased by just 0.6% over that same time period.

    #9 Texas now has one of the worst education systems in the nation.

    #10 Rick Perry attended the Bilderberg Group meetings in 2007. Associating himself with that organization should be a red flag for all American voters.

    #11 Texas has the highest percentage of workers making minimum wage out of all 50 states.

    #12 Rick Perry often gives speeches about illegal immigration, but when you look at the facts, he has been incredibly soft on the issue. If Rick Perry does not plan to secure the border, then he should not be president because illegal immigration is absolutely devastating many areas of the southwest United States.

    #13 In 2007, 221,000 residents of Texas were making minimum wage or less. By 2010, that number had risen to 550,000.

    #14 Rick Perry actually issued an executive order in 2007 that would have forced almost every single girl in the state of Texas to receive the Gardasil vaccine before entering the sixth grade.

    For more detail, see the link above.

    Sadly for them, that is the best they can do. Never mind that the term "bushism" was coined because Bush gaffed 40 times for every one of Obama's. Never mind that you can buy a calendar with a different Bush flub for every day of the year in it. But hey, Obama said "57 states!!"



    If nothing else, it's a reflection of just how desperate they are after having to defend Bush's massive gaffes for 8 years.

    Abandoning your claim that it's the presidents fault is a sure sign that even you know how ridiculous the claim is
