Foundations are credited with resurrecting the Pittsburgh's economy after the 1980s' collapse

Full story: Post-gazette.com

Kate Dewey arrived in Pittsburgh in 1980 from Washington, D.C., just in time to witness the region's longtime economic base begin to deteriorate as steelmakers and other corporate heavyweights were shuttering plants -- and in some cases, leaving town altogether.

Lies, lies. lies. Everyone knows the turn around of Pittsburgh was a direct result of the skills and ability of the Democratic party and their "share the wealth" concepts. Remember, no one else ever had a hand in the revitalization. No private business is good for anything. Democrats or nothing.

That's crap and you know it. From Obama down thru Onorato/Fitzgerald, Murphy and Ravenstahl they all have taken the credit for the complete turn around of the Pittsburgh area. They have held the area up as the model of government control and how things should be in a "comrade" state. The credit has been hijacked by the party of Democrats and they will not allow any private entity to succeed for very long. At this very moment Fitzgerald and the unions are attacking UPMC and the other non-profits are under attack as well.

Detroit, here we come.

Ah, the conservative principal of the "big lie;". tell a big enough lie often enough, and the ill informed and those indisposed to critical thinking (the Republican base) will soon mistake it for the truth!

By gawd, sonny, but you are truly entertaining... if not the least little bit truthful!

Sorry dude but the big lies are owned and used by the party of jackasses. The Great Society, Iran will never hold those hostages, Vietnam is necessary to stop the domino effect, I did not have sex with that woman, if I can't fix this economy in four years I don't deserve to be president, never let a crisis go to waste, I fell and can't testify about Benghazi, everything' Bush's fault, etc., etc.

And of course, Hope and Change, the biggest lie of all.

They all lie, but the really big lies belong to your progressive democrats.

Wow, first, you spew bullsh*t; and second, you don't think Dubya Dumazz's stupidity is relevant, but you repeatedly revisit the 1970s to flog Jimmy Carter for the action of foreign terrorists (while claiming Dumazz kept us safe... duh, what about 9-11?)!

And the American people backed Obama this past Nov. 6th, azzwipe, as your plutocrat got his dressage-loving azz whupped solidly, fool! I really thought you fools couldn't do worse than McCain-Palin, but you went to Willie and his Boy Wonder, who couldn't even win his own home state! Whose next? Ron Paul?

Good gawd, old man, but your Alheimer's is getting really bad lately!

And once again, you totally ignore the thread, the whole idea of the article and of course the actual history of the events. You are truly a progressive Democrat in the molds of Lenin ad Marx. Facts do not matter. What a waste of an education. None of your spew of hate and aggression changes the fact that the Democrats have taken the credit for any turn around in the Pittsburgh area. They give no other credit, it's just "kool aid drinkers" like yourself that can't see through the BS.

No, you ignore the topic, putz! Dubya Dumazz's disastrous foreign wars were't real? Tell that to the dead and injured. Those are facts... your foolish opinion that Democrats have taken unwarranted credit for the local economy's resurrection is just that, an OPINION, your view of the facts colored, no, distorted by your extreme, crippling conservatism! It is an opinion clearly biased by your political partisanship, putz!
