Michigan governor; Jenny “No Jobs” Granholm is one of Obama’s list of ten possibilities for the open Supreme Court seat.
Just a few weeks ago, Ms. Granholm was red faced when it was discovered that she had been on-stage in a photo-op congratulating a businessman for securing a state tax credit of $9.1 billion dollars to create 765 jobs in Flint by converting an old chassis plant into renewable energy plant.
Flint resident Richard Short the recipient of the tax credit did 6 years in prison for embezzling from a Muskegon battery maker and was convicted of bank fraud.
Greg Main head of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation should have been fired over this boondoggle. He was the one that approved the tax credit and worked with Mr. Shot for months setting up the plan. A five minute check on Google would have alerted the agency of this man’s background.
In November of 2006, Michigan residents approved a proposal to prohibit discrimination or preferential treatment based on race or gender in the operation of public employment, public education or public contracting in the State. Ms. Granholm, against the will of the people is still fighting to over-turn this amendment going all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary, yet another waste of tax payer dollars.
Ms. Granholm has raised or tried to raise taxes in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 included in the 2007 increase was the largest tax increase in Michigan’s history.
New York should take a look at Michigan, because this is what they are going to look like after Governor David Paterson gets through with them.
I think Ms. Granholm would fit right in with the Obama regimes plan to do to this country what she has done to Michigan, tax us out of prosperity and destroy our jobs.
We definitely should not reward her with a life-time job after the destruction she has caused here.
