This state is full of idiots as proven with the re-election of Granholm and continue elections of Levin and Stebenaugh. Michigan won't see any turn around until more liberals leave it or die off. It's too bad. This state has so much potential if conservative values thrived instead of the socialism brought forth by liberals. While there is socialism, Michigan is a dead state.

This is completely unsubstantiated. Other media outlets were reporting it as such. Nice continued job with sensationalist reporting, WOOD.

Full Disclosure: I will not be voting for John McCain in my lifetime.

Think about this:

Granholm supports Obama.

That means that Granholm agrees with Obama's method of running the country.

What is wrong with that picture?

I'll be doing the exact opposite of what Granholm does.

Betsy Devos must be distraught and in tears. She's abusing her servants right now as we speak.

Damn no more $100 per plate dinners. No more Palin reading talking points off a teleprompter. This is an outrage.

Shut your pathetic hole about socialism. The Republicans are all for socialism when it benefits the rich and the financial companies (i.e the bailout)
If you don't like it, get the funk out

Engler was a train wreck just like his kissing cousin Bush. McBush is conceeding Michigan because he wants to spend resources in states where it is easier to con the people into believing he will not bring us 4 more years of Bush.

If his adds would tell us his plan maybe he could do more in this state. All he does is tell us what the other side is doing wrong Not what he will do right. I hope that this isn't how he would run the counrty. Just give up when it doesn't go his way? I for one gave up on the Rep party long ago. I'm sick of all of them!

Looks like McCain is turning his back on Michigan and the middle class people of this country. I guess if we made more than 5 million per year we would be more important to him.

McCain's campaign is tanking, big time. His gimmick VP pick is really dragging him down. According to an ABC-Washington Post poll, one third of voters are more likely not going to vote for him because of his dullard VP.

This is great news for america, and the world. The republican reign of terror is coming to an end.

Sorry, should have read "McCain has now joined a lot of other people. Millions have already given up on Michigan."

Wow. If story is true, John McCain doesn't care about Michigan.

C'mon Johnny, say it isn't so. I almost considered voting for you. Now it's official.

Great! I'm glad the quitter is gone! Do we need a quitter in any state? The answer is NO. This is such good news, it will only get better and better tonight. Palin will self-destruct.

oh cry me a river.
mcpampers has been here...what...six, seven times. how many times did he actually talk to the people..i mean everyday people. he smoozed with the fatcats (the same ones he wants to bailout) all but the one time when he had an audience of what...couple hundred, couple thousand ?
yet you people still want to suck in his flatulation, melt at the thought of him even coming to michigan, and even bought the political move by bringing in sarah smile just to sway votes to get him, mcpampers elected president ..... and get the power....you should be insulted. he lies, he throws you a cookie, he waves a carrot in front of your nose, BUT...the fatcats he hangs with and promises THEM ....but as you can see THEY have stopped giving him money and looking forward to 4 years from now.
follow the leader...fatcats gave up...get the hint !!
people are tired of the lies, spins, twists,...just the same ole...period !
america used to be a beautiful tree...full of fruit, blossoms, leaves, green,....now the tree has been stripped, barron, fruitless, withering, ready to fall in a strong wind.
okay, the crooks got it all...so lets start over and heal our tree and nurse it back to life !!
