“We refused to throw in the towel and do nothing. We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity, and three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way,” Obama said in his weekly address.

He didn't mean the GOVERNMENT of Detroit. He meant the biggest employers there. The government there has been known, to everyone, for years, to be nothing more than a huge pile of shit.

Local, Federal..what's the difference? One hand washes the other. A lot of cities file for bankruptcy. This one just happens to be to "home base" for a lot of old money. Old money that has since left town. Leaving it to..well..you know

He was clearly talking about the auto industry in general. Conservatives are always looking for ways to criticize the Prez, and almost always coming up short, so they turn to half-truths and outright lies. :)

You tell 'em Tea Party fake Hillbilly Jim! Yeah, it's all Obama's fault! He ruined the car industry there all those many many years ago...lol. I thought Republicans loved outsourcing? Free market and all!

Detroit has been run by democrats since 1961. You guys knew that, right?
You're more like the bearer of off topic who gives a shit factoids. Of course it had nothing to do with the outsourcing during Reagan administration? Oh, wait. It absolutely did! Viva la GM Mexico!

Do not forget how the Republican Governor has cut state funds to Detroit with the intention of causing this bankruptcy.

This is just a test to see if the American people will stand for corporate rule. The people of Detroit have had their votes taken away on local matters by the Governor. We as a people are being set up for being ruled like SURFS.

And yes Ronald Reagan had lots to do with this bankruptcy. It has taken 30 years for the true effects of his policies to take effect.
Blah Blah Blame

You just gotta laugh at the hypocrisy of how the people that complain about blaming W. Bush are constantly blaming Obama for every single non related that happens.

Ok, Einstein. Let's just outsource everything and become a 3rd world county.

Boy, the "surfs" are angry today. Anyway, dear obsessed stalker of mine, how many times are you going to change your username in this thread? Maybe you should go outside and get some sun on that sickly albino body of yours. It won't kill you.

Technically we are a 3rd world country. The only thing that keeps use from being what we think of as a true 3rd world country is that the dollar is the worlds reserve currency. That and our military.
