NAM President John Engler appeared this weekend on the Detroit CBS affiliate’s interview program, “Michigan Matters.” Last week, host Carol Cain’s guest was Governor Jennifer Granholm.
To the non-Michiganders around here, it seems strange that Engler remains so prominently mentioned in the state’s media, and a favorite game is trying to get him to say bad things about the current administration. Doesn’t happen…
Cain provides highlights of the interview in her Free Press column today. Besides politics, the discussion turned to energy:
The future of nuclear energy: DTE CEO “Tony Earley is right when he talks about the need for more nuclear power. We’re excited about that. It’s clean.
“Frankly, the Bush administration has fallen short when it comes to this.”
On the 2008 presidential race: “We (NAM) don’t endorse candidates. But we have shared our thoughts on manufacturing with candidates in both parties.
“We need a strong energy strategy for our nation.”
DTE is DTE Energy.
