Klobuchar didn’t create jobs at dealership

Published 9:50am Monday, October 22, 2012 Updated 11:54am Monday, October 22, 2012

Sen. Klobuchar launched a television ad alleging that she saved an auto dealership franchise from closure.

Does Klobuchar forget that it was her party leader that fingered the dealerships for closure? I don’t recall Klobuchar stating that her party’s leadership taking control of the bankruptcy and restructuring of a privately held company is problematic. After watching this advertisement, it is apparent that she saw this as an opportunity.

Apparently, feudal Lady Klobuchar believes it to be a good thing that she is “connected,” thus able to appeal to the emperor for benefits to her serfs.

I am sure Klobuchar would like to take credit for the employment opportunities created at a dealership in her district, but, sorry Klobuchar, you didn’t build that.
