    True Republicans Don't Cheat.

    True conservative Republicans don't cheat.

    They don't need to.

    When Rep Roy Schmidt -D became Rep Roy Schmidt -R, it didn't change who he was.  Like painting a blue Ford Pinto red, it hardly makes it a Lincoln Towncar. The taint that is now apparently giving fuel to the most leftist Democrats for the upcoming elections truly drives home the fact that where THEY come from nowadays, is really a degenerate pool of deceit and sleight of hand.  By embracing the left into the Republican party, the infection is immediately seen for what it is.

    True principles do not allow deception to become a part of their playbook.  Open, honest, and upfront dealings, along with explanation of consequence are the only way in which political matters should be handled.  Sadly, there are still those who are willing to accept a second rate toss off from a second rate political ideology that has no conscience.

    Remember who hid the source of funding and authorship until a Mackinac center intern discovery, of the RMGN document.  The admission as displayed in the discovery, was they (the Dems) were worried about their reelection chance in 2010, so a small cheat was needed.  The cheat as was revealed was the nearly complete re-write of our Michigan constitution.  They won't talk about that along side new complaints about the Republicans will they?

    And then recall the big cheat, where not only was a vote draining scheme concocted, it involved straight up fraud and document forgery.  Hell some of the candidates not only lived outside the district, but didn't even know they were running!  But the Dems won't do anything but briefly complain that because they were busted then, the republicans should face the same fate now.  And never mind the fact that in their effort 9 felony counts were placed on the culprits in contrast to ZERO for this recent event.

    And now, the lefty Dems are crying foul for a "Republican" scheme to win a particular seat once occupied by the same man who wants to occupy it as a republican?

    Yeah.  I can relate.

    Republicans need to give him back. He isn't natural here.  It isn't what we are about. That's THEIR gig, and they are upset our leadership got excited about picking up the seat.  No excuses.  Wrong is wrong, and people are about sick of the games played simply so some can hold on to their political jobs.  Schmidt is a Democrat, played a lefty game, and became the baby ruth in our pool.

    Get the net.

    I like the car analogy above, so naturally it seems that republicans should talk about a jettison of a poor marketing decision and pathetic platform, not run cover for it.

    Bolger got into trouble by conspiring with Schmidt to recruit a non-Democrat to run against him after the latter switched parties just before the May filing deadline.

    Schmidt, according to an investigation by Kent County's Republican prosecutor Bill Forsyth, [Schmidt] offered to pay one of his son's friends $1,000 to run as his Democratic opponent.

    It was the equivalent of asking a boxer to take a dive -- but not illegal under Michigan law, according to the prosecutor.

    Bolger said on my WJR radio show that he had no knowledge of the payment offer and there is no evidence to contradict his statement.

    Speaker Bolger is truly an amazing man.  He has to be the first individual that I've heard of that can actually walk through a septic tank and not get anything on him.  Didn't know how The Left acts?  C'mon Jase, you didn't just fall out of bed one morning into that Speaker position of yours.

    In other words, he's about the last politician you'd expect to take a page out of the Richard Nixon playbook of dirty tricks.

    And yet, inexplicably, that's what he did in this case in the name of political expediency.

    It's important to repeat that Bolger's involvement in the Schmidt race was not illegal, a not-insignificant distinction.

    His actions, no matter how Machiavellian, don't qualify for more serious rebuke than his own embarrassment, and Bolger told me he feels plenty of that -- not over being caught, but over agreeing to become involved.

    Bolger is right to reject calls for his resignation as Speaker [Stop]

    Sure, Frank.  But, the Edsel was still an Edsel, and the plug was pulled on it 'cause like Speaker Bolger, nobody bought the Edsel, either.

    We aren't talking about being Christ-like here, it's just plain common sense.  Jase made himself a marked man for his embracing The Left.  So has Bobby Schostak.

    Being a Conservative has little to do with much anything that is Party affiliated in Michigan.
