She’s just one more progressive from Minnesota and little else.
She also represents the state that brought the comedian Al Franken, the Somali Muslims and Muslim wife beater Keith Ellison who left the U.S. Senate to run for Minnesota Attorney General and lost.
In 2006, Amy Klobuchar became the first woman to represent Minnesota in the U.S. Senate.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar was born and raised in Minnesota and attended Yale University and University of Chicago Law School.
She pursued a legal career before she was elected Hennepin County attorney in 1998.
In 2006, Klobuchar became the first woman to represent Minnesota in the Senate. She was re-elected in 2012 and 2018.
In the Senate, she serves on the judiciary, economic, commerce, agriculture, printing, rules and library committees.
By one ranking, she’s cosponsored more bills and gotten more bills out of committee than her peers.
Klobuchar raised her national profile during a Senate Judiciary Committee last fall for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman when they were both in high school.
When Klobuchar asked Kavanaugh whether he ever had had so much to drink that he didn’t remember what happened, he turned the question around. He asked Klobuchar, “Have you?”
Unruffled, Klobuchar continued as Kavanaugh asked again.
Kavanaugh later apologized to Klobuchar, whose father is an alcoholic.
“When you have a parent who’s an alcoholic, you’re pretty careful about drinking,” she said.
“I was truly trying to get to the bottom of the facts and the evidence.”
A December poll had Klobuchar pulling 10 percent of potential Iowa caucus-goers, according to Politico.
That put her in fourth place among potential Democratic presidential hopefuls, led by former Vice President Joe Biden with 30 percent, Sen. Bernie Sanders with 13 percent and Rep. Beto O’Rourke with 11 percent.
As the 2020 Democrat primary race begins to heats up, the proglodytes are jumpin’ out of the trees.
No social position is too radical as candidates try to one-up the competition and out-progressive each other.
It also means that no federal program is too expensive, and no tax hike is too high.
The Democrats have basically become the party of “free stuff” as they promise to cover the cost of your life from the cradle to the grave. It’s what you’re supposed to be offering.
Apparently, no one got the memo to Lady Senator Amy Klobuchar. CNN was nice enough to throw a coming out party for the Lady Senator in the form of a Town Hall Meetin’ hosted by the Stupidest Man in Cable News, Don Lemon.
At one point, Senator Amy made it clear that she has no intention of giving young liberals types four free years of higher education.
She said she’s not “a magic genie,” so they’re out of luck.
Demanding a yes or no answer, a college student asked Senator Amy if she would be willing to stand with their generation and end the student debt crisis by supporting free college for all, even asking if she’d include undocumented illegal aliens and ex-convicts in the program.
Klobuchar basically told him she’s not on board with free college for future Starbucks baristas.
He didn’t state what he actually studied and why it was so expensive.
That would have been helpful data, since most people are tired of hearing liberals say they want hard working families to pay more taxes so whiny snots can major in interpretative dance.
Don Lemon pressed the point that on a college campus she would probably be facing a lot of similar inquiries from kids who are all in for that free stuff her opponents are offering.
Klobuchar responded that “major tax reforms are needed in terms of reversing some of the things that this administration has done, and then some of it is making sure that students are getting degrees and being led to jobs where we actually have jobs.”
I’m going to skip the usual point about Dems who ignore Obama’s massive debt hike.
I’m also not going to get into the fact that she’s complaining about jobs, when Trump’s policies have, unarguably, been responsible for the most extraordinary job growth America has seen in a long time.
Instead, I’m just going to say, kudos to Senator Amy.
She’s probably alienated much of the left-wingers, she’s angered young socialists and, by refusing to promise all those free goodies we’ve been hearing about, she’s probably doomed her already slim chance of success.
But at least she answered honestly…
