Who's More Powerful?

Governor Granholm appears to be doing the right thing in getting rid of Detroit's embarrassing mayor.

However a county judge is considering whether or not to prevent her from doing so and will reach his decision on Tuesday.

Who runs this state? The governor or a county judge?

Just how powerful are we going to allow our judges to get?

Why don't we just do away with the state legislature and governor and let the judges run the whole show? They seem to already think they do.

Attention Judge Ziolkowski! Please do the right thing and say that this is beyond your authority. It IS beyond your authority and judicial recognition of the limits of their power is long overdue.

Overall I give Jennifer Granholm poor marks as a governor, but I will acknowledge when she is doing something right, and in this case she is.

are you kidding? Judges in California are pulling us Californians around by our noses and nobody seems to care around here!

Sure..we voted against same sex marriage and, suddenly, liberal judges decided they didn't like that and deemed gay marriage FINE! There are tons of petitions going around and they're getting big numbers of signatures..think it'll help? Not with OUR courts!!

good luck in Michigan...this stuff is hard to hear. This is America..

isn't it?

What if Granholm just IGNORED the judge and acted according to the law ANYWAY? What if someone in power actually TOOK A STAND? What if someone in government actually had some COURAGE?

What if?

Granholm should simply remove him from office, cite her authority under the (state constitution) law, and rebuke the judge for interfering in the Governor's executive prerogatives.

And stick to her guns.

I ain't holding my breath.

This is like that Judge Giddings in lansing always sticking hi nose in where it does not belong.
Hopefully, she will tell this judge the facts of life if he says no, but like Benning, I ain't holding my breath, either.
This charade must end.
