Today in, your execution leaves a lot to be desired

Benevolent overlord Rick Michigan is not so sure that diluting the Pure Michigan tourism logo to pimp Right to Work was the right thing to do.

LANSING -- Gov. Rick Snyder criticized an ad Monday that the Michigan Economic Development Corp. placed in the Wall Street Journal touting Michigan's passage of controversial right-to-work legislation above the Pure Michigan logo as a way to lure business to the state.

It was the first time Snyder directly addressed the furor over the full-page Jan. 8 ad. He gave a mild critique when asked whether it was a mistake.

"I would not have been emphasizing one issue the way it was emphasized in that ad," Snyder said after a luncheon speech at the Lansing Center. "I would have preferred it had had a much broader definition" of what makes Michigan a desirable place to locate a business, Snyder said.

They've been doing this for two years, he says. In other words, they took a successful brand name identified with the intangible goods of Michigan's natural resources and applied it to the mundane stuff of making money. Babbit Nation wins again.

Good cop-bad cop (4.00 / 1)
That's all this is.  They do his dirty work, and then he offers some mild admonishments.  That's how he's been doing it for two years, now.
