DON'T FORGET TO "LIKE" BEE-OTCH OF THE DAY ON FACEBOOK!
Name: Rick Snyder
Occupation: failed CEO
Last Seen: Ann Arbor, MI
Bee-otched For: getting a headstart
When Rick Snyder ran for governor in 2010, his first ads aired during the Super Bowl. His ads aired long before anybody else's.
Now, with 13 months before the 2014 elections, the Nerd is making sure he cements his spot in the Michigan White House. His first ads are expected to air today, telling potential voters that he's not going to allow Michigan to be 50th place like it was under George W. Bu - er, Jennifer Granholm.
Although he hasn't officially announced his candidacy yet, it's expected that Snyder will indeed run for the Republican ticket. So far, the sole competitor for Snyder is ex-congressman Mark Schauer. In early polls, results are mixed depending on who you talk to. Then again, the election's not for a little more than 13 months, so things are being left to gestate to either perfection or disaster.
But the Democrats are indeed calling foul, since Snyder is close allies with elitists such as the Devoses and is practically in their pockets. During his first term as governor, Snyder has taken over struggling towns and booting out elected leaders, killed unions and forced Michigan into being a right-to-work state. His policies will cause families to further struggle and go to work in a shop that's anything but safe. Not to mention that his answer to fixing Michigan's forever-hurting roads is to raise gas taxes, even though at times, Michigan has the highest gas prices in the nation.
Folks, it's time to piss off the Devoses and the Kochs. Michigan needs a new governor, not a dictator. It sucks that the wealthy always win while the working poor and below are left to suffer. If people want Snyder to win so badly, it's because they're too stupid to care for the hard worker whose pensions are up in the air because Snyder only cares about the 1%. Yeah, I know, he wants to fix Detroit. But, that's their problem, not mine or ours.
Can't we just have the damn election tomorrow so we can be done already? :/
