Hold on to your wallet!

From the AP

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Jennifer Granholm on Thursday picked outgoing state Sen. Bob Emerson of Flint to be her new budget director.

Emerson would replace Mary Lannoye, who is becoming Granholm's chief of staff. The effective date of Emerson's appointment would be Jan. 3.

"Bob has earned not only my respect but the respect of those on both sides of the aisle as a fair and honest individual with a passion for making Michigan a better place for everyone," Granholm said in a statement. "I am honored that Bob will continue his service to the citizens of Michigan."



Bob Emerson was one of the most left wing of all of Michigan's state senators. His budgets, combined with the constitution convention project from Phil Power/Joe Schwarz, should scare all Michiganders.

It figures.

Granholm's response to a $50 million budget overrun is to just fire someone. And then hire someone else who isn't qualified.

Does she think her Jedi Mind Tricks will work? "Move along, these are not the budget overruns you are looking for."

And I'm sure there's a hidden memo floating around the Exeuctive Offices... It says "Do not, under any circumstances, say TAX HIKE."
