    A new report suggests that former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm would have been a top candidate for secretary of education in Hillary Clinton’s cabinet had the Democratic nominee won the presidential election. Mike Allen of the recently launched news site Axios reported on Tuesday that Clinton had prepared her “ghost cabinet” list before Election Day. Granholm also was listed as the second choice for attorney general if sitting Attorney General Loretta Lynch were not retained by a Clinton administration. John Sexton, former president of New York University and former board member of the Federal Reserve, was listed second as...

    Former Governor Jennifer Granholm (D-MI), a Hillary Clinton supporter, responds to a New York Times report that Donald Trump may have avoided paying federal income taxes for 18 years. "Donald Trump is the guy who has been tweeting that half of America doesn't pay their taxes when there is a big deficit. Not every American looks for every loophole under every rock," she said on MSNBC's 'MTP Daily' on Monday. (snip) "....He's not paying for that. We're paying for that. There is a fairness issue that is very important." "He says he wants to run America like he runs his...

    In a February 2010 speech, then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm described how Michigan was becoming a center for advanced battery production, which would diversify the state’s economy. Granholm characterized the state as “becoming a world capital for advanced batteries,” and boasted that the industry was “projected to create almost 62,000 new jobs" in the state. "We have a whole industry sprouting up all over the state with respect to the battery," Granholm said in 2010. As of 2015, Michigan had 918 battery manufacturing jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That's even after billions of dollars granted to this industry...

    FMR. GOV. JENNIFER GRANHOLM (D-MI): Young women do not want to be shamed into voting and that's very clear and nobody intended for that to happen. I think what they -- I'm from the next generation after, you know, Gloria and Madeline and we -- I've got their pictures on my wall, I mean, they are just -- they're total heroes. Of course they're going to say that we want to be able to see finally a woman as president after 227 years. But the Clinton campaign is saying not just any woman. We wouldn't say vote for Sarah Palin....

    LANSING, MI — Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm was reportedly considered for a U.S. Supreme Court post in 2010 and Energy Secretary in 2012. Could she find a spot in the Obama administration as Attorney General? Welcome to Michigan Political Points, my weekly roundup of news, views and YouTubes from the state Capitol and beyond. GRANHOLM FOR AG? Granholm is among the “frequently mentioned candidates” to replace Attorney General Eric Holder, according to the New York Times. Holder resigned Thursday after six years in office. The New Republic took the speculation a step further, saying Granholm is one the four...

    During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopolous” on Sunday, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm said Syrian and Iranian leaders are behaving “more rationally” than “House Tea Party Republicans.” “It, to me, it is mind blowing this week that we see leaders of our most, biggest global adversaries, Iran, Syria, to your point, acting more rationally than the House Tea Party Republicans,” said Granholm. …

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 3/18/2013 | Bruce Walker
    As reported recently in Michigan Capitol Confidential, Michigan taxpayers shelled out a cool $40 million in tax credits to the House of Mouse for the perceived benefits of filming the movie "Oz: The Great and Powerful" in our state. As noted by several Mackinac Center analysts, there are reasons aplenty for opposing film subsidies given to any movie. Just what exactly did Michigan residents get for their government's extremely generous $40 million gift to Disney? Even if "Oz: The Great and Powerful" measured up to the aesthetics of MGM's 1939 classic "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" (it doesn't), it would...

And they looked pretty bizarre.                              Or, as the <>Bookworm suggests (h/t Doug Ross), perhaps they just hired a new pharmaceutical provider. “Do you remember Jennifer Granholm at the DNC, when she was yelling and gesticulating wildly?  She was a 33 rpm record playing at 78.”     “Watching the Vice Presidential debate tonight, it was obvious that Joe Biden had broken into her medicine cabinet and taken twice the dosage.”   Apparently Big Guy’s advice to Little Joe was right on target: “I think...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 10/10/2012 | Jarrett Skorup
    In the fall of 2010, the Michigan Economic Development Corp. — the state's "corporate welfare” arm — uploaded a video to YouTube highlighting the battery manufacturer A123 Systems. At the time, the company was promoted heavily by President Barack Obama, U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow. Since then, A123 has shed money, laid off half its workforce, recalled products and seen its stock price plummet to about 26 cents this week from a previous high of $26. Now, just two years after the initial roll-out, A123 is...

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 9/14/2012 | Manny Lopez
    Former Gov. Jennifer Granholm never met a stage she didn’t like. But she might have finally landed on one that got the best of her. In a wild and rambling speech Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention, Granholm winked and swayed and waved her way through a series of statements that excited an audience of loyalists but was short on facts. We can forgive DNC organizers for introducing her as the “governor of Michigan” and even bypass the Canadian and former governor’s amnesia about her lineage when she claimed she was “from the great state of Michigan.” Those are...

    LANSING, MI - It has been known for years that former Gov. Jennifer Granholm appeared on "The Dating Game" in 1978. Now, you can watch it below. After Granholm's fiery speech to the Democratic National Convention last week - which some have called her Howard Dean moment - a video has surfaced on YouTube of her on the dating show. She has puffy hair - lots of it - wears tight jeans and suspenders, and asks questions of the three bachelors like "What was the most famous girl you ever dated famous for?" The host says she hails from British...

    This is a real howler coming from a woman replaced by a Republican after her failed policies rained as much misery on the State of Michigan as any hurricane. But let's talk about the real issues, and that's the media. If some obscure, no-name Republican City Councilman in some unincorporated small Southern town tweeted these exact words out after President Obama's convention was delayed by a hurricane, right now it would be the lead on Politico, Andrea Mitchell's wig hair would be on fire, Michael Steele and Joe Scarborough would've called a joint press

    Amid Democrat attempts to use the Trayvon Martin shooting as a means to push for the repeal of Stand Your Ground laws, it’s been interesting to note how many Democrats have a past that includes support for them. For example, on April 2nd, I had a post on Big Government that highlighted how former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, a Democrat, used her Current TV show to lambaste Stand Your Ground laws, and to blame Republicans for the existence of such laws in the first place. However, as I showed, the dirty little secret is that Granholm signed Michigan’s Stand Your...

    A virtually unseen video has surfaced that highlights the high-powered political rhetoric and unrealized promises put forth by President Barack Obama and Michigan’s top Democratic politicians regarding the heavily subsidized and now-troubled A123 Systems battery manufacturer. The video, which had just over 600 views since it was posted in Oct. 2010 on Youtube, has Obama, U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and U.S. Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow singing the praises of the now-troubled advanced battery manufacturer A123 Systems. A123 Systems, which opened its lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in Livonia in September 2010, saw...

    (Jennifer) Granholm's first night on Current TV offered plenty of fodder for her fans and critics alike. “The War Room With Jennifer Granholm” tonight joined the prime-time lineup on the left-leaning cable channel half-owned by former Vice President Al Gore, and her show will run at least through the November elections. “I'm obsessed with democracy,” the former Michigan governor said, by way of introducing the first episode, which combines standard talking-head political analysis with pre-produced segments. “I've been there on the ground when people have lost their jobs, their homes, their loved ones overseas.” Since cable political talk shows do...

    Flint, a city where more than half the children live below the poverty level, lost out on a pair of $1.1 million electric buses that the federal stimulus program would have paid for when the “green technology” company making them went out of business. So now, the head of the Flint bus authority says they are trying to get a new hydrogen-powered bus that comes with a $2.5 million sticker price, more than eight times the cost of a traditional diesel bus. Ed Benning, general manager of Flint’s Mass Transportation Authority, said in an email that MTA has been discussing...
