State Rep. Wenke admits MI Republicans "quash" good ideas

Really? Do tell.

He said a "bitter partisan spirit" pervades Lansing, as the Republican majority quashes or co-opts good Democratic ideas.

"I want to tell the people of Michigan how it really works in Lansing," he said. "That's a somewhat risky thing to do."

Why? Telling the truth get you in trouble with the Republican Party nowadays?

There in a nutshell is what is wrong with the current GOP- moderates don't have the courage to stand up to the extremists who dominate the party. Until they do, Republicans cannot be trusted with leadership positions. This guy knows that this is wrong, and yet he won't do anything about it.

While a supporter of Republican gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos, Wenke said blaming Gov. Jennifer Granholm for the state's woes is "plain dishonest."

If he supports DeVos, and won't take the "risk" to tell us "how it works", and knows blaming Granholm is "dishonest", then he is just another gutless Republican who is costing the state in terms of forward progress. He puts his party before his duty to the people.

DeVos is as partisan as they come. Read this and tell me I'm wrong. Dick is more interested in "beating the Democrats" than he is in providing leadership for us all. Do we really want that kind of division to continue?

Bye-bye, Mr. Wenke. Thanks for playing. You are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Fire your local Republican this November. After all, they now admit to hurting the state for partisan reasons.

What more proof do you need?
