Default What do we know about Rick Snyder?

I saw his ad during the Super Bowl last night. I have never heard of him before, but I like his message so far. I have not researched his platform, but for now I can't argue with his business success and his qualifications at least on the surface. Anyone have any experience with or knowledge of him?

Left wingers and Obamanoids please refrain from replying. Your spineless blathering has no bearing on this thread.

I'm no fan of Gateway computers either, but they certainly have done well in a tough industry. I'm thinking this guy must have some serious skills to run a computer company against the likes of Dell, HP, and Compaq and survive. If he can do that, maybe he can lead this cesspool of a state out of the unemployed, welfare hell that it has become.

I like what I have read so far. I also like that he is not a politician. I just read that he picked up Ford's endorsement.

Here is his web site with his plans.

+1 for Rick

from rickformichigan.com re: MBT...

"The remedy is a flat corporate tax of 6%. A flat corporate income tax of 6%, with a reasonable exclusion for small businesses..."

"Replacing the MBT with a fair corporate income tax is a simple solution, but one that career politicians do not have the will not to implement. Rick Snyder knows that citizens and businesses create jobs, government doesn't."
