Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm Electrifies Convention with Auto Bailout Speech: VIDEO


Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm brought the DNC to its feet with a rousing speech fiercely critical of Mitt Romney which lauded Obama's bailout of the auto industry.

Yelled Granholm:

“When Mitt Romney did say, ‘Let Detroit go bankrupt,’ who took the wheel? Barack Obama! When America was losing 750,000 jobs per month, who gave us a lift? Barack Obama...We need to rev up our engines, in your car and on your ballot. The D is for ‘drive forward’; the R is for ‘reverse.’ In this election, we are driving forward, not back.”

  1. What a dynamo! When I see her on Current TV, she is always so professor like. She has been through hell and back.

  2. Damn! Now THAT was a speech!

    The most enthusiasm I saw at the RNC was like "meatloaf night" at the nursing home.

  4. She was yelling a lot, but, she was also on fire. One of the Top 5 of the DNC2012 and that's a compliment.

  5. Wow. I've always liked her, but didn't know she had that in her! I hate that she was born in Canada, which dead-ends her as far as politics in the US.

  13. Well done, but not supported by the facts. Also, weren't the 99%'ers fuming about the Wall St. bailout? If you opposed one bailout you opposed both. GM's US workforce is now down about 30% after five years, though they've added workers overseas. Honda now employs more US workers.

  14. GM might employ less, they have streamlined to meet the modern economy.

    Without Obama they would not exist anymore is the point.

    Honda employing more US workers is a bad thing how?

  15. Damn... I mean DAMN! She was amazing!!!

  16. Anon, that is entirely incorrect. The Wall Street bailout was opposed because those companies created a toxic environment for the average American, then misused the bailout money, making it far worse. The auto industry bailout prevented Detroit, and Michigan, from collapsing completely. To act like the two are the same only shows ignorance of both.

  17. Wow, she was on fire. Did she drink some Go Go Juice in Charlotte?

  18. Electrify? She came across as unbalanced and raving!
