Granholm 'ready to eat' Republicans

Really? Does she have a lot of Pepto-Bismol on hand? Because they can't be good for your stomach. I know they make me ill quite frequently.

Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm made two stops in mid-Michigan Saturday afternoon -- to applaud Dow Chemical's new Michigan Operations manufacturing site in Midland and to cheer Democrats and boo Republicans at the Saginaw County Democratic Party fall banquet in Saginaw Township.


Granholm said if Dow can do it, the rest of Michigan can as well.

"Our economic plan in Michigan is proceeding in the middle of an economic crisis," she said. "But sometimes it takes a crisis to get things done. It's been said, 'A crisis is a terrible thing to waste.' "

She said her "Jobs Today, Jobs Tomorrow" plan will diversify state jobs and move away from the state's dependence on the automotive industry. The plan focuses on industries based on life sciences, alternative energy, advanced manufacturing and homeland security and defense technology.

At the Democratic Party banquet, Granholm said she was "ready to eat some Republicans."

"This is a year that Democrats can be loud and proud," she said. "Historically, this party has stood up for the everyday man. The Democrats gave us Social Security, minimum wage law, Medicare and Medicaid, Civil Rights Act, Voters Rights Act, the Parental Leave Act and more.

"In contrast, (the Republicans) believe that if we give enough to the folks at the very top, it'll eventually trickle down to the rest of us. Well, there's enough wealth to the powerful few at the top. We've seen enough of that.

Lovin' the message here. Hope everyone "gets it"- the Republicans are lying to you as they steal your money.

Seriously, what does it take until people figure this out?
