Hey Jim Marcinkowski - Buy American!!!

I did a "Whois" search through network solutions and looked up Jim Marcinkowski's website address and registry information.

Is America (let alone Michigan) not good enough for you, Jim?

Marcinkowski didn't buy the domain name, I did and donated it to him. How typical for Republicans to export thousands of jobs from Michigan and then point in the other direction and exclaim "Oh my, why didn't he buy it here?" - as they drive away in their Lexus!

Grow up Republican Michigander!

By the way, why isn't DeVos creating jobs in Michigan instead of China???

Good one Michigan Democrat. But you won’t get an answer to your question about the fuller brush man’s China job creation. The “MI Republican” ignores points he can’t counter or he brings up other stuff. It’s nice to see some people are here counter the gop misinformation, which is a full-time job.

By the way, how many jobs has the UAW's 'wages for not working' contract sent to China? "Solidarity forever" must not work outside the factory, because I see UAW and NEA members shopping at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target and every other store that sells products made outside the USA. Since the UAW donates most of its political funds to Democrats, why did Clinton flack for NAFTA?

Move outside your glass houses before you start tossing rocks at others'.

Well, that doesn't change the fact that Jim Marcinkowski's campaign outsourced a website out of state and out of country. Unlike Rogers, who buys on in East Lansing.

When I vote for a candidate, I don't just vote for the candidate, but the entire team. Oftentimes, the winning candidate takes his staffers and top supporters to Washington or his district office.

"""""Oh my, why didn't he buy it here?" - as they drive away in their Lexus!"""

I own a Lexus? That's news to me. Last I checked, I drive a Ford as I've always done since I was 16. All of our county party officers drive American cars, as do our representatives as of the last time I saw them. Dick DeVos drives American as well.

And speaking of China, Levin and Stabenow both supported Most Favored Nation trade status for them. As did Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, and John Edwards. NAFTA was supported by Clinton and Kerry. Same with GATT, which was the really bad trade deal. That all can be found at the thomas.loc.gov website.

As for DeVos and China, the only products he builds in China are the products he sell there. That's because of a Chinese regulation so he can access their markets. That brings money home to Michigan for the Michigan economy - much like buying a Honda built in Ohio still sends money to Japan.

As for Granholm's job record....well it goes along with Matt Millen's record as GM of the Detroit Lions. Losses after more losses.

Yeah, Right said...

Donated the site to Marcinkowski? Then why the whois "protection"? What are you hiding?

I haven't dropped by in a while. Seems the Michigan Dems have sicced their trolls on you. I guess it's easier to attack you than to defend the complete incompetence of their Canadian governor and their worthless, Hillary-clone senator.

By the way, I heard the Canadian governor on WJR blaming Michigan's bad economy on Bush. Funny how every other place in the country is doing great, but Granholm's little over-taxed, over-regulated fiefdom is hemmorhaging jobs, not to China, but to Indiana, South Carolina, Texas, and Alabama. You know, those states she and her ilk look down their noses at.

Oh, and what is the Canadian Governor's plan for bringing jobs to Michigan? Oh, yeah, I remember.

1. Raise taxes on job providers to pay for expanding the education and health care bureaucracies.

2. ???????????

3. More jobs!

So, when did she bring in the Underpants Gnomes as her economic advisors?

Anyway, Michigan Democrat, my advice to you if you want to re-elect your Canadian governor is to follow the example of Christine Fraudoire in Washington state. Get all the illegal immigrants and dead people you can to vote as often as you can get away with. And if that fails, have operatives in Detroit mysteriously find caches of uncounted ballots several weeks after the election. The Washington Democrats managed to count more votes in Seattle than there were registered voters. If you guys can get a sleazebag like Kwame elected in Detroit, I'm sure you can come up with enough "votes" to carry your Canadian governor back into office.

Our Governor is an American! Maybe it's too hard for you to read so you just listen to Rush? I just don't understand how you came up with the load of bad information in just one tiny little post?

"Republican Michigander" apparently knows the difference between a domain name registration and a web site, but chooses to mislead, distort, dissemble.
