43 George W. Romney January 1, 1963 January 22, 1969 Republican
44 William Milliken January 22, 1969 January 1, 1983 Republican
45 James Blanchard January 1, 1983 January 1, 1991 Democratic
46 John Engler January 1, 1991 January 1, 2003 Republican
47 Jennifer Granholm January 1, 2003 January 1, 2011 Democratic
48 Rick Snyder January 1, 2011 Incumbent Republican

Republican Governors: 4, Democratic Governors: 2

Wonder what this is all about? For the last 20+ years Michigan has already been living it's own recession. Started in the 90's...look up there, who was Governor? Oh, John Engler, a Republican. He screwed this state up. In fact, one of the biggest news stories after Granholm was elected Governor was no one could move into the Governors mansion here because the roof was in dire need of repair, had leaks all over the place, flooring had to be replace....look how long Engler was Governor. He sucked as a Governor. How he kept getting re-elected I don't know. Well, I can see how he won when Geoffry Fieger ran for Governor, Fieger treated it as a big game and not even Democratic voters took him serious.
Living in this state my whole life, I've seen where it's been good, and I've been living through it being awful. It is starting to turn around finally. Do I credit Rick Snyder? In part yes, he's not the far right wack job some others are. He is actually working to better the state and doesn't let himself get drawn into the partisan games. Not too long ago he told the GOP in Lansing here that he isn't going to play their partisan games by vetoing their attempt to rewriting the voter laws here in Michigan. He told them our laws are just fine and to leave them alone. Now, if Romney were more like Snyder, I may take him more serious, but so far, Romney has shown to be as partisan as Obama is. So, this voter is waiting on the final debate to be completely sure of where my vote will go.

btw...I know some of my left friends will scream at me, but yes, I did vote for Snyder. I haven't regretted it as I see Michigan is finally starting to turn around. I'm not saying he's perfect, but, at least he's up there actually working to make the state better rather than kissing the partisan ass.

My brother-in-law was a farmer and came from a long line of farmers. It's said that when the Democrats are in office, the farmers do good but not good when the Republicans are in.

It's also said that when the Republicans are in then the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Are there any truths to these? Damned if I know!!! There...that's my 2 cents worth.

Like I've said before, it really doesn't matter all that much which 'party' is voted into office when it comes to squeezing more money out of the citizens! Both parties have their own ways of doing it. After all, they've been practicing at it for decades. Hell, this article even shows both sides can actually work together sometimes!

The tipping point appears to be among women voters in a handful of key states. I actually heard last night that the battle is really in the Florida corridor cutting through the center of the state from Daytona to Orlando to Tampa.

I find it ironic that the women are the target and tonight's debate is up against game seven of the NLCS and theLions/Bears.

I find Romney to be for more palatable than Bush. I don't see things changing very much regardless of the election's outcome. The economy is going to be stagnet for a long time no matter what Add a polarized legislature with gridlock into the mix.

Are things better now than four years ago? Generally not. But things are stable and haven't gotten worse overall.
