Where are the usual suspects to blame Obama for this? Most damning was the graph showing Kansas, US average employment, and California's. OUCH. To me, the most important omission is the implication that California's and Texas' growth are fueled (ha) by two completely different factors. Texas growth is definitely because of oil and gas drilling and the continued, inflated price of oil. There's no California Miracle, but there certainly isn't a Texas Miracle, either.
