The Republicans controlling the Michigan government are more like Mississippi Republicans than New England Republicans.

This won't happen until the Dems take back control of the legislature & the Gov's office, and even that's not a certainty.

I'll defer to you familiarity with Mich. politics but I do believe that getting support from such big name companies will help. It may take time as you said, but this certainly adds fuel to our support.

Don't kid yourself about New England Republicans. There are a few of the old school left around [Think Senator Collins]. But the cleansing has been as thorough as in the rest of the country.

The only people left in leadership in the New England Republican parties are misfits who can't accept that the rest of the world doesn't bow to them.

Well that's a shame.

Maybe after the current version of the GOP gets crushed in yet another presidential election, we'll see a return of the Eisenhower-Rockefeller Republicans.

We can hope. Unfortunately, the average Republican voter holds onto several memes and votes dutifully without thinking: Republicans are more fiscally responsible (despite tons of evidence to the contrary--both on spending and on taxation). Republicans are better on foreign policy. Republicans support individual freedom (unless your boss or someone else's preacher wants to circumvent it). Republicans bring greater law and order, despite their countenance of self-appointed militias harassing others who are minding their own business.

Republicans are very good at convincing people that they love the flag, apple pie, god, and their mothers more than anyone else. And people vote on their impressions of candidates sincerity. Voting records are much too difficult to parse. And the real agenda is spoken only behind closed doors to supporters with big check books and big stakes in the outcome. Praise the lord for the 47% video, or we'd be looking at President Mittens right now.

Benghazi!! and "OBAMACARE IS BRINGING ON THE END OF THE WORLD!!!! NO ONE CAN AFFORD ANYTHING ANYMORE!!! INNOCENT CHILDREN ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED IN THEIR BEDS!!!!" you know the idiot crowd is stupid enough to buy it. And you know we're WAY outnumbered by idiots in this country....:(
