    as a Michigan resident, who has lived here my entire life, you clearly know nothing about our state, politically.

    As NMLib pointed out, in '06, another midterm year, we cleaned up.

    2010 was a bad year for us here, but it was a bad year for Dems everywhere.

    There's no reason to expect a Republican wave in 2014.  And while I maintain that this state isn't quite as blue as a lot of outsiders think, it's also not as Republican as you clearly think it is.

    The problem with you mentioning the rich Republican family here........well, first off, not sure if you're referring to the Princes or the DeVoses.  Not that it matters, since neither is terribly popular in Michigan.  Hell, Dick DeVos got his ass handed to him in 2006.  Outside of the Republican party, they, frankly, don't have the power over this state that you think they do.
