    Don't be in denial.... the economy and unemployment will take center stage during this cycle, Boo

    Oh, and another thing...Obama is taking Perry more seriously than you are. Wonder why?
    You can fool some of the all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but the fact remains, Texas is not heaven on earth. A closer look shows more than superfical numbers can. If we want to be honest, we look closer.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I can post you rankings to the contrary, what bothers me is that you cannot explain why the labor force growth in TX along with the population growth in TX leads the nation. Apparently those businesses here don't pay any attention to those so called rankings that you tout. I will take the actual results vs. what you post.

    When did I say that TX was heaven on earth? It just beats the Obama alternative. Would you rather live in a state like TX with the freedoms we have or the nanny state that Obama is promoting that is based upon Federal mandates?

    BY all means post them. I've run across a few different ones, some ranking texas as low as 49th. Let's see what credible source you pull from.

    I don't think a .6% advantage in unemployment rate is insignificant. Fir example, it would be a huge deal if the U.S. UP rate dropped from 9.1 to 8.5%.

    Further, MA's rate is falling while Texas' is rising: Unemployment in the U.S. - Google Public Data Explorer

    What Perry policies can you cite that contributed to that?

    Interesting that you ignored the Obama resume but now find resumes and past experience something to thoroughly review. Yes, let's demonize the competition while diverting from the Obama record. That is right out of the liberal playbook

    Depends on what you define beating as. Spending your tax dollars on corporate welfare, while losing on education and health care may well seem better to you. Maybe not to others.
