OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin says President
Barack Obama and his policies are getting in the way of
entrepreneurship and used an oilman's business success story as an
example of pursuing the American dream.
During her speech Tuesday night at the Republican National
Convention in Tampa, Fla., Fallin praised the nomination of Mitt
Romney and running mate Paul Ryan.
Fallin cited the important role Oklahoma plays in the nation's
energy production and its low unemployment rate of 4.9 percent.
She used Oklahoma oilman Harold Hamm as a success story, noting
his rise as the son of a Lexington sharecropper to the chairman and
CEO of Oklahoma-based Continental Resources. It is one of the
nation's top 10 domestic producers of petroleum liquids.
