John Edwards Buys Michigan

Well, maybe John Edwards didn't really buy Michigan, but he did come to Detroit to purchase votes. As the Detroit Free Press reports,
The U.S. government should invest billions to help Michigan become the hub for transforming the nation's energy economy, Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards said Saturday.

Speaking to more than 1,800 Democrats at the annual Jefferson Jackson dinner at Cobo Center in Detroit, Edwards said he'd like to see Michigan evolve.

"We should put billions of dollars into creation of the new technology and $1 billion should go right to the car companies," he said. "I don't want to see the cars of the future built anywhere else."
Of course there are always people who are glad to sell their precious vote to the hightest bidder.
Gov. Jennifer Granholm warned that Edwards wouldn't receive the state's Democratic support if he doesn't support fair trade and programs that will invest in workers who have lost manufacturing jobs.

"We're not going to stop working until we get George Bush out of office and replaced with a Democrat who cares about Michigan," she said.
The larger problem is that even if Edwards is elected president and makes good on his promise, he will not be using his own money. He doesn't have to. He's free to go on getting $400.00 haircuts and creating larger and larger carbon footprints by building more 27,000 square foot homes. He, like every other pandering politician on both sides of the aisle will have access to that bottomless bag of money supplied by American tax dollars.

What will Edwards offer other states? What will other candidates offer Michigan? I can't wait to find out.

I can't wait either.

I wonder how much more I will pay in taxes I will pay, to find out this crazy information.

I seem to be following two women around the blogosphere. I hope they don’t think I’m a stalker. I wish it was different in the GOP, but I think there is too much money to be lost to be tough on illegal immigration.

Hey, I run a respectable (sort of) blog here. Watch that stalking stuff! . . . or make a reality TV show out of it.
