No Amway Guy in 2010

(! - promoted by Eric B.)

Via e-mail:

After considerable thought, prayer and consultation with Betsy and our family, I have concluded that my ability to impact the future of Michigan will be more significant at this time from outside government, instead of inside. So to allow me to do what I have always done best, that is to create jobs and opportunity in the private sector, I will not be a candidate for Governor in 2010.

This has been an especially difficult decision since so many of you have been encouraging of me, both during my prior campaign, but also since the 2006 election. Your encouragement and friendship have been tremendous gifts to me.

Hurray! (4.00 / 1)
No more DeVos to kick around.

Well... (4.00 / 2)
[emerging from deep lurk] ... guess he can go back to his B-Ball games, flying around on the family fleet of aircraft, lounging on one of their yachts, ripping off distributors, spending time in court; you know, the stuff he really likes to do.

Rest assured the servers at Solon Street will continue to hum along just the same storing and collecting more and more data on Dick (with new software too).  

Believe it or not, some of the best material was never used in 2006 (held intentionally for round two), but should the Amway Prince decide to go elsewhere, anywhere, in public office, WE WILL BE READY.

Thanks to all you Mich Libers from 2006, you did it. Now back to the matters at hand Dick's brother in-law and the continuing Big 3 crisis.

PS Bless you Gov, we need you (the country needs you) now more than ever.

I'm Pete Hoekstra and I approve this message (4.00 / 2)


Translation (4.00 / 1)
"Since it is apparent that my voice sounds like nails on the chalk board to you people and the possibility of me putting the final nail in the coffin of the Michigan Republican Party would make the Big Giant Head smile, I have decided to step aside and continue to own the Michigan Republican Party and run it like a good plantation owner should."
