Schuette campaign should engage now.
The winds of presumability are shifting however. A whisper campaign to undermine the defacto favorite is being successfully used by Calley, in conjunction with what appears to be a 5 to 1 advertising buy ratio.
The worst possible outcome of the August 7 primary contest would be a Calley win. With a Calley win, grassroots activists who were sickened by Governor Snyder’ liberal left policies of higher taxes, Medicaid expansion, inviting/embracing illegal/dangerous immigrants, and a feet first swim in the Detroit river bridge boondoggle will become disengaged faster than one could say ‘Tea Party.’
Even with a subtle Yob campaign of trying to convince some very active Colbeck supporters (think iceberg – More unseen than in public media) that a Calley Colbeck ticket could come about (if they would consider Calley), there are enough who won’t be fooled again.
Calley’s “I am a conservative” ads touting his leading the way to conservative reforms rings very hollow in light of a budget that is 11 Billion more than what it was 8 years ago, an Obamacare expansion that is already collapsing, and a (already rejected by voters) road tax that is geared to inflate automatically as our dollar shrinks. (think exponential tax increases) All of those things happened with Brian Calley’s support. Hell, it was Calley who authored the disaster that was the MBT under Granholm.
Wes Nakagiri understood this and tried to engage to correct the GOP left swerving course in 2014. The convention challenge enthusiasm was unfortunately short lived as the chair quickly regained floor control. Nakagiri was not selected, and some of those who voted Calley at the time now suggest they regret their decision. [PM: Am I right Ray??]
RightMichigan Readers were warned in 2010 about Calley’s left leaning ways.
We have since opined that perhaps Brian Calley is not paying attention to his special needs children as he should. Considering that parenting time is far more important than a government mandated new tax on insurers (read: rate payers) his wife never should have entered politics as well.
We’ve also pointed out that the unemployment rate claims by Michigan’s administration are misleading. All of the radio ads telling us that the comeback happened because of Snyder/Calley? Not so fast Einsteins
Brian Calley should be at the end of his political rope.
But for the expert handling by Strategic National, he would be. the droning advertisements telling us how wonderfully conservative the Boy Nerd is, will have effect, especially if it is not countered, and SOON by the Schuette machine.
Schuette, (or anyone) could start with the unemployment rate. It really hasn’t been so good a recovery until Trump Took Office.
Now the attacks are happening, and the Calley/Yob machine is spreading innuendo and allegations like a farmer spreads manure; wide and plentiful. And arguably, as 11th hour nonsense like this happens it stinks about the same. Of course should Rick Snyder talk about such concerns… now?
Anyhow, It takes about 10 seconds to have something notarized. If someone has an issue with a 10 second distraction from those important ‘official’ duties, then NEVER EVER send a united way person to that environment to tie up the staff for an hour, or frankly don’t bother with pleasantries when calling an agency of the government, as Its just a time waste.
Some fights? Not worth having.
Soon we will learn the campaign expenditures of our would be electables. Supposedly, Bill Schuette has the better financial resources for handling such a big campaign.
If he is planning to use those resources exclusively for the general, he might as well offer the donors a refund.
