A $1,000 to Slow-Joe for president in ’07, and now calls it “a tracker“? Good one. I suppose that, Bobby Schostak can now make the same claim about his $666 to Nancy Pelosi in ’07, and the Thousand$ to Jennifer Granholm, too. I also suppose there are some dupes out there that are actually gullible enough to buy that crap they’re being fed.
All due respect to Sen. Cruz, please go take a hot shower and be sure to use plenty of soap.
See, this is exactly the problem with all this ingrained, union-type mentality that exists within the Party apparatchik. The best and brightest to the front of the line? Nope. The Party power brokers stand fast with playing the tired old seniority, and pay your dues game (nothing directed at you Dan, but you just happen to state the obvious). What serves to exacerbate this problem? Every damn time an out-of-stater comes to town, and lends credence to those who they may or may not be completely aware of who they really are lending their good name to for some $peaking engagement *wink-wink-nudge-nudge, Johnny*.
Here is the part that needs to be taken seriously.
Ellis said Amash’s vote explanations don’t get him off the hook for what he’s done in Congress.
“He’s got an explanation for everything, but that doesn’t mean it’s right,” Ellis said.
Do remember what Brian Ellis just stated.
Political attacks in the race have not been a one-way street.
Amash has admonished Ellis for voicing support for Gov. Rick Snyder’s addition of more than 300,000 low-income adults to the Medicaid health insurance program. The expansion is being paid for by Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
“He supports Obamacare,” Amash said. “Medicaid expansion is a major part of Obamacare. … If you don’t support Obamacare, you shouldn’t support Medicaid expansion.”
Amen, Justin! Spot-on assessment. So, why this, and this? Your *pal* Lt. Governerd Brian Puss-cake cast the vote for Medicaid expansion. C’mon kid, yes you are a kid in my book, Justin – never do any favors for enemies.
OK, now here it comes…
Ellis said he supports repeal of the health insurance law, but understands the reasoning of Snyder and the Republican state legislators when they agreed to accept billions in federal aid for expanding the program.
“I thought it was a very tough call and I have faith in our elected leaders,” Ellis said. “They tried to do the best they could.”
And, there you go CD-3. “He’s got an explanation for everything, but that doesn’t mean it’s right”. Brian Ellis can’t even get out of his own way without being crushed by his own cognitive dissonance.
What to expect? Expect to eat Brian’s words if dumb enough to send him to Weeper Boehner’s D.C. Also, expect to keep eating Brian’s words until y’all in CD-3 can gather up the coin to outspend his nasty Democrat-lite pandering ass if actually dumb enough to send him there instead of Amash. Ellis has career incumbent written all over him, and the DC-GOP long-knives will make damn sure Ellis has a cash warchest to protect the big spending “Get your ass in line” status quo.
Ps. for those old enough to recognize the origins to the title of this post, hit the button.
Gov. Rick Snyder and former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson Jr. teamed up Monday to emphasize why Michigan should continue to forge closer economic ties to China, in a panel discussion hosted by the Detroit Economic Club.
China is one of the United States’ biggest trading partners, but both men emphasized that its economy will soon change from one of cheap labor, exports and government investment to one where a growing middle-class shifts to a consumption economy, leaving China with money to invest overseas. Snyder has made direct foreign investment in Michigan one of his priorities for building the state economy.
“Globalization is only going to continue,” Snyder said. “Historically, China was an exporter but they’re looking at consumption now.”
For that matter, who is it that said that if it weren’t for their business with the gender selective baby aborting Chicoms, “If we hadn’t reached out we’d be one-tenth of the size we are today”? If you answered The Wooden Shoe Mafia, you were correct. Thus enters, Doug DeVos. Naturally, that means those Canadians need a make-work union labor *project* that connects their Port in Halifax, so the Chicoms can import what they manufacture to America, and receive their food supplies and other natural resources like coal (do you like this article, Boobus Americanus?), which is for the most part paying the interest on our .FEDGOV borrowing.
“Bottom line, I strongly endorse Brian Ellis because he will be an effective conservative voice and a consistent conservative vote for solutions that will help hardworking Michigan taxpayers,” Hokestra said. “Brian Ellis will not just talk conservative, but he will vote conservative.”
Likewise, Hoekstra said his win was a referendum on Washington and Vander Jagt, who was criticized for taking lavish trips on behalf of special interests while managing the Republican National Congressional Committee that funneled campaign cash to GOP candidates.
“A lot of people thought Guy had gone “DC” on them,” said Hoekstra, adding that both Cantor and Vander Jagt “became the face of Washington rather than the face of their district.”
A Holland woman who was a Washington, D.C., aide to former U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra is running for state House in the 90th District.
The seat is currently held by state Rep. Joe Haveman, R-Holland, who cannot seek re-election due to term limits.
Garcia said. “With term limits, we can’t afford to have somebody learn the ropes (before they get to work).”
Daniela Garcia planned to announce her candidacy for the Republican nomination Friday, Feb. 7, at Alpenrose Park, 4 E. 8th St. in Holland, with Hoekstra in attendance. She joins a field that has five other candidates.
She is the daughter of former Holland schools superintendent Frank Garcia [collected pension age 54].
Garica worked with U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers and during Hoekstra’s last two years in Congress [snip]
Is anything above really something to boast about? Let’s refresh our memories on Pete Hoekstra.
Folks, you have an opportunity for better in the 90th District, and his name is David Kroll.
