    Michigan voters made a big boo-boo.
    Romney is a succesful businessman making money from corporate raiding – has no clue about what middle America needs. He’ll give billions to his rich corporate pals in tax breaks telling us that it’ll trickel down to us at the bottom.

    Just like Govenor Snyder – but all I see trickling down is used toilet paper with large brown skid marks!

    Santorum wants to revamp ‘entitlemenmt’ programs – SOCIAL SECURITY – he also has no clue what people in their 60’s need to survive on. Not everyone makes big bucks and can put away money in 401k’s – alot of folks are just struggling to get buy.
