funny how they never mention the taxpayers when democrats talk about saving anything. They make it sound like it came out of their pockets, and they always take the credit for it. Drives me a little crazy.

Actually she made it look like it came out of Obama's pocket, .personally. They are packaging him as their savior, as though he personally is saving them. More and more they treat him as their god. Likely a lot of our money has actually gone into his pockets.

Jennifer Granholm was Michigan governor from 2003-2011. During that time, the state experienced major economic decline, an unemployment level higher than the national average, and population loss. She was replaced by Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican elected in 2010. Michigan has since begun to see its greatest level of economic development in a decade. No one misses her.

Of course, failed economic policies weren't any kind of dealbreaker for a speaking slot at the DNC; in fact, one might say they were a requirement. And all's the better that her delivery is in the style of Howard...
