Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem dropped the hammer on Joe Biden Wednesday after Biden made a boastful comment on Twitter.
Joe Biden sent a message to the American people saying, “My message to everyone struggling right now is this: Help is on the way.”
Enter Kristi Noem who won the day with a quote from Ronald Reagan: “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
The full quote from Reagan is: The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’”
Reagan said in his famous speech:
“Some sectors of our farm economy are hurting, and their anguish is a concern to all Americans. I think you all know that I’ve always felt the nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
“A great many of the current problems on the farm were caused by government-imposed embargoes and inflation, not to mention government’s long history of conflicting and haphazard policies.
“Our ultimate goal, of course, is economic independence for agriculture and, through steps like the tax-reform bill, we seek to return farming to real farmers.
“But until we make that transition, the government must act compassionately and responsibly.”
Kristi told Fox News earlier:
“I had a real honest conversation with the people in our state. I told them I took an oath to uphold the Constitution of our state, of South Dakota. I took an oath when I was in Congress obviously to uphold the Constitution of the United States.
“I believe in our freedoms and liberties. What I’ve seen across the country is so many people give up their liberties for just a little bit of security and they don’t have to do that.
“If a leader will take too much power in a time of crisis that is how we lose our country. I felt like I’ve had to use every single opportunity to talk about why we slow things down, we make decisions based on science and facts, and make sure that we are not letting emotion grab ahold of the situation.”
