    You don't compare the record of a person to that of a state. You can compare the records of a state to the federal government, ensuring that you take into account every thing that each is responsible for and what they do and who gets say in doing those things. Or you can compare the record of the President of the country to that of a governor of a state, ensuring that you take into account everything that was their policy and everything that was a policy already in place and anything that they were forced to do or not do, plus how well they are doing overall.

    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


    He may well, depending on who is running against him, but that changes nothing of what I said:

    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.

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.
    Aheeemmm you do not speak for this native born Texan.

    And I suggest you stop attempting to speak for other native born Texans as well.

    Most I know do not appreciate that what ever their political lean is.

    BTW you misspelled responsibility twice.

    This is what will be on the ballot in Nov. 2012 so the "R" won't make a difference

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 40% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    Thanks for the spell check and for being the spelling police.

    I speak as an outsider who moved to TX 19 years ago after living in the state of Washington, Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana. You take for granted what is here and I don't. I value what is here and still claim this is the best move I have ever made. you don't know what you have here when you have experienced nothing else by living there.

    Except we still have a major problem with education, and that said the American people best get off their asses and quit bitching about left and right etc., this isn't going to solve our problem. Here is one of many articles links etc., a very sad story about us as educated citizens? ....our schools are failing period.

    and what i said stands, and i stand behind it, if obama had an (R) next to his name, you would have no problem with him at all, and we would hear not a peep from you about records/results.....
