Arizona and Michigan Choose Obama in Republican Primary

Today is the big day.  Arizona and Michigan go to the polls to pick their respective choices for the Republican nominee.  And the big winner is…

…President Obama.

Mitt Romney has done an excellent job letting the voters of both states know who he is – a super-rich, out of touch, elitist who just can’t seem to fake this whole communing with the common man thing.  He doesn’t know NASCAR racing, but hey, he has some good friends who own NASCAR racing teams.  He reiterated his belief that the American auto industry – based in Detroit – should have been left to go bankrupt with no intervention, but hey, his wife’s two cars are both Cadillacs.  [Mitt’s cars also are American, though it’s unclear if that only happened recently when he started running for president and knew it would look bad to have foreign cars…you know, like the undocumented foreign workers the company he hired to have his domestic work done were asked to leave because “I can’t have undocumented aliens; I’m running for President.”]

Then there is Rick Santorum.  Well, Jennifer Granholm, Michigan’s former Governor, says it all with:

“The version of Republicanism you are offering is a gift to Democrats looking for recruits. The anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-Latino, anti-Muslim, anti-Europe (particularly the French and the Greeks), anti-labor, anti-poor, anti-99 percent and now anti-college graduate rhetoric enables us to eagerly welcome your castoffs into the Democratic Party — where inclusivity is celebrated and their contributions are welcome.”

So no matter which GOP candidate officially wins tonight in the Republican primary, the big winner is President Obama.  Thanks Mitt and Rick (and those other two guys) – you let people know exactly who you are.  And that got President Obama a bunch of new votes in November.
