Greetings, Mr. President, from Florida Republicans

by Jack Fowler

POTUS is in Jacksonville to brag about local job creation and to pressure congressional Republicans to bankroll “shovel-ready” jobs programs. Not so fast on the credit-claiming, says the Sunshine State GOP, which today runs this “Eye Off the Ball” ad in the Florida Times Union saying the surge in private-job creation comes courtesy of Republican Governor Rick Scott’s program of tax cuts, regulation cuts, and debt reduction, and advised Mr. Obama that while “It is flattering you want to take credit” for Scott’s success, “it would be better if you learned some lessons” from him.
