Obama appoints The Matt Millen of Governors to his economic team

We now have an economic team to screw the country like they screwed Michigan. Of all the individuals that could be picked to Obama's economic team, we have this:

From the Detroit Free Press

WASHINGTON -- Gov. Jennifer Granholm and former U.S. Rep. David Bonior will serve on a panel of financial luminaries and corporate experts advising President-elect Barack Obama on the nation’s hard-bitten economy, ensuring Michigan, its troubled auto industry and labor has a seat at the table.

That's about as smart as appointing Ted Nugent to PETA's board of directors. What the hell was he thinking? Granholm's legacy on the economy are service tax increases, business tax increase, sin taxes, income taxes, tax shifts, fee increases, surcharges, unemployment, people leaving the state, debt, big government regulation, a push for a gas tax, pork projects for a $116 million dollar state police building, government picking winners and losers,

This country and state voted for Obama, so don't bitch to me. It's time for you to assume the position! "Thank you sir, may I have another!"

As the Motorhead classic song Dogs goes

Here we are in the years
The blood, the sweat, the tears
Have made us bondage slaves
In a world that we never made,
The politicians lick our bones,
The tacticians, hearts of stone
They turn us against our brothers
Make us fight and kill each other
Locked in lust we put our trust in dogs

Here we are again,
The dead still look the same
Who cares they're soon forgotten
Nobody gonna miss a corpse that's rotten
Your fathers, mothers, daughters, sons
Have been taken by the chosen ones
But don't you forget you made the choice,
You made your mark, you raised your voice,
They're all the same, you're all to blame
You're dogs!

Yes, I blame the voters. They're dogs.

Why do you blame Granholm for everything? She was not responsible for the auto industry, there was a Republican House and Senate for her first four years and the obstructionist Senate will remain until 2010.

She is a very smart woman who has a vision for the future in alternative energies -- one that most Republicans are now finally supporting.

Remember that the economy in Michigan was already tanking while Engler was in office. BTW, I can't see that he's done much for manufacturing as head of NAM.

The "Republicans" - Speaker Johnson and Senate Majority leader Sikkema gave Granholm almost everything she wanted. Her first two years, she got everything. She had a more hostile house after that until 06, but the senate was friendly to her until Bishop was there. Despite that, she still got her tax increases in. Still, she has two houses today. After six years, what's there now is her legacy, and Dillons, Johnson's and Sikkema's.

Engler's 3rd term wasn't great, but he did a real good job his first two terms, and Michigan was in much better shape then. I'll take John Engler over Granholm any day of the week. She's not a bad person, but she's a horrible governor.
