ICYMI: One Gutless Nerd walks back heady talk of equal rights

by: Eric B.

Mon Jun 02, 2014 at 11:16:20 AM EDT

Anyone want to remember the headlines our benevolent overlord received last week after saying we should expand Eliot-Larsen? Right, late last week after the Kool Kidz were all driving home after spending three days of posting social media selfies from Mackinac Island, he expanded on those comments, with the word, "Psych."

NON-ENDORSEMENT: The island was buzzing Thursday after Gov. Rick Snyder said he did not believe in discrimination and would like to see lawmakers look at updating Michigan's civil rights law to include protections for gay residents.

But the first-term Republican couched his comments later that night by making clear he wasn't endorsing the effort just yet.

Brave, courageous leaders take bold stands in pursuit of doing right. Cravens waffle on the important issues of the day.

Is anyone surprised by this?
I'm not.  I might be a little disappointed, but not surprised.  It is, after all, completely consistent with his position on marriage equality.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

The next someone asks, "why are educated young people fleeing Michigan?"
Someone should bring up the legislature's caveman agenda and Snyder's cowardice in the face of it.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

Did anyone
really think he was NOT talking out his ass on this one? The teabaggers would never allow it anyway--they're already pissed at Snyder over Medicaid expansion.

It's a game with him.
He was trying to fool the low information voters again.  He made the declaration up at Mackinac where there was a lot of press and coverage and now he's backing out where there isn't as much press.  I would think the voters will realize that he's not a moderate this time in spite of this nonsense.
