McCain campaign pulls out of Michigan

Posted by: ST on October 2, 2008 at 2:53 pm

Jonathan Martin has the scoop.

Bottom line is that things looked competitive there for a bit but with the economy in the shape that it’s in right now, growing numbers of Michiganders – bizarrely trusting Democrats on the issue of the economy regardless of years of them running the economy there into the ground – are supporting Barack Obama, who has his own role to play in the nation’s current economic crisis, along with several other prominent Democrats. Go figure.

Martin reports that Team Mc will send the Michigan campaign staffers to other battleground states like Florida, Wisconsin, and Ohio.

Semi-related: Speaking of the economy, a YouTube group which calls itself the Taxpayers for Truth, has posted an explosive video that, from Ed Morrissey’s description, sounds like a must-watch:

The Bush administration frog-marched executives from Enron, Tyco, and Worldcom into federal prison for their financial shenanigans, in collapses that look positively microscopic in the wake of the failure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Why hasn’t anyone in the recent failure received the same treatment?

I wonder just how long it will be before Obama sicks his thug legal eagles on Taxpayers for Truth?

    Saw that this AM … shame McCain abides by the law he agreed to while Obama can do whatever he can to raise big $$$ and put them to good use whenever & wherever he wants, after promising he’d abide by those same limits.

  2. I don’t get it. Democrats in the Michigan legislature and Governor Granholm have run that state into the ground, and a corrupt Democratic mayor of Detroit –an ally of Obama– was just forced to plead guilty, resigning his office. How on Earth can anyone there sensibly vote for Obama?

    Is there something in the water? #-o

    Nope. Just something in the media.

    Um, actually, no. It’s evolution.

    I was raised near Detroit and the question of how anyone not insane could possibly vote for a Dem candidate is one I can answer. There is a culture of complete and utter parasitism that exists in the state’s most populated areas. Furthermore, this is nothing new; it has taken decades to develop and believe me, urban politicians there are loathe to give it up for obvious reasons.
