James J. Blanchard Living Library Of Michigan Political History | Governor John M. Enger (jjblivinglibrary.com)
I never cared much for his arrogant attitude. He belongs in the dustbin of history. His ilk won’t fly today.
dan murphy says
I disagreed with the Engler philosophy of governance prior to the “Granholm legacy”!!
Ed Haynor says
I can’t imagine anyone listening to John Engler for 2-hours-and-45-minutes. Certainly, I didn’t.
John Engler was the last great Michigan GOP political figure – whose property tax reform captivated the state’s citizenry.
Love him or hate him he knew how to draw votes from the Michigan electorate.
Dick Haefner says
The Michigan Republican Party has been adrift since Engler’s departure, Snyder notwithstanding. The result is the train wreck you see today. Yes he was a bruiser, but his brute force style of leadership got results that he was looking for.
John C Stewart says
Since John Engler’s win more than 25 years ago (1998),the Michigan Republicans have only won 2 Statewide elections for Governor and US Senate- that was Snyder-Calley in 2010 & 2014. NOT going to happen again unless the Repubs. nominate a moderately-conservative candidate. I served as State Rep. (2000-2006) and John Engler’s last 2 years were 2000-2002. INTELLECTUAL HONESTY !
