Republican-Fail, Rick Snyder — November 13, 2013 at 2:55 pm

Progress Michigan launches “” website to reveal the truth about Rick Snyder’s record & politics


This is gonna be good

Our pals at Progress Michigan have launched a new website called The site will show the reality behind Rick Snyder’s failed policies as well as the reality behind his phony persona as a moderate nerd who’s just trying to do a “nerdy job”. The truth, as most of us know, is that Rick Snyder is a hard-right corporatist who has not only failed to produce jobs or revive Michigan’s lagging economy, but who has also trampled on the rights of workers and women, put kids and seniors in an even more precarious economic situation, and who is beholden to both his corporate benefactors as well as tea party extremists who now run the show in the state legislature.

Progress Michigan describes the new site in this way: will serve as a communications and organizational hub. It shows how the governor is on the side of corporations, the 1 percent and the well-connected at the expense of working families. The new website will also engage everyday Michiganders in conversation about the real-life impacts of Snyder’s bad policies and misplaced priorities.

Snyder Fails will take the governor to task over his supposed love of metrics and numbers. Featured on the site will be a “By the Numbers” section, which will track in simple math just how bad Snyder’s policies have been for Michiganders. will hold Snyder accountable through the media, produce original blog content and call out Snyder on his failed policies.

Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan, explains the rationale behind the new site:

Whenever Governor Snyder works against the best interests of Michigan’s middle-class and working families, we will be there – watching, responding and holding him accountable for his right-wing agenda. Snyder is pushing a false notion that Michigan is ‘the comeback state,’ but it’s time Snyder came back to reality. This much is clear: Snyder’s policies have failed.

Be sure to check out the site regularly, sign up for email notifications, and, whenever you’re tweeting about the One Term Nerd, use the hashtag #SnyderFails.

Yeah, this is going to be very, very good.
