    The debates haven't started yet. Right now the Republicans are running for the nomination. They haven't started debating Obama yet. The same thing was said about Reagan and Carter when the 1980 election was getting started. The Democrats said Reagan was unelectable and Carter was beating him nearly 2 to 1 in the polls. The Reagan got the nomination and started coming after Carter with both barrels. We all know how that election turned out.

    I don't think '80 will be repeated by anyone. You don't see people win elections in the fashion Kennedy, Nixon, and Reagan won anymore. Back then, every state was a swing.

    As much as I like her I don't think Bachmann is going to get the nomination. It's going to be between Obama and Perry and Perry is already putting me in mind of Ronald Reagan.

    I wish the quality of a candidate's ideas or their overall character was more important than their ability to wrest power for their party.

    I like Romney too, but just as soon as he gets the nomination the Democrats will throw his Mormonism in his face (even though Harry Reid and John Huntsman are both Mormons) But then that might be a plus too. The same thing was done to Kennedy and his Catholicism, but he still got elected.....barely.

    Oh, I see, someday, somewhere! I thought your cats were ready to roll??? So you don't worry about Perry's job myth being exposed as huring him more in the polls than he already is?

    Democrat lies are just a sign of fear. They're already trying to start in and Ed Shultz has already been called on it. I would much rather prefer Perry's record over Obama's any day.

    Thanks for your opinion.

    "But instead of speculating, let's look at the data. The Lookout used jobs data compiled by the Department of Labor to determine which industries have gained jobs in Texas since June 2009. Here's what we found:

    • Roughly 39,000 out of the 302,000 new jobs created in Texas since the recovery began -- or 13 percent -- were in government. And 82 percent of those new government jobs were in local government. Texas's public sector has expanded by more than 2 percent in the past two years -- very nearly as fast as its private sector.

    • Another 39,500 -- just over 13 percent -- were in oil and gas extraction, or in support activities for mining, a category that includes oil-field services companies.

    • Even more -- 78,000, or 26 percent -- were in home health-care services or "ambulatory health-care services," while an additional 64,000, or 21 percent, were in "administrative and support services". Another 43,000, or 14 percent, were in "employment services."

    • And 24,000, or 7.9 percent, were in "food services and drinking places" -- restaurants and bars, essentially.
    Together, those categories account for nearly 95 percent of the new jobs created in Texas.

    The manufacturing sector, which nationwide has seen renewed growth in recent years, has lost 1,800 jobs in Texas over the same period.
    These numbers complicate Perry's story of a free-market paradise in the Lone Star State."
