Excerpts from the Charlotte Observer
By Reince Priebus
March 6, 2012
"President Obama drops into North Carolina for a speech on the economy today. But while a presidential visit can be an exciting event for any state, presidential speeches cannot heal the broken economy. Nor can they cover up the president's record of failures: high unemployment, a failed stimulus, onerous regulations, Obamacare, higher gas prices, record debt, and more.
"Over three years since President Obama took office, families in North Carolina are still hurting. Unemployment remains unacceptably high, despite Obama's massive $833 billion stimulus.
"Worse still, his policies have made life harder for Americans. With excessive regulations, he has made it more difficult for job creators to do business...
"When President Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of regular gas was $1.84. Today, it's over $3.75-and climbing. Americans are paying the price for Obama's failure to tackle the cost of energy over the last three years...
"Our current path is unsustainable, but the president offers North Carolina no solutions-only speeches. And voters are ready for a new direction.
"North Carolina Democrats know this. They know they are headed toward defeat in November thanks to the unpopularity of their policies...look no further than Gov. Bev Perdue, who has decided not to run for reelection...
"North Carolina deserves a president who stands up for economic growth, not one who stands in its way. And in just a few months, they will have the chance to elect one-the chance to send a Republican to the White House."
