Where's the Representation?

It's been a busy week for Mr. Rogers!

Immediately sharing his thoughts on Gen. McChrystal's Rolling Stone interview with MSNBC and the Press & Argus, Mr. Rogers intoned

“you can’t have military commanders out there working against the policy of presidents, even if they’re wrong. “That’s my job,” the Brighton Republican and Army veteran said

Now, you may have thought that Mr. Rogers' job was to represent his constituents in Washington.

Oh, you big silly!

In addition to working against the policies of the President of the United States of America, Mr. Rogers has many serious responsibilities in DeeCee.

For example, on Wednesday he co-hosted the first Capitol Hill Family Game Night to educate families on

“how to enjoy video games and online media in ways that are safer, healthier and more balanced.”

Don't worry -- Mr. Rogers is working on lots of other crucial issues, too:

* he wrote a letter to MSU basketball coach Tom Izzo imploring him to stay in Michigan

* he continues to run his cash-raising machine with a string of foodie fundraisers

* he voted against H.R. 5175, which would

prohibit foreign influence in Federal elections, to prohibit government contractors from making expenditures with respect to such elections, and to establish additional disclosure requirements with respect to spending in such elections

* last but not least, he voted against H.R. 4213, which extended unemployment benefits and provided tax relief for individuals and businesses.

Got all that?

Michigan has led the nation in unemployment since April 2006 (as of last month, we slipped to Number 2, behind Nevada). We've lost nearly 800,000 jobs since Mr. Rogers first went off to Washington.

Given Michigan's devastated economy, why does Mr. Rogers think it's more important to work against the President, fight government transparency, screw over the unemployed and keep video games safe for families?

The bad news: this is just more proof that Mike Rogers doesn't give a rat's patootie about MI-08.

The good news: you have a choice this year!

East Lansing educator Lance Enderle has filed to be the write-in candidate for the Democratic nomination in the August 3rd primary.

Write him in, and see the difference a REAL representative can make!

you know that democrat lawmakers wrote him letters too right? and whats wrong with a family game night? against family? and i love how you show how he voted against all those bills, when in reality it was the amendments that made more than half of congress vote against them. and...are you really going to blame all the jobs lost in this state, on him? ha pathetic seriously none of your posts have any substance. chances are you wont even allow this comment to be made, because you want the utmost control over what people can see and hear so that you can try to make yourself look better for blabbering on about nonsense.

I didn’t write this, but I’ll answer your weak charges. I’m not sure what you mean by, “you know that democrat lawmakers wrote him letters too right? “

There is nothing wrong with a Capitol Hill Family Game Night. In fact, I think it’s a great idea. The problem is it was held in Washington, and I don’t see how many of his constituents could attend. The problem with Rogers is I don’t even thing he lives in the district anymore. I’m sure he has an apartment for an address and the rare times he actually to the district, but he is more worried about raising money and criticizing the President than representing his constituents. The fact is a Rogers’s appearance in the district is very rare.

He did vote against the bills. No, I’m not going to blame him all the jobs lost in this state on him, but I am going to blame him for denying unemployment to the people who have lost jobs. Republicans have no problem blaming the Governor for the jobs lost in Michigan, and the fact is the federal government set the policy that led the lost jobs. Governors have very little control over the economy.

I will always allow people to read your nonsense and blabbering
