Time To Hit The Michigan Media Outlets.
The question- Why are they letting Rick Snyder's campaign handlers keep him in a vacuum. Why haven't they nailed him and make him give answers instead of the old repug slogans and tag lines. Cut taxes- What specific taxes?
Cut Spending- On what programs and projects?
Create jobs in Michigan- How?
Too many regulations- What do you want to deregulate?

It is time to ask the hard questions and demand that we get answers. If Rick Snyder cannot answer those questions then its the same old Republican bulls--t

Time to e-mail and call the media in Michigan and let them know they are not doing there job.
WJBK
WDIV
WXYZ
The Detroit Free Press
The Detroit News
Michigan Citizen
The Michigan Chronicle
And all other media entities that are in your local area. And ask your repug friends the same question. Bet they don't have an answer. :think: :think: :think:

1. You should know
It's the media job to ensure empty suit Republicans win elections, heck the media tried to help Dick DeVos four years ago but the problem was that the Amway Dick talked too much and people learn he didn't know what the hell he was talking about. Rick Snyder learned his lesson from that and you saw why he fought like hell to get out of debates and it's telling when he didn't want to debate for a Republican only crowd during the primaries it's not like the average Michigan Republican is a deep thinker.

Rick Snyder formula"success" has been avoiding debates while opting for town hall meetings with people who are already committed to vote for him, generic rhetoric, contradicting statements how can you attack a business tax when the guy running for Lt.Governor wrote the bill? And telling lies that you can proven to be lies,yet I feel if Virg Bernero say something a little off he would get crushed in the media.

As for asking for the Detroit News to question a Republican as long as Nolan Finely is heading up the News editorial board you gotta better chance of picking a gold nugget out of Godzilla's ass before anyone on the Detroit News editorial board asking Snyder a tough question between now and election night eve without being force to.

2. It's a good tactic
Snyder's ahead in the polls. Even some Dems are buying his "I'm a nerd" crap.

So what does he gain by answering questions, debating, getting into details?

He doesn't need answers. He just wants to win. And it looks like he will.

:hi:

3. I haven't ran into a Dem that's buying Snyder
Again Snyder learned a lesson from watching Dick DeVos four years ago, the less you talk and the more ads you air out you don't have to worry about losing much ground in the polls. But that plan could hurt Snyder well maybe not the kool-aid drinkers that are committed to voting for him, and people wonder why is he so scared to debate. Again if you saw his performance from last Sunday he's going try to run out the clock and hope Bernero message doesn't sink through people.

Hopefully if the city votes and other strong Democratic areas in Michigan go out the tough nerd will suffer the same fate as Dick DeVos.
