Perry is a rubber stamp of Dubya Bush. Not so sure if he's as much of a warmonger.

Scares the shit out of ya, doesn't he??? LMAO

Created more jobs in Texas than nobama and dems created nationwide since 2006. Weathered the economic problems better than any other state without raising taxes OR dippiing into Texas rainy day fund of 10 Billion, the best in the nation. Retired Air Force Captain who flew the C-130 Hercules when slick and nobama were smoking pot and slick was pissing off the England to avoid the draft.

Get worried boy, the nation is beginning to look his way. They're tired of nobama and his Chicago thugs.

Saw a gallup poll that had Oblunder 8 points behind a generic Republican. The 2012 president election is going to be a landslide victory for whomever the Repubs nominate.

Gov Perry has the best chance of all the Republican candidates of getting the nomination, and who ever has the nomination will be the President in 2012. Obama has proven his lack of experience, his inability to unite the country, and his determination to destroy this great country without firing a shot. It is time for him to go back to Chicgo and play some golf.

He has run TEXAS in a way ,Texas is the envy of the nation.....no community worker he..the man has huge experience....his record of the economy in Texas proves that.....money talks ,and Bull shit walks...not so with this guy....AMERICA could use a leader.....

The Lone Star State now boasts the second largest economy in the country, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

Texas' move is one of the biggest economic shifts in the past 50 years - and with the momentum of new growth, new companies and new national attention, now is the time area business recruiters are hoping to bank on these opportunities.

Inside Caterpillar's Waco facility, hands are hard at work. More than 300 local workers found jobs with this construction giant thanks to the company's decision to open up three facilities in Waco. Caterpillar Vice President William Springer says, "Waco is also very nicely located to serve both North and South America."

The geographic appeal of Texas as a whole is just one factor that boosted the state to the second biggest economy during the past decade. Economic forecaster and President of The Perryman Group in Waco, Dr. Ray Perryman says there are several reasons Texas is moving up the list. "For many, many years," he says, "Texas was really behind everyone else and we began to catch up with the enterprise fund in 2003 and the technology fund in 2005 and since that time we really have moved to the front of the pack."

That position is because of a favorable cost of living and diverse industries. Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce Vice President Jim Vaughan says, "We focus on advanced manufacturing, healthcare, professional services and aviation."

Just last week, Pactiv Food Service in Temple announced 86 new jobs.

In Killeen, the Aegis global call center will hire 800 people by October. Daniel Scroggins just nabbed a job there after moving to Texas from California, the only state topping Texas' economic size. "There weren't a lot of jobs there so I came here, wanted to start over," says Scroggins.

Now the spotlight on Texas' economy is only shining brighter with the nation talking about Governor Rick Perry's possible presidential run and his economic strategies. "There's speculation about what Gov. Perry might do," says Dr. Perryman, "because a lot of his message is the Texas success story economically."

Dr. Perryman says the strongest industries in Texas are technology and healthcare-related.

While the state is rapidly growing, economists say cuts to education and healthcare could have lasting effects on the economy in Texas

Lunatic my ass! Read it and weep, bitch: http://www.politifact.com/texas/statements/20...
Politifact doesn't lie. Perry is responsible for 850,000 jobs. I won't vote for him because some of that was wasteful public-sector jobs, but how many has the Socialialist-in-chief created, HUH???

Obama continues to sit on the sidlines and pretend he is to mediate the very crisis he caused.......

APPROVE: 44%...

Obama sneaks Dalai Lama into WH; no press, no Oval -- no tie...THAT'S OK, HE SNUCK BILL AYERS, THE HEAD OF ACORN AND THE SEIU IN SEVERAL TIMES ALSO.

GOP leaders ignore Obama's 36-hour deadline for a debt plan...

Budget Director Won't Answer If WH Would Prioritize Social Security Payments...OBAMA DOES NOT HAVE THE CAPABILITY NOR THE ATHORITY TO STOP SOCIAL SECURITY. CONGRESS DOES.. This is all the man child can do ..........scare old and disabled people.

LOL!!! Hard to say if he's the reason I'm scared.

See, you & people like you told me Sarah Palin scared me. And Sharon Angle. And Christine O'Donnell. And Newt. And Rick Sanatorium. And Pawlwnty. And Bachmann...

Now this guy? You have so many scary candidates, it's impossible to know who traumatizes me!(giggle!)

The Texas economy was in very good shape when Bush left, after he repaired the damage by Ann Richards.

I agree, Obama probably will only do one term.
But Rick (Slick Rick) Perry?
Give me a break.
Only a few months ago he wanted nothing to do with the U.S.
He wanted to succeed from the U.S.
Now he wants to be president?
What a joke.
Perry is only interested in one thing and that is what is good for Perry.
He would take advantage of his own mother if he could gain something personal from it.
Look at all of the other contenders. There are a lot better ones than Perry.
