22. Great New Granholm Answer-Ad
Just caught a really good Granholm "answer ad" for the first time yesterday; it seems to be the most recent. Granholm is facing the camera and speaking directly to the audience the whole time (always effective):

Granholm: "Ford's announcement last week hit hard. My Administration is taking action, to offer workers the opportunity for retraining, education for new jobs, and to help our people afford health care, while the auto industry re-tools, to compete. And I'm working the most aggressive plan in the Nation, to diversify this economy. There's a lot more to do. But no one'll work harder to go anywhere and do anything, to bring jobs to Michigan. No one." (While she is speaking, the web address appears across the bottom of the screen; to give more information.) Paid for and Authorized by Jennifer M. Granholm for Governor.

This is good for two reasons: First, it tells what Granholm has been doing as the economy has been getting worse, sliding toward Depression because of unstoppable Republican greed, crime, and deregulation. This is all going to become even more important, as the foundations of the economy collapse completely, from the National/Bush Admin./neocon globalists and their "policies," and, second, it answers some of these DeVos ads that claim that Granholm is "responsible" for the (national, remember) recession, and is doing nothing. Granholm and her Administration are among the best for getting new businesses and Government grants, research programs, and etc., here, and it should be kept public. She is doing a lot.

Devos, meanwhile, has a few weird new ads, (mentioned on other threads), one of which uses this routine of tying all the job losses, bankruptcies, plant closures, and etc., to Granholm, and after every claim of disaster happening here, there is a completely bizarre tag line, "and Governor Granholm says, 'Stay the course.' " Things are pretty desperate for their group when the smear they consider the most effective for their side, is to try to connect you with--their President! I hope people will easily respond common-sensically, "...But that's YOUR side's line, DeVos you asshole."
