Ted Nugent

Bankrupt Detroit ...

It's the Liberals' Fault!

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.

Listen up, Ted Nugent. Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said that the fall of Detroit began 60 years ago. Do you claim to have more information about the state than he?

Blaming our president for all the woes of the current day is a stunningly ignorant assertion. Where was your loud mouth when we had a financial breakdown under the Bush administration? Also 911, the worst attack on our country to date. No reasonable man could say Bush "kept us safe" economically or physically.

Where are the conservative plans? They have been successful at taking from the middle class and the poor, who do the essential work that keeps our country going. Singers and guitar players are a dime a dozen. Not an essential job by any means. Most people in our country work much harder and longer hours for less compensation than you do. They do it every day.

Your ilk seems to coast on blaming others rather than taking accountability. Filibuster, accuse, incite, spread misleading (at best) propaganda and finding ways to get power is how their time may be spent. Certainly not legislating, as no policy to improve the situation in places like Detroit have come from them in years.

The Neo-Cons look for more ways to take from the individual citizen, like raising interest on student loans. Screw the little guy who is trying to get ahead...yeah, that's the ticket.

How are you able to blame "liberals" for everything? If that Was true, it would mean your party is completely ineffective. Explain yourself.
