Gutless, ineffective governor refuses to take actual stand on weekend marriages

by: Eric B.

Wed Mar 26, 2014 at 14:39:29 PM EDT

By now, you're all aware that the Court of Appeals extended the stay on last week's federal court ruling overturning our same sex marriage ban. That will give Michigan's finest legal mind more time to campaign on the public's dime, which is awesome for him.

Today comes word that our benevolent overlord Rick Michigan, a man to whom no issue is soft enough that he won't dodge taking a position on it, says that marriages performed over the weekend are legal marriages, but they just don't matter because the federal appeals court stayed the ruling of Judge Friedman. In other words, he decided to take a position of not taking a position. That's awesome for him.

Coward & Crook
You know, as strident as I can come across at times, I generally not a fan of petty name-calling of politicians, not because the criticism is wrong, but because it is often so unsophisticated - Go to Mark Schauer's facebook on any given day to see what I mean when Snyder is mentioned.

But, this man is a coward and a crook in every sense of the words.  This man is the governor of the ninth most populous state in the nation, a state for all its faults that is known for its resilience and toughness, and he says his personal opinion is "irrelevant"?  Really?  

He's done the same thing on Right to Mooch, abortion, and other equality issues that have come before him.  This man is not morally competent fit to lead this state, and he has the emotional intelligence of a toddler.  Of all the annoying things about him, this is the very worst.  

His continued insistence to not take accountability for his actions is disgusting whatever the issue.  This honestly makes me angry.  He must have beena piece of work to raise, because you can tell at this point that this evasion is a part of his personality from the jump.  This is a game to him, and Michigan (Republican, Democrat and otheerwise) is tired of playing it.
