Ted Nugent

Bankrupt Detroit ...

It's the Liberals' Fault!

EXCLUSIVE

0719_ted_nugent_article_tmz
Motor City Madman and die hard conservative rock legend Ted Nugent is "shattered but not at all surprised" that his beloved Detroit has filed for bankruptcy -- telling TMZ, the liberals have been sabotaging the city for decades.

You'll recall, the City of Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection Thursday ... the largest municipal bankruptcy case in U.S. history ... and Nugent is utterly devastated.

He tells us, "Liberal democrats took hold of the greatest, most productive city on earth and turned it into a bloodsucker excuse-making hell. Liberals seem to think that what Mugabe did to destroy the breadbasket of Africa in Zimbabwe is somehow a desirable model."

He might be on to something ... considering Detroit's last Republican mayor left office in 1962, but the fact is it's a much more complicated issue than simply liberals vs. conservatives (for example, the decline of the American auto industry wasn't exactly Detroit's fault).

Nugent adds, "If allowed to continue, our President will do the same to the whole country. Heartbreaking and tragic."

Yeah, the Obama part doesn't make any sense.

HE'S RIGHT! Obama inherited part of the mess left over from previous presidents and Congress...and then he proceeded to make it worse. He is a disgrace to the office of the Presidency, and I am ashamed and embarrassed that the morons in this country re-elected him. Even though liberals don't think so, there IS more to someone being President than their stance on abortion and gay marriage (which he claimed to still be against 6 months before the election in 2012). Nothing makes me more angry than self-declared "liberals" who support Obama just because he supports gay marriage, with complete disregard to every other issue.

It has nothing to do with NAFTA (North American Free Trade Act) that send the automakers to Canada and Mexico. Nothing to do with the housing collapse. Doesn't count that half the population left.
Ted....not the smartest tea bag in the box.

Nugent is Correct. I was born and raised in Detroit. Liberals and Unions Destroyed that city. They had Riots in 1967. Anyone who grew up in Detroit and went to Detroit schools GOT OUT!!!
If you are white, you stay out of Detroit. The Racist Blacks Do not want you there. YES I SAID RACIST!!! If you go there, you will know what I mean. They burn the Houses down for Cash, (look up Devils Night). Nugent Knows because he Lived there. You idiots do NOT!! I sell real Estate there and around Detroit Metro. I also Love how some of these Posts call Nugent a Racist and then call him Names???? I also Thought Obama was not going to Let Detroit go bankrupt??? He said the Same about GM, Gave them Money and they went into BK anyway. Obama has done nothing for Detroit or this country. Look at all the scandals!!! There are 7 of them going on that are being looked into. Benghazi, IRS, Fast and Furious, NSA, Phone Tapping of CBS reporter and Fox News Reporter and his Parent, Just to name a few. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Except the auto stuff isn't hardly at all what made all of Detroit. Part of it was the city requiring them to force better union perks, while the rest of it was city spending and cutting the good stuff while padding their own pockets. 250,000 people left Detroit in the last 10 years. Many left because of crime and others left for jobs. The city did NOTHING to revitalize anything. They kept spending on themselves while they refused to give any tax incentives for new businesses. You can ignore facts. The two entrenched Democrat metropolises are in shambles (Detroit) or on the way there (Chicago). You can't argue with the facts sitting there in front of your face. I'm sure some will try but they'll sound quite stupid.

BTW, irony of ironies perhaps but California, headed by a Republican Governor was treading water. Now that a Democrat was elected - it's sinking faster than the Titanic. While the Dems entrenched there kept trying to pin stuff on Arnold, turns out - his vetoes and stances are probably what kept it up so long. Now, the entire state is starting to cut services, parks are going into disrepair right along with the roads and they are trying to hike taxes up to 2/3rds of peoples incomes. There's a reason the rich left California.

Nugent is absolutely correct. Never forget, a city, state AND country GETS what it votes for. Perhaps this will teach all of us a listen.
