Chill Pill: Jennifer Granholm Has a Howard Dean Moment at DNC
Townhall.com ^ | September 7, 2012 | Kate Hicks

Posted on 09/07/2012 7:08:28 PM PDT by Kaslin

Jennifer Granholm was Michigan governor from 2003-2011. During that time, the state experienced major economic decline, an unemployment level higher than the national average, and population loss. She was replaced by Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican elected in 2010. Michigan has since begun to see its greatest level of economic development in a decade. No one misses her.

Of course, failed economic policies weren't any kind of dealbreaker for a speaking slot at the DNC; in fact, one might say they were a requirement. And all's the better that her delivery is in the style of Howard Dean. Yeaaaaah!

Jennifer Granholm DNC Speech Highlights: 'Rev Up Your Engines'

Maybe they should have considered choosing someone else to speak favorably about the bailout -- you know, maybe someone who didn't preside over the state during the auto industry's major decline. But hey, her unbridled enthusiasm for the president can't be beat, and that's getting tougher to find these days. Forward!

Update: Completely neglected to point out one of the best parts of this entire video: the woman in the crowd, cheering on Granholm's pro-bailout freak-out, who's holding...a Ford sign. Does it get more ironic?

I think just the thought of all of those “free” condoms paid for by the taxpayers really fired her up.

As someone pointed out at FR, the modern Democrat party is post-modern. Neither internal consistency nor real-world results matter. Only the narrative.

As the Cubans used to say, sure, Cuba is a failure, but it’s “our” failure.

My daughter graduated U Michigan in 2010. Obama and Granholm were there. She sat next to him on the platform, and the wife and I remarked that it appeared that she was about to do something to him that cannot be discussed on Jim Robinson’s site. She embarrassed herself that day and she did it again in Charlotte. She needs to be medicated.

I did notice that she wore a blue dress, in case Willy was free and about.

She couldn’t get away from Michigan fast enough.

Maybe the mole she had removed from her face was actually her brain.

Howard Dean was doomed because the national news covered it. Jennifer whatshername is no where on the news. I have not seen it at all and I watch Fox News pretty regularly.

HAHA and the left wing sites are giving her speech as one of the best. Two worlds apart.

She was really close to it...she did not leave him alone for a minute; smiling, giggling, touching him...even *I* felt sorry for Obama that day. And her speech was even worse—that woman is insufferable.

She acted and sounded like a complete nutcase. Her delivery was 100% crazy, and just about everything out of her mouth was a lie. She would be a perfect running mate for retard Joe Biden in 2016. A mental defective and a nut would be the perfect ticket for the commiecrats.

And she is most definitely not eligible to be president. Thank God for borders.

My daughter is in Atlanta now, but still flies back twice each fall for a few games at the big house. And, I raised a good conservative...she used to laugh at the lefties that she encountered in Ann Arbor.

That explains the cheers from the left

I’m only about 30 miles west of Ann Arbor (Near Booklyn) and its a whole different country here.
