And we have yet another article about the republicans debt, kind of getting old now. Once again, no mention of the democrats debt. I know the reps are the ones that talk about fiscal responsibility but I don't seem to recall the dems ever running on racking up massive debt.

Thank you, Mr. Tevlin, for the succinct summary. And these are the folks that want to govern our state??? Thank you, but not interested.

There's nothing that gets old about documented illustrations of Republicans who can't walk the talk. Apparently Joe and Jane Sixpack need frequent reminders that the GOP really isn't about them, because they sure haven't figured it out yet.

The DFL's current financial problems are, once again, being discounted by the local media, as though they too don't have their own money problems. Instead, and because the Red Star is, and remains a voice for the DFL; we get more articles like this. Does this disqualify them from writing about the financial woes of this party? No. But after article after article about the GOP's remaining debt service and how poorly they've handled their own internal finances, we, the people, have heard enough. The one thing I'm certain of, is that the state GOP will get their ledger back on the right track. Especially with the new party leaders in place. Then, perhaps, we as Minnesotans can get back to trying to solve the social and societal problems we face as a united core front, and not the divisive partisan disciples we've become.

Never, in all my life, have I ever read a more convincing argument on the validity of Marxist economic theory. Thank you, Comrade Tevlin.

clairjr - "Then, perhaps, we as Minnesotans can get back to trying to solve the social and societal problems we face as a united core front, and not the divisive partisan disciples we've become"...Just as long as we agree with your views of the social and societal problems, right?

@jbpaper @clairjr has it occurred to you that the reason you don't see so much coverage of the DFL's debt is it's about a tenth of the GOP debt, and the rent is paid? I understand not wanting to donate to the MNGOP when your money is just going to go to the recount lawyers.

In a way it's like a typical scandal: it's not the debt, it's the coverup.

It's been a while since I have seen such a large group of finger pointers as the MN GOP. I also see in the comments that the GOP supporters are quick to do the same thing. "Yeah well how come nobody asks about the DFL debt?" This is like a second grade approach. Hey maybe if I quickly accuse someone else or change the subject I can avoid any scrutiny. Geeze, are you kidding. Blame solves nothing. We don't care who has messed up in the past but WHAT IS YOUR PLAN MOVING FORWARD GOP? On a national level too, what is the plan, not the anti Obama plan. What is your proactive plan?
