    Where do you get this crapola.

    Factor out the illegals Obama doesn't have control of, and get back to us, asswipe.

    He's a fourth term Gov with what percentage approval ?

    Get back to us with that too, a-hole.

    From the Texas State Legislature? Here, maybe this will help. You know, for all the stuff you write, you sure come across as a "dumbfuck". Are you like that in "real life"?

    I, for one, welcome a Perry candidacy. Let's let the rest of the country take a good luck at this so-called "miracle" in Gov. Perry's Texas and see just how much of the rest of country would like to be like Texas.

    OMG< it's another Rick Perry Thread! We haven't had one of those in like, what, ten minutes.

    By one of our usual suspects! Seriously, man, nothing scares a liberal like a cowboy.

    Hey, guys, why don't you ever start a Mitt Romney Thread.

    I'd love to see the thread on "Mitt Romney's Massachusetts".

    Or "Barack Obama's Illinois" (Or Barack Obama's America, for that matter.)

    Given that people are moving out of places like Illinois and New York and people are moving down to Texas, I'd say that they are voting with their feet.

    "SAT scores - 45th" according this this link Commonwealth Foundation - 2010 SAT Scores by State

    But as you can see, any state with higher than a "20% participation rate" (TX has 71%) is nowhere near the top 20 on the list. Most of the so-called top 20 only have single digit participation rates, for example South Dakota has a 3% participation rate and yet they rank #6....hardly fair when 97% of their studens didn't participate in the test. You can tell just by looking at the chart, that when more students take the test, the states overall scores go down.

    % 25 and older with HS diploma -50th, as well as Birth rate stats and uninsured---

    Yet again when you consider Texas' high illegal population (2nd only to CA) as well black population(20th) and hispanic(2nd), it really isn't surprising as all states with higher % of those populations rank lower.
