From the Mitchell Daily Republic’s “Republic Insider,” editor Seth Tupper takes a moment to slap around Democrats for their hysteria over the newspaper saying “good job” to Governor Daugaard for the recent budget surplus:
I?ve been amused by the rabid nature of the Democratic reaction to our editorial praising Gov. Dennis Daugaard for turning a budget deficit into a surplus in just two years. The budget turnaround seemed an obvious bit of good news to us. How could it be bad news? Would the Democrats have preferred Daugaard to double the budget deficit rather than convert it to a surplus?
If Democrats want to have any voice in that discussion with what, barring a miracle, is likely to be a Republican majority, they?re not helping their cause with all the bomb-throwing they?re doing now.
