    If nothing else, it's a reflection of just how desperate they are after having to defend Bush's massive gaffes for 8 years.
    Obama made that Gaffe about 57 states in Beaverton, Or just a few miles from here. It was the last stop on a 3-state in one day campaigning, I'm sure he was very tired. It's amazing to me that conservatives continue to believe he doesn't know how many states there are. Dumb asses.

    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.
    Look, whoever is in charge takes the credit and the blame, that is the way it works, unless of course you are in the Obama Administration and everything is someone elses' fault. If it comes down to what you believe Perry will be compared to what Obama is, then the choice seems to be give Perry a chance, net job gain and balanced budget vs. a net job loss and 4 trillion added to the debt. So Obama hasn't treated his buddies and campaign donors better. Why is Jeff Immelt Head of his Jobs Committee? He has surrounded himself with friends and intellectual idiots that have never even balanced a budget, made a payroll, or had executive experience. Obama says one thing and does the other. He loves the perks of being President but doesn't have a clue as to the leadership requirements of being President.

    Perry said he made a mistake in pushing that vaccination and in fact there was an opt out of that mandate which most people still don't know. It was a mistake and he admits it. When has Obama admitted a mistake.

    Perry...massive cuts to education to finance the biggest handouts of corporate welfare in the country.
    Perry....Texas leads the nation with the highest percentage of minimum wage and below minimum wage jobs in the country
    Perry....Poverty rate 4x that of California.

    Wow....seriously? Which campaign slogan do you like best Con?

    Perhaps "Perry - the new and improved GWB"?

    Whoever is in charge shouldn't be taking all the blame for anything if they don't have the final decision in a situation. We are not a tyranny. Congress has just as much power as the President, some in certain situations. I would say the branch with the least amount of power is actually the Judicial Branch, since they have to wait til a case reaches them to actually be able to exert their power, which generally takes years.

    And of course he apologizes now for that stupid executive order. I don't believe he is stupid, he just isn't a good leader. He is more than willing to put his own political ambitions and greed above the welfare of majority of this country.

    So more spending means a better education? 550,000 minimum wage jobs with an employment base of almost 11 million which is 5%. Want to bet California's number on California minimum wage isn't a lower percentage?

    Poverty rate 4 times California? By what measurement and prove it? How much do illegals make in California?

    Congress was under total Democrat control from 2007-2011. Obama had his economic policy implemented almost day one with his stimulus package that failed. Obama got everything he asked for and the results are lower employment now than when he took office, higher unemployment, more discouraged workers, declining work force, 4 trillion added to the debt, and a downgrade of our credit rating. No one can positively spin those results.
