Snyder's Talk Talk

Rick Snyder, May 11, 2011.

“Today's not the right date yet,” Snyder told the business group of his unwillingness to do national media interviews on Michigan's “comeback.” Michigan must accomplish a good portion of its turn-around before it can toot its own horn, he suggested.

“There is too much talk in this world … there is not the opportunity for Michigan to talk yet,” the governor said. “We have to first get our act together, get it done and then spread the Michigan message. My goal is to have Michigan viewed as the action state. We will get on the map (then).”

“As you create those jobs, the very best thing you can do to help out, particularly for those in public service, is to talk about the jobs you’re creating,” Snyder said at Michigan State University

“Even if it’s one job, be proud of it, talk about it. If you take 12,000 entities and you say one job, that’s a lot of jobs. And then you start saying it’s two jobs or three jobs” he said. “That is the backbone of the reinvention of Michigan.”

Damn, that was quick. Someone alert the media that we have accomplished a "good portion" of our turn-around starting... now!

This has to be some kind of record.
