Last week, I pointed out how the Michigan Republican Party had posted this insulting graphic on their Facebook page which quickly led to a particulary racist comment that has since been removed:
Gary Peters and Mark Schauer with the very dark and scary President Obama
At the time, despite the Michigan GOP’s claim otherwise, there were rumors that President Obama actually IS going to come to Michigan to stump for Gary Peters and Mark Schauer.
Turns out, the rumors were accurate. This is from a Detroit Free Press article titled “Obama to visit Michigan to stump for Peters, Schauer”:
President Barack Obama will visit metro Detroit in the final week of the campaign season to stump for Democratic candidates who clearly aren’t worried about being linked to a president some of his critics have suggested might be a liability on the campaign trail.
A White House official confirmed this morning that Obama will attend a rally for U.S. Senate nominee Gary Peters and gubernatorial nominee Mark Schauer somewhere in the Detroit area during the final week of the campaign.
So, there’s that.
Hilariously, the MIGOP’s Facebook post is still up as of this afternoon.
They aren’t a very swift group, are they? How do we ever lose to these maroons?
