    I am pretty sure this is far afield from Perry's problems.
    I may be wrong.

    Quite frankly, in politics, results are supposed to matter.

    Getting elected is NOT a result, but rather a starting point.
    Getting re-elected is supposed to be a result of positive results from the previous term, and is often considered an affirmation of/agreement with a given elected official's policies.

I suggest bea.gov, bls.gov, U.S. Treasury data so that you stop making a fool of yourself.
    He collapsed the housing market. He took a surplus and turned it into a trillion dollar deficit. He took 4.3% unemployment and turned into a 10% unemployment. He bailed out banks. He passed bushcare. No child left behind. He let illegal aliens take over our country. He expanded entitlements. Yeah. he is the worst. No doubt about it. Some conservative you are supporting failed policies like Bush's

    In my mind bush and obama blur together, at least on economic policy.

    Well, if the result is that you are in second place in a two man race, you don't get a starting point. So I would say the most important result is getting the most votes.

    LOL, DJIA? Guess if you pump enough money into the markets keeping interest rates low you are going ot have a stock market bubble. Companies are buying back their stock which is fueling the market

    GDP per capita? Here are the GDP numbers but you seem to want to give Obama credit for the 14.4 trillion GDP he inherited

    GW Bush 488 Billion per year 2001 through 2008
    Barrak Obama 350 billion per year 2009 through 2013

    Want to try again? BEA.gov

    Absolutely incorrect.

    That's only the starting point. The new battle starts when you win the election battle. From that point you have massive pressures and demands on your person, and you will always be wrong in someone's eyes. If you get the majority of people to think you're doing a good job, you're doing well.

    Explain to me how a candidate gets to implement their agenda if they lost the election? Until then, this is a waste of my time.

    Did I ever make such a claim? What I am saying is that winning the election is merely the first battle in a larger war.

    Perry implemented his agenda in TX and TX leads the nation is so many positive categories, job creation, population growth, number of Fortune 500 companies relocating.

    Obama has implemented his agenda and we have stagnant economic growth, high unemployment/under employment/discouraged workers, high debt, but we do have someone who has lowered his golf handicap and taken great vacations.
