The Republican presidential 2012 contenders are debating and bashing Obama's healthcare plan, blaming it for everything but the earthquake that hit Washington. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney came prepared to strip Texas Gov. Rick Perry of his bragging rights about the Texas economy and try to cut the new front-runner down to size.
Romney, address Perry's claims of creating a Texas economy in better shape than the rest of the nation said, "States are different. Texas is a great state. Texas has zero income tax. Texas has a right to work state, a Republican legislature, a Republican Supreme Court. Texas has a lot of oil and gas in the ground.
"Those are wonderful things, but Governor Perry doesn't believe that he created those things. If he tried to say that, well, it would be like Al Gore saying he invented the Internet."
