Texas gets more boost... CNBC ranks Texas number one for biz...

Is it just me or does Texas win another accolade every single day it seems? Best this, best that... mostly from publications not based in Texas.

This one is the coveted "Best State to do Business" from CNBC (link). Excerpt follows...

They say everything in Texas is big, and that sure goes for its stature in business.

With the biggest point total in the history of our study, Texas posts a big victory as America’s Top State for Business 2010.

Top Five

Texas reclaims the top spot from last year’s winner, Virginia, which slips to No. 2. Texas was last on top in 2008, and Virginia took the crown in the inaugural year of our study, 2007. That leaves Texas and Virginia dead even in the battle for bragging rights at two wins apiece.

Rounding out the top five are No. 3 Colorado, No. 4 North Carolina, and No. 5 Massachusetts, which makes its first appearance among America’s Top States for Business.


I said it during the primary between Rick and Kay and I will say it now... when your state is the best place in America there simply is no rationale for changing horses in mid stream...

What is Bill White going to do... go out and make the case that Texas is terrible, so people should elect him? Nobody believes that.

Or will he try to make the case that even though Texas is the best, it is time for change?

Kay tried it. Bill White is trying it. It doesn't work. People like results. Rick has delivered the best economy in the country... something it was usually in the top 10 for but rarely number one or two when he took over...

The facts are pretty clear. Texas has created more new jobs than any other state. More private sector jobs. Top exporting state... these are things that don't happen when you elect liberals like Bill White...

There are a lot of reasons Rick beat Kay and will beat Bill White... but this economy thing is the tops by far...

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
