16. That poll where Granholm and Bush split blame for the economy should be a warning...
Edited on Sat Aug-09-08 11:16 AM by tokenlib
Granholm is becoming a scapegoat for a lot of people and not just republicans. One poll had the blame split 50-50 between Granholm and Bush. It is irrational and unfair to the governor--but a reality. With over one tenth of the population unemployed (the state unemployment office was swamped with UI extension applicants), and even higher numbers underemployed--the bitter, despairing and angry could turn the state.

Obama in his economic speech promised to rejuvenate the auto industry--but there are a lot of us, even strong Obama supporters who think McCain was actually closer to the truth (though an idiot for saying it) when he said the jobs aren't coming back. Jobs of the future are a great long term solution---but what about the masses here that need real relief right now--not everone has the freedom to go back to school even if the state pays for it--those are the votes that could win or lose the state. And it is a large proportion of the state that has yet to be measured or reported on.

I'm not trying to be a wet blanket--I just know we have a fight on our hands..

Lastly--do not fret about the lack of Obama signs and stickers--they are not widely available yet at offices---if you don't see them after they are easily obtainable--then you can be concerned. Most people wait to get them from offices.
