CONCORD – House Speaker William O’Brien (R-Mont Vernon) and House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem) offered the following comments in response to Vice President Joe Biden coming to the New Hampshire State House to file for his and President Obama’s re-election.
House Speaker William O’Brien
“Earlier today, Vice President Biden said that the nation ‘needed a stronger Republican Party.’ Thankfully, the disastrous leadership of President Obama is strengthening the Republican Party everyday. From the failed economic policies of this administration that are bankrupting our nation and our children’s future to the President’s reckless and resolute commitment to higher taxes and more regulations that are robbing the confidence of our employers to create jobs, the Obama and Biden Team is doing more for inspiring Americans to embrace the fiscally responsible message of the Republican Party than anyone else. If the 2010 election wasn’t enough evidence of the strength of the GOP, I’m sure the Vice President will be given an even greater display in 2012.”
House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt
“It’s nice Vice President Biden is able to join us in New Hampshire today given his busy schedule touting President Obama’s Stimulus 2.0. His extreme rhetoric has not only been inappropriate—likening the GOP’s pro-economic agenda to a rape scenario—but also downright wrong for America. It’s nothing but a job killing measure and continued failed policy from the Administration that calls for even more spending that Americans and Granite Staters simply cannot afford. The best way to handle the economic reign of terror Obama and Biden have had on this country is by electing a new president in 2012 and we are working extremely hard toward that end.”
