Obama's Getting Economic Advice From Jennifer Granholm

Later today, in Lake Worth, Florida, Senator Barack Obama is holding a jobs summit , with four democrat governors and others — including, prominently, Governor Jennifer Granholm from Michigan.

Perhaps, only those of us in Michigan can find the twisted humor in such an invitation. After all, we’re still waiting for Governor Granholm’s economic and jobs plan she promised us years ago, while factory after factory is closing up around us. Remember — Michigan’s been in a one state recession for five years.

Senator Obama: Inviting Jennifer Granholm to offer economic advice at a jobs summit is like inviting the president of RJ Reynolds to offer health advice at a summit on lung cancer. If this is the counsel you seek and take, then America better stand up and take notice.
