Maybe it's just me....

...but Rick Perry's monetary diversions from the (now broke) Texas unemployment fund to the Texas Enterprise fund* and the (now broke) Texas emerging technology fund (and the resulting Texas A&M deal that came from that) should be a bigger campaign issue than his (wise) refusal of federal unemployment funds which came with attached strings that inflated the cost of the program in future years.

Granted, provided the companies receiving benefits are "correct", most Republicans and Democrats have no problem with corporate welfare, but many independent voters do.

*Steffy almost got there, but in the end he came up short.
