Mark Levin linked to a story in the Atlantic about what former Governor of Michigan, Jennifer Granholm, reads on a daily basis. She cited a number of progressive and liberal columnists, as well as liberal journalists and news outlets. But, she also had to tell all of us how she hates Rush and Mark Levin.
"If I had to name people I don't like, I'd say Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin. It's that breed of real toxic-spewers who are really damaging to our discourse. I'd be embarrassed to have my mom or dad listen to them. I don't think they shouldn't be on the radio but when the rhetoric inflames and exaggerates to the point of lacking integrity, that bothers me."
Mark Levin reacted,
Aw Jennifer, the feeling is mutual...
I live in Michigan, and can talk for hours about how exactly Jennifer Granholm screwed over this beautiful State for many years to come. And, of course it is because of her leftist ideology that she obviously practices on a daily basis. The easiest way I can think of to persuade the reader that her ideology is the problem is simply to take what she said and translate it. Hey, we lived with her for eight years, Michiganders know her.

OK, yeah.. a little disappointed in the statements made by our governor the other day. In my view, his particular expression of democrat dreams only gives those failed ideas new life. thus we call out RINO etc..
There is no question he needs to know when we are in total disagreement.
But more importantly, our legislators need to know. I have already been in contact here, and expect to continue putting pressure on them. this isn't to say I will be abusing them with incessant contacts, but rather I will continue to provide a consistent message that they do not need to go along with the governor's liberal agenda to get along. Frankly, Snyder has made it clear he wants to expand crony capitalism, and if the Republicans in the house and senate wish to be viewed in that way then he will have willing allies.
So we don't have all three branches like we thought Nov 5. The Michigan legislature has a great number of our friends and colleagues however, who have been along side us in our quest to take back Michigan from the failure that was liberal democrat control. I guess we will have to live with that. But we have to embolden our stalwarts, so they know we have their back.
First hand, I have begun to experience what it means to be accountable to constituents, and especially those who disagree with my stands..
