11. Other than the die hards on either side of the aisle, any vote in Mi. is up for grabs.
Unless or until one of the candidates provides hands on programs or policies to absorb the mess of the shock of Shafta, no one is certain. And I'm not talking about some stupid jobs program that barely meets the needs of a small slice of residents.

I think the unemployment figure is very deceptive. Most people I know, and I know many and across the various political terrain, are scared to death of losing their jobs and homes.

The patient is in critical condition and the Doctors have visited a handfull of times while pelting us with their advertisements of the crummy job the other guy will give?

Give me a break. Nobody and I mean nobody in Michigan is going to buy this crap. Sure Biofuel initiative are great but what will it do for jobs,homes, medical care and schools? Not much.

The Obama campaign should pay close attention to the proportion of likely voters in Michigan, review and review again the viability of the registered voters (Republicans will have tricks up their sleeve) and promote a point by point 4 year plan for Michigan inclusive of regional differences.

At this point I suspect McCain is farther ahead in the thinking of families than Obama.

Wake up Democrats!
