Blue state economy -vs- red states
Can someone explain why the red states are enjoying better economic growth while bluer states are losing jobs? This was a report I heard on NPR today and I didn't quite know what to make of it.

1. It is so Blatantly Obvious you refuse to admit it.
I cannot help you if that is the state of your denial.

5. I didn't make the claim - I heard it on NPR
Are you saying people don't actually live in the red states? Do they really commute from blue states to work and then drive home?

4. I will give this a shot
The Blue states are the industrial states. You know the jobs we are losing thanks to Bush's record 3 mill job loss.
