    Hey, I think she's GREAT!

    So much, so, I'm going to give up my independent status just so I can vote for her in the primary! She'll be a wonderful candidate on the republican ticket.

    I am just hoping your side stays with Obama!!!
    If they bring in Hilary, they might win.

    Not my side. I didn't vote for him. But I think yer right.
    I think his chances of re-election hinge on how the public percieves his leadership with the opposition congress, and moreso, how the overall economy does. Right now, I'd give him slightly below a 50-50 chance.

    Like I said, Its all Obama's fault.
    You're either disingenous or a moron if you actually read the article and gleaned from the one single, solitary sentence above that mentions Obama that blaming him is a significant component of that article.

    And it may not be all that hard: Pace Krugman et al., Texas’s potential shortfall probably is not $25 billion. The inside guys talk about $11 billion to $15 billion, spread out over a two-year budget. (Texas writes one budget every two years, and has a legislature that meets every two years.) Even the liberal bedwetters over at the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities expect the budget hole to amount to about 10 percent of the whole enchilada, as compared to more than 50 percent in basketcase California.

    But it seems that those higher estimates might be a little more accurate.


    After Lecturing D.C. On His ‘Prudent Fiscal Decisions,’ Perry’s Deficit More Than Twice What He Thought
    Back in September, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) guessed that his state was facing a $10-11 billion budget shortfall for its fiscal 2012-2013 budget, and refused to entertain reports that his budget gap might be larger until he received the state Comptroller’s official report. He even poo-pooed pronouncements from his 2010 election opponent, Houston Mayor Bill White, that Texas’ deficit may be twice what he was estimating. “If [White] wants to be the budget forecaster for the state of Texas, that’s a different job,” Perry said. “It’s called the comptroller.”

    Well, the Comptroller released its report today, and Perry had it wrong:

    Texas is expected to collect $72.2 billion in taxes, fees and other general revenue during the 2012-13 budget, down from the $87 billion used in the current two-year budget, Comptroller Susan Combs announced Monday. That puts the shortfall at $27 billion given that maintaining services would run $99 billion for biennium

    Or one other possibility. I'm just playing the same card your side does with Bush. A non-conservative can't criticize ANYTHING on the right without hearing echoes of "blame Bush....blame Bush..."

    So now I'm just pointing out that everything seems to be Obama's fault now. Thought you'd agree.
