Tag: Michigan GOP
By JenKuznicki, Section News
Mitt Romney's literature and signs have been at every Republican event for years. He had quite an organization in 2008 with signs that said, "Michigan for Mitt," with the cute reference of the appearance of the lower peninsula being a mitten, and Mitt's name, well, it's just precious.
But here we are, 9 days from Michigan's Presidential Primary, which the GOP in Michigan moved up and lost half of it's delegates as a result, and now Mitt has to actually compete.
Mitt lost Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, South Carolina, and Minnesota, and may lose Maine. He has so far won New Hampshire and Florida.
So as I read what is happening downstate and about how wonderful Mitt is, I noticed how the press says Romney has not defended the auto bailout, and that it will hurt him. Michigan Republicans defend the auto-bailout because Michigan is the auto industry and it's too big to fail, etc.
But the auto rescue is an awkward issue in a state in which both Republicans and Democrats wholeheartedly supported it.
Then I typed, "Mitt Romney supported auto bailouts," into my little google search thingy and I found out that he flip-flopped on that issue too.

I don't pretend to know and understand the ins and outs of internal party races like the RNC chair race, but I do know this, it makes sense for former MIGOP chairman Saul Anuzis to become chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Saul has been the first to throw in for the race, and Steele is expected to announce his intentions this evening. Others who have formally announced according to Anuzis' blog are "former Bush Administration Official Maria Cino, RNC Legal Counsel & WI Chair Reince Priebus,"and," Ambassador Ann Wagner." Still, it is not clear if former Republican National Committee political director Gentry Collins is in yet, Collins left the RNC in a huff decrying Steele's ineptness at fundraising and his mismanagement of funds, nor is it clear if former RNC chair Mike Duncan is in. Regardless, the field is crowded, and may get more so.
Putting aside all the politicking, my purpose for encouraging endorsements for Saul Anuzis is from a purely grassroots level.
