A Busy Saturday
For area Democrats, it was a smorgasbord of political events on Saturday afternoon, a visit from U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow and a town hall meeting to discuss the Downing Street Minutes.
Our Senator who knows the Republicans are painting a large bullseye on her back as she prepares to run for re-election for a second term next year, stuck mainly to domestic issues, noting the progress she has still managed to make on a number of issues despite a Republican dominated Congress.
The DSM town hall meeting managed to capture some of the regional overflow from the Stabenow gathering and pulled an interesting variety of folks from a four county area in Mid-Michigan. After watching a video that summarized the Conyers basement hearings on the Downing Street Memo, folks shared their thoughts about the shaky state of the union and agreed more needed to be done to change our nation.
