    Who are the NERD fund donors Mr Snyder?

    Moderates Cannot Be Trusted

    Bottom line, don't expect a squishy Republican to have your back.

    Michigan House and Senate Republicans have found this out.  Between vetoing some of the new voter rules, ignoring legislative will with the bridge, and making it clear he would not be signing on to RTW once it appeared to have broader support, Snyder has been as squishy as a Halloween pumpkin left on the porch till April. Add to this an almost eager demeanor (promoting it early 2011) on the (Obamacare) healthcare exchange and its about as rotten too.

    He makes the arguments for team Obama.  He's made the argument for Team Granholm.

    So what happens when Rick gets primaried in 2014?

    It may not be like the RINO loser Charlie Christ who lost in 2010 to Marco Rubio, and has since shown his true colors:

    Former Republican Florida governor Charlie Crist, writing in Sunday's Tampa Bay Times, endorsed President Obama, calling him "the right leader for our state and the nation."

    Cough .. Cough .. GAG... OMG Charlie, this is NOT Venezuela!

    And now he will be a speaker at the Democratic Convention next week in Charlotte. Continuing:

    Crist lost a bid for the Senate two years ago to tea party favorite Marco Rubio in a bitter battle that divided the state's Republican Party. The moderate Republican ran as an independent in the general election after polls showed him losing the GOP primary to Rubio.  

    In his endorsement, Crist continued to criticize what he says is a Republican Party "pitched so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that they've proven incapable of governing for the people."

    See what happens when you steal candy from a baby?

    NO, I don't expect Snyder to go all out and pick up his toys and go home like Crist.  But the pandering to the left, and trying to appease them on THEIR issues is unproductive and teaches no lessons.  Shaking the non conservative elements out of our party can only help when insisting OUR message is correct.  We cannot endure the acceptance of platforms crafted by the other team.

    A primary MUST happen in 2014.  

    Recall that Snyder got 36% of the vote in the 2010 primary, during a year when the Dem crossover into Republican territory was at its peak.  Its time to stop the Crist-crossing of political moderation.  

    If we cannot stand for our message, and cannot stand by it, we cannot teach it.

    HAVE TO GO too.  Those clowns named above are making Kings over us, and shredding the Constitution.

    Not so sure why Benishek didn't rollover in bed with the East coast Establishment this time, but Dan didn't.

    Comrades Levin, and Stabenow, votes?  So shocked.

    Thank you for voting NO, Rep. Amash!

    on Boortz that Crist works for the largest law firm in Florida and they are big Obama supporters and are also big Eric Holder fans.  They lobby against tort reform in DC.  I don't think they are going to let Charlie endorse Romney AND keep his job.

    . . . then we sure as hell want to be extra careful with someone who's effectively an unknown, such as a potential supreme court nominee.

    The key to the puzzle before the vote was Jennirick not wanting to enter the debates. I told as many people as would listen this guy was nothing but a Commie Lib Progressive from the Communard community of Ann Arbor. This guy was a non starter for me from the begining. The only thing these idiots understand is to be tossed high enough that they land hard.
    But the one thing that continues to piss me off is the absolute refusal of the party elites to have closed primaries. That is how we got McAmnesty, Jennirick Snyholm, now the darling of the Republican party establishment Pete Hoekstra to go against the Heat Miser. How many times do we need to get the crap kicked out of those moderate/liberals before somebody gets the message.
    I think that the Turd needs to go and we shouldn't wait till 2014. He needs to go now.Anybody else that wants to hold on to the moderate line or the CLP point of view needs to go. Anybody out there that has the stones to primary the Turd?????

    I'm finally glad that other people are beginning to see through that evil Mr. Rogers' facade.

    I know that I've said it before, but it bears worth mentioning again.

    Prying eyes (cough, cough, Christine) lurk on this site for story ideas to fill her blog.

    I'd recommend taking this conversation elsewhere for the time being.
