GOP presidential hopeful and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush defended Gov. Rick Snyder (R-MI) against criticism over his handling of the Flint water crisis on Sunday, arguing instead that the blame should go to the fact that regulations are too complex.
“We’ve created this complex, no responsibility regulatory system, where the federal government, the state government, a regional government, local and county governments are all pointing fingers at one another.” He proposed simply having a “21st century system of rules: Whenever you see a problem, it should become public, there should be transparency instead of trying to cover it up.”
He then praised Synder for having “taken responsibility” and for “rolling up his sleeves and trying to deal with it.” Bush said he should not resign, as he “needs to do what he’s doing, which is to accept responsibility and began to solve the problem,” adding that Snyder has “been a great governor for Michigan.”
horsefeathers yourself, jeb. pretty much everybody knows whose fault it is; it's the state government's fault and the fault of the emergency manager who was appointed by the state government. nobody is pointing fingers at the federal government because they had nothing to do with this. and people kept trying to bring the problem to the attention of the state officials, who kept denying that there was anything wrong with the water.
what a complete dick.
