I said here last night that the California GOP audience cheering the announcement that Texas has executed 234 condemned murderers under Rick Perry was a vile, repulsive thing.

Democrats Fear New York, Nevada Losses
Democrats are facing the very real possibility that a pair of special elections on Tuesday will shake the foundations of the 2012 political landscape. The party is at serious risk of losing a House race in New York City that few thought would be close, and campaign officials are already close to writing off a Nevada House race they had once hoped to contest.
If Republicans win both contests, it would raise fresh concerns about President Obama’s drag on down-ballot Democrats and the party’s ability to keep its Senate majority. The losses would also raise questions about whether the party can gain the 24 seats it needs to regain the House.

WILL HARRY REID TRY TO CALL OUT THE ILLEGALS AND HIS SON TO HELP AGAIN…………….WITH THE SEIU WATCHING (hahahahahaha) OVER THE VOTING MACHINES.

More truths for Jumbo to consider"

Austin suffers brunt of job losses
By Laylan Copelin | Friday, August 19, 2011, 09:23 AM

Employment results for TEXAS were mixed in July. The state added 29,300 jobs but its UNEMPLOYMENT RAQTE INCREASED to 8.4 percent,…

Overall, Central Texas HAD A NET LOSS OF 6400 JOBS as modest gains in the private sector were not enough to overcome the loss of public sector jobs.

"Nothing to cheer about, Mr. Perry"

The numbers are similar; which deserves the applause?

234: The number of executions in Texas since Rick Perry has been governor.

271: The number of CONVICTIONS REVERSED, including many capital cases, by DNA evidence since the creation of the Innocence Project.

"During Perry's time in office, five death row inmates in his state have been exonerated, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.

One person who wasn't so fortunate, Cameron Todd Willingham, was executed under Perry's watch, even as new evidence suggested he was innocent.

Perry intervened to halt the exculpatory forensic process in the Willingham case, replacing three members of the Texas Forensic Science Commission."

http://www.nj.com/hudson/voices/index.ssf/201...

To cover his own a*s, Rick Perry was perfectly willing to execute an innocent man. PERRY RUSHED TO AVOID HAVING THE TRUTH COME OUT.

Ok, great, Rick Perry still has to his credit more jobs developed over the last ten year, more than all other states combined. Now when you can overcome that one truth, call me.

Dear God, Jumbo - do you not understand RATE of unemployment?

Yes, Texas has a lot of jobs BECAUSE TEXAS IS A BIG STATE. That does not affect the RATE of unemployment.

Lord help us - Jumbo is STILL confused, as even he has admitted.

SWEET CHEEKS, The Obama administration just on their own reduced the number of jobs in America since taking office. If Obama used the same number of jobs as when he took office, unemployment would be 11.5% and underemployment would be at 20%. Don't try to spin crap about Perry, worry about your clown in chief that has promised jobs since 2008.

"Rick Perry executes justice, Texas-style"Tuesday 13 September 2011 15.15 BST Perry may have lost no sleep over Texas's 234 executions during his tenure, but the death penalty panders to crude bloodlust

"Being a native Texan with basic respect for modern civilisation means living in a constant state of low-grade humiliation, as the state's size provides an interrupted stream of news stories highlighting the cranks and Bible-thumpers who win state and local offices – but a presidential campaign means exponentially expanding the amount of national and international attention paid to the streak of mean-spirited ignorance that rules Texas politics.
