There's no more powerful political weapon in America than a record of generating jobs. And while that holds in any election year, it's especially true in an economic climate featuring over nine percent unemployment. Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) has just jumped into the 2012 presidential election with his state's jobs creation as the centerpiece of his campaign. Referring to himself as "America's jobs governor," Perry has begun releasing ads throughout Iowa that embrace an early slogan, "Time to Get America Working Again."
