Perry blasts Obama over jobs

August 28, 2011

Texas Gov. Rick Perry blasted President Obama’s handling of the economy and says his own record of creating jobs qualifies him for the White House.

Perry told nearly 400 activists that he’s created 1 million jobs while governor of Texas, all during a stretch where the nation was losing 2.5 million jobs. Perry says he’ll take a record of cutting taxes and regulation to Washington and says the Texas rebound proves that it works.

Perry was joined at a county GOP picnic by fellow candidates Ron Paul and Thaddeus McCotter, but Perry was getting the bulk of the attention.

Perry pointed to claims that record levels of food stamps are helping the economy grow, and says that’s a sign of failure.
