    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    MRP Chairman Schostak Statement Regarding Senator Rick Santorum's Decision to Suspend His Campaign

    LANSING, MICH., April 10, 2012 - Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak issued the following statement, regarding Senator Rick Santorum's decision to suspend his campaign for president:

    "The Michigan Republican Party applauds Rick Santorum for running a strong race, here in Michigan and nationally. Our focus remains on defeating President Obama and his reckless policies of more debt, more spending and higher unemployment. Obama's failed policies have resulted in Michigan being extremely competitive, as evident by the most recent poll which has Obama leading the closest Republican rival by the margin of error. Michigan's Republican-led turnaround demonstrates the powerful effects of pro-worker, pro-job creator, and common sense policies. We look forward to contrasting Michigan's Republican-led turnaround with President Obama's horrendous record."

    In other news, other high level MiGOP officials breathed a 'seppuku free' sigh of relief today, and put away their tantō blades.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Saul Really? On A Sunday? - Day 11

    The Michigan GOP credentials committee met last night and shuffled the hours so that we would lose one today.

    They just don't know when to stop.

    Saul has his weekly "musings" propaganda letter out, and of course he feels the need to include further repudiation of the truth.  First he makes the point he is a family man with mouths to feed so we feel sorry for him if/when he gets his corrupt rear tossed from the party mechanism, then he goes into the Romney inevitability meme. THEN states the obvious and points out how dangerous Obama is, so we rally together with him, and finally drops the straw man "Operation hilarity" bomb:

    From Democrat/Liberal Activist Joe DiSano "Operation: Hilarity."

    The do-gooders and progressive purists will wring their hands at those among us who helped Rick Santorum win 7 of Michigan's 14 Congressional Districts. They will tell you our efforts were misguided and unproductive. Some will even say our efforts were unethical and an example of dirty politics. They may be right on that last point.

    Our efforts may have been dirty and unethical. I don't think so, but I suppose honest people can debate that. What is undeniable is the effectiveness of the efforts of progressives and Democrats to help deliver delegates to Santorum.

    Through our campaign of 80,000 robo-calls, 200,000 emails, several radio and TV appearances and countless print mentions leading up to primary day, a list of just under 14,000 Democrats pledged their support to Rick Santorum in the GOP primary.

    Look to the results in Michigan's sprawling 1st U.S. Congressional District. Santorum won the district by less than 1 percent or 790 votes. Our list of Democrats in the 1st U.S. Congressional District had 800 voters agreeing to support Santorum. Look at the 13th U.S. Congressional District, where Santorum won by a margin with 1,535 votes. Our robo-call program alone identified just fewer than 1,300 Democrats willing to hold their nose and vote for Santorum in the Wayne County-based 13th CD. That doesn't include people activated by our email blasts or media appearances.

    At the least, our efforts in Michigan moved the delegates from the 1st, 7th and 13th U.S. Congressional Districts to Santorum's column. We denied Romney the clean sweep he'd expected.


    The Dems I know voted both ways.  And as I pointed out previously, the Snyder win by actively pursuing Democrats and independents in the 2010 Republican gubernatorial primary only got a "stfu," and "you don't know what you are talking about." and "It didn't happen.", by the same folks who now cry foul. And frankly, most of the presumed crossover Dems FEAR Santorum far more than Romney on two levels; Ability to beat Obama, and Governance.  

    They won't take that chance. No Freaking Way. More below ~

    Oh Yeah - THOSE Rules - Day 10 Dele-GATE

    We have yet to see the minutes of the alleged meeting February 4th, where the rules were 'adjusted' for a winner take all of at large delegates.  

    In fact, there is really no proof the meeting ever took place.  The folks who occupy the credentials committee have had ample opportunity to PROVE their intent was not to subvert the rules for the gain of their guy, but are slow in even coming up with made up documentation.

    Kinda sucks when not everyone is on board huh Saul? Bobby?

    It also doesn't help when EVERYTHING points towards the rules being CHANGED February 29th. (After the contest was over)

    Like the RNC Memo from way back in 2011. Below the fold

    Super Trickster Day

    Out of the 10 states involved in the "Super Tuesday" part of our election, how many will have questionable results, delayed counts, and angry grass roots?

    Am guessing about 4-5.  But that is just a guess.  And lets take the guess a little further with a favoring Mitt Romney on Super Tuesday theme.  Certainly it would follow, as the Iowa, Viginia, Maine, and Florida races demonstrate, team Romney has a bag of tricks, like we have never seen.  And by golly this list would be incomplete without adding Michigan to the mix.

    Funny thing about election fraud in the 21st century, as the internet makes it a little harder to escape the truth.

    Mitt Romney Urged Obama to Embrace the Individual Mandate

    Had Michigan not been as close, the Democrats would have waited to spring this on us in the general election. Luckily we have it now and I hope Ohio voters are paying attention.

    In July 2009, Mitt Romney wrote an op-ed in USA Today urging Barack Obama to use an individual mandate at the national level to control healthcare costs.

    On the campaign trail now, Mitt Romney says the individual mandate is appropriate for Massachusetts, but not the nation. Repeatedly in debates, Romney has said he opposes a national individual mandate.

    Rest here

    And the MI-GOP Leadership threw away their credibility over him?  Losers.

    An Open Letter to Michigan Republicans

    Dear Michigan Republicans:

    Stop it.  All of it.  Just stop.

    It is truly amazing how we pay lip service to unity, then immediately turn around and try to tear each other apart.  This gives aid and comfort to the enemy, and it stokes the mistrust that so characterizes our current political process.

    The negative campaigning, the dirty tricks, the middle-of-the-night meetings that rewrite the rule book - does it matter?  In the long run (meaning about six months from now), will any of this matter?

    Not Too Bad

    No sullen silence here.

    The "operation chaos" by the Democrats may have tossed a few votes toward Santorum, but I suspect there were an equal amount thrown at Romney by the Dems simply as the sudden fear that Santorum might actually take the nomination set in.

    Net result? Nothing.

    The REAL story here is one of an incredible amount of money thrown in a single state to smother yet another contender who threatens the coronation of an elite favorite.  The story of a Three point statewide win belies the reality told by a 40-50 percent absentee count.  A vote that for the most part happened prior to Colorado. In Grand Traverse County alone, some precincts had more absentee ballots cast than those on election day.

    In my own TWP precinct 1, 159 votes were cast today.  189 votes were cast by AVB.  Votes today? Santorum 52, Mittens 64, others make up remainder. AVB? 35 and 61 respectively, a far different polling percentage wise.

    precinct 3 makes the difference stand out more. Today Count Santorum 111, Mitt 88.  Absentee? 41 and 57.  A complete turnaround. Most of the other township precincts in Grand Traverse county have similar turnarounds.
