Gretchen Whitmer was Democrats' poor
choice to respond to Trump

Original Article

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is commonly referred to in Washington as a master tactician. But like the partisan impeachment fiasco and the humiliating Iowa caucus disaster, her selection of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to deliver this year’s response to President Trump’s State of the Union address was a major strategic misstep. The selection of Whitmer was a politically calculated decision to introduce a relatively new name on the national scene from a state that will play a critical role in November. The irony of Whitmer’s selection, however, is that she represents exactly what is wrong with today’s Democratic Party — unrealistic promises, massive tax hikes,

Michigan is a blue collar state. Trump has helped blue collar people the most, by far.

The dimmies wanted a new and pretty face to represent them in countering the SOTU but they forgot that the woman had to speak. When her big tax was not approved, she took her spite out on children and the poor, the dimmies bread and butter. Forty five cents a gallon? Truly stupid governing but then Michigan is known for its poor choices in politicians.

She's the Governor of my State, she's wacky and a typical democrat panderer. Pelosi also picked our past Governor Jennifer Granholm to give the dem response, it was the same type of bs. She didn't end up as a "rising star" either..

Gretch wants to impose a 45 cents per gallon gas tax to fix the roads here. Guaranteed that if it passed, less than 5 cents of that would actually go to the roads. Because Democrats.

Typical Democrat. She failed in raising gas taxes by 45 cents a gallon that was sold to "fix the roads", yet the amendments and crud added on meant that less than 20% would have gone to road repair. Now her next great idea is to float bonds without taxpayer approval to borrow money to fix roads. Somebody else's money.

Whitmer talked about Muskegon Heights road problems and the Flint water crisis. Both are Democrat run cities. The roads and water systems are both local government responsibilities! Flint created their own water crisis by not maintaining/replacing the the pipes. Muskegon Heights created their own street issues by not maintaining them. All of the "solutions" that Whitmer gave were by local leaders or governors. There was a distinct absence of national Democrat Congressional leaders named on her list of who was able to fix things. Whitmer's $0.45 per gallon gas tax was luckily not implemented. It would have cost my business over $15,000.00 per year!

Gretchen gave us a vivid example of a clueless Democrat. She went on and on about fixing potholes--even with dirt---, and infrastructure repair, bridge repair, etc. But all the examples she gave were from DEMOCRAT STATES. No one ever asked her why it was in all of these states that were Democrat run for years, and collected taxes to repair roads and bridges for years, everything was falling apart and even more taxes are needed. IT IS THE DEMOCRAT CONTROL that is the problem.

Dems have no leadership and they have no bench. After they rammed BOCare down our throats, they lost massively in state elections. They still held on in very liberal states but they are all Leftists and, as exhibited, do NOT have good stories to tell. Gretchen shouldn't be embarrassed however. Look how Nasty Pelousy, Schiffty, Nadless, and Chucky have fared lately. There is no one with real political skill to train the up and comers. The party is imploding with the voters and in its skills.

What was amazing a clue as to how clueless she is that she bragged about a kid filling potholes with dirt! Number one, filling potholes is a state function which means she and her party have failed. Number two, you never fill a pothole with dirt because it will wash ut after the first rain. And three, why is a kid doing that DOT's job in the first place? Number four, she is so stupid that she is bragging about a kid filling potholes with dirt not being smart enough to realize that makes her administration look extremely incompetent! She looks an awful lot like a Pelosi protege!

Actually there are a lot of people in California that are not leftists. The problem is the DemonRats manipulated the rules, the districting and the elections to gain monopolistic control over the state. They are manipulating each state, one st s time, a little at a time so (non-leftist) people won't notice and don't push back enough to make a difference. Look at Virginia. They are trying to turn Texas too. Anyway, Witless tried to cut all those services...what was she keeping? Lots of unnecessary bureaucracy, excess state government employees and their fat guaranteed pensions, and other wasteful stuff? I wonder...

JUMONVILLE, Pennsylvania — We are a country built on not one, but several, leaps of faith.Certainly, it was a leap of faith when a young George Washington, then a lieutenant colonel of the colonial forces, found himself mired in a deadly skirmish here in this densely wooded mountaintop of Chestnut Ridge. He, his men, and ultimately his cause, protecting the property lines of the British colonies, would prevail.That faith didn’t exactly work out the way Washington believed at the time. He was looking for glory and ascension within the ranks of Britain’s colonial army; what he ultimately achieved here was the first shots of the French and Indian War.

One of the liberal myths that you can see being spread on social media, aided by some in the liberal media, is that Fox News downplayed the Wuhan coronavirus and because of that that Republicans/evangelicals/those “other people are going to spread infection everywhere, just you wait and see. The problem with this goofy conspiracy theory is that every element of it is wrong. Fox didn’t downplay it more than any other media outlet. Indeed it wasn’t Fox calling things like Trump cutting travel from China racist and suggesting there was nothing to fear, it was Democrats and outlets like the New York Times.

King, who runs his company with his son, has about 100 clients and four full-time employees — more during peak summer and winter months. This is the time of year when he’s usually busy cleaning up the vestiges of winter and prepping yards for mowing. No such luck this spring.

But Trump was right about China. Right that its behavior was unprincipled and dangerous. Right that our trade imbalance with them represented a power imbalance that they could abuse.

It doesn’t help that Biden is a 40-year political veteran who’s already failed twice at capturing a coveted seat at America’s helm. “The second- or third-time runner is part of a broader trend
