Dan Gainor, Business and Media Institute joins Thom Hartmann. Rick Perry is a big government "socialist!"  While Governor Good Hair is on the campaign trail touting his impressive record of job creation - census data shows most of that Texas job creation was thanks to...the government. Between 2009 and 2010 - Governor Rick Perry added a higher percentage of government workers than any other Governor in the country - hiring more than 17,000 new government workers. Of course this is the same guy who claims the government can't create jobs. But his actions show Rick Perry seems to get the simple economic truth that the government is the employer and spender of last resort when the economy falls on hard times. So why isn't he preaching this message now that he's running for the White House?
