House Roll Call 121 on 2009 House Bill 4747
DING-DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD!!! No more jennifer BAN-holm! We are finally, FINALLY rid of that worthless commie! Let's just hope that the new boss isn't the same as the old boss.
We are now only 100 days away from having a better governor, reguardless of who gets elected. 40 days from now is election day. Only 10 days left to register to vote. Get out and vote, this one's important!
I guess it's Rick. Not the results I expected. A July 20th poll had Dillon ahead of Bernero and Snyder in 3rd behind Cox and Hoekstra. What I read in todays paper confirmed my belief that the Dems have accepted the fact that they are not keeping the chair, therefore they voted for the most moderate GOP candidate, taking Dillons votes in the process. This state is pretty evenly divided into 3rds. 1/3 Dem, 1/3 GOP and (my group) 1/3 moderate/independent. Snyder clearly has the moderate vote. I predict he will win 60-40.
Of the 7 primary candidates, 5 have had a positive voting record in our favor. Only one, George, voted against us. He got the fewest votes, 12,000, or about 1% (coincidence?) Then there's Snyder, who we just don't know. I've heard that he was originally against us, but I've also heard he's starting to see things our way, I really don't know. If he's a "fundamental freedom" Republican, he should support us. But if he's the type of Republican who puts the intrests of big business (i.e. the insurance companies) ahead of what's best for the people, probably not.
I've waited 8 years for this election. I really wanted a guaranteed win-win, not a win-? We need to find out where he stands since he's going to be governor for the next 8 years. I say 8 because in my 40 years of life I've seen 8 Presidents and only 4 governors. Carter, Bush Sr, and soon Obama, all one-and-done. Never in that time have we ever had a one-and-done governor. If Granholm can get re-elected, anyone can. Any of the 7 primary candidates would've done better than Granholm. How could they be worse?!
I don't want to hear any of this "he's not a politician" nonsense. If you run for any public office, much less the states HIGHEST office, you're a politician. He just a politician with no political experience. By the way, where were all of these people 4 years ago when DeVos was running? DeVos or Granholm was a no-brainer. There weren't 6 other choices. Hoekstra is a businessman, who by the way, also has 18 years political experience. Helmet law aside, Michigan is in the worst economic shape since the great depression. Is now the time to take a leap of faith on a guy with NO EXPERIENCE? Minnesota took a leap of faith in '98 when they elected Jesse Ventura, but the economy was in good shape then. I'm just not sure now is the right time. I really hope he does a good job and turns Michigan around. I really, really do. But this state doesn't exactly have a good track record when it comes to picking governors.
I would like to congratulate Hansen Clarke on defeating Kwame's mommy. All of those in the 13th district who came out to vote, NICE JOB! The last Kilpatrick has finally fallen!
