President Obama is counting on Floridians to pay attention to today’s speech rather than his abysmal record.  Let’s get online today and make sure that doesn’t happen.  Follow @BrowardYRs and @FFYR for updates throughout the day.

Washington Flounders While Florida Leads

Five years ago the Obama White house told America, because of historic new spending and government intervention, to expect a robust economic rebound and lots of new jobs. But the economy sputtered and few jobs materialized.

After countless pivots back to jobs, this week’s unemployment news proves again that Americans cannot trust their President to fix the economy and put them back to work.  Voters are understandably frustrated and we share their concerns.

Here’s the truth about our economy:
  •       Year-on-year, the number of “discouraged workers” (unemployment dropouts) has risen by 206,000 people.
  •      The U-6 (total) unemployment rate jumped significantly from last month, from 13.8% to 14.3%.
  •       Current jobs growth rate of 195,000/month would take the economy until 2021 just to return to pre-recession employment levels.
America’s unemployment picture looks dismal.  That this week’s news “beat expectations” is even more insidious.

President Obama has lots of excuses for his poor performance on the economy and jobs: George Bush, Republicans in Congress, the Arab Spring, poor forecasting, weather patterns, even ATMs. Did we mention George Bush?

If the President wants real economic recovery, he should turn to Florida, where Republicans have proven it possible to cut taxes and spending, streamline regulations and create a huge jobs boom in the process.

Economist Steve Forbes pointed out the stark contrast between Washington and Tallahassee in a recent op-ed:

“While reducing the size and scope of Florida’s government, [Governor] Scott has cut taxes five times in a little over two years, and …overseen the elimination of more than 2,300 regulations on businesses and residents…

“The results are in: Since Scott took office, almost 350,000 new private sector jobs have been created – halfway to the goal he promised during the 2010 campaign – and the state’s unemployment rate has dropped to 7.1 percent. That’s down 4 percentage points since he took office …

“Governor Scott’s 2010 campaign slogan was simply ‘Let’s get to work.’ By any measure he has certainly delivered.”

In Broward County, unemployment has fallen from 7.2% last April to 5.6% this April.  Enterprise growth championed by the Governor has led Port Everglades alone to support over 200,000 jobs statewide.  We are noticeably better off than the 11.1% statewide unemployment that liberal Charlie Crist handed Governor Scott two years ago.

So, where are the jobs? 

The answer is clear. Economic growth has centered on Florida and other Republican-led states.  The voters are paying attention and noticing results.

When will this White House do the same?

President’s Message: Stand Up!

Fellow Young Republicans,

Obama Offers Liberal Vision: ‘We Must Act’

That’s the top headline of today’s New York Times.


When a left wing editorial like the NY Times describes your agenda as liberal even from their point of view, you bet your bottom dollar — it is!


In his second Inaugural Address, President Obama made clear that the 48% of Americans that voted for the other guy could, effectively, kiss it.  Never having to face the voters again, Mr. Obama intends to enact every left wing dream he was unable to force upon the voters the first time around.


Think I’m kidding?  Listen to President Obama in his own words, when he thinks the microphone is off.  He already pledged unequivocally, “This is my last election. After my election, I’ll have more flexibility (to the Kremlin).”


Pseudo-conservative David Brooks, who also writes for the NY Times, concisely said of the second Obama inauguration“It was about collectivism…  Four years ago it was about trans-partisan, healing divides… Now he’s in the fray.  He’s picked a team.”


Believe me, that team doesn’t represent you.  So, when will President Obama get to work enacting his more flexible, more liberal agenda?  Immediately!  In fact, he’s already started.


Presidential Historian Richard Norton Smith says that second term presidents like Obama know they have effectively six months to effectively govern before they face congressional mid-terms and become lame ducks.


Knowing what we know, I call upon Young Republicans to stand as firmly as ever against the coming onslaught of left wing goodies President Obama intends to unleash upon our country.  It is up to us to support our elected officials as they fight for our values in a Washington that doesn’t care what our half of the country thinks.


Over the next 6 months, we will be stepping up our presence online, on air, and on the ground.  We have to let America know that we have a voice too, and we intend to use it.


I encourage you to stand firmly with us. When you hear false liberal narrative, call it out — by name!  When Washington negotiates away our future, call your representatives.  Write letters to the editor.  Follow and tweet to Republicans and tell them you’re counting on them to stand strong.


The next two years literally depend on whether or not you and I have the wherewithal to stand up and say “No!” to President Obama and lockstep liberals.  Let’s politely — but firmly — show the president that he does indeed still have to answer to the 48% that said “No!” to bigger government, more spending, and pawning away our children’s future.


I leave you with the legendary battle cry of a time honored war hero and veteran Republican standard bearer:


“Stand up!  Stand up!  Stand up and fight!  Nothing is inevitable here.  We’re Americans.  We never give up.  We never quit.  We never hide from history; we make history.”  — Senator John McCain  (watch the video here)
