    Oh yes, job creation begins with massive government spending.

    You're a blithering idiot, you really are.

    Government jobs are fine as long as you tax them enough to pay their own wages and benefits. Then they aren't supported by the tax payer.

    And everything else was unchanged? There were absolutely no other factors that affected any of these states?

    Of course there were other factors. Just because one thing might be true doesn't mean that the rest is.

    Why isn't this breaking news on the front page of every rag in America?
    Why is it exclusively features at "Think Progress," the biggest "progressive" movement in America? Gee - think they have an agenda?

    Center for American Progress - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I used to like you but lately you're rambling on like a bumbling idiot.
