Most of Associated Press coverage of Obama visit to Michigan was about a few dozen tea partiers

Liberal media, my ass

As I have already written about, yesterday President Obama visited Michigan for a couple of fundraising events. The Associated Press, of course covered the event. How they covered it blew my mind.

PHOTO: President Obama sits on the bus Rosa Parks made history in

Goosebumps

One of the really cool things that they have at the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Michigan, is the bus on which Rosa Parks took her famous stand. Or sit, rather. Yesterday, President Barack Obama, another African American to break down barriers and make history, sat on that same bus and was photographed by White House photographer Pete Souza.

Ted Nugent: American Traitor, Misogynist & Romney surrogate

Romney surrogate Ted Nugent hates America

I’ve written about Ted Nugent before (“Ted Nugent: This is what happens when an idiot-clown gets the megaphone“) partly because he’s from Michigan and used to live near my hometown of Jackson.

Ted Nugent is an American traitor.

This week at the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention, Nugent said “our government is wiping its ass with the Constitution”, that four Supreme Court justices “don’t believe in the Constitution”, called our government “vile, evil, [and] America-hating “, and said President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are all “criminals”.…

Obama in Dearborn, Michigan – 4/18/2012 – Photos, video, and transcript

Fired up and ready to go in Michigan!

Here are some photos and video from yesterday's Obama campaign stop at the beautiful Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Michigan. I don't have much to say other than it was a spectacular venue, an energized president, and an even more energized crowd. As you look at the video and images, notice how diverse the crowd is. It's one of the hallmark's of President Obama's supporters, in my opinion. All photos by Anne C. Savage, used with permission. You can view more of her photos from the event HERE.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker “welcomed” to Michigan by nearly 2,000 protesters

You ain’t from around here is you, boy?

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker had quite a day yesterday. First, he was greeted by upwards of 2,000 protesters at an speech for the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. Then, when he got to Michigan, he was greeted by a crowd estimated to be anywhere from 1,300 to nearly 3,000.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was greeted in Michigan by nearly 2,000 union protesters chanting for his recall, but inside the San Marino Club the embattled governor received a standing ovation from GOP faithful cheering his reforms.

The Republican governor is trying to hold onto his job in the aftermath of his successful efforts to curb collective bargaining rights for public employees in Wisconsin.

Republicans come to the rescue of the military but food stamp recipients will have to pay the price

Won’t someone think of the bombers? Nevermind. Someone did.

When the deficit cutting committee failed to reach agreement last year, it set in motion a series of automatic budget cuts which included some military cuts. This, of course, is an anathema to the Republicans so they have been scrambling like crazy to find a way to trim the budget to avoid cuts to military spending.

They have prevailed. They will be cutting benefits to food stamp recipients.

This is based on the belief, recently spelled out by Paul Ryan, that things like food stamps “transform our social safety net into a hammock, which lulls able-bodied people into lives of complacency and dependency.”

[C]onservatives are alarmed that the level of income-related government benefits continues to rise.…
