Please provide pictures of wife's chest as evidence, or it didn't happen. :)

Is it me or is he putting the traditional talking points (abortion, gay rights, tea parties) by the wayside? I mean I don't hear anything on it. I'd love to hear the guy say "who give a shit, that's not why I'm here" when these things come up.

I hope he wins, if he even does half of the stuff he talks about then there is a chance that I may have a job in Michigan in the next 8 years.

I have never seen Virg address any issues with anything of substance. It is always buzzword bingo aimed at exciting the dumb people. I can't see Virg beating anyone in a legitimate debate where real questions are asked. He won't answer the questions. Rick will.

Agreed. I'm sure he'll bring up his work on bringing the Auto Industry back to Lansing though....

He will be destroyed in the debates. The guy NEVER answers any question, he should goes on a sales pitch with broad answers.

Heck thats what his Victory speech was. He get the catch phrase "main street, not wall street" in no less than three times in one sentence, while trying to show hoe "connected" he was with "regular people" versus Snyder. And the last two are his quotes not mine.

Is anyone concerned about this:

They aren't whackos like other groups. They have 20 preserves or so they protect.

Holy shit. I couldn't finish this video. The whiny bitch mayor of Lansing has more catch phrases than there are letters in "Hope and Change". Its sad to the the dems concede this early in the race.

added in -s to stop the donkeys and elephants from appearing
ever think that the Dems voted for Snyder because they have no hope of winning, but can influence the enough to get a RINO elected?

I think Rick Snyder is the best Democrat in the race. Their is no longer a Republican running.

A Moderate Republican is a Democrat from yesteryear. A Democrat today needs to be relabled, Progressive Liberal, spin talk for socialist.
