"I REFUSED TO LET DETROIT GO BANKRUPT!" - BARACK OBAMA


Detroit was once a thriving, bustling, prosperous city.

They did this to themselves - under the stewardship of the Democrat Party over the last 5 decades.

Just 4 years ago, people in Detroit were gleefully standing in lines to get their "Obama-cash" and "Obama-phones" from Obama's "stash". See how easy it is? they must have thought. Remember how happy they were? Obama! Obama! O-ba-ma! WHEEEEEEE! Free stuff!

And now Detroit is bankrupt.

Obama vowed he wouldn't let this happen. Like a good leftist he'd simply "REFUSE" to let it happen. Liberals always think it's just that easy. Ideology is the answer - and taxpayer subsidies of course.

Now Obama, with the help of his sycophants in the media, advanced the narrative that the Republican candidate for the presidency in 2012, Mitt Romney, had said to 'just let Detroit go bankrupt!?

Remember? It was a LIE!

Like so many myths propagated by the left (a la Saul Alinsky) it was repeated over and over to the point that people STILL repeat it ad nauseum no matter how many times it is debunked. If you talk to the average liberal today, he or she will STILL claim Romney said to "just let Detroit go bankrupt". To just let the auto industry there go under.

FACT: Mitt Romney looked at the GM and Chrysler meltdown and suggested a "structured reorganization of the companies" through legal bankrupty strategies and described how this could be done with private investment and some governmental assistance.

PERIOD!

How many hours I wasted with liberals who refused to admit the truth or even read the very sources they provided to support their argument but actuall proved the opposite.
It's 1 of 3 things:

a) They're total ideologues and dont care about facts.
2) They're simply clueless.
3) Cognitive dissonance - their brains cannot process evidence and facts that contradict what they believe.

But Obama did tell one truth. he sais if I voted for Mitt Romney Detroit would go bankrupt. Well, I did vote for Romney and Detroit has indeed gone bankrupt!

Imagine - the largest municipality in history has now gone into bankruptcy despite the president declaring that he refused to let that happen. Like a true liberal, he doesn't really care. His life is far far away from the reality of cities like Detroit comfortablly, nestled in a privileged nest of luxury and gracious living while he wails against "the rich" and pretends he stands for the "little people".

Don't these snobby detached self-righteous know-it-all "progressive" types (who have never accomplished anything themselves in the real world) who point their fingers at US make you want to puke?

Mitt Romney was not my first choice for president during the campaign. I have many issues with him. however -Romney is not a left-wing radical with a smug all-knowing totalitarian bent and prospects for cities like Detroit, prospects for the manufacturing/industrial sectors of this country, prospects for the economy, the health industry, the country in general would be infinitely better had he been elected.

Oh, well - like your mama said. "Be careful what you wish for."

You can fleece the producers just so long before the makers flee the takers.

Detroit got what it wanted. Who's next?

Flexibility. As he said, he has more now that he doesn't need their votes.

Very true. What's sad is there are so many people who are satisfied with the toys and chump change they get and they don't care if does things like "amend" ObamaCare to give breaks to those dastardly "big business" pals by delaying the mandate for them in order to cull favor (and contributions) for the 2014 midterms.

Ditto (coming soon) for all those unions who are finally understanding what is in ObamaCare.

Just rile up the villagers with fake issues like George Zimmerman and racism (a la Saul Alinsky) and they'll fall for it every time.

But fear not!

Help is on the way.
