Governor Snyder, Where Are The Jobs?
Headline on the press release I expect to see from the Michigan Dems on February 1.

We give this guy NO time to adjust to the office. He promised to produce and we need to hold his feet to the fire. Track his every move. Give on no quarter. Install a countdown clock. Whatever it takes. And we need to begin grooming our candidate for 2014 and fundraising for that candidate TODAY. Who will it be?

2. And the next headline after that should read:
MDP TO CLEAN HOUSE, INSTALL NEW LEADERSHIP!

Sorry, you all are likely not surprised to hear that from me. Can I get an OY VEY?

3. We have some major
problems here in Michigan. One we have a Michigan Democratic leader who is disconnected from the people. Two the inclusiveness of the Party.Michigan is very Diverse and a good candidate will be able to speak to that diversity. Also the Michigan Democratic Leader would make him or herself known to every Democratic Voter in Michigan. Three voter education. Our voters are fed false information on a 24/7 cycle that allows for little truth. They keep a lot of confusing elements to distract from the obivious theft of America, especially in urban areas to confuse voters.

5. It could be
The main problems the Democratic ticket face was this
1.money:The campaign didn't have enough money to counter "I'm just a guy that wants to help Michigan" message Snyder and his allies in the media was pushing.

2.Media: The only liberal station in the Detroit area is 1310 WDTW but there hasn't been a local talk show host at the station since what mid 2006 or early 2007 when you had Nancy Skinner hosting the morning show. Other than Ed Schultz giving Virg Bernero a platform where have you seen him in the press? His "Let it Rip" segment was too short. Plus it doesn't help when the three major (Yes I have to count the Michigan Chronicle as major newspaper because I know people who read it) newspapers recycle Snyder's talking points.

3. Backing from Dem leadership: Where the hell were they? Other than Bill Clinton I didn't see too many Democratic officials especially those in the city of Detroit pushing for Virg.

9. 1st agenda item - "Reinventing Michigan"...
In other words - SLASH WAGES AND BENEFITS ON THE MIDDLE CLASS!! (making my rich friends even wealthier!!)

Kinda ironic that an OVER-PAYED former CEO is telling workers they are over compensated for their work. Even more ironic is the middle class he is targeting are the ones who elected him!

Prepare for much more pain Michigan!!

12. It's February 3 and I haven't seen a single job created yet
This guy is a miserable failure. He's had way more time to turn Michigan around than the GOP gave President Obama and he hasn't done it. OUT!

13. Well first we pay companies, not small biz mind you, to set up their shell game in Mi
We give them OUR tax breaks with a supposed 6% flat rate. When they don't pay even that, we deliver a graduated no tax (Oh yes, the republican wet dream in MI.) and then we offer them our communities, homes 1st born--whatever.

And then magically we wake up one day to Schwarzenegger State. Think we can't go more broke? Watch what happens.
