See some amazing gardens, benefit Growing Hope – it’s a twofer!

Mitt can hide, but he can’t run
By focusing on schmoozing with donors and keeping his “Let me explain why your layoff/foreclosure is good for the economy” tone and smirk off of television, he’s brought his approval rating to 48 percent. That’s still well below the President who has a 56 percent approval rating and most Kardashians.
Hiding has become Romney’s favorite campaign tactic. He’s hiding his tax returns, the departments he’ll cut and what he’ll do in Afghanistan. He won’t tell us what tax deductions he’ll eliminate as he proposes cutting his own tax bill in half.…
This isn't any better...There's a lot of laughing and giggling and guffawing bout the utter failure of Congressman Thad McCotter. Since it was discovered that almost 90% of the signatures he turned in to get on the August primary ballot were invalid, he has now dropped out of the race and won't be running a write-in campaign. Unfortunately, the guy who did make the ballot is as bad or worse than McCotter.
Run away! Run away!
My piece last week titled “Is Democrat Steve Pestka buying Facebook “Likes” for his MI-03 campaign page?” ended up making a pretty big splash. It got picked up by Mario Aguilar at Gizmodo and then John Aravosis at AMERICAblog.
Both pieces took Pestka to task for what seems to clearly be a purchase of Facebook likes in order to make it look like the candidate is wildly popular on the internet. Except in his case, Steve Pestka is oddly very popular with 13-17 year old kids from Israel and the Philippines.
Subsequent to the story, the Pestka Facebook page started shedding “likes”.…
I’m tellin’ y’all, it’s a sabotage
Last Friday, the Labor Department announced that the US economy had created 69,000 jobs in May. That’s 58,000 more jobs than George W. Bush’s monthly average of creating 11,000 jobs a month, according to economist Justin Wolfers who claims he did something called “math.”
But the GOP reacted as if President had just taken Clinton’s booming economy and surplus and turned into a steaming mess of debt and joblessness in one month.
Mitt Romney went on CNBC—his first non-Fox News interview in months—and danced on the faces of the unemployed. His one idea to improve the economy?…
We have the smartest readers in the blogosphereOn Thursday night this past week, we had our Beer With Bloggers event at the Corner Brewery in Ypsilanti. We had a great turnout of around 75 people and the conversations were fascinating. The event was originally started by one of Michigan's finest bloggers, Mark Maynard from MarkMaynard.com.

Republicans have been getting their news from clowns for years
As @LOLGOP, I try to use GOP tactics to mock the GOP and GOP tactics. Basically I’m an enraged, ranting megalomaniac—at least on Twitter.
Over 60,000 fine Twitter users follow LOLGOP. That’s more than follow the corporate sponsors of the tea party movement @FreedomWorks and four-times more than a likely VP nominee, former Bush Administration spokesmodel @RobPortman.
I have thank the GOP—Mitt, Santorum, Newt, Trump, Rick Perry, Bachmann and Palin, especially. Their seriously scary policies and personalities are so easy to LOL at.
But we cannot stop now.…
