    No. I got it in one. I provided "any economic number that is better today than the Bush averages including the recession."

    imho, we should get back to talking about Perry's problems.
    I may be wrong.

    That is the problem with people like you, you really don't understand the economy just like you don't understand the Perry situation. Rhetoric is all you are good at, substance, not so much.

    Perry has no problems, liberals do

    On the contrary. I foresee significant backlash against the democrats for this stunt. Perry may or may not win the nomination but i think it will be because there are better overall candidates. Nit because of partisan loonys in austin

    I'm glad somebody gets this, because most people are castigating one while defending the other. And as long as that happens, the Democrats and Republicans can keep playing ping pong with our balls.

    The veto itself is a check on legislative power, in turn checked by the power to override that power. Separation of powers/checks and balances, I think people get surprised when they learn that the executive branch is actually vested with powers.

    Because the GOP has had such wonderful Presidential candidates in this century.

    And an idiot like Kamikaze Kruz making fun of a real war hero in Sen. Dole .
