Team Obama: Perry Record a Carbon Copy of DC Republicans (Except He Created Half Jobs in US Since 2009)

It’s going to be very difficult for President Downgrade, the worst president since the Great Depression, to battle Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) on his record.

Between June 2006 and June 2011, only nine states plus Washington, DC added any net new non-farm jobs. Of those states over that period, Texas added 2.75 times more new jobs than the others combined. (Willisms)

So you’ll have to excuse democrats for having such a week response to the news today.
Team O says Governor Rick Perry is a carbon copy of DC Republicans.
The Hill reported:

Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) record is a “carbon copy” of Washington Republicans, President Obama’s reelection campaign said of the newest candidate for the GOP presidential nomination.

The Obama campaign sought to lump Perry together with the Tea Party, and charged that his economic record as governor, about which he often brags, is not being what it seems.

“Governor Perry’s economic policies are a carbon copy of the economic policies of Washington Republicans,” said Ben LaBolt, the Obama campaign’s press secretary.

LaBolt pointed to Perry’s endorsement of the “Cut, Cap and Balance” approach to addressing the debt-ceiling that many of the other presidential candidates had backed. That plan passed the House, but failed to make its way through the Senate.

“That’s the same approach he took in Texas, where middle class families know his economic record is no miracle – it’s a tall tale,” LaBolt said. “Governor Perry allowed special interests to write their own rules, hired corporate lobbyists to oversee corporations, and cut funding for programs that would create opportunity for middle class families.”
