Certainly the credentials committees are ALWAYS straight up and honorable.
A predetermined candidate would have no problem with an integrity breakdown in Michigan politics. By golly OUR credentials committee would NEVER stoop to this miserable level of candidate manipulation, right? Right???
"This year, the Wisconsin GOP is on track for something like 2,000 delegates, which would be double the largest state convention. The majority of those are opposed to Tommy Thompson.

If one was to forget about February 29, life goes on for those who simply had to stonewall.
Some of those who pretend they deserve the leadership positions within the Michigan GOP probably wish the issue could be silently allowed to pass on. The campaign which had been affected most directly has already made a point that it takes such underhanded manipulation of the rules a little more seriously. Only a few days ago, the story began appearing in the regular media again. This time with a promise by Reince Priebus that it would be looked into:

We have demonstrated it already, with the rules, with statements by those voting FOR the change, (Schostak Feb 8) and with statements and memos by the honorable folks like Mike Cox, and Eric Doster. We have pointed out the glaring hypocrisy, underhanded subterfuge of the process, and the subsequent damage control efforts convincing decent folk to support such treachery within the grand old party in Michigan.

What to expect?
At a correspondents breakfast this morning, debate moderators Maria Bartiromo and John Harwood forecast that the debate would center primarily around jobs and the economy. The Michigan setting lends itself to that discussion, since the Enchanted Mitten is home to a reawakening automobile industry and a burgeoning renaissance of its own, courtesy of a Republican governor and Republican-controlled legislature.
Still, we won't escape more questions on the Herman Cain sexual harassment allegations. Should this be a topic during this precious time? Good question, but here's why I think these questions will get asked:

Japan's long history was one of tradition and honor. The legendary samurai were the symbols of the honor and majesty of this once mighty empire. The code of the samurai was symbolic of how the people aspired to live their lives. They were the warrior class, the knights of their land, and the epitome of what was good in their land. They lived lives of discipline, honor and service.
