It is interesting to watch the Democrats during this 2010 election year. They have perfected the art of “saying nothing, very loudly.”
The Democratic minority leaders of the Legislature had an article in the daily papers declaring Gov. John Hoeven and the Republican majority in the Legislature had nothing to do with the oil boom. Once again, they are saying nothing, very loudly.
Rep. Merle Boucher, D-Rolette, N.D., who is running for yet another statewide office, proclaimed, loudly, of course, that it was the Democrats who made the oil boom happen.
The fact is the boom happened because of the hardworking men and women of North Dakota. The leadership of Hoeven and the Republican majority in the Legislature provided the tools necessary to make it a reality. Combine all of that with farsighted business leaders and entrepreneurs, and you have a recipe for success.
The handful of Democrats in Bismarck have done nothing to help North Dakota’s economy. They are still living in the 1930s. Their prescription for North Dakota is more taxes, more unions, more regulations and more big government. They are invested in failure, both in Bismarck and Washington.
North Dakotans do not like failure. That is why they will elect Hoeven as our next United States senator. Finally, we will have a senator who will change the climate in Washington and actually get something done for our state and the nation.
When Hoeven goes to Washington, you can count on the Democrats, here and in Washington, to continue to bray loudly and say nothing.
