Posted on 01/14/2011 10:32:02 AM PST by Darren McCarty
Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), who could face a stiff reelection challenge in 2012, says shes looking forward to campaigning frequently with President Barack Obama.
Id like him to be there as much as possible. He helped save our economy in Michigan, Stabenow said last week in an interview with POLITICO in her office in the Hart Stabenow, who has served in elected office since age 24, heads into her fight for a third term facing some early warning signs.
Ive seen him stand up and be very courageous when we needed him to be. Its no small thing that he stood up and he didnt walk away from the American automobile industry at a time when there was a lot of criticism from all over the place, she said.
I have great empathy for everything that has come at them. Are there things I would do differently? Yeah, but I sure am glad hes there, she said.
The two Republicans most often mentioned as potential challengers to Stabenow are Michigan investor Tim Leuliette and former Rep. Pete Hoekstra.

Yeah, the rest of us are looking forward to seeing you appear together too, Stabs. Stand together early and often. Be sure to have the blight of Detroit and some unemployment lines as backdrops for your pics.
Hoekstra is from West Michigan so doesn’t have a chance at State Wide Office.
I might be wrong, but didn’t Obama skip michigan in 08?
He didn't need to campaign there, because McCain surrendered it in September.
Could Debbie Stabenow actually be less intelligent than Patty Murray?
She’s only off by two letters.
Yeah, by then unemployment will be down to maybe 9%.
Thanks to Mr. Obama.
Does he really believe that the voting public will think he’s serious about cutting the deficit, when he just cranked up federal spending by 26% in the past 22 months, and spent the dough on garbage?
Id like him to be there as much as possible. He helped save our economy in Michigan,
Ha ha ha ha ha.. Funniest thing I have read in a while. Somebody should post this on the Political comedy section.
I was looking the the pictures of blighted Detroit on Youtube the other day......scary!
They want more of that? Those Democrats are crazy!
The definition of an asset..... a little donkey.
Because dummy McCain not only quit here, he announced he quit to the whole world costing us two congressional seats.
McCain didn't have a chance after the bailout vote, but his quitting killed us downticket, including my district.
Yeah, by then unemployment will be down to maybe 9%.
Maybe nationally, but in Dimmigan it may get to a low of 13% but’s that will be due to emigration out of the state thereby lowering the rate of unemployed people in the state. Fotunately for me my parents moved the family out of there in 1963!
Go for it StabMeNow - go ahead and have that slime ball “help” your re-election campaign - may the state of Michigan finally get rid of you and your ilk
Stabenow’s an airhead. From what I’ve heard from DC people (not Tim Walberg - he’s too nice to say anything), she’s dumber than a box of rocks.
The economy of Michigan hasn’t hit rock bottom yet.
Just yesterday Steelcase has announced more plant closings and layoffs.
Stabancow is a moron.
He already is an asset, to every country that wants to take the US down.
Maybe Stabenow looked at it upside down.
You are absolutely right, hsalaw. Stabenow is delusional.
Michigan has the worst economy statistically in a nation suffering from a deep recession. It's the only state which lost population from the 2000 to the 2010 census. Of course, much of that can be laid at the feet of the recently departed leftist 'Rat governess, Jenny Granholm.
Many contend that at some point the few will control the masses. The only question is will it happen with or without civil unrest.
And her campaign will be titled *Cash for Cows* to raise money in a losing effort.
Will be glad when this bovine is out of our lives and no longer will be a cowpie stain on the state and country.
That’s a rhetorical question, right?
If we can't get rid of her in the 2012 cycle we will never be rid of her. And I don't like our chances.
odd, granholm blamed all michigan woes on bush just a couple years ago, and now that we’re in even worse shape, obama has “saved” our economy?
Obama is an ass and together with Stabenow they're an ass-set.
MI was a waste of time. it started that because they moved the primaries so early, DNC stripped their votes. so they all pledged not to campaign in MI. obama wasn’t even on the ticket.
he followed through and never even showed up in MI the whole election.
I really must stop reading, I am almost hysterical with laughter. Thank you.
I really, really, really would like to see her retired in the next election.
Just 37 percent approve of her job performance, according to an early January poll by The Detroit News. Unemployment is hovering at 12 percent in a state that has suffered a decadelong recession. And a resurgent GOP is emboldened by its gains in the statehouse and takeover of the governors mansion.
Im not surprised in the least because Michigan has been very, very hard hit. I dont blame them for basically saying, Im going to wait and see just overall how things are going here before I make decisions. I understand that, totally, Stabenow said about the most recent public poll results.
L O L !
My sides are actually starting to hurt. I really have to stop....
I predict former governor John Engler runs against her. I believe he moved back to Michigan within the past year or two...at least I thought I read that. Engler would trounce Stabenow.
I’m sure the feeling’s mutual. Damn, I think I wet myself laughing, typing that one.
Thanks Darren McCarty.
Whoops, thanks justiceseeker93.
Well, I certainly laughed reading your post.
I shouldn't have come back to this thread. I'm making myself hoarse laughing.
With any luck, I hope to be just as cheerful in Nov 2012, if not more so.
Yeah - just as Barry has been a real assh... er ... asset to the country.
I listened to Paul W. Smith just take Little Debbie apart on an interview. She is dumb. Just another lib who is part of the herd.Lets vote her out in 2012. She is stinking up my neighborhood.
I have in on a very close source that John will NOT run. First it would be a big pay cut for him. He is happy with what he is doing. He is enjoying his family and does not want to go through all that work again. I do not blame him.
Oh, please God, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please let < zer0 campaign for all dims across the nation starting tomorrow and not ending until the 2012 elections. Please??
“Barack Obama will be an asset in 2012 campaign”
I concur...He’s definitely a member of a major set of asses.
