The other things you mentioned were all programs in place before Obama took office. He didn't implement any of them. He may have expanded some of them, but he didn't actually implement any.

    And why isn't Perry's program of basically bribing companies with government money a problem to you?

    Also, what exact problems are you talking about? How is health care needs going to be that much different in CA than it is in TX? Don't people in this entire country need food? Aren't the poor people going to still be poor and unable to afford those things I mentioned above whether they live in CA or TX? And then there is education? Actually I can't stand NCLB and if I'm not mistaken, wasn't that a Bush program?

    You can blame this country on Obama all you want, but it doesn't mean that Rick Perry is the solution. Obama is definitely not a good President, but Rick Perry, from my POV, would be much worse. And considering he is all for an anti-SSM amendment, I don't see how anyone can say he is for less government. Another thing that shows he isn't for less government, is the fact that he is offering bribes to businesses to bring them to his state. Is he going to do this on the national level, with federal funds? How is that less government?
    Rogue, first of all thank you for your service. Now for the negative you don't know what you are talking about but do a great job spreading media talking points. I suggest you do some better research. Of course President's use money to create Federal Jobs but certainly not at this level. It isn't the Federal Government's job to bail out unions and state teachers' jobs. Where did you ever get that idea.

    What govt. money did Perry use to bring businesses to TX? Do you understand that when you say govt. money you are saying taxpayer money? Is it the taxpayers of TX responsibility to fund jobs in California? You do realize that Federal Tax dollars come from all taxpayers from all over the nation?

    Healthcare needs are personal and everyone's living habits are different thus there is no one size fits all program. There is nothing in Obamacare that lowers healthcare costs and the Federal Mandate will be proven unconstitutional. The poor get healthcare from Medicaid and other state programs so why Obamacare? That is part of the nanny state that liberals seem to want. Show a utopian country with Obamacare type healthcare?

    Obama was hired based upon his rhetoric and not his resume. He is incompetent and has zero leadership skills. There is no comparision between Obama and Perry. I have seen nothing from your POV that is accurate in describing Perry but I do see DNC talking points and down right lies. I am still waiting for proof of those bribes to get business to come to TX. He doesn't have to bribe anyone, TX has no state income taxes. Let Obama have his way and raise taxes on those evil rich people and businesses, you are going to see a lot of businesses move to states with lower taxes. What affect will that have on your state? Think about it?

    Regardless the figures are meaningless to most, so long as Texas is number one in most area's of the economy.

    PolitiFact Texas | Rick Perry says a "rather extraordinary amount of non-classroom employees" were added by Texas school districts over the last decade

    Hinting that Texas school districts should adjust budgets without laying off loads of teachers, Gov. RIck Perry told Capitol reporters March 9 that non-classroom school employees are burgeoning.
    Next, we looked at the overall change in all non-classroom employees, who increased 33 percent to 328,194 from 1998-99 to 2009-10. One way of summing this up is to say the districts’ overall hiring rate of non-classroom workers ran 18 percent ahead of the hiring rate for teachers.

    Do you pay property taxes in Oregon? Where do those taxes go? If you need more money for your schools where do you go to get it? The state or the local community? I don't think you have a clue.

    Still waiting for you to explain to sheik how TX 8.4% unemployment helps the Obama national numbers which were 9.1%? Do liberals ever challenge another liberal?

    I like how you started this by comparing the difference from when Obama started to now, but the moment it's brought to your attention that Texas unemployment is up 2 points to the nation's 1.3 points, you drop the "from when Obama started" part and just look at the current unemployment rate.

    You also never answered the question, what Perry policies do you attribute people and companies migrating to Texas? Maybe you just can't cite any?

    I like how you ignored your own post and how you ignore that the TX rate is under the national rate and how TX is creating Jobs having a net job gain since 2009 and Obama has a net job loss nationally. If it weren't for TX the net job loss would be worse. Obama and liberals should be thankful for TX

    LOL, good move, but regardless most liberals will still ignore it. I bookmarked it so now have that for future reference when people like Sheik, Winston, Pb start talking about TX again.

    You don't think Texas hitting its highest unemployment rate in 25 years under Perry is going to hurt him? ANd trending upwards, no less.
