Michigan U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra says we need parental rights amendment
Here's a prescription for Michigan's future from Newt Gingrich

They were evasive, vague and cheap. Republicans Mike Cox and Rick Snyder and Democrat Virg Bernero fired off below-the-belt shots, apparently believing that a state ruined by bickering and bitter partisanship is hungry for more of the same. Democrat Andy Dillon and Republicans Mike Bouchard and Pete Hoekstra struck a more gentlemanly tone, but took the safest route possible on every question.

I like Finley's honesty.

Michigan's not only suffering from a lack of jobs, but a lack of leadership.
