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.

    If he actually meant it no I wouldn't agree but I know better, I think Perry was just trying to make a point. Although as usual the media along with others will always try to trip a candidate they don't like on parsing there words, same old sh!t and the strategy from his opponents is really getting worn out.

    You consider this 'treasonous'? That was the actual word he used. Why would Bernanke do this if it were deleterious to the economy???

    Furthermore, all being relative, at 9.1% unemployment, the unemployment rate is 1 percentage point lower than it's high over the last quarter century; whereas Texas is at it's high over the last quarter century.

    Isn't Perry to blame for having the highest unemployment rate in the state since Bill Clements?
    You can't see it? Large influx of people moving Texas looking for work, filing for unemployment or already on it but now reside in Texas, this makes the numbers change. Now a question for you , if Texas is one of the worst states to live in regarding unemployment and other factors, then why the large influx of people moving to Texas, especially from NYC and L.A. You can post numbers, statistics and theories but the fly in the butter milk is that thousand upon thousands are flocking to Texas..WHY?

    Really? Even Karl Rove criticized Perry for the comment.

    Treasonous is too harsh of a word but it would harm the U.S. Economy as I stated. Printing money creates inflation and inflation harms the consumer thus the economy.

    Karl Rove...so? Karl Rove knows exactly what the media and others will do with a statement like that but, does Karl Rove think that Perry was serious,. probably not. As a average person and a average voter this B/S with word games really get tiresome. Although Perry should know better, a rookie mistake on a national level, although IMO Obama should be impeached but. I'll just keep that to myself.

    At 9/10/11% unemployment and a nonexistent economic growth this time next year then Obama is over no matter what the candidate with an "R" after their name runs

    Obama is damaged goods

    You asked why I would vote for someone with a "R" after their name and I gave you the reason. Here it is again

    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.
