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.
So, I consider the fact that his record shows that he hasn't done a whole lot for TX, but rather got lucky in the way the economy went and where TX sat in that situation.
Then I look at what he is offering to improve the economy,
-changing tax laws to benefit corporations and/or the rich...not good in my eyes
-if we go by what he has done in TX, many jobs created in the US would be lower wage jobs
-plus, the education system of TX is suffering
-on most social issues, I disagree with him profusely, with the possible exceptions of gun control and immigration, and I have seen and heard little from him on either of these on a national level
-seems to dismiss evidence that he finds inconvenient or that contradicts his own beliefs...not a good position for any Presidential hopeful to take

Don't know if Perry will be the candidate but if he is he beats the alternative but not the distorted view being presented by those with an agenda. Get the facts and don't just buy the rhetoric.
As far as why people are migrating to Texas, I have no idea. Why are people flocking to Utah? Why are people flocking to Wyoming, Colorado, and Arizona? Those are the states with the highest immigration and there is no single answer why.
