Barack Obama, our next President

failed under obamas presidency The left would have us believe that having Democrats in charge of the city for so long had nothing to do with where it is today. But they reality is, they’ve got to own their piece of blame. Detroit certainly hasn’t been a bastion of conservative policy, that’s for sure.

On the other hand, Republicans should be aware that Detroit’s decline has been ongoing for quite a while, and there were definitely some mayors with R’s by their name who were in on the game. And economic forces shaped Detroit far more than they’d like to admit.

But ultimately what we see today is the left furiously spinning about Detroit (for example, see the book “Detroit: A Biography”) and the right trying to use it as a poster child for everything they hate. Yet on the right I can’t help but observe a particularly mean streak in the commentary, one that’s positively gleeful about Detroit’s demise. It’s as if, not content with letting the results speak for themselves about what happened under Democratic rule, the right seems determined to humiliate Detroit, reveling in its pain. It’s schadenfreude on steroids.

Let me highlight this. First Kurt Schlichter says that “Conservatives Should Point and Laugh As Detroit Dies.”

The agonizing death of Detroit is cause for celebration. It’s the first of the liberal-run big cities and states to fall, and we should welcome its collapse with glee.

Yeah, liberals, eventually you do run out of other people’s money.

The blue state model is a terminal disease, and Detroit is its poster child. Only this is one telethon where we should pledge that we won’t pay a single dime to keep the progressive party going a single minute longer.

Detroit represents the epitome of the blue state, Democrat machine liberalism that Barack Obama represents. Well, not one damn cent for Barry’s Kids.

Don’t hold back, tell us how you really feel. John Fund at the National Review is nowhere near vicious, but he does paint a target on Detroit’s art, basically arguing that the city should be forced to sell off its assets to satisfy creditors:

What no one wants to do, apparently, is sell the city’s assets. The city has largely unused parks and waterfront property that could be opened to economic development. The Detroit Historical Museum has a collection of 62 vehicles, including an 1870 Phaeton carriage and John Dodge’s 1919 coupe, that is worth millions. But the biggest sacred cow is the Detroit Institute of Art (DIA), one of the nation’s oldest and most valuable art museums. It has pieces by Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol, and Rembrandt. The Institute also owns William Randolph Hearst’s armor collection and the original puppet from the children’s TV show Howdy Doody.

The Detroit Free Press asked New York and Michigan art dealers to evaluate just a few of the 60,000 items in the Institute’s collection. The experts said the 38 pieces they looked over would fetch a minimum of $2.5 billion on the market, with each of several pieces worth $100 million or more. That would go a long way toward relieving the city’s long-term debt burden of $17 billion.

Let me get this straight. Instead of Detroit being $17 billion in debt, let’s sell off everything left that makes Detroit viable and end up still $14.5 billion in debt and still bankrupt.(Though only a few items were evaluated, they were clearly the handful of most valuable ones. Howdy Doody ain’t Van Gogh). Oh, yeah, that will help – if your definition of help is bailing out banks who loaned money to a city everyone has known is a basket case for many, many years. If those banks expected the art to be sold, they should have made the city pledge it as collateral.

Wonder if Obama's father abandoning both him and his mother has anything to do with his lying disorder and resentment - and the fact his father was black and his mother was white drives his deep desire to create racial division.

Very complex man with complicated issues, this president.

In 2008, an NBC/WSJ poll showed 70% of whites and 64% of blacks felt race relations were "very good".
Nothing changed except a new administration who encouraged the grievance industry to rear its ugly head.

Obama Approval Rating Drops Among Blacks
A recent NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll shows Black approval of President Obama dipped to 78 percent following George Zimmerman’s murder acquittal.“It’s a perceptual shift, a big-time shift in how Black people are perceiving Obama when it comes to being responsive to the needs of our community,” said Dr. Johnny Williams, professor of sociology at Trinity College, in Hartford, Connecticut. The president’s high praise for New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly, who runs the nation’s biggest stop-and-frisk operation, as a potential new chief of Homeland Security “speaks to where Obama is, morally,” said Williams.“How are you going to put somebody who, basically, does the same thing that George Zimmerman did to Trayvon Martin, in charge of Homeland Security?”
OBAMAS LACK OF ATTENTION TO A BLACK AGENDA MIGHT NOT BOTHER THE SUBURBAN LIBERALS BUT WHO FEELS IT KNOWS IT BLACKS WERE USED!
CNN's, Don Lemon, who is black, agreed with Bill O'Reilly on air that blacks are not addressing the root problems in the black community.

Other blacks, including Juan Williams, also adamantly agrees. Williams wrote a book about it years ago beating O'Reilly to the punch but only now getting the recognition for writing it and now having a bigger microphone to talk about it.

If anything good comes of this administration's desperate attempt to keep us divided and the Al Sharptons' grievance industry doing everything possible to help them, it's in their being exposed and even black liberals saying they've had enough.

From the Decision (which you obviously haven't bothered to read):

SUCH IS NOT THE CASE HERE. THE FACT OF A BENEFICIARY'S RESIDENCE

The Agriculture Department has paid millions of dollars to dead farmers over the last several years, according to an audit released Monday.
The Government Accountability Office estimated in a new report that agencies within the department may have paid more than $30 million to thousands of deceased recipients between 2008 and 2012. The findings come as Congress tries to pass a new farm bill, and could stir concerns among conservatives that the government's many subsidy programs are not being carefully managed.

Part of the cost is the processing of penny-ante claims for office visits, costs incurred by clerks in the doctor's office and clerks at the insurance company or government. Carry a larger deductible, eliminate small claims, and costs might be significantly reduced.
Not charging $100 for a toothbrush,$30 for one Tylenol and $40 for one gauze pad might also significantly reduce costs.

A one-night hospital stay shouldn't require insurance companies to pay thousands of dollars and the patient to pay the remainder also in the thousands of dollars.

Tests and procedures are off the charts. One expects to pay for services received from specialists in fields of expertise, but the medical profession has become more like crooked car mechanics charging you for parts and labor you didn't need rather than honest and caring people who have "a calling" to that profession.
