  • Does anyone really think if McCain had been elected we'd all be working, making millions of dollars, peeing rainbows??

    No, but we'd be well over a trillion dollars LESS in debt.

  • DeeMarie87, you can't blame Obama for everything that's wrong in Detroit even though Detroit voted for him (and I'm NOT an Obama supporter). Michigan has been going downhill for years before Obama got into office, thanks to our governor that bragged she'd blow 'em away.....she succeeded, didn't she!? She's the one that let the manufacturing jobs go instead of working to keep them. She's the one that's made budget cut after budget cut -- to schools and law enforcement most of all. Detroit's had its own problems going on before Obama got into office. Everything's worked together to bring Detroit's manufacturing base down and Michigan, too.

  • A lot of what you pin on Obama is actually caused by our like minded gov. Socialist Granholm.

  • It will end when Obama is gone and your state chooses a Republican governor.

  • Np - if you're struggling to feed your family and keep afloat the national debt is nowhere on your radar screen. Think simple.

    That doesn't absolve Obama of anything. What's going on in Michigan is exacerbated by Obama's policies, and yes, it is in large part due to Jennifer the Amazing Walking Idiot. She went overseas with our governor on a joint trip to woo companies to build facilities in either Indiana or Michigan. While Daniels was meeting with people and making deals, she was sight seeing and getting spa treatments. Guess where those factories were built - it doesn't start with an M.

    The real kicker is Obama exploited people, here, in Michigan and in Ohio. We still have an ad that runs on tv every day where Obama is talking about how sad it is in our town and how he's going to fix it - the ad is to get people to donate to our local food pantries because they haven't met demand since he was elected.
