You're nuts if you think that Michigan union members will let Republican fat-cats destroy the middle class without a fight. This is just another example of how out of touch right wing morons are with working class America. The Koch brother's stooges will pay for this.
How many union members will opt to save the dues money?

I'll do you one better, numbnuts; I wont worry about ANY of them, because they really dont affect me that much. I long ago moved away to a remote rural area where urban maggots cant survive. Its a very liberating feeling, and I really dont care what happens in your little electoral pissing matches (although I DO enjoy dipsticks like you crowing over tiny, temporary victories)....:-)
I don't believe you. You sound like a long-term project-dweller to me.

Senior Republican campaign operatives who gathered over beer last week in Alexandria for a post-election briefing were taken aback by what they were told. A nonpartisan research firm presented data showing that President Obama had far outperformed Mitt Romney in managing the largest single expenditure of the campaign: television advertising.
Romney’s spending decisions on advertising look like “campaign malpractice,” said one person who had reviewed the newly circulated data.
Obama and his allies spent less on advertising than Romney and his allies but got far more — in the number of ads broadcast, in visibility in key markets and in targeting critical demographic groups, such as the working class and younger voters in swing states. As the presidential race entered its final, furious phase, for example, millions of college football fans tuning in to televised games saw repeated ads for Obama but relatively few from the Romney campaign.
All told, from June through Election Day, the Obama campaign and its allies aired about 50,000 more ads than Romney and his allies, according to the research firm’s data.
“The Obama guys put more lead on the target and were buying their bullets cheaper,” said an attendee at the briefing, Will Feltus, a senior vice president at National Media, the firm that represented Romney in 2008 and President George W. Bush in his 2004 reelection effort.
That contrast is among a series of revelations creating a stir in recent days as GOP consultants conduct postmortem meetings to review what went wrong in Romney’s surprisingly lopsided loss. To some Republicans, the ad-buying strategy reflected other problems with the campaign, including an insular nature that left it closed to advice from the outside. Romney campaign officials rejected the criticism.

Yeah. Some of us will just never accept that we ran the shittiest of candidates, and got what we asked for. On our knees. Pleading.

It paid off, too...

Edmunds Auto Observer - Consumer Reports Dings New Ford Models: http://www.edmunds.com/autoobserver-archive/2...

"Of the 91 Japanese models with sufficient data, 87 (or 96 percent) were rated average or better in predicted reliability; 24 Japanese models earned the highest rating. Mazda showed the biggest improvement, moving up eight spots from last year and having all models rate above average. Toyota retained its sixth overall position with every Toyota model except the all-wheel-drive Sienna minivan scoring average or better. Honda had just one below-average vehicle, the redesigned Odyssey minivan."

Edmunds Inside Line - Ford Hits Major Pothole With 2012 Consumer Reports Reliability Survey: http://www.insideline.com/ford/ford-hits-majo...

"Toyota is "setting the pace in reliability," Consumer Reports said. Scion, Toyota and Lexus swept the top spots in the reliability study, with the 2013 Toyota Prius C earning Consumer Reports' top score overall.

Edmunds says: The top seven spots in the new reliability study are all held by Japanese brands. Ford isn't the only manufacturer that needs work in this department."

And the Boy Messiah claims he received a mandate. Hee, Hee.

The working folks, the REAL people, are telling him where to shove it.

Earlier, when the UAW tried to screw over Gov. Snyder with Michigan's Prop 2(to incorporate unions into the State Constitution), Michigan voters overwhelmingly shot it down. The Socialists have lost and are now sending their thug troops into Lansing to tear it down.

Maybe the Jerk-In-Chief along with Eric Racist Holder can turn this all into a race war or another Trayvon tear-jerker. I can't see how but never put anything past the Socialists. Look at how Stalin, Lenin, Hitler and Castro did it. The Blame game gets people killed and monsters into power.

When i was in college i took a job at a union creamery. The union folks knew i would only be there during summer break and never receive any union "benefits". They had no problem taking my money. Folks in Michigan wont be getting ripped off by the unions like i did.
