Maybe you'd be better off just shutting up, MittMitt Romney responded today to the well-researched Washington Post article that described how Bain Capital was an investor/owner of companies that were "pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States...overseas". I'm not sure that it helped.
Anti-Democracy group asks Republican Sec. of State to throw out Protect Our Jobs citizens’ referendum
When you don't have the votes, you cheatAn anti-democracy group ironically called Citizens Protecting Michigan's Constitution is asking Republican Secretary of State Ruth Johnson to throw away the petitions containing nearly 700,000 signatures to keep the Protect Our Jobs referendum off the November ballot, saying: "We believe that you have a clear legal duty to reject the filed petition and to refuse to further process it, canvass the signatures or to refer the petition to the Board of State Canvassers for certification to the ballot."
Right-leaning Livingston County Press op-ed hammers judges for Emergency Manager law repeal petition decision
When you've lost the conservative press, you've lostThe Livingston County Press & Argus editorial page is not known for being part of the so-called "Liberal Media". Quite the opposite, in fact. So, their recent Op-Ed "Politics trumps law for GOP judges" is significant. Very significant.
Romney’s Bain Capital owned overseas outsourcing specialists that helped companies export jobs for profit

Every white town countsMitt Romney finished up his recent 5-day bus tour in Michigan this week with stops in Frankenmuth, Dewitt and Holland. For those of you who aren't from Michigan, you're forgiven if you've never heard of those places. The tour is called the "Every Town Counts" tour and had stops in 13 towns. The Nation magazine calls it the "Some Towns Just Don't Count" tour and CBS calls it the "Every (Wealthy) Town Counts" tour. Romney was met by a monstrous crowd of a about 400 mostly white, mostly male supporters. He was also met by a significant number of protesters, including MoveOn.org's "No Millionaire Left Behind Romney Mobile". Photos and video after the jump.
Drunk with powerMichigan male Republican legislators seem to have no filter when it comes to dealing with opposition. If they think it, they say it. And tweet it.
