When does this economy become Obama's in your world. Please explain to me why their are fewer people employed today than when Obama took office, more people unemployed today than when Obama took office. Why the GDP growth in 2011 is lower than it was in 2010 and why the cost of 4 trillion added to the debt created those numbers? Businesses aren't hiring and that is because Busineses cannot print money, there has to be demand for products and Obama scares the hell out of businesses and the consumer. The results are there for all to see, when you will look at the results and stop buying the rhetoric?
As for the Constitutional issues, I see a need for having a somewhat stronger federal government than we had or needed 200 years ago. It cannot be denied that states had too much power when it came to many things and we are not the same country now as we were then. Some change is good.
I didn't know about him til people on here mentioned him running, then, as usual, I looked him up, including his policies and decided how close we are to each other's political philosophies. He is very far from me.
Now, Huntsman would likely get my vote or at least not lose my vote to Obama. I can't give my vote to any candidate though who is willing to dismiss facts (such as in the Willingham case) without even considering that there might not have even been a crime to actually execute someone for. And it certainly appears as though he doesn't care that an innocent man was likely executed.

The bottom line - Any (thats right..any) Rep candidate will have an easy time showing why Obama's tax, spending, and regulatory policies are responsible for the sluggishness we find ourselves in right now. Perry just needs to make the most forceful argument in this regard and everything will fall in its place
Obama has truly ****ed things up royally and it won't be hard for any "R" candidate to point out how. And another thing... *blame Bush* bull**** won't work this time around
Among hourly-paid workers in Texas, 550,000 had earnings at or below the prevailing Federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour in 2010, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. (See chart 1.) Nearly 5.8 million workers were paid at hourly rates, representing 55.7 percent of all Texas wage and salary workers.1. Regional Commissioner Stanley W. Suchman noted that the number of Texans paid at or below the Federal minimum wage increased as the number of workers earning the exact Federal minimum wage rose, while the number of Texans paid below the minimum wage declined. Combined, these workers accounted for 9.5 percent of all hourly-paid workers in Texas.2. (See chart 2 and table 1.)
