Let's discuss Gov. Rick Snyder- (R) Michigan

my facebook friends from Michigan seem HATE him, and his approval rating is less than 40%

from what I understand, Michigan's economy has improved greatly under him. in my opinion, his tax/budget plan was pretty fair. it could improved tho.

i'm not a big fan of his social policies, but his management of the budget and economy seem solid (for a neo con).

what's with all the hate? do y'all think he could be a legit. VP or P candidate?

Wiki

I just skimmed his latest budget proposal, looks like he is pandering to Ds to boost his approval rating.

Anti-Union legislation is a bitch.

He's a vast improvement over Jennifer Granholm. The state is doing much better economically since he took over. All of the hate is coming from the Union crowd who would never vote for him anyway.

I don't see him as a candidate for national office though. It just doesn't seem like his style.

Granholm was just terrible

what has he done regarding unions besides making Michigan a right to work state? anything aimed at public sector unions a la Scott Walker?

He is not a bad dude, and this is coming from a union attorney in Detroit. While I'm a little pissed he flipped on right to work, the unions made their own bed on it with the ballot initiative. He didn't push the issue at all, but when presented to him, he had to sign it. My only complaint would be he is a Dick DeVos waterboy. Oh, and he just sounds too ghey/nerdy to be President. It's not fair, but it's true. He is a great businessman and doesn't seem too whacked out on social issues.

I have family in MI who are fairly moderate and they can't stand the guy.

Not sure what he did exactly but just mentioning his name is enough to start a 10 minute tirade.

Sounds like the problem is the people.

He's alright, but not my favorite. He really has been pushing a lot for infrastructure spending.

probably the RTW thing was pretty big, although I'm really indifferent on the matter.

1/2 of all blacks in Michigan now live in cities where their elected officials are no longer in charge of public finances.
