The World’s 19 Most Disappointing Leaders

Don’t Blame Me, I’m Just The Governor Award
Rick Snyder, Governor of Michigan

Snyder and his team sparked national outrage after an attempt at cost-savings left the impoverished city of Flint, Mich. with a lead-tainted water supply that is being blamed for illness and brain damage, especially among its youngest residents. Called to testify before Congress, Snyder, who touted his competence in his gubernatorial campaign, labeled the experience the “most humbling” of his life—then attempted to shift blame. He described it as a “failure of government” and blasted the Environmental Protection Agency for its “dumb and dangerous” rules on allowable amounts of lead in water systems.

First on the list and in some pretty awful company!

I'll say it again - the people of Michigan voted him in. The pain will continue until they vote better.

Even if they wise up and vote in Democrats, the problems won't disappear the day after the election. But, at least the state will start moving in the proper direction.
