I want Dave Camp to enter the US Senate race.
And there is no question about it. The MIGOP critters want Dave Camp to enter the US Senate race. In fact they are even 'beastly' about it:
"Camp is now seriously considering jumping into the race at the behest of power-brokers back home, according to sources familiar with the congressman's thinking. A small but influential group of Michigan GOP leaders has cranked up the heat on Camp, making the case that he could appeal to independents statewide and win the seat. Camp, they say, has been increasingly receptive to their appeals.By golly we agree.
Yes, I want Dave Camp to run for US Senate.
Continued below the fold. ~

Its me .. Dave, .. I got the stuff ..
"The stuff", being empty discourse and meaningless indignation at the IRS targeting the tea party. From behind the door, the five term congressman and chair of the Ways and Means committee is trying to get in. He should know the door remains closed, and any voter with a remaining functional synapse will be ignoring the pounding for attention. Camp's office responded to an Examiner article that described continuing IRS abuse of power with
"Congress may be out of session but we're continuing to keep the heat on the Internal Revenue Service. I wanted to make sure you saw the Washington Examiner article below for the most recent update. It is outrageous that IRS management continues to target Tea Party cases without any justification. "Ahem. .. IT'S OUTRAGEOUS!
Yeah get the ol tea folk worked up so you can abandon them again. Go to another dozen 912, Tea, patriot type meetings and tell them some more stories of how you will solve the current set of problems, and if necessary DEFUND the departments causing them:
" You didn't challenge the health care bill's constitutionality in 2010 when it was being debated did you Dave Camp? How about you Fred Upton? No. I guess not. And even after PLEDGING to affirm constitutionality for each bill passed in the house, it only took 7 months to lose that pledge in the bottom of the briefcase.Not forgetting those promises Dave. Going below the fold for more.

The groveling for permission from their federal masters continues as the Ways and Means chair says "pretty please" to one of Obama's cronies. From THE HILL:
Reps. Dave Camp and Fred Upton endorsed Michigan's request Thursday in a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Michigan asked HHS last week to phase in new requirements that govern how insurers can spend their money.
Remember a few days ago? You know, when you and 200+ other Repbublicans had a royal flush backed up with cards up the sleeves, and a gun under the table?
You DO REMEMBER, right?
You know, a couple days before you folded to a pair of Jacks, held by a guy with a blinky eye "tell", and an audience of investors who were counting on the congress to FINALLY HOLD THE LINE. Right? A few days before the market hit the skids in the worst way in two years.
And then the guy holding the jacks? He spent $240 Billion of his "winnings" in one day.
Oh yeah, that's right you guys have a memory problem. ~ More Below ~
