“On Aug. 31, with job creation grinding to a complete halt, U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was asked this question,” according to Investor’s Business Daily: “Why do you think there have been so many jobs created in the last decade in Texas?”
She laughed and said, “Come again.”
The questioner rephrased his query, adding a citation: “The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas estimates about half of the jobs created in the U.S. in the last decade have been created in Texas. Why do you think that is?”
Replied Solis, “I haven’t done a lot of research in terms of the economic growth in Texas.”
Nearly a year ago, the Willisms blog noted, “There’s a blueprint, folks. Don’t expect Democrats to follow it.”
Can’t follow a blueprint when you don’t know what to look for — or your goal is to produce something very different than what the people who voted for you want.
