Former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder Says He’ll Vote for Biden
I've already got my popcorn out and I'm ready for the comments.
Did you know that former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder is an "opinion contributor" for USA Today? Neither did I, until today. No pun intended.
Regardless, he's penned an interesting piece, saying that he will be one of the many Republican voters who will be casting their ballot for Democratic candidate Joe Biden this November.
He muses in his USA Today opinion piece about how he remembers being at the Republican National Convention on his 18th birthday as part of Gerald Ford's youth group.
I have remained a lifelong Republican and proudly announced Michigan’s support for Mitt Romney in 2012 from the front row of the Republican convention in Tampa.
I will continue to support and stand up for Republican policies and values, and support Republican candidates, but I will not support Donald Trump for reelection.
Snyder goes on in his opinion piece to talk about how Trump is a "bully."
A great leader treats people with respect even when they present different opinions. Without a variety of views and opinions, we would have no innovation or creativity in our nation. Being a bully and being strong are not the same thing.
He continues by saying that Trump has no "moral compass" and that he "ignores the truth."
At the end of Snyder's opinion piece, he says that even though he's voting for Joe Biden, "I am still a Republican who also will be publicly supporting Republican candidates at the local, state and federal level."
If only he'd had a moral compass during the Flint water crisis. *sigh*
