Klobuchar: Economic Issues Will Highlight State Of Union

By Bruce Hagevik, NewsRadio 830 WCCO

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar expects President Barack Obama will talk about jobs in his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

“The country needs to come together on one track on jobs, private sector jobs,” said Klobuchar.

The Minnesota democrat believes economic issues will dominate the speech.

“I want to hear from him about reducing government spending and looking at how we’re going to attack this deficit,” Klobuchar added.

Obama issued a preview of the speech during the weekend in which he said the stock market is up and corporate profits are healthy again. But he said there’s more work to be done.

Obama will address Congress and the nation at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

    Klobuchar is a political Hack who votes for every spending bill and pays lip service to cuts…she know exactly what the Head Hack is going to talk about! We are being lied to again!

    “American Voter’s are Being Scammed”

    With the recent increased discussion, focus and push to garner the Hispanic/Latino vote for what some believe to be the “necessary votes” required to win the Presidential election of 2012, one must wonder if the American voter (no matter what ones’ ethnicity) is being scammed. The simple fact is that the scare tactics currently being forced upon the American voter concerning the “Hispanic Vote” is an inadequate representation of the truth.

    The discussion – disingenuous to say the least – leads one to ask …. are Americans to assume that neither the Republicans nor Democrats have any plans to address the issues of a sensible legal immigration system, ending illegal immigration, enforcement of our immigration laws and border security.

    Are the American Voters being riled up over an issue that is quite contentious, for the purposes of involvement and funding, only for neither party to stand up for the demands of the American majority to secure our border and enforce our immigration laws? Have you ever pondered exactly what percentage of the donations received by – your party of choice – actually is used in a manner against these demands or used to promote the party, in a language other than English – for one example?

    However, there are solutions – but first, lets look at some facts:
    —- 38 percent of Hispanic’s voted Republican in 2008, this is an increase of 11 percent over 2004, which only shows that the GOP is gaining in this demographic, at a time when the issue of illegal immigration continues to be on the forefront of the political scene.

    —- There were approximately 28,890,000 million foreign born individuals living in the U.S. per the Department of Homeland Security in January of 2008. Of that number (per the same report) 11,600,000 were – what they term – resident unauthorized population – a number many believe to be higher.

    —- Further break down on these numbers show that of the 11,600,000 illegal aliens in the U.S. approximately:
    7,000,000 were from Mexico
    570,000 from El Salvador
    430,000 from Guatemala,
    300,000 from Honduras and
    180,000 from Brazil
    with the remaining number of illegal aliens from China, Korea, India and “Other” Countries
    – The easiest common sense solution would be to address illegal immigration in the U.S. and to secure the borders, but seeing that these demands have been answered with empty promises since the IRCA Amnesty of 1986 – let’s look at additional solutions.

    – Voter Identification/Integrity.
    Of the 29 million foreign born individuals in the U.S. in Jan 2008 – by the Department of Homeland Security’s own finding – approx 40 percent are illegal aliens and hence should be barred from participating in our voting electorate. States that immediately take action on this front, prior to the 2012 elections – would indeed be serving their constituents versus those illegally in the Country
    – Corresponding With Our Elected Officials –
    Ensuring that your voice is heard …. We must continue to correspond with our elected officials and representatives – those sworn to serve the American People.

    For example:
    1. Where is the distinction of legal resident versus illegal alien in this push for a specific ethnic focus segment?
    2. Where is the discussion of unity versus segregation by ethnicity?
    3. Where is the discussion from the GOP (and the Democrat’s I might add), of the foreign born citizens, those who followed the law – jumped thru all the hoops to obtain citizenship – who now want to weigh in on the future of this Country – a Country by the very action of citizenship .. They swore allegiance to – unlike the illegal alien with no allegiance?
    4. Where is the discussion of the Rule of Law?
    5. Where is the focused discussion of jobs and cutting spending? Specifically with the recent reports that Los Angeles County via County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, that the welfare benefit’s for the children of illegal immigrants cost more that $600 million last year? Or, the statistics released in a recent Reuters article – that 1.1 million new migrants who entered the U.S. since 2008 have landed jobs while the U.S. household unemployment rose 6.26 million and that approx 35 percent of these individuals are illegal aliens.
    6. Where are the discussions of actions this Administration are currently taking to undermined the rule of law and promote illegal immigration?
    And finally,
    7. Where is the discussion – AND THE CANDIDATE – that will make these distinctions, discuss these issues and represent American’s – versus pandering, pushing and acting on what they believe … is best to get them in office and power?

    Cache – ……….. yawn…… same old, same old.

    Now contrast Amy with Bachmann. Who would you rather listen to or trust?

    The only time you hear from or see Amy in the news it’s because she’s done something, is working on something. EVERY TIME you see Bachmann in the news, she’s just doing her self servicing lip flap. Nothing more.

    • Cache

      #2 it is hard reach you liberal La La Land utopians…Normally one has to repeat something 7 times for it to stick…but we have to keep at you utopians because no logic seep in?!?! Amy is dissembling bender of the truth…I can’t stand looking at her vs listening to her. Michelle is a truth teller that is why you utopians cringe!

  • Joe

    Looking at Amy gives me the heeby geebies. What is with that smile that she always has on her face? Even when interviewed about the shooting in Arizona she had that freaky smile on her face. Sorry libs, I can’t stand looking at her and I hope and pray that she will be gone when her term expires. If Michelle Bachmann doesn’t run against Obummer I hope she will consider a run against Amy.

    • Sam

      #1 A freaky smile is a reason to want someone out of office?
      #2 You think Klobuchar has a freaky smile, but you want Bachmann, the queen of the false, freaky smile, to run for president?
      #3 Seriously. You want Bachmann, the nutjob who should be in the behavioral health ward of her local hospital, to run for president? Being totally serious here; Listen to her talk. She is paranoid. Insanity is not a trait we should encourage in our politicians.

  • Joe Hanson

    Will Senator Klobuchar be introducing legislation that will prevent future occurrences of what happened in the abortion clinic in Pennsylvania?

    …Gosnell frequently delivered late-term babies alive at his clinic, then severed their spines with scissors, and often stored the fetal bodies — along with staff lunches — in refrigerators at the squalid facility.”

    • Sam

      Two things about this:
      First of all, “late-term” is not a medically or scientifically defined state of being. It can be used to describe any fetus/baby at all, and still technically be correct. So please, clarify.
      Second, there is already legislation to stop this kind of thing. If a baby is born, it is now a person. Killing a person is called homicide. Abortion is the termination of a fetus (a “baby” that has not been born). Whether or not abortion is legal in a given state doesn’t matter. What you described is not considered to be an abortion by courts, it is homicide.
