    Glad I could help clear up your confusion!
    I really appreciate that, especially your support of the taxpayers of TX getting some of their tax dollars back unless of course you think the stimulus money came from that "Obama Stash?" Looks to me like some of the stimulus money was for bridges and infrastructure which is how the stimulus was sold, some of the stimulus money was also used to fund the increased mandate of Medicaid and Unemployment benefits extensions which of course are federal mandates and have to be funded by the federal tax dollars. Keep working hard in destroying Perry as you cannot defend the Obama record. Perry, net job gain and balanced budget, Obama net job losses and 4 trillion added to the debt.

    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.

    LOL, this coming from an Obama supporter who has added 4 trillion to the debt by putting Bush spending on steroids and generating a net job loss? Perry must really be scaring the Obama camp. Looks like a lot of opinion there. Maybe you ought to tell the businesses that are moving to TX that they are screwing up. Nice list, too bad most are out of context and don't tell the rest of the story. How about comparing the Obama rhetoric against that list?

    Stop lying, Con.

    At least a trillion of that was directly due to Bush's FY2009 budget.

    Every time you bring up anything that mentions Bush or Reagan, has anything to do with Bush or Reagan, I am going to do the best I can to ignore it. Stick to the topic or start another thread. baiting and trolling is what you do and unfortunately I bite. Not any more

    Like it or not Fiscal year 2009 was on the Obama record just like the 3 trillion in 2010-2011 is on the Obama record. Notice you always ignore those years which were entirely Obama budgets

    Why should anyone try to screw over TX? No one has said that TX shouldn't have its economy improve. Although, with the massive influx of people, this isn't likely to happen the way you seem to think it is.

    The issue is allowing Perry to take credit for Texas, and any positives that it may see within its business world, when he is not responsible for those positives.

    Perry would be a horrible President. From the way he runs TX, it seems that his buddies and especially campaign donors get a lot of government benefits, including government contracts and jobs. There is no way that he can reduce government if his priority seems to be giving out government handouts, of one sort or another to those who back him.

    The vaccine for HPV prevention for teenage girls is one good example of this. There is no real public protection involved in mandating that vaccine. I don't even really care for most vaccines for viruses that are, for the most part, non-lethal, but it is especially stupid to mandate a vaccine for an STD for teenage girls. It takes all of that personal responsibility you were talking about earlier away from people, not to mention freedom. And this was a Perry policy.
