Granholm Live @ 6:05 Tonight
Associated Press ^ | 9-27-2007 | Associated Press

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Governor Granholm plans to give a five-minute televised address at 6:05 this evening to outline budget negotiations and what could happen if there's a government shutdown on Monday.

State leaders were still talking today to try and avoid the shutdown.

Granholm already has warned that state parks could close, and Detroit casinos and liquor sales could take a hit if she has to shut down government because a budget deal isn't reached today.

State programs that protect citizens' health and safety, such as state police patrols, could continue.

The Democratic governor, Democrat-controlled House and Republican-controlled Senate have failed to agree on how to erase a projected $1.75 billion deficit in the upcoming state budget.


TOPICS: Government; US: Michigan
KEYWORDS: budget; granholm; shutdown
Wonder if she will mention the State Police Palace boondoggle at the tune of $150 million.

I keep thinking back to her first election's campaign quote "in 5 years ... your'e going to be blown away"

She's right, lot's of things have been blown away .... hopes, dreams, futures, jobs.

I just watched it! What a bunch of political garbage. The state is not like it once was, therefore you can’t keep spending like that. She doesn’t get it. I am tired of this crap, and I just moved here.

A Japanese doctor says, “Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of one man, put it in another, and have him out looking for work in six weeks.”

A German doctor says, “That is nothing. We can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him out looking for work in four weeks.”

A British doctor says, “In my country medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, put it in another, and have both of them out looking for work in two weeks.”

The Canadian doctor, not to be outdone, interjected, “You guys are way behind. We took a woman with no brains, sent her to Michigan where she became Governor, and now half the state is out looking for work.”

The one bright spot here may be that all this may have ruined Jenny’s political career. She cannot go away fast enough for me.

Let’s hope so. It ruined G. Mennen Williams presidential aspirations in the 50’s.

With Granholm, there's only a brown spot.

Two things come to mind about that image.

1. Melanoma
2. Dorian Grey

Considering the amount of responses on this thread, nobody gives a crap about a democrat governor trashing an entire state.

Well, Westlander, you and I better get our checkbooks out.

Or pitchforks.
