9781936661558: Turn This Car Around: The Roadmap to Restoring America

Our nation has become one full of apologies and Politically Correct (PC) statements. It’s time for the true right to make a political comeback. Former Governor Robert Ehrlich has written the roadmap – Turn This Car Around. He urges the American public to make a real change and address (with him) the issues of union strangleholds, Obamacare, a failed stimulus package, soaring energy costs and high unemployment, the race-card, the Living Wage war, bipartisanship and other heated topics. Ehrlich notes thatour education system is not meeting the needs of our children, race relations have been derailed and the family structure is crumbling. This needs to change. There is too much at stake for the country and our culture.

Turn This Car Around is a call to action, and a blunt collection of dispatches from America’s culture wars, retold by a former state legislator, congressman, and governor who fought on the front lines. Bob Ehrlich recounts the contentious battles he waged in the widely recognized liberal state of Maryland, and provides insightful suggestions to help resolve many of the issues in America.

About the Author:

The Honorable Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., is senior counsel in the Government Advocacy and Public Policy practice group at King & Spalding. Having served as Governor, U.S. Congressman, state legislator, and civil litigator, he counsels clients on an array of government matters, with particular expertise in health care, finance and economic development. As Maryland's first Republican governor in 36 years, Governor Ehrlich launched construction on 123 statewide transportation projects in four years and managed the most successful military base realignment and closure strategy in the nation. He toughened penalties for sex offenders, drunk driving, and witness intimidation and established Maryland’s first Office of Homeland Security.

Governor Ehrlich earned national commendation for empowering individuals with disabilities. He created the nation’s first cabinet-level Department of Disabilities, for which he earned the Highest Recognition Award” from the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, among other awards.

Prior to serving as governor, Congressman Ehrlich won four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In Congress, he served as a member of the House Majority Whip team, wherein he helped pass comprehensive tax relief, greater access to health care, federal education reform, and the first balanced budget in a generation.

He also served in the Maryland House of Delegates from 1986 to 1994, representing Baltimore County.

Prior to running for public office, Ehrlich was associated with the Baltimore law firm of Ober, Kaler, Grimes and Shriver, where he practiced civil litigation for eleven years. He was a founding Member and Partner at the law firm of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice PLLC in Baltimore.

He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from Princeton University in 1979, where he captained the freshman and varsity football teams, and his Juris Doctorate from Wake Forest University in 1982.

Governor Ehrlich is married to Kendel (Sibeski) and they live in Annapolis, Maryland with sons Drew and Josh.

Review:


Bob Ehrlich is one of the smartest Republican politicians in the country. And he has a lot to tell us in Turn This Car Around. It's both a compelling memoir of his time as Republican governor of a Democratic state and a riveting collection of political lessons he's learned. His advice on dealing with the media is especially persuasive.”
Fred Barnes, Executive Editor, The Weekly Standard

Governor Ehrlich has delivered a concise, well-written road map on behalf of America’s common-sense majority. This book is required reading for those who strive to restore the economy, culture, and reputation of America to its former greatness. And you won’t find a finer foreword!”
Rudy Giuliani, America’s Mayor” and former Mayor of New York City (1994 2001)

Governor Ehrlich’s frequent confrontations with special-interest groups in often hostile environments speak to his strength of character and strong leadership skills. This is a roadmap worth reading.”
Gary Williams, Coach of the University of Maryland men’s basketball team, 2002 NCAA Tournament Champions

Turn This Car Around offers a unique biographical and political perspective by a moderately conservative former governor of arguably the most liberal state in the union, Maryland. His accounts of riveting political battles, many of which he won despite the daunting political cards arrayed against him, is a tribute to Gov. Ehrlich’s charisma, honesty, and political and rhetorical know-how.”
Richard E. Vatz, Ph.D., Towson Distinguished Professor, Associate Psychology Editor, USA Today Magazine
