MSNBC tried to mock Perry and said Texas is drowning in debt. Uh really? That's the argument they go for? The state debt argument? Glenn destroys that weak point on radio today.
"The new jobs report has just come out and unemployment benefit applications jumped 9,000 to 429,000. It's the biggest jump in a month. So congratulations on that. Meanwhile, the state that stands against everything this administration is doing is creating half of the jobs that have been created in the entire country. And nobody in the media is even looking into that. Nobody in the media is even curious what Texas might be doing," Glenn said.
And why is MSNBC going after Texas's debt situation?
"Now, I'm no fan of debt but every state has debt Forbes magazine did an analysis of the debt of every state and found that Texas has the fourth best overall situation in the country, behind only Nebraska, New Hampshire, and Utah. What do you say we start listening to those four states? What about the crazy amount of debt MSNBC and others are so concerned over?" Glenn asked.
"Anyway, Texas has 1/6th the debt per capita of New York, 1/7th of New Jersey, 1/8th of Massachusetts, 1/9th of Connecticut."
"Now, let's not forget that S&P just gave Texas government bonds an AA‑plus rating, said the state's economy will likely recover quickly than other states. Texas is now the number two largest economy, passing, you guessed it, MSNBC's New York. It is also one of the three biggest gains in economic size of any state in America, at any time in the last 50 years, not to mention from 2008 to 2010, Texas added more than 165,000 jobs."
"When you hear Barack Obama take credit for all the jobs created, the majority of them were created in one state that is run by policies that are in complete disagreement with what the president's policies are. That's weird. Both of them can't be right."
