Doublespeaking U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan tries to balance mining support with work on climate change

“It makes no sense to express concern about climate change and support projects that go in the opposite direction,” said Aaron Klemz, communications director for the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy.

Face it Nolan is another doublespeaking politician who has built his doublespeak skills since the late 1970’s in DC.

    Nolan is between a rock and a hard place. The truth is you can’t be even vaguely pro-jobs/mining and advocate for his fans in the radical environmental movement. They don’t want mining, period. Of course, to win he sold his soul to these people. Now with a substantial and highly-likable candidate, Pete Stauber, threatening his reign–he has had to take a rational position.
    We can only hope that Stauber makes it clear–should Ricky win again, he’ll go right back to being anti-mining. Stauber won’t.

    DFLers are dumb and both sides, the tree huggers and rank & file will vote for Nolan. Reality is Nolan has done nothing to effectively help the new mining operations to get hundreds on new high paying jobs created. Yes the DFL dumb will vote Nolan in again.

    True enough, Mike–but what you will also not hear via our esteemed media is that Trump did far better up here than anyone expected. Heck, if Chip Cravaack hadn’t decided to move to New Hampshire (true, for family) he might very well have won.
    It’s still hard as hell for anyone even vaguely ‘R’ to win up here, true–but those times are softening as people see people like Nolan surrounded by weirdos from the Bent Paddle crowd.
