I found a way, but an awkward way to do the above. Here are the steps
Ctrl-9 to open math cell (I am inside a text cell) then typed
x Ctrl[6] 2 (this is the same as Ctrl^2 for superscript
now I selected x again (did this to prevent the parenthesis from being
created) and typed Ctrl[-] 1 for subscript
But now the "2" and "1" are not on the same level, so now I selected the "2"
and typed Alt[Left] few times until it is aligned over the "1". Alt[left]
is Nudge Left (use the arrow key)
Ok, the output is ok, but too many steps to do, and I think Latex looks
little better? Here is screen shot for Mathematica and for latex to compare

I hope there still a way to do this easier in Mathematica.
