Todd Harsic = not a Democrat
No, did you miss it?

Mary Alice Williams (democrat for decades) & Democratic State Representative Michael Sak are quoted.

Harsic ... no party affiliation stated in article.

No one else I see quoted. Case closed.

With all the evidence piling up against you, I guess it is time for you to go home. Case closed.

Unless you can find something to make your case....yawn

Here are some more to chew on:

http://www.wzzm13.com/news/news_arti...?storyid=83298

Transit millage increase in 2007 approved, the city of GR buying 100% of its electrical power through Consumers Energy's Green Generation program, more LEED Certified projects per capita in the Grand Rapids area than anywhere in the country. Sounds like a trend to me.

Sorry pal, obviously you have a hard time on the comprehension front. Once again I'll ask ... what republicans were quoted in the article?

Shouldn't be too difficult.

While you're continuing to quibble over one article in one media outlet (where at least one person was non-partisan), here's another article for people to read (from the Republican Party) about the state of the party in West Michigan:

PrideSource: Election results have Republicans nationwide asking, "Who are we?" And Michigan is no different

Don't feel obligated to respond actinic, as you're not really the audience for this anyway.

Actually, I think that GR is still incredibly conservative. Even though a Dem won, the Democratic and Republican parties are more conservative. Today's Democrats are yesterday's moderate Republicans.

If you look at many of Obama's preliminary cabinet choices, they are very moderate Democrats.
