The GOP hates when America gets better

Nicky D's Coney Island in Warren, Mich., across the street from a Chrysler truck plant, co-owner Diana Dedvuka has seen her bustling diner come back from a near-death experience.

"People are working. They're spending more money. Customers seem to be happier," she said.

In 2009, the restaurant struggled to stay open as Chrysler and GM teetered on the brink of collapse.

"Our business went down 40percent," says Dedvuka, the daughter of a retired auto worker. "Driving to work, you would see these big (auto) plants completely empty. It would give you chills."

Now customers who once feared losing their jobs are complaining about working too much overtime.

As Santorum and Gingrich scramble to overtake native son Willard in the Michigan primary, the state's economy appears to be climbing out of a deep, dark hole. mostly due to Barack Obama.
