How about the East coast? Keep demonizing Perry while ignoring the mess Obama has created. I suggest you pay close attention to the Fortune 500 companies in TX because although Oil is important there are many others not related to the oil business that contributes significantly to the labor force growth and economic growth of the state. I am still waiting for any Obama supporter to really explain why they voted for Obama in 2008 and how they can justify the results TODAY

God bless them, free will and personal responsibility, not forced govt. involvement in personal responsibility issues.

    Still waiting for an answer to the questions I posed to you over the weekend. Would you prefer living in a state where people have the freedom to choose what is best for them or one where you are forced to participate in what the govt. wants for you?
    I suppose in your world because the Republicans passed the Medicare Part D, it wasn't "nanny state."

    Translation: you have no f'n clue what bills Perry signed that helped the Texas economy. You don't even know if he did. He's your governor and you don't even know what he's done to help Texas.

    What a ringing endorsement to not vote for Perry -- his own constituents can't say what he's done!

    No, you cannot assure me of that. You can't even cite one single piece of legislation he signed which helped boost the economy of Texas.

    Can you scream, "I have no f'n clue what bills Perry signed that helped boost our economy," any louder?

    Unless you can show what Perry did to help the economy there, you have nothing to praise. I saw another poster say what Perry did was to do nothing. You seem to be in agreement with that other poster.

    Voting for Bush 4 times only serves to reveal you are in no position to judge what qualifies as a "wise choice" when it comes to casting a vote.

    Still waiting for proof to the contrary. <tap, tap, tap>

    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 the nanny state to you means putting the consumer in charge of their healthcare and prescription drug program? Now that is a new one.

    Nothing you said changes the fact that Perry was the beneficiary of skyrocketting oil prices, which account for most of Texas' gains. I guess you could give Republicans credit for that, since their failure to address energy speculation and their Iraq war contributed to the massive run up in oil prices. Kudos.

    Uh, no it doesn't, any idea how many employees the oil industry employ in the state of TX? What exactly is in that Kool-aid you continue to drink? High dollar volume low employment numbers vs. the rest of the labor force

What do you think is going to happen to high tax states around the country if liberals get their way and raise corporate taxes and personal income taxes on the rich? Think the state tax revenue is going to be the same? Do you ever think beyond the moment?
    You make the same mistakes as you don't seem to know why or how. Much what has happened there as noted can't be copied elsewhere, it involves many low wage jobs for immigrants, and took federal dollars and corporate welfare. This is not something to be too excited about or praise overly.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
