Worst Vote I've Ever Cast....Amy Klobuchar Voted 'Yea' on Iraq...


Military Families Speak Out Read letters from MFSO Members to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi calling on her to show leadership and de-fund the war
"Stand strong when you explain that de-funding the war is not de-funding or abandoning our troops. Let the American people know what we as military families know – that de-funding the war will not leave our troops without equipment or supplies."

From Crooks and Liars Mike’s Blog Roundup By Mike Finnigan on Saturday, May 26th, 2007 "The executive direction of the DCCC wants me to believe that passage of continued funding for the lraq war is a great Democratic victory"

From Awakening "When I unsubscribed to the democratic party websites the other day, they wanted to know why and I wrote that my reasons don't really matter..."

U.S. Deaths Near Grim Memorial Day Mark STEVEN R. HURST May 26, 2007 "We're out there on the streets a lot more. There are more patrols going on every day, so we're more open to attacks," O'Hanlon said.

Senator Klobuchar said...I'm running for U.S. Senate because I believe now more than ever we need real change and real leadership in Washington.


Senator Klobuchar said.....Securing our Nation and Changing Course in Iraq "While I support the invasion of Afghanistan, I disagreed with the decision to invade Iraq. After three years, it has become obvious to those who favored the war and to those who opposed it that the Bush-Cheney administration was not truthful about the reasons they gave for invading Iraq, nor were they truthful about having a plan to secure the peace and protect our troops once we invaded."

Citizens Asked for withdrawal of the AUMF....send a message that foreign policy run amok will no longer be the order of the day. Citizens asked to CUT OFF WAR FUNDING. Citizens asked for End to Iraq Invasion / Occupation. One Thousand US Troops Present Petition for Iraq Withdrawal to Kucinich in January 2007.

Klobuchar and Walz vote for blank check for President Bush by The Big E Fri May 25, 2007 "However, Klobuchar has no excuse. She won by over 20 percentage points. I have higher standards for her. The fact that she is ignoring the 76% of us who think this war is going badly and 63% who want us out of Iraq is appalling. Her seat is not at risk and I expected more leadership from someone who was sent to Washington with a mandate."




I gave all of my votes to the Democratic Party 2006, even though I am an Independent. It was a personal decision that I struggled with, up until I cast my vote.

It took me 23 years to vote straight democratic ticket...never again, no more, no matter what, especially not in 2008.

The Democratic members who voted 'Yea' are lacking critical thinking skills, foresight and courage.

So tell does one pay for an ongoing invasion already lacking in needed equipment and services for the troops and come up with the money for actual U.S needs -- mainstream needs??? More tax dollars from us?

Oh yes, how does one replace money lost to ongoing -- outragious government fraud and waste, in Iraq and here at home?

Then how does one come up with the money to pay attorneys to prosecute all of those real fraud and waste case when they actually hit the light of day? More tax dollars, from us?

And where does the money come from to put your pet projects into play? More tax dollars from us?

Don't we owe the whole world? More tax dollars from us?

There are so many items on the list....more tax dollars not called tax dollars, from us?

I am a tax payer, who actually believes that my tax dollars can work for the benefit of all...they used to anyway.

Democratic party members that voted 'Yea' have entered that special gold tipped GOP bubble preserved from the 109th Congress. Yes, that includes Senator Amy Klobuchar.

I have never, never regretted a vote, till now. To note...Klobuchar voting along the same lines as Rep. Michele Bachman, is too much. Now I have two public servant representatives that I am not comfortable contacting with my concerns. Great. Who's left?

The Dems that voted 'Nay' are such a minority in the Senate, that I guess I will have to back off from hoping for real change.

Dear Senator don't stand up in front of the camera's and tell me "I will have to understand." I don't think you realize, its you who didn't understand, didn't understand why I helped cast my vote to elect your majority.

Get it, it was me -- who along with so many others, helped you to become elected to 'be' my voice, to be his voice and her voice, to be our voice. Not a war mongering voice, but a voice for Peace, Truth and Logic. "You have flat out failed to be my voice."

Thank you to the (D), (R) & (I) Senators who voted 'Nay' Thank you for being the voice of reason. Keep up the good work!
