Letter to the editor: Democrats will try to rewrite history before the election
It is an election year and many of our politicians will be attempting to rewrite history. That will be especially true of the Democrats, who have embraced President Barack Obama's liberal agenda. Millions of dollars will be spent trying to help us forget.
Rep. Earl Pomeroy will hope no one recalls his votes for Obamacare, bailouts, massive deficits and the so-called stimulus package.
Even hopefuls in the Democrat party like Heidi Heitkamp will try to run from her very public support of the government takeover of health care and the public option.
And, of course, no one will want to stand next to Obama during this election, even though they endorsed him just a few months ago.
If we are ever going to change Washington, we have to hold our politicians accountable and measure them by their actions, not their words. And to do that, we have to remember.
