she's pretty far left. She only speaks of the uber progressive topics and as if business is the cause of all our problems. Many Democrats know that our country is not vested into this type of thinking and she would be trounced if she ever got to the general election.
Yes, we have a president with a thin resume and even thinner experience in the real world. But EW's fate is decided on her positions that are even farther left than our very liberal president.

It was the left's need to force banks into bad loans to the masses of people that could not afford them. Forced 'equality' is never successful.

I think you better add many, many names to that other than Kline.

Posted on 12/10/14 at 01:05 pm in response to Can Klobuchar’s Minnesota Nice melt Senate deadlock in 2015?

The senior senator has done nothing except be a rubber stamp for this president and offered nothing of substance in her time in office. If anything, her votes for the ACA and then repealing the medical device tax was nothing more than taking the lollipop from the baby and giving back the almost eaten stick.
She will not get Congress to agree. There's no need because it's too late. The Dems completely wasted their majority on their efforts to swing the country too far to the left...

the part about Lake Erie being warmer. All lakes are warmer in November than January and February. Duh.

Posted on 10/20/14 at 07:39 am in response to GOP targets Met Council as campaign issue

What's crazy is that business interested MUST be taken into account. The Met needs to ensure that people have vibrant places to live; create a climate the entices business to start, grow, and thrive; give the easiest way for these companies to move their goods or provide their services; and also make ways of getting people to work as easy as possible.

The Met is way, way, way to Minneapolis and St. Paul centric. It's as if the downtowns are the only places of light and should be THE...

I just wish I had $700,000 period. Gotta love liberals with money to burn. The delusion reaches farther than just people mad at him.

Republicans don't protect the wealthy, it's actually Dems who do. Punitive and ever increasing rules for people to make money creates more barriers to people moving into the middle and upper class. The wealthy will always have money and the more you tax those who want to make more money, the harder it is for people to keep the money they earn and their families and creates more disincentives to work hard. The only party that supports that is the Dems.

Posted on 06/05/14 at 07:26 am in response to Entenza’s late move to take on Otto draws ire of DFL leaders

He has never been in politics except to advance himself. He's got lots of corporate money, mainly from his wife's work, and he wants to use the auditor position as a soapbox.

Matt, if you want to run policy, run for other office. The auditor's job is to make sure things are run smoothly and the money goes where it is legislated to go. You have that position all backwards.

Funny stab at a private organization - while run amok for a few years - is on the way to actually pay back their debts. It's not like our DFL friends who raised $2 billion in new taxes plus over $1 billion in the most recent bonding and also raised our state's spending over 12% on the backs of other people's money. At least the GOP is getting money on their own for their debts unlike the DFL who thinks they own all of our money.
