Anyone here from Michigan? what you think about this?

Democrats cheered on Wednesday when news broke that John McCain's campaign was abandoning Michigan, pulling down its ads and sending staffers to other states.

Almost immediately, an organization called Progress Michigan let loose with a taunt, demanding that McCain keep pouring resources into the state in order to explain to voters his "support for outsourcing" and the "failed economic policies" of the Bush administration.

Many speculated that McCain would now turn his focus to Pennsylvania. But United Steelworkers International president Leo Gerard tells the Huffington Post that the state could soon go the way of Michigan.

  • The largest city in Michigan is Detroit. Detroit is 100% Democrat, not to mention 90% African-American, and will vote for Obama almost 100%, so why should McCain even waste time, energy and resources campaigning in Michigan?

  • The first answer wasn't racist--it was stating FACTS. Ugh I hate how "racist' is just thrown around!

    If they want to keep voting Democrat in Michigan that's fine but their idiot Democrat governor who keeps raising taxes and running businesses out of that state should teach them a lesson. Let them have their high unemployment levels--idiots!
