    One thing's for sure, Gov. Perry's record on immigration won't win him alot of support from his base. Regardless of how TX employment and job creation numbers are spun, it's not going to look good for Perry on the immigration front going into the GOP primaries OR if he happens to win the GOP nomination and has to debate the President on this issue. Perry's stance on providing education to "anchor babies" as they're called closely mirrors the DREAM Act. As such, Perry will face just as much opposition on the immigration front from his base as Romney now faces on healthcare reform.

    Hiring illegals, creating low-paying jobs mostly in local, state and federal government and calling SocSec a ponzi scheme aren't winning Perry many favors.

    Only if they actually look at the record and examine it.

    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.

    Well if Americans were more competitive in the job market, then maybe we wouldn't have this problem. Aren't conservatives all about self reliance?
