Report: Bob McDonnell not invited to CPAC
Add Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell to the growing number of Republicans who weren’t invited to CPAC. The Washington Post reported Tuesday that organizers for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference did not invite McDonnell, who as The Post points out has come under fire from his own party for supporting a transportation deal that would also increase taxes. McDonnell is a potential presidential hopeful — just like another possible 2016 GOP candidate who CPAC snubbed: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Politico

Rubio in 'same place' as Jeb Bush on immigration
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio says he still backs a pathway to citizenship for the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants after Jeb Bush appeared to reverse his initial stand on the hot-button issue. Rubio says not allowing the illegal immigrants to apply for citizenship -- after the border is deemed secured -- would create problems that have occurred in other parts of the world. Politico

Why Newt Gingrich Could Be the GOP's Mr. Fix It
Newt Gingrich says he knows exactly what the Republican Party needs to do to start fixing itself: “You need inclusion, not outreach. Outreach is when five white guys have a meeting and call you. Inclusion is when you’re in the meeting.” The Fiscal Times

Budget Breakthrough? Or Government Shutdown!
President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner have ruled out the prospect of a government shutdown later this month when the current spending authority lapses. But after all the budget falderal, could something as dramatic as agreeing on a continuing resolution be so easy? Both the president and the speaker have strained their credibility on how much appetite exists for compromise. And both are pretty good escape artists. The Fiscal Times

Rick Perry bars way to possible Texas deal with feds on Medicaid expansion
Some leading Republican lawmakers, while they dislike the federal health law’s call for states to expand Medicaid, would push harder for a deal to bring home some of the billions offered if they didn’t fear Gov. Rick Perry would undercut them. Perry adamantly opposes the Medicaid expansion and recently underscored his view that such a move could harm the state’s future solvency, even as some fellow Republican governors reversed course and urged their states to accept the federal money.

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Urban areas have all kinds of assets that are easy to spot. They have the population, so the labor shed is not usually an issue. Urban areas are also connected by better roads, rail and air service and many have river and deep water ports. Usually Internet access and other forms of communication are more efficient in urban areas. And you have a larger array of quality of life options to choose from, such as the cultural assets found in metropolitan areas.

Demographer Wendell Cox recently analyzed the largest gains in holders of bachelor's and post-graduate degrees between 2007 and 2012 in the 51 metro regions in the U.S. of 1 million residents or more. The results were published in Forbes magazine and the South dominated the ranking.

After I finished the cover story for this issue, I read an interesting article by economist Paul Krugman, the op-ed columnist for the New York Times, titled, "Partying like it’s 1995." Generally I side with Krugman, even though I am a journalist, not an economist. Occasionally, though, I read some of his stuff and ask myself, "What planet did Krugman come from?" Like when he predicted a shift of automotive assembly to Canada after Toyota announced a new plant in Woodstock, Ontario in 2005 because of "free healthcare," among other benefits. That Toyota deal was the last major automotive assembly plant announced in Canada and I predict it will be the very last one for the Canadians.

If you have ever seen one of my presentations, then you know about the word "reshoring" and how that phenomenon has lifted the spirits of even the most skeptical Southerners regarding the future of the region's economy. After all, in the last four decades, manufacturing has suffered a bloodletting never before seen in U.S. history. The biggest factor behind the slow and long meltdown that began in the 1990s was the herd mentality to offshore manufacturing capacity to cheaper locales, primarily by U.S.-owned companies.
