    Upton Should Call On Sarah Palin

    Fred Upton got the post he wanted in the House, as Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.  Boehner gave him the job over massive objections from conservatives.  Perhaps if Upton cries, he will convince some of them that he's going to be a real stalwart.

    JGillman of RightMichigan voices the concern that so many are thinking.  Now that Upton got the post over all the objections, will he do what needs doing?

    Judging from some of  his responses to criticism, I'd say that's a definite no.

    He said he was going to Washington to repeal that healthcare law, then he agreed to support the insertion of Pitt's Protect Life Act, and Smith's No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act into the law.  That's called nibbling around the edges.  The way the genius Republican leadership has been going, if the acts do end up being inserted, they will become known as the Stupak amendment for criminy's sake.   Why in the world would you say you were going to repeal it, but first change it a little to make it better, then repeal it?  Does that make sense?

    Not only that, but Upton's record on abortion is abysmal, so this move is actually a sop to the conservatives, because Upton is a liberal, not a conservative.

    So, forgive me if I have no faith in him.  The problem is, his very state is at the center of one of the largest battles for survival it has ever seen.  He needs boot camp, and he needs it fast.

    If everyone is feeling calmed by the Republicans taking over Michigan, let me jar you.  There are far too many of those Republicans that buy into the Climate Change/Global Warming hoax, and thanks to their bipartisan efforts, Granholm has pinned the state down to the most destructive energy paths we have ever seen, and we don't have the money to comply with it.  

    What are we doing here?

    Fred, pal, listen.  I don't believe you have it in you to be tough on the EPA after your family's company Whirlpool got such a tidy sum helping us all green the planet.  I don't believe you are strong enough to fight the Sierra Club, and the Environmental Law people and on and on.  You are not a real "get your hands dirty" kind of guy, and your tough talk isn't fooling anybody.  But if you really want to save your career, your state and your country, you'll find the strength.

    Do you know what you should do?  Talk to Sarah Palin.  Palin knows a lot about energy, it is one of her signature issues.  Oh, and I was just joking about crying earlier, don't cry.  Sarah wouldn't cry.

    Well written again, jenkuz.  There's no way Fred is gonna do diddly squat in his seniority claimed position.  You can bet Uptons' $8,070,000.00 Whirlpool trust fund along with Uptons' holdings $19,000,000.00 in "Porkulus" Smart Grid monies and his stolen 22 acres of $120,000,000.00 tax dollar enhanced waterfront property on that.  It's Uptons' Conerstone dealings that is blatantly obvious.  See?  Poof! PFM!


    "If everyone is feeling calmed by the Republicans taking over Michigan, le..." [Stop]

    Whoa that right there.  Everyone I talk with is far from anything considered calm.  Maybe political class centrist asshats like adulterer Gingrich or Romneycare Mitt, both spuriously reinterpreting their legacy within the GOP for a 2012 campaign are calm, but none of us peon voters that I know of are experiencing any tranquility.  

    Nope.  We're still p!ssed at Silver Spoon RINO Upton.

    ...the establishment's blinders on this one.

    I've got a friend who is trying to get me to rally behind Huckabee in '12.

    Doing some digging, I came across this little ditty a while back:

    It's got one of those Michael Moore edits at the 0:45 mark, so I'm not ready to unload on him just yet, but the statement is still pretty damning, nonetheless.
