Jennifer Granholm brings down the house with her “Michigan Convention Ode”, a poem about Donald Trump
This morning at the Michigan DNC delegation breakfast, former Governor (and my personal friend and hero) Jennifer Granholm read a poem she wrote about Donald Trump. She had the entire room in stitches so I asked her if I could share it with our readers and she kindly agreed. Enjoy! Michigan Convention Ode — a little fun at the Michigan […]Read more ›
Michigan Radio’s Lester Graham has a great piece out this week titled, “More and better jobs?” that takes a balanced look at Rick Snyder’s claims about the rebounding of Michigan’s and his role in it.

Plain talk about a brazen liar
Jennifer Granholm has been positively on fire lately.
I am SO loving this takedown of Paul Ryan and his RNC speech:
“We will not duck the tough issues, we will lead,” Ryan promised last night. He mentioned leading and leadership eight times in his speech. But he’d better bone up on what leadership is all about. More than anything, “leadership” is about honesty.
The No. 1 quality people look for in leaders, James Kouzes and Barry Posner state in their iconic book, “The Leadership Challenge,” in which they cite more than 40 years of extensive surveys across six continents, is honesty. People want to trust that their leaders will do what they say they will do. Of course we want to believe we will not be duped. Of course we want to be led honestly.
I couldn’t help thinking lastnight, we have been sold a bill of goods by a slick-haired, earnest-looking, fast-talking salesman. Harold Hill, move over. Apologies to Meredith Wilson of “The Music Man” fame, but if these guys win — we surely got trouble, my friends. Trouble with a capital “T” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for “Paul.”

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”. In an interview published today in the Detroit News, Romney now says the federal government should have helped the domestic […]Read more ›

From former Governor Jennifer Granholm’s new show The War Room on Current TV. This is good stuff. Very good stuff.

Rick Snyder takes credit for Jennifer Granholm’s investments and their economic payoff, says he isn’t
During her time as governor, Jennifer Granholm made significant investments in diversifying and expanding Michigan’s economy.
