The President’s Delusions of Grandeur
For Immediate Release: May 6th, 2012
Contact: John Scott
John Scott, Chairman of the Young Republican Federation of Virginia, issued the following statement in response to the President’s visit yesterday to VCU:
The issue is simple. Since President Obama has taken office, young professionals now have to face a dreadful future: 1 in 2 will be unemployed or underemployed. What’s more frightening is this President still has delusions of grandeur that they will all blindly support him.
Brand it with what slogan you wish — ‘Hope’, ‘Change’ or ‘Forward’ — young professionals are not falling for the President’s hollow rhetoric. On the contrary, it galvanizes unaffiliated young voters who see right through his failed promises.
Despite the President’s efforts, Virginia is the nation’s best place for folks to work and live. And it’s because of the efforts of our hard-working Republican leaders that have lead to an increase in economic freedom and a decrease in unemployment: Governor Bob McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling and Attorney General Cuccinelli, as well as our General Assembly.
Bottom line, the President said when he was elected that he will fix the economy, and if he failed, he deserved only one term. Young Republicans in the Commonwealth are committed to helping the President keep his word by turning Virginia RED this November.
