I am so grateful that the Michigan Governor is standing up to support Governor Romney. As a Washington outsider and a capitalist that is attempting to make a difference in a financially strapped state. We need a President with the same type of vision and ability. The citizens of Michigan made their conservative views known by electing this Governor and Republicans will the right decision by nominating the right Real person as their candidate for President. Mitt Romney, not a facade of a person, Rick Santorum, who panders to various parts of the Republicans, and not the Real Party members.
