Obama finally makes it to Michigan to "discuss" our ecnomic issues...

There is much to say about Obama's most recent trip to Michigan. This is his thrid trip to our state since May after refusing to acknowledge our state for over a year.

Our MIGOP Chair Saul Anuzis sums up Barack's attitude on Michigan fairly well:

"He refused to campaign here during the primary, he insulted our home-grown auto manufacturers, and he called us bitter because we go to church and like to hunt. I don’t know who’s advising Obama, but I am sure those things are not the top-three ways to win Michigan. Someone who can make such flippant comments certainly doesn’t have the experience or leadership to be our next commander in chief."

In spite of the fact that Obama was greeted like a "rock star" in Michigan, he isn't doing much to redeem his negligence of our state.

I found a good Op-Ed in the Free Press that encompasses the attitude of many Michiganians:

"Obama tries to have it both ways on free trade issue"

"If Barack Obama really wants to sell his message of hope to American voters this November, he needs to stop treating us like pathetic victims unable to compete economically with people in Mexico or China."

Michigan McCainiacs: we need to get out there and spread our message, from the candidate who has traveling throughout Michigan holding town halls and talking with Michigan workers, not TO or above us.

Don't be fooled by people who say Obama is committed to Michigan because he is spending time here all of the sudden, now that he realizes how much he needs our state. His tour through Michigan does not make up for the year during which he completely forgot one of the most important parts of the country and economy.

Obama's "economic plan" Not Good For Michigan...

...or the rest of the country.

Detroit News: Editorial: Obama's economic plan deserves close scrutiny
June 14 2008


"The senator claims to be a free-trader, but he couches his language on trade in ways designed not to offend voters in industrialized states such as Michigan. He opposes the Central American Free Trade Agreement, a pact that could help America solidify its relationships in a worrisome part of the world, and says he would retool the North American Free Trade Agreement to make it more responsive to American labor concerns."


"Obama would also extend the Family and Medical Leave Act to smaller employers and says he will advocate for more personal leave for all workers. Those policies have the potential of moving the United States toward a European work force model, with its negative impact on productivity and economic output."

Get to Know Senator McCain's Family!

While we all know Senator McCain himself is most fitted to lead our country, we would like to get to know more about his family. I'd like to share with you one of my favorite websites: www.mccainblogette.com This is a blog run by Meghan McCain, one of Senator McCain's daughters and a couple of her friends. While Meghan sometimes discusses politics, the blog concentrates on her travels with her father on the campaign trail-wonderful pictures! She also gives us playlists she is currently listening to, she has a wide variety of taste in music! One of my favorite blog posts, she gave makeup tips. She also gives us more insight to her family which I think is very interesting. She will write blogs such as: "10 Things You Didn't Know About My Mom" referring to Mrs. Cindy McCain, and her brother was even a guest blogger.

This website is wonderful to help keep the younger generation (and older!) interested in politics, in an exciting, and refreshing way. She updates almost daily so there is always something to read. Please check out: www.mccainblogette.com and share it with your family & friends! The blog has even had news stories written about it and been nominated for awards.

Go McCain '08!

McCain Erases Obama Lead!

A new poll (AP-Ipsos) released today shows Senator McCain has cut Obama's 10-point lead and is essentially tied w/ Clinton & Obama. The poll shows that Senator McCain is still enjoying a bounce in the polls since securing the GOP nomination. The poll shows that Clinton & McCain are statistically tied. According to the poll, "About a quarter of Obama supporters say they'll vote for McCain if Clinton is the Democratic nominee. About a third of Clinton supporters say they would vote for McCain if it's Obama." McCain '08!

Aboard the Straight Talk Express!

The following are excerpts from an article Dana Milbank did for the Washington Post. The Senator opens up a bit and as always, cracks some jokes. I included the best parts-enjoy!

As the bus rolls on, Time magazine's Jay Carney reads out a headline from the Drudge Report: "TALK OF HILLARY EXIT."

"I don't believe that," McCain retorts immediately. "My favorite Drudge was when I had the walk-on role in 'Wedding Crashers.' . . . I log on to Drudge: 'MCCAIN STARS IN RAUNCHY BOOBS MOVIE.' So Leno called me up and said, 'I got a great response for you: In Washington, I get to work with boobs every single day.' "

Ladies and gentlemen, John McCain is back.
Left for dead when his campaign ran out of cash last summer, he returned to his endless town hall meetings and freewheeling talks on his campaign bus -- and he's risen to the top of the Republican primary polls in New Hampshire, just as he did eight years ago.

McCain's cellphone rings. It's Sen. Lindsey Graham calling, at 8:30 a.m. "What happened, you have a nightmare?" McCain says with mock concern. "What are you doing awake?"

Detroit News Endorses McCain!!!

With our own primary coming up on January 15th, Michigan's very own Detroit News has endorsed Senator McCain for president!

"No matter whose ox is being gored, John McCain puts the country first. He is the leading critic of congressional earmarks to fund pork-barrel projects. He has co-sponsored campaign reforms to slow the influence of money in politics. He will use the veto pen if necessary to curb the growth of the federal government (nearly 50 percent during the past seven years)...

So Michigan's Jan. 15 competition will be all about Republicans. And in that primary, we endorse Arizona Sen. John McCain with enthusiasm."

For the full article, click here!

Jan 15 is soon. Get excited.

Boston's Other Newspaper Endorses McCain, not Romney!

The Boston Herald's editorial staff has now endorsed Senator McCain! See "Choice is clear McCain's the one".

“There are times in this nation’s history so perilous that they cry out for a steady, experienced leader, a person so trusted that we would put the fate of this country in his hands. This is one of those times, and Sen. John McCain is that person.

In an age when too many candidates are driven by polls and focus groups, fashioning and re-fashioning their “core” beliefs, McCain is a man of unwavering conviction and integrity. His values, his beliefs, his goals are what they were when he first entered public life, what they were in 2000 and what they will be a decade from now

On immigration reform, on tax reform, on campaign reform McCain has proven time and time again that he has the ability to reach across that increasingly wide partisan divide and make things happen."
