“The same folks that asked us to throw in the towel on Michigan six years ago,
are now asking for your vote,” President Obama told the large Motorcity crowd.

“When you step into that voting booth, you are making not just making a choice about candidates and parties, but making about two different visions of what America’s is about And it boils down to a simple question: who is on your side, whose going to fight for you.”

President Obama told the crowd policies initiated by Republicans in U.S. House, along with State executive, legislative and judicial offices nationwide are built upon failed strategy of initialing cuts while failing to replace necessary revenue that results in hurting working families.

“The worst idea they (Republicans) got is this same economic theory that they keep going after, that we know undermines their claim,” President Obama stated. 

“More tax breaks for folks at the top. Less investment in education. Looser rules on banks and credit card companies. And you know what, we tried those things and it did not work.”

“My opponent said she would not have voted, she would not have supported the auto industry (bailout),” Peters stated.

“If as a voter, I find out a candidate for the U.S. Senate would not have supported the number one industry in our state, that disqualifies her as a candidate.”

“Now make no mistake, the road to the Governor’s office runs right though Detroit,” Schauer rightfully acknowledged.” 

“I remember when I started this campaign seventeen months ago, not many of you knew who I was. But today, we are tied in the polls. And we know when Democrats vote, we win”
