Taj for Congress, Stabenow for Senate - serious candidates and two public servants worthy of your support. Senator Stabenow ( www.stabenowforsenate.com ) has done a fine job for the state. While in Congress, her opponent has sponsored "personhood" bills that express the same underlying sentiment that Akin expressed ( http://goo.gl/5Fekc ). He ran a racist Super Bowl ad that was called "very disturbing", "really, really dumb", "despicable", and the "most revolting ad". Michigan is better served by having Debbie Stabenow in the Senate. It will also be better served by sending Dr. Syed Taj ( http://www.tajforcongress.com ) to the House. Remember, when asked to respond to a candidate survey, Dr. Taj's opponent copied the same lame answer to two of the questions asked: (1)What made you decide to run? and (2) What issues do you see affecting your district? Dr. Taj wants to move the area, and the nation, forward. Let's let KB tend to the reindeer. And after winning their respective primaries, here is how they reacted, giving a window into their personalities: "I am humbled by the support that I received tonight and I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue my campaign in the great 11th Congressional District." - Dr. Syed Taj His opponent, KB, declared 'It Looks Like Mr. B is Going to Washington'. Hopefully, that's another Santa Claus gig; the guy and his deer need to eat. Taj for Congress, Stabenow for Senate

Mr. Taj. Although you seem like a good man, your ideology is the same as Stabenow, Obama, Reid and Pelosi. You want to spend your way out of Michigans economic mess when we need fiscal restraint. I will be voting for the Kerry Bentivolio because of this. If Kerry screws up.....he will be out also but we can not spend and spend.

Part of the difference is that Dr. Taj wants good government. KB wants no government (but don't touch his Medicare.) Dr. Taj wants to help move the 11th District, our state, and the nation, forward. Let's let KB tend to the reindeer. Taj for Congress, Stabenow for Senate
