Take that, vote fraudsters!

by: Eric B.

Sun Dec 30, 2012 at 12:04:34 PM EST

Our data-driven benevolent overlord strikes again!

Voters won't have to check a box affirming that they're U.S. citizens when they go to vote.

But there will be a sentence on ballot applications affirming U.S. citizenship that every voter will have to sign before they get a ballot.

After vetoing similar legislation in July, Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill late Friday that requires the citizenship affirmation.

In two short weeks, benevolent overlord Rick Michigan heaped up all his credibility for basically everything, doused in gasoline, and tossed onto it a lit match.

I think
I think this is the most maddening thing about how he governs.  I watched this week's rerun of Tim's show, and the media panel that they had did their typical insider baseball BS in labeling him "pramatic."  I don't see how changing positions - or at least seeming to - dependent upon which way the wind is blowing is "pragmatic."

Here's the deal:
Snyder is a liar. He's not a politician, so his lies sound different than the ones we are used to hearing, but the bottom line is he lies. He hasn't changed positions, or acted pragmatically, he's just a former CEO who is used to not having his BS questioned by underlings. He says one thing, does another, and that's that. He's the boss, so he does what he wants. Like it or lump it. Anyone who failed to notice that this guy was a weasel in 2010 wasn't paying enough attention.
