    Sure, it can be explained by a lot of other reasons besides Rick Perry. In fact, due to those reasons, it would not have mattered who was in office at the time, TX would have probably seen most of that same job growth.

    And MA is not worse than Texas:

    Well Above Average 1 Massachusetts 4.82

    (snip)

    Below Average 31 Texas 2.45

    State Education Rankings: The Best And Worst For Math And Science


    In this ranking, MA is number one and texas 32nd.

    In healthcare:

    Massachusetts 0.906 02

    (snip)

    Texas -0.364 40

    Measure

    MA is second in overall ranking and texas 40th.

    Good comparison.
    Your right but, this is not the argument I am making, just because MA. is doing better than TX doesn't mean in any way shape or form that MA. is a success. The educational system is failing our students, the state healthcare is still bankrupt and our taxes here is MA. or still high and we can very little in return. My point is that the government is the problem especially the federal government, the difference between TX and MA is that the state of Texas isn't in our wallet, in our house, in our business and in our personal lives to the same extent as MA.

    Let's see, TX has a net job gain since Obama took office and Obama has a net job loss. TX has a balanced budget and Obama has added 4 trillion to the debt. TX has more people employed today than when Obama took office and Obama has less. Sounds to me like the TX record beats the Obama record. Just imagine where Obama would be without the TX record.

    You can't call Texas great based only on the number of jobs in the state.... China is taking a lot of American jobs, does that make China great?

    You made the claim about education not healthcare, As I have pointed out, there are many different options for healthcare in TX but unlike you Texans believe healthcare is a personal resonsibility not a Federal Responsibility, just like education is a state responsibliity not a Federal Responsibility. Seems that the Nov elections tell you all that you need to know about the feeling in TX as Texans gave the Governor a filibuster proof Legislature. What do the people of TX know that you don't, my guess is quite a bit especially since you don't live in TX.

    Get real. Obama needs an economic miracle to keep the job, and it doesn't look like that will be forthcoming and to just hint on Perry's political savvy

    Perry is already making it Perry vs Obama, instead of Perry vs all the other Rep contenders.

    Its hook, line, and sinker and you are biting, Boo

    for once, be honest with yourself and this board...results/record mean nothing to you, all you are concerned about is does the person have an (R) next to their name, if they do, they get your vote, regardless of the results/record they have.

    Doing better matters. I see no evidence MA is failing in any way, especially with such high rankings. We do face national problems, but seeing how each state is doing does give us some indication on who is doing a better job of tackling it. To judge Perry, we have to look at his entire record, not be too selective and ignore his failings, the states failings.

    And Perry is government. He used Federal funds, and spent tax payor money, corporate welfare, to inflate his numbers. This is big government by definition.
