Gov. Rick Snyder found himself in an unusual position today – preaching to the choir.
The governor, who has taken much heat for proposals to reform the business tax code and build a new international bridge, was being the good foot soldier for the Romney-Ryan ticket in Saginaw today, knocking on what campaign officials say was the 1 millionth door for the campaign in Michigan.
Amid flashing cameras, an elderly gentleman opened the door, wearing a Romney-Ryan campaign button on his sweater vest.
Campaign officials swear it was not a staged event and in fact was the second door the governor knocked in Saginaw. At the first door, there was no answer.
True, a homeowner wearing a Romney-Ryan button does a whiff of staginess to it. But it could have been worse. The guy could have been wearing an Obama-Biden button. Now, that might have been awkward for the photo-op.
