Ted Nugent

Bankrupt Detroit ...

It's the Liberals' Fault!

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.

Sorry Ted, but Me thins it was The Cities Fault for not DIVERSIFING itself.. Getting other Industries Into Detroit while they had the Chance
Allowing GM to Control the city and Not allow Competition

GM Destoryed DETROIT and Sucked it dry and then Abandoned it..

GM was BAILED out, so why wasn't DeadTroit?

Properly Restored with a Few Billion and Some Decent Businessmen to lead the way? Detroit can Rise again, but a More Diviersified City.. Not Just the Motor City

And How come not Bailed out CHICAGOand the State of Illinois? The President Owes Chicago !

and how about DOUBLING SS? Savings that is..Co. Pension Plans Don't work, Union PlansDon't work.. DoubleSS it's been the only thing that Works! Of course, Wal Street Will Fight that...They can't Steal the $ from SS, can they?

The obama part doesn't make any sense? What do you call $17 trillion debt, with nothing to show for it? What do you call the downgrading of the country's credit rating during obama's watch?

You tell 'em, Ted. He's right. Liberals have ruined the country. All Obama cares about is getting people hooked on entitlements and securing 51% of the vote so dems can remain in power forever. Deficit be damned. Power is what motivates these greedy politicians. Divide and conquer is Obama's policy. He has divided the country more than any other president. On purpose. Detroit is just the beginning. The rest of the country will follow as long as tax and spend dems are in charge. Giving people handouts and telling them they are victims of society just perpetuates the problem. Obama is no more than a community agitator. I'm sick of him dividing along racial and economic lines. He should be a uniter, not a divider. Thanks, Ted. And, thank you for defending the 2nd Amendment. Our God-given right to defend ourselves, one of the many amendments that Obama hates.

This creep needs to get his facts straight. It is a REPUBLICAN governor, Rick Snyder, who appointed Detroit's Emergency City manager, Orr, who used the REPUBLICAN Romney Bain Capital model to screw the city.

He's correct, the unions that represent city workers are in league with the democrats. These city workers can retire at 50 and live half their lives supported by the taxpayers usually at 70-90% of their annual salary while revenues are declining. Simple economics, something democrats just don't understand.

Race baiting liberals who get mad when the republicans say something about obama. Say something about parasite unions, corrupt city council and mayors also liberals. So liberals killing off a city is nothing to them. But they throw there hands up and shout off stupid race baiting trash. Almost like the "boy who cried wolf" when it really happens no one is going to believe them. How about re starting the city and dig out the problems that piled up over the years and fix it.

I disagree. The decline of the auto industry is indeed Detroit's fault. The cozy relationship with the unions and the outrageously high retirement packages, bonuses and the like, have led to this. Right now, using every cent of revenue that the city takes in, they cannot even cover their retirement payouts, much less do anything about running the city. They were like Bell, California, but on a much grander scale. (If you need to look it up, the public officials from Bell are now in prison.)

Maybe it's time some of you should start getting informed and listening to the truth instead of flinging s*** like a bunch of monkeys.
