Norquist: Obama Toast in Virginia, North Carolina

North Carolina and Virginia, where President Barack Obama is visiting this week, represented key election victories for him in 2008. But the picture is a lot different today, notes Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

“When Obama won the states of Virginia and North Carolina, he was the candidate of hope and change,” Norquist writes on Politico. “Then he governed as the candidate of the labor union bosses, the big city political machines and the trial lawyers. He made the economy worse. He spent money on stimulus failures. Solyndra. Fast and Furious.”

The inroads that Republicans have made in recent elections in the two states show what their citizens think of Obama, Norquist says. “We can wait for November 2012 to learn how Virginia and North Carolina vote for president. But we already know they liked candidate Obama and are not pleased with President Obama.”
