Michigan House GOP rushes omnibus package of anti-abortion bills through – “most extreme legislation in the country” (updated)

Everything old and evil is new again in Michigan In a dramatic display of raw power, Michigan House Republicans pivoted from their anti-union, pro-corporate efforts to rush through a package of bills limiting women’s access to abortion services in what is being called “the most extreme legislation…anywhere in the country”. A hearing held by the Health Policy House Committee was […]

Michigan Rising’s effort to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder ends

The good fight was fought After the devastating result on Tuesday to recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, Michigan Rising, the group who organized two efforts to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, has decided to end its signature gathering.

Mitt Gives Up On Michigan

Mitt Gives Up On Michigan

What’s the opposite of a victory lap? Why would Mitt Romney think he has any chance of winning Michigan? It’s hard to remember this now, but Mitt Romney only won the Michigan GOP primary by a margin of 3%. Rick Santorum basically gave Mitt the Michigan primary and the nomination by saying JFK made him “want to puke.” Mitt, the […]

The Romney Etch-a-Sketching continues, now he’s revising his position on saving the auto industry

Shake, shake, shake… In his ongoing effort to obliterate his past and recreate a new vision of himself, Mitt Romney has again revised history. This time, it’s HIS story, the one where he used to say “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt”.

Romney stands to lose $5 million a year if Barack Obama is reelected (UPDATED)

Romney stands to lose $5 million a year if Barack Obama is reelected (UPDATED)

Ahhh…so THAT’S why he wants to be the president…

It’s no secret that Mitt Romney’s run for the presidency is heavily financed and supported by the 0.1%. They stand to gain a great deal if he is elected. But a recent analysis by two groups, Citizens for Tax Justice (a liberalish group) and Tax Foundation (a conservatish group) suggest that maybe there’s as much in it for Mitt Romney as there is for his wealthy pals.

The Hypocrisy is Breathtaking, Even for Romney

The Hypocrisy is Breathtaking, Even for Romney

Mitt can hide, but he can’t run Mitt Romney has finally found something to improve his record-low approval ratings: hiding. 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 […]

Thad McCotter retires leaving the field open to a tea party libertarian, Kerry Bentivolio

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.

Steve Pestka Facebook page sheds hundreds of “Likes” after allegations that he bought them

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 […]

The Time to Get Outraged is Now

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 […]
