McCain and Detroit; McCain and The Rest of Us

Email Email Print

Detroit News columnist Daniel Howes provides a sesne of how Michiganders react to John McCain’s embrace of global warming-inspired regulatory mandates and raised CAFE standards:

During a campaign stop in Waterford Township, Republican presidential contender John McCain said: “I’m here to look you in the eye and tell you that we are a nation that doesn’t leave our people behind.”

Really? I don’t know where to start.

Here’s the Arizona senator instrumental in turning GOP attitudes in Washington against Detroit’s automakers, who allied himself with that close friend of Motown — Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. — to push for sharp increases in federal fuel economy rules. They lost that battle, but last month won a war that will cost cash-strapped automakers billions and billions.

Who, exactly, in that crowd is worried about leaving behind Michigan, which has more unemployed citizens (370,000) than Iowa sent to its caucuses (334,000) last week?
