From the guy whose company would go to the ends of the earth for its people to hire them for 10% the cost of Michigan workers, now does so as your elected Governerd. Also, as Republican Michigander notes, Mexico, too.

Carl Levin has a bridge to sell you over some swampland in Michigan.
In Mid-December, Senator Carl Levin posted a position piece supporting further battery technology spending by taxpayers in Michigan. He states:
In other words we have failed miserably in our efforts to date, and we should really double down.
"But now you're getting it. Reporters who visited the Michigan factory of the South Korean company LG Chem, which got $151 million in stimulus money to manufacture lithium-ion batteries, discovered workers sitting around playing Monopoly and poker. The employees said it wasn't their fault: "What do you do when there's no work?" "Sure why not follow THESE successes with additional money thrown around.
As far as going all-in with these schemes, one might better be served with the proverbial 'fool me once .." advice. Frankly, Senator Levin should take the advice given to Harry Reid by the weeper last night.
At least the recipient would be 'getting it' voluntarily.

I haven't had a lot to say about Saul Anuzis other than that which needed to be said about the "Dele-Gate" scam.
For that reason, and the NPV issue, I have decided I do not care much for Mr. Anuzis all that much. The NPV thing, I have known about and did not consider it too awful until realizing how close it is to screwing over our country, (ever-vigilant, check) and leaving the decision of who our commander in chief will be to NY, and California voters pretty much by themselves. The "Dele-Gate" thing was/is far worse in my view, and demonstrated the worst level of politics, and frankly makes the Mi GOP look simply corrupt going into the most important election of our lifetime.
"Just a few bad apples," as they say.
Yeah, we (this forum for the most part) supported Saul for the NRC top spot. And at the time for all we knew, we were right. He is a likeable guy, understands the use of technology better than most, and knows the players. After looking at Priebus and the NRC position on NPV, we should be thanking God for a solid denial of that goal.
Elections matter as they say. Even those inter party ones.
And the convention events beginning tomorrow are bringing out Saul's 'tech' talents. Perhaps even his true character? ~ Below the fold

If I am reading this correctly, we have an issue to deal with, and it may have started in Michigan.
Of course if all they want to do is pirate the NBC broadcast of 'Parks and Rec' then "so what?"
