Barack cares very much about Michigan. All of the major democratic contenders promised not to campaign or participate in MI because the democratic party leaders set our primary earlier than Democratic Party rules allowed. Our state leaders tried to take cuts in line because they wanted to be first, but it was an impossible situation because everyone wanted to be first and others threatened to move their primaries even further back into the previous year. The DNC had to take a stand or allow chaos. Does anyone really want to be fighting the primaries during Halloween or the 4th of July---the year BEFORE the elections? The republicans are ridiculous to try to use the democratic primary to their advantage. There are lots of Obama supporters in MI: half of the state according to polls. It's time for us to get involved. MI democratic party wanted more coverage for MI and they surely got it. It just wasn't the kind they had in mind. Now, it's time to get crackin'! Fired up and ready to go for Obama!

There's one way we can beat back such attacks--had we voted like the repugs--john edwards would pres candidate and obama veep for the next 8 years.
didn't happen. Edwards sided with barack against hillary.
she needs to be on the ticket, kids.

THANK-YOU, I KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT THERE ARE VOTERS IN MICHIGAN
THAT LOVE BARACK OBAMA, BECAUSE THEY KNOW WITHOUT HIM AS THE
NEW PRESIDENT, THINGS WILL ONLY GET WORSE!
THANK-YOU MICHIGAN, THANK-YOU AL GORE, THANK-YOU TO THE GOVERNOR,
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS COMING TOGETHER, MCCAIN IS IN SERIOUS
TROUBLE, AND THAT'S WITH A CAPITAL T.

THE GOP SHOULD NEVER MENTION THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, THEY HAVE
WRECKED THIS GREAT STATE BY OUTSOURCING JOBS!
FORECLOSURES ARE ON THE RISE, JOB LOSS, GAS PRICES, THE GOP SURE
HAS ALOT OF NERVE TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT OBAMA, THEY HAVE CAUSED
THIS STATE ALOT OF HARDSHIP!

What is insulting is that the GOP thinks people are stupid enough to bite on this ad. It sure looks like the Republicannots are going to lose big time to the Yes We Can crowd
