Somewhat odd. Why would half of all new government jobs be created in Texas? Perry is a big spender, worse than Bush, but he didn't spend nearly enough for all these jobs.

Seems misleading, because it starts at 2007. 2007 and 2008 were job bleeding years. The vagueness of that chart is deliberate; Texas has had to increase state jobs in order to expand services because of its population increase from people who are moving there.

Moving there because there are jobs.
