The right spent all their efforts in making Obama a one term president. They had no backup plan. They failed. Now they have to wear the label Jindal described.

"In April 2011, a group of 11 California state officials traveled to Austin to see what they could learn from Texas. The state had added 100,000 more jobs than California during the previous 12 months, and its 8 percent unemployment rate was nearly 4 percentage points lower than California’s. Less than a year and a half later, the Golden State is ahead. California added 365,100 nonfarm jobs in the year ending in July, a 2.6 percent increase and the state’s largest 12-month gain since 2000. "

DOH! Your welcome California. Even though it's the land of fruit and nuts, we still helped them. Well I didn't personally, but our officials did.

Not to mention unemployment is still what, 3% higher than TX. Did you read this article? It's quite flattering to us.

"California still has the country’s third-highest unemployment rate, at 10.7 percent, compared with Texas’s 7.2 percent. And although job growth in California has surged ahead recently, Texas has outpaced it in 18 of the past 24 months. "

Obama's jobs council shutting down Thursday

So much for Mr Obama trying to create jobs. What a loser.

Sure, you say that now. Just wait until all those nitwits start changing Texas into the hell they were trying to escape. Don't think it'll happen? Look no further than CO for an example of what an influx of CA nitwits will do. Good luck!

I don't know about all of the numbers in the OP, but I do know the Misery index has been going down, unemployment has dropped 1.4 %, average cost of food is 150 to 300 a month per person, 300 being those that ate out nightly. So that ones off also. Now as for housing, it is getting worse. The cost to buy a house keeps going up.

Some of the op may be correct , but some is not.

I agree wholeheartedly with this one, Obama won North Carolina, no way he coulda done that without all the northerners leaving the hell they created up there, to come down here and vote the same way they did up there. Makes you wonder huh?

So...does that mean you guys think the numbers are incorrect? Or that those are not the metrics that really matter? Or is it that you think the numbers are correct, but President bears no responsibility for them, so he gets a pass? Or is it that you just don't care?

It certainly couldn't be obama's fault. It HAS to be Bush's fault. obama is perfect in every word and deed. Has he EVER taken any responsibility? I know he is the first to grab credit, but responsibility? NEVER
