Texas and Parry gave back zero.

Most of Texas jobs came from the private sector.

Bush/Rove merely recycled the tool 70 years later, and FOX has been a vehicle of conveyance.

And, that stimulus monies thereafter supported a state of jobs turnover as jobs destruction was balanced with federally-funded jobs creation and preservation. In fact, U3 joblessness declined from a peak of 11.2 to 8.7% as stimulus monies hit Main Street, and before the present congress was seated and reassert uncertainty.

On the other hand, what is neded to create the job needed is confidence. And Obama had performed poorly, making multiple decisions and errors, yes, even misrepresentations (knowingly or unknowingly, is debatable.

Ironically, Obama is trapped by his own narrow path to success. His experience with the world is shaped by the infamous wheeling and dealing of Chicago politics. And he never saw through it. With his Chief of Staff handpicked from the infamous wheeler and dealer family, the Daly Dynasty, there is clear evidence that Obama is failing to see the fundamental flaws in his decision process with regard to economic policies.

Obama is a much superior orator. In general, it is a good thing, but when excellent speaking skills help to cover up, rationalize, detract from fatal flaws in his overall direction in ecnomic policies, great oratory skills can be a curse for the country, though a blessing for the orator’s career.

Economic facts and figures need to be used with knowledge of what is happening and why. We all know the facts say balance the check book, why can’t the Federal, State and local governments do that. Why can’t politicans, Republican and Democrat do that? Why can’t they LISTEN to the PEOPLE who are the boss? No matter the political party listen to the people follow their ideas and then maybe with common understanding and actions the economy, jobs, debt, etc will begin to cure the problems? Open debate on all congressional bills, open facts etc for the public to see and comment on before any vote by the politicans. Both political parties need to listen to the people. The president does too.

This is populism at its best…you can campaign on any lie, because you are not accountable until elected.

Nobody really asked Gov. Perry what his plan is, other than copying Texas’ job creation record, which can be attributed to Federal stimulus…so in the end, isn’t he saying he opposes federal handouts but doesn’t mind taking credit from them? Or just gut the EPA and we can all get jobs polluting the Gulf (which becomes the next Governor of Texas’ problem, which will require a Federal bailout to fix).

This goes back to the Bush/Rove dynamic of saying it enough times must make it true; at least Rove had the common sense to not have Bush openly lie, but toe the line and let the house organs (FOX News, talk radio) push it into ridiculous falsehoods (why make your media accountable, especially when they are saying what you like to hear?)

“The rich need to pay their fair share!”
I say take ALL of the rich people’s money give everyone a check and that will solve the problem, right? Better yet, let’s continue to support education that fails our kids…. wait, let’s support green energy….wait….can you say Solyndra?….and on and on it goes

How much money do you think is enough?

Do you really think it’s a success when the govt. “creates or ‘saves\'” a job for $250,000?????? Really?

But it sure feels good when we demagog the issues doesn’t it!
