« Job Growth: Texas Still Dominating. | WILLisms.com | More Spectrum, More Jobs. »

Since the beginning of Barack Obama's administration, Rick Perry's Texas has added more jobs than all other states combined.

Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 951 -- Jobs, Jobs, Jobs-

Barack Obama's jobs record on job growth is pretty miserable, and people generally understand that fact, even if they don't know the specific numbers. Under Obama's tenure, the nation as a whole has netted job losses of 1,987,800. Texas, meanwhile, has added 105,100 jobs since Obama was sworn in. The other 49 states combined plus Washington, D.C. (excluding Texas) lost 2,180,800 jobs under Obama. Among the handful of states that have added jobs in the Obama era, Texas has added 62.56% of the 168,000 net new jobs.

Here's a graph of this latest data, from the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

Well, you might say, that's just under 3 years. Data can be skewed over such a short period of time.

Okay. Rick Perry has been Governor for 11 years. Let's take a gander at his job creation record compared to the rest of the nation over that full time in office.

As you might expect, it's a little lower than the three year range, but it's still nearly half of all jobs. This in a state with about 8% of the nation's population. Nearly as many new jobs as all other positive job growth states combined. Under Rick Perry, Texas has added 1,091,400 jobs. The rest of the nation combined has lost 2,082,100 jobs.

Flashback: data through the end of October 2011, just last month.

Meanwhile, BizJournals.com just noted that over the past decade, there are only five cities among the largest 100 in America to regain jobs lost during the recession. Four of them are in Texas. And San Antonio has nearly at its all-time peak, as well:

You can sort these tables in all kinds of ways, but notice which cities top the list. Five Texas cities, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C.

Rick Perry helped guide Texas to greatness, even in this economic situation we're in today. He can do the same for the nation. 2012 will be a jobs election. Rick Perry is America's jobs Governor. It's time for Rick Perry.
