I'm not surprised Snyder wants to be a one termer. He pulled the short stick when it was decided who would go into state politics and stack the deck for Big Business.

Once this term is over... he won't need to be in public office. He and his big business counterparts will reap the benefits of these 4 years for YEARS TO COME.

That is why he doesn't give a [blank] who he rolls over during these years... the sovereignty of local governments, senior citizens, parents of school age kids, welfare benefiters... just who hasn't been affected adversely by his decisions? How could he possibly expect to be re-elected?

He doesn't plan on getting re-elected and never had plans to run again.

The Republican party will be left in a shambles when he is finished with this term. Everybody will be pissed off, and unless the state's prosperity does a complete turn around (which I doubt), there will be NO way that he, or any other Republican can get re-elected.

People said that when Emperor Engler's reign came to an end, and LO BEHOLD what we have now!!!

Michigan is a red state to the bone, the only reason it has titled (blue dog) blue was because of union representation, which is no longer relevant due to the outright assault recently on the unions.

Actually, he improved the business environment for small businesses much more than big businesses. A lot of big businesses will pay more without Granholm's fancy tax credit scheme.

If you are going to rip Snyder, at least try to be creative about it. The "he loves big evil corporations" slogan is very cookie-cutter and old-fashioned (think 1960's). You might as well cut and paste from a Democratic Party propaganda pamphlet. And it's inaccurate to boot. It's all about the small businesses (middle class people employing middle class people). And, believe me, they are very thankful that Snyder is in office.

In case Ya'll havn't looked lately the middle class is a dieing fast breed.

Way I read the tax cut to bussiness every body with a bussiness gets the cut. that means GM, Ford, Fiat, Dow, Gilroys, Shell, Exon Moble, Hartford, Jims lawn service all get the same cut. Small bussiness doesn't benifit over big bussiness at all.

Those who don't own the mine got the shaft. Retires under age 65, tax increase, workers who work for minium wage, earned income tax credit gone, and many more to those who do not earn much over proverty level wages. Did those elected officals vote for a pay cut?NO!!

He could have helped the middle class what was left of it and those earning less than middle class wages.

Why should the people of Michigan a no fault insurance state pay into a uninsured motorest fund for example?
Did he increase the milage deduction for those of us who drive our own car/truck for our work? NO!

I'll sing thank god and grey hound he's gone when the day comes.

Well, now you made me do it. I guess I'll just have to provide a link.

This article shows pretty clearly that the tax cut helps small businesses more. And it's from the Ann Arbor News, which is hardly a conservative newspaper: Michigan Business Tax's death was great for Meijer, right? Not quite

Again... if we are going to tear down politicians, lets at least do it based upon things that are true. I don't think that's too much too ask. Lets stick a fork in the "Snyder only cares about big business" talk.

My friend, the GOP is ALREADY in a shambles. It's making the Dems look like superheroes in comparison, and that's really saying something.

Not sure where you're getting that. You may have a rude awakening in 2012.
