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.
She gave him a Lewinski?
I did notice that she wore a blue dress, in case Willy was free and about.
that “thing” on her face is all the birth control she ever needed.
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.
This woman is insane - no wonder she is a star in the democrat party.
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.
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.
LOL! I was just thinking of that as I scrolled down.
Dude, you are seriously nuts
My dog wouldn't hit that sh*t
nholm 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.
Thats what libs consider a success, otherwise she wouldn’t have been given a speaking spot.
Another of my daughters graduated Cornell, and I DETESTED everything about that campus.
She sounded drunk
To bad I missed it. Maybe they will repeat it over the weekend.
I guess we may need a northern wall too. lol
She sounded drunk
Or off her meds. In any case, she’s no Evita Peron.
OK...I’l do it:
>>Here’s a quarter. Go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face.<<
Sound like that’s where she has her “roots”.
“MITT ROMNEY SAID LET THE CAR COMPANIES GO BANKRUPT!”
Uh, Jenny, they DID go bankrupt.
Her voice and her manner strike me as one of those “manly” women like Napolitano, but that’s just me (husband and children do not nullify that possibility, as we can see by Mrs. Clinton).
Under Granholm, it was Looney Tunes on the Mich Supreme Court. Contracts weren’t worth the paper they were printed on, and companies that tried to stand on their contracts were considered frauds. the damage to Michigan jurisprudence is immeasurable.
PS. No sane corporation would choose to do business in Michigan.
Then again, I live in NY so I don't get any real campaign commercials or campaigning itself done here. So maybe it's out there. Is the former Gov stupid, just a flat out liar, or both?
I remember when she was first elected Governor. Democrats (and some Republicans) bemoaned the fact that she was born in Canada, because the “rising star” could never be President...
I would-and so would YOU!
Watch the video with the audio off - it’s even more hilarious watching her go thru all those theatrics without hearing what she is saying.
And I wouldn’t touch her with a 10” pole.
I think she was drunk.
Now we know what Jonestown looked like right before they put out the tubs of Kool-Aid.
Jennifer Granholm was Michigan governor from 2003-2011.
That explains Michigans problems right there!
Watched that melt down. That women is in need of serious medical attention!
He wouldn’t? Not even a leg bang? You raised him well! Good Doggy!!
We have enough headcases, didn’t Michigan import this clown from Canada?
Yes, and i’m sure most Canucks says thank you and you’r welcome LOL
Jennifer Granholm is par in public stature with the former NC Governor...I forget the B$%C& ‘s name.(not really, I just refuse to print it)
I will say that female former and current Republican Governors seem to command much more retrospective respect than their putative Democrat equals.
Mary from Louisianna comes to mind.
But even Mary Landrieu can pretend to still sleep well at night, blaming all her leadership failures on “an act from God”,(Katrina) while paying big bucks to wikipedia posters.
Poor Jennifer Granholm and Beverly Perdue can only blame themselves, if they were honest women. Since it is patently apparent nobody belives that they were victims of a natural disaster ...
I think she had been knocking back a few martinis right before her speech.
She’s Canadian. Blame Canada.
