Tag: Betty Weaver
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
Conservative Republicans, at least those over 25 years old, may remember one of President George W. Bush's biggest political blunders. Her name was Harriet Miers.
If you are not yet old enough to run for Congress, well, draw near. I'll tell you about the tumultuous summer of 2005. And I'll tell you why that matters to Rule-of-Law Michigan Republicans in 2012.

8AM rules committee thing tomorrow.. Some are concerned it will be designed to favor particular candidates. Hopefully on the up and up. Chairing it will be Jason Allen. Fair play gentlemen, is key to restoring trust within the party. You cannot afford to blow this opportunity, and you may.
Betty Weaver is on the Bus.. What I find to be a strange event, is the appearance of Elizabeth Weaver at our Traverse city Pick up Spot for the Glenn Beck Restoring Honor Rally Bus heading to DC. Had the pleasure of an hour long conversation between GR and Okemos, where she boarded the bus to head to the event. Apparently a big Beck fan.
Robo Calls suck.. No fewer than 20 Robo calls a day as a reward for becoming a precinct delegate. Bill Schuette, Michelle McManus and Mike Bishop topped the list. Question.. Do we have a THIRD alternative to the AG nod?
Non identified emails, and fake websites set up to encourage voting by delegates.. THEMICHIGANREPORT.COM is as fake as reporting blogs go. Anyone who cannot put their name or normally used moniker on their work is hardly worth paying attention to. FAIL.

She wasn't going to be nominated by the Republicans at the convention as in years past. She WAS going to legitimately compete as an independent.
And now.. Betty Weaver has given a solid middle finger to the Republican party which supported her past ascension to the Michigan Supreme court. Weaver, who had filed as an Independent has apparently decided to forgo the cost of the race, and give a payback to the Republican party of Michigan that said it wouldn't nominate her as a result of her frequently siding with the more liberal justices too often.. She is quitting the bench.
Liz Boyd, spokeswoman for Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm, said Weaver, 69, would formally tender her resignation later in the morning and appear with the governor at a news event at noon.
And she is giving the valuable title of "incumbent" to whomever Jennifer Granholm puts in her place. It is a gift to the Ds, a snub to the Rs, and a position that requires no confirmation from the legislature apparently.
