Tag: Gary Peters
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
Add "Wikipedia Contributing Editor" to the list of things I do that I don't get paid for. It started around mid-November of last year, with me noticing that a certain biographical page really needed to be updated with recent events, which I initially did anonymously (before realizing that I might as well create an account if I'm going to be doing this regularly). Of course, I'm now at the point where there's just under three dozen Wikipedia articles on my watchlist (which is steadily expanding), and the pages for Michigan gubernatorial election, 2014 and United States Senate election in Michigan, 2014 currently sit in the "top eight" on the most frequently visited pages that show up every time I open a new tab in my Google Chrome browser (right now at positions #6 and #7, respectively). I'm also doing the heavy lifting for a major restructuring of the United States House of Representatives elections in Michigan, 2014 article.
And go figure that, in the process of researching for a project that's only tangentially related, I learned a little something yesterday about yet another unnecessary snag created by the recent federal shutdown.

Jeez Mike, you sure talk a good game when the camera is on but, your vote says you're lying.
More mealy-mouthed enabling excuses below.

Terri Lyn Land, the presumed Michigan GOP offering for US Senate in 2014 has just seen four GOP congressmen in lockstep with her opponent on an issue of critical importance.
As posited by Scales (a thoughtful and accurate analysis) in his comment:
"Benishek, Camp, Rogers, and Upton just endorsed Gary Peters for US Senate!"Which is essentially true.
On matters of amounts, levels of funding, and minor issues like renaming parks for your friends agreement across the aisle might not be such a big thing. However in this issue of surrendering Principle and giving the worst president in the history of this nation a football spiking win and subsequent destruction of our healthcare?
It must be intentional. They mean it. They agree with it. They want it, and so does Gary Peters. The similarity of thought is amazing.
I would be interested in Terri's thoughts on their support of her opponent.
Senator Harry Reid and Co-Leader Chuck Schumer are considering a vote on legislation to blindly increase the federal debt limit without any spending reforms or cuts to begin to alleviate the massive debt burden Washington has created. Gary Peters has been a big spender throughout his time in Washington. In fact, when Gary Peters was sworn into office in 2009, the national debt was $10.6 trillion. Today our debt is an eye-popping $16.7 trillion.

Unfortunately, I live in the district controlled by globalist turd, Gary Peters. Apparently, this steaming pile of excrement is running for the senate.
Last night while watching the Tigers clinch the Central Division, for the third year in a row, I saw this anti-Peters ad and had to share it.

Peters is the guy the Dems will be presenting as their choice for US Senate.
This ad mocks Peters Washington record, and abuses the pure Michigan campaign slightly.
Whats not to love?
As we reach yet another debt ceiling, Gary Peters writes the "turn around" specialist-in-chief...
Rep. Gary Peters wrote President Barack Obama on Friday, calling on him to create a Detroit Interagency Task Force to help the Motor City rebound from its record-setting bankruptcy filing.
If this is Lon Johnson's frilliant idea for publicity, he just turned off the rest of the state.

An interesting piece happened to turn up on Roll Call regarding the number of former SoS entering U.S. Senate races.
"We may have decent name ID, but it's weak brand ID. That was something I discovered when I ran," Grayson continued. "Despite the higher profile, it's not like it's a natural pivot into the next statewide race. And I think sometimes that puts us in a bit of a tough spot, because there's this perception that maybe we're stronger candidates than we really are."
So, one has to ask, exactly what has Terri Lynn Land done other than hold a ho-hum title? I mean besides running an abject failure 2010 campaign with this twice failed anti-2A dope that split the Party just enough to allow Rick Michigan's nose under the tent. Did a 2014 Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land lead a charge against Obamacare expansion in Michigan, known as Snydercaid? Nope. If you believe so, please, provide a link showing anywhere she did. It's not like Terri, and her hubby don't have the coin and didn't have the time to bird dog the Nerd bus crisscrossing the state when JenniRick embarked on his Tour de Harassment. Bottom line. Where the Hell is Terri Lynn Land?!?!
Continued below the fold.
