  •  I am hoping we get some (4+ / 0-)

    cross over senior citizens that voted for him only to get slapped with pension taxes.

    I am keeping my fingers crossed that the debate goes well for Schauer, but Snyder has a way of answering questions by the "stay tuned" for future results.  I sort get the Baby Bush vibe when I listen to him.  I fear Snyder will push the idea that he is right in the middle of a rehab project, with demolition down and remodel around the corner.  If Schauer is asked what he would have done or would do now to take over, I fear there won't be an answer that satisfies enough people.  But the Schauer camp has to be hyper aware of that trap and is working a plan.

    We so badly need Mark Schauer in office to slam down that veto stamp on really bad legislation.

    •  I appreciate your concern (3+ / 0-)

      You have a good point.  One of the few things Snyder is reasonably good at is the vague, pie in the sky, look over there at the nice cloud, RNC carny pitch.    

      And I am concerned that Schauer has not yet established enough name recognition or profile in the State.  But he's a smart guy and Snyder has managed to tick off, what, seniors, union members and their families, many parents, environmentalists, most of Detroit, unemployed workers and their families...  I could probably think of more, but...

      We need to keep the pressure up/best/sh

    •  Snyder coasted (4+ / 0-)

      into office on the Repub wave of 2010 and his refusal to give specifics of his plans.

      The "tough nerd" shit is not going to float this time, IMHO. Voters didn't know who he was in 2010 because he refused to tell them. Now, after business tax cuts paid for by seniors and students, right to work, the emergency manager fiasco, failure to address crumbling roads, rape insurance, and the nation's 49th worst job creation, not to mention his pathetic inability to deal with the teabaggers in his caucus, everyone knows exactly who he is.

      •  Yes, I think the only group (0+ / 0-)

        he hasn't offended is the business crowd.  And maybe religious freaks that loved the restrictions placed on women.  His record is really pretty bad and will hopefully sink him.  I agree with you in that he got the job by not having a plan.  He was a complete unknown.

        I do hear a lot of unhappy people comment on the roads.  More money spent on tire, car repairs than what the extra taxes would have been.
