    Obama: can't stand Obamacare, but it is likely to go away via courts, otherwise, hopefully it can get gone another way within the next 5-10 years
    hate stance on immigration, one thing that scares me about keeping him in office
    economy issues, he isn't doing well, but neither is Congress or most of the states, I understand that most of the plans require so much compromise that they become useless or hurt more people than they help

    Perry: doesn't care about the poor or even, it seems, much about education
    seems to be all about giving his campaign donors jobs and contracts rather than actually caring about the people
    has no solid plan about the economy, just brings up his state's rankings and job creation as if he is completely responsible, which is not what the evidence suggests
    plans on trying to get multiple amendments passed to restrict freedoms, including an anti-SSM amendment (not likely to happen, but still possible if multiple amendments pushed at once)
    doesn't seem to hold science in any high regard, despite evidence to the contrary of his own beliefs (big issue with this)
    doesn't care about the environment (another hot topic of mine)

    Lesser of two evils definitely Obama.
    Yep, results don't matter nor do the increase in poverty under Obama, the 25 million unemployed or under employed Americans and the 16% African Unemployment rate. Sounds like the Obama brainwashing is working

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ 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.

    I thought the poverty metric didn't matter to you?

    Again, you're wrong. I'm looking at the results of both people, not just basing it off of one of them. I also factor in the possible future results, with as many factors as I can find with what either of them is likely to be able to get enacted during their term and how it will likely affect me and other Americans during that time and after.

    If the GOP could nominate a candidate that I consider will have a more positive or less negative (however you wish to look at it) impact on America, I would vote for that person rather than Obama. I am not a Party person. I vote based on the records of both candidates (when each is compared) and what I see as each of them likely to try to get done and how much positive or negative I see coming out of that. Someone like Huntsman, I would probably vote for over Obama, and I certainly would not vote for Obama to try to ensure he didn't get into office, like I would for Perry or Bachman or a couple of other current GOP contenders.

    What makes you an expert on Perry and TX when I live here and have for 19 years. The Perry record trumps the Obama record as does his resume. Obama has done enough damage in less than 3 years yet that doesn't seem to matter. I am still waiting for you to explain why businesses are moving their employees to this "hell hole" and why the numbers for Obama are being ignored. You really don't seem to understand TX at all but have no problem ignoring the Obama promises and then his record.

    Why would anyone vote for someone with this record?

    Then why doesn't the high poverty rate, crappy education, high uninsured rate in Texas matter to you?

    You have to consider where he started.

    And what Obama inherited: economy shedding 700,000+ jobs per month, GDP shrinking at 6+% per year, financial institutions teetering on the edge of collapse, trillion+ deficit.... Nice improvement.

    They do matter to me but those are local issues, I don't have a problem with my school district at all, nor do I have a problem with the economic policy of TX. I have a serious problem with the nanny state being promoted by Obama as would you if you are a true Texan. Healthcare is a personal responsibilty as well.

    My son graduated from this school district and is a successful architect. My grandkids are getting a great education in this District that has the elementary Principal of the Year.
