One thing that can’t be said about Gov. Rick Snyder is that he’s ducking tough issues. When he ran for office he promised change and reform. Like it or not, no one who has been paying attention can claim he hasn’t delivered on that promise.
It’s an irony of politics that so many voters say they want change, but when real change occurs it is always contentious. Most voters also say they want leaders who say “damn the torpedoes,” and do what they believe should be done. Snyder has clearly been doing just that. We’ll have to wait until 2014 to see if it ultimately pays off for him.
