NH GOP - OBAMA VISIT: MORE SPEECHES, MORE RHETORIC, MORE DEBT

"If President Obama truly understood New Hampshire, he would know that spending money we don't have contradicts our traditions and values.  Just as families are forced to live within their means, so should the federal government." -- Chairman MacDonald

Concord, NH -- Today, New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement as President Barack Obama continues to prepare for the 2012 campaign with a swing through New Hampshire:

"It's clear that this President and White House have shifted completely to campaign mode because it seems like they are more interested in developing campaign slogans and bumper stickers than with fighting to help turn our economy around.

"What's troubling is the fact that after fooling voters with his first trillion-dollar stimulus bill, now President Obama is coming to New Hampshire to try and sell us on another round of government spending.  Not only is this the wrong prescription to fix our struggling economy, but it ignores the fact that our nation's debt just hit the $15,000,000,000,000 mark.  

"If President Obama truly understood New Hampshire, he would know that spending money we don't have contradicts our traditions and values.  Just as families are forced to live within their means, so should the federal government.  Unfortunately, we won't have that leadership in the White House until we send a message to Barack Obama that we have had enough and force him to find a new job."
