christ, what an asshole.
 
2014-08-16 10:25:41 AM  
Wow.
 
2014-08-16 10:53:10 AM  
Snyder appointed the city manager who caused intentional blackouts during a heat wave in Detroit last year to 'teach them a lesson'.
 
2014-08-16 11:28:54 AM  
Nope, Snyder failed at that as well.
There is simply no way to make Romney look like a regular guy.

Hell, he can't even pass for human.
 
2014-08-16 11:53:20 AM  
Done in one.

You'd half expect him to explain he had to put his Maserati on the car elevator to protect it.

His wife had a couple of Cadillacs on it already, so he couldn't.

Any pics of him riding an aide around so as not to get his Ferragamos wet?

poor thing, he probably had to stay on his yacht while the roof on his vacation home was being repaired. also, his car elevator is on back order.

Uh ... yeah, wow.

Wiley: Did any of the customers get any notice that the power would be cut?

Brown: We did start calling our customers prior to taking them down and asking them to turn off air conditioners, but they weren't responding as fast as we would like them to so we had to send them a strong message by turning the power off.

The 'message' has Judge Craig Strong fuming. Strong works at the Frank Murphy Hall of Justice, which was shut down on Monday after a prisoner knifed a Wayne County Sheriff's deputy to escape. The event started a man hunt that left many people in the downtown area stressed. Strong says,"We're in a building that's already on high alert after what happened on Monday, we don't need any more mistakes. If they we're going to do this they should have given us notice so we could plan around it."

How the fark is Rick Snyder still up in the polls?
 
2014-08-16 01:40:41 PM  
Snyder is like Scott Walker Two. "Right to Work," rape insurance, emergency managers (read: appointed dictators that have the right to break contracts with workers but not with banks, sell off city property, and basically ignore any law in the state), and dozens more basic democratic rights destroyed by his administration. Hard to believe anyone's surprised by this, other than the fact that he was caught being honest for once.

It's true that when your crappy electricity infrastructure reaches its limit, the network controller has to create localised power cuts to avoid a larger failure.

Way to do the PR, though.
 
2014-08-16 02:12:29 PM  
You mean that Mr. Snyder was forced to call his insurance adjuster, who then hired and paid for contractors to go out and repair the damage to million dollar lake house?

I can't imagine having to endure an ordeal like that.
 
2014-08-16 02:36:23 PM  
We have a vacation place and we had a limb come down on the roof and had water running through the whole place; those experiences are not pleasant ones and they had to take some trees down.

Huh, I had heard on good authority that "the trees are just the right height" here in Michigan
 
2014-08-16 02:37:02 PM  
This is not how you do empathy.
 
2014-08-16 02:38:32 PM  
farking state politics in Michigan. The only thing that would make hate it more would be if my wife left me to become a lobbyist for all these assholes.

Oops, hold on, I'm getting a text.

Without examining the content, I suspect that liberals are once again reacting to what may simply be slightly awkward phrasing, and possibly intentionally misconstruing Governor Snyder's statements.

I will now examine the article to determine the accuracy of my prediction.

Having been raised in Southwest Michigan and living just outside of Mississippi for the last 10 years, I can say: No. No it is not.

As would Wisconsin and Ohio. And Indiana.

There's a lot of states that elected derpy governors lately. Michigan is hardly alone.

Oh, I wasn't referring to PA's politics.

Alluding to his wealth by talking about his lake house is no where near Mittens level of elitism. Mitt still blatantly said he doesn't care about 47% of us.

nah, i think he just made himself look like an out-of-touch asshole, but i guess i'm just a glass-half-full kinda guy

Regular in what sense?  That he is programmed to eliminate bodily waste at 8:37 AM each day?

The optimist says the glass is half full. The pessimist says it is half empty. The opportunist drinks it while the first two argue.
 
2014-08-16 04:08:03 PM  
Yeah, Snyder is a gigantic asshole.  Keep in mind the lunatics he keeps putting in power are also the ones who stalk gay students of the University of Michigan and harass them because they're attracted to them as well.

Combined with the unfortunate fact that our gubernatorial elections take place the same years as mid-term elections, so democratic voter turnout isn't as high.

Fair point, but it's pretty tone-deaf to try to express sympathy for people who are having their homes and vehicles destroyed and lives disrupted by flooding by relaying some story about some storm damage to your million dollar lake house.

Michigan Republicans are quite the creature:  isolated, pompous, and fearful.  And incapable of coming anywhere near Southeastern Michigan because they think a line of black people will swarm upon them as soon as they get out of Howell.  Think of them as the shortest guy with the reddest truck with the biggest wheels ever, and you get the idea of what a swarmy sack of shiat Michigan Republicans are.

"The poor are getting too many handouts! Make things suck for the poor!"

"My fellow Americans, my new policies will ensure that things suck for the poor for the foreseeable future."

"Oh, no! Now things suck everywhere! How did this happen?"

"Ummmm... It's Obama's fault."

I thought that was Republicans EVERYWHERE. Just replace "Southeastern Michigan" with the name of the largest city in your state.

1. Snyder kindasucks.
2. The efms are terrible.

4. His comments are meh here. This is nothing.

Tone deaf and laughably out of touch with his constituents and yet still not quite in Rmoney's league?

Yeah, pretty fair assessment.

Snyder opposed rape insurance, among other crazy right wing nonsense.

The legislature then passed it again veto proof iirc.

Snyder: a vile, sinful freak, barely reognizable as a human being.  Likely wallowing in utter depravity at this very moment.

Also, there's also that guy you posted.
