Where is the President?
Saying for the day: It is a political truth that it can't hurt a candidate to be seen with the President.
It used to be that on the off year election candidates for governor that were of the same party invited him to campaign with them.
It might only be for one day but pictures were taken and used over and over.
The implication being that since they were from the same party the state would get more help from Washington.
I have been watching the adds for governor in both Wisconsin and Michigan and I have yet to see the President in any Republican add.
Not only that but the Republican candidates don’t even say they are Republicans.
This says something about how President Bush is viewed.
If that wasn’t a good enough clue there is an add with the Republican candidate for governor in Michigan that shows the President and the candidate.
It says that you can’t tell the difference between the two and its run by the Democrats.
In the add the candidate morphs into the President and back again to himself.
The Democrats are so sure that the President is a liability that they want us to see the Republican and the President as being on the same bad team.
When Democrats run adds with the Republican President and the Republican candidate you know things have gotten weird.

Eino still has not heard from Homeland Security about the stone man.
A national magazine said that they had heard the government was developing a new device to move people from place to place. It seems that the project had a set back of some kind but was now going forward again. The article said a reporter was going to check out the location where the first experiments took place to try to find out if this is a true story.
Eino broke a small piece off the shoe of the stone man and sent it to a laboratory in Lansing where a friend of his works. There is no information back from that lab yet but he hopes there will be soon.

This morning Betty and I got the first two blogger cups ready to send when we realized we didn't have the address for our friends in Hull. So we packed them and they sit waiting to be addressed. Betty went to her birthday club for lunch. I waited for the prospective buyer to come and take some pictures. When she came home we dsicovered the gas station on the outside layout had collapsed. It could have been the wind or somebody might have thrown a snowball. In any case it has to come in for repairs. The prospective buyer came and took pictures. I hope that is a good sign. Well I need a breathing treatment.
