Video: Jennifer Granholm’s got a fee-vah and the only prescription is more Hopenchange

posted at 9:49 pm on September 6, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Examiner, stick with it until 2:20 or so, when she really gets going. It’s not quite Dean-oesque, but it’s close — close enough for magic. First comes the star turn at the convention; next, the audience for her show on Current will hit triple digits; and then, before you know it, she’ll have nailed that dream gig of having her very own weekend show on MSNBC between the endless marathon of “Lockup” and “To Catch a Predator” re-runs. Aim high, governor.

A friend on Twitter said her facial expressions here reminded her of a pro wrestler emoting during a pre-match interview. I agree. Watch it once with the sound on, then mute it, open this in a separate tab, and watch it again. Awesome.

Was she another yeller, like Strickland? I’ve found the louder someone speaks, the more likely they’re lying. When you speak softly, you can more easily feel what you’re saying. Harder to lie. Notice how measured and conversational Romney was. Dollars will get you donuts that Obama will use his campaign, preacher voice tonight.

Paul-Cincy on September 6, 2012 at 9:53 PM

OMG. Joe Biden’s been screamin’ up a storm, hasn’t he.

He just delivered his “Biden is alive, and General Motors is dead” line.

Oh, he’s loud.

Paul-Cincy on September 6, 2012 at 9:53 PM

Had to mute Biden. My ears won’t take it.

For what she helped do to Michigan, let’s hope her chastity belt rusts shut.

Now that we’ve changed govennors in Michigan (and Gov. Jenn left for Kalfornia), we in Michigan finally have hope.

I think I bought a condo and some Amway from her.

Yowza!!!

Ugh. Can’t have abortionpalooza without this horrible failed governor who is such a militant feminist her husband took her name. Walking disaster. Canadians who are embarrassed by giving the world Justin Bieber need to rethink their priorities.

I would say the same about Granholm’s show on Current TV, but neither I nor anyone else has ever watched it.

She looks like Honey Boo Boo all growed up.

ratherbskiing on September 6, 2012 at 10:03 PM

The auto industry was in shambles and had to be saved. But who was Governor of Michigan during the time it spiralled out of control…? Wait…it’ll come to me… HER. That’s right.

I still cannot believe this woman won RE-election in our state. We had to deal with her incompetence for EIGHT years.

Apparently, she has picked up a touch of southern accent by teaching in California…

I did exactly what you said, AP. I think Granholm was 5 seconds away from booking herself a cage match against Susana Martinez at Hell in a Cell.

OMG. Dean scream. What a kook. Um, Jen, GM did go bankrupt, but we (and non-union GM workers and suppliers) ended up paying for it. Apparently libs have never heard of structured bankruptcy. No, they have: They didn’t want one because it wouldn’t have favored the unions.

And actually if I’m in Michigan c. 2010 basking in the reek of utter failure that permeated the poor state after eight years of her policies, I’d rather be named “Dickwad.”

Paul-Cincy on September 6, 2012 at 10:11 PM

First off that is insane.

Secondly, I noticed that she was listing a lot of states that seemed to pick up jobs as soon as they finally sacked losers like her and instead decided to go with Republicans for once. It seems Obama’s best case is taking all the credit for improvements in states that went out of character and voted for guys like Corbett, Walker, Snyder, Kasich, Scott, and McConnell.

Philly on September 6, 2012 at 10:05 PM

Exactly right. Obama’s reign has been a one of men, not laws, of cronyism, of greasing palms. The airlines go bankrupt, and we still have an airline industry. Bailing out GM was the wrong thing to do, and now we learn it was Obama’s own decision. That explains it!

Jennifer Graham-cracker is only funny now because she’s no longer in power.

In a perfect world, this episode of mental instability, combined with her crappy track record as governor, should make her unelectable for life. Instead, the Dems will probably appoint her to succeed Debbie Blabbermouth Schlitz.

I could only make it to 30 seconds. One lie per second rate is my limit and she exceeded that during the 30 seconds I watched. If she were a firearm she’d be classified as a fully automatic liar and require an FFL to own.

AZfederalist on September 6, 2012 at 10:24 PM

This woman is positively VILE.

After 8 years of her ruinous leadership, she actually had the nerve to write a book claiming she was a job-creating, tax-cutting Governor???

Jesus wept. She stealth/forced unionized thousands of home daycare owners, and has bilked $30 million and counting from disabled children, funneling the booty to her butt-buddies in SEIU.

Then she create hundreds of new occupational licensing regulations, and stacked the boards with her cronies who own the trade schools so they could force out-of-state licensees to repeat their schooling.

She shutdown hundreds of small businesses, banned the construction of new power plants, and destroyed the State’s infrastructure with her incompetence.

Now I have to watch her fugly Canadian gob on every other TV station?

Give me cancer now lord.

PappyD61 on September 6, 2012 at 10:39 PM

Villaraigiosa, Granholm, Perdue, Castro, Obama. This conga line of left-wing executive incompetence is what the Democrat Party portrays as putting its best foot forward. The most empty suits in one place this side of the drycleaner.

fitzfong on September 6, 2012 at 10:43 PM

Granholm gave Michigan a preview of what Obama would do for the country. When the rest of the nation was recovering from the Clinton recession and 9/11 Michigan remained stagnant. Unemployment never really went down, and in fact it would have been higher if not for the fact that so many people left for greener pastures.

Whatever she may say about the auto industry now, as Governor she consistently said that Michigan had to end its reliance on the big three.

Democrats whine and moan about losing manufacturing jobs, all the while being opposed to manufacturing in the first place.

For eight years, we had to suffer through this clown as governor of our fine state of Michigan.

Minnfidel on September 7, 2012 at 1:12 AM

Hard to believe this woman was a governor. I’ve been reading her idiotic posts at Huffpo for awhile now, and the content is basically quick stupid screeds about the Kochs and other boogeymen.

I always knew Obama was bad news, but after he was elected, my first big uh oh was when he consulted this nitwit about jobs, instead of governors like Perry whose states were actually gaining jobs.

juliesa on September 7, 2012 at 1:12 AM
