by Javier Manjarres

Florida Chief Financial Officer and occasional Shark Tank guest contributor Jeff Atwater gave an upbeat and inspiring speech to the attendees of the Indian River Tea Party held at the Indian River Fairgrounds in Vero Beach last Saturday.

Why are we so afraid to admit it then- that it exists, American Exceptionalism?

Barack Obama, when he accepted the nomination four years ago in Denver, he said “let us fundamentally change America.”… Why would anyone want to fundamentally change America?… He went after jobs, now there are less jobs. He went after healthcare, now there are fewer doctors.  He went after energy, there’s less petroleum.  I am convinced that if we put Barack Obama in charge of the Sahara Desert in 36 months there’d be a sand shortage.” – Jeff Atwater
