If Texas Gov. Rick Perry is “seriously considering running for president,” as my Examiner colleague Phil Klein reported (http://washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/2011/06/reports-rick-perry-white-house-bid-looking-more-likely - broken link), he has a ready-made campaign issue that could be his ace in the hole.
“Since the recovery began, 38 percent of all the jobs created in American have been created in the State of Texas,” Dallas Federal Reserve president Richard Fisher told CNBC’s “The Squawk Reserve” Tuesday.
“My district has more employment now than before the crisis began,” Fisher added.
Imagine a one-theme presidential campaign based on the simple fact that while President Obama was out there destroying American jobs by the millions, Perry was busy creating them in Texas.
Fisher cited the lack of a state income tax, and Texas’ business-friendly regulatory environment for its economic success, which has catapulted the Lone Star State to the top exporter in the U.S., surpassing California. But “the most important thing that’s happened to us is tort reform,” he said.

It's not from him, but he could easily use this argument to win, wonderful governor, a real winner

Everyone should watch this 2009 video. It's called "Texas Succeeding." If Perry decides to run and his people can update the video, I have no doubt he'd not just be a winner but a landslide winner. The funny thing is he's not even in the video. He doesn't have to be. Scroll down the page to see the video. This is what would make me vote for someone, an actual record of doing something the country needs and being successful at it.
