    Michigan Messenger » Protesters expected as ex-President Bush visits one of Michigan’s poorest cities

    Former President George W. Bush is expected to make his first major post-presidency speech this evening in Benton Harbor, one of Michigan’s poorest cities.

    Bush’s visit is sponsored by the Economic Development Club of Southwest Michigan which was founded by Louis Upton, the co-founder of the locally-headquartered Whirlpool Corp. and grandfather of longtime local Republican U.S. Rep. Fred Upton.

    The Whirlpool Corp. and Congressman Upton are backers of a controversial economic development project that involves privatizing part of Benton Harbor’s public lakefront.


    This project — Harbor Shores, a luxury housing and commercial development centered around a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course atop part of the city’s Lake Michigan dunes — is being closely watched as a precedent that could endanger the legal status of all public land.

    FOX News reports that members of the group WarCriminalsWatch.orgis planning to protest Bush’s visit as part of a national day of protest against U.S. torture.

    You mean one company , Whirlpool, sticking around and trying to do some good in the community, instead of succumbing to being taxed out of the state?
