Detroit councilwoman
to Obama: We voted for
you, now bail us out

WJBK-TV [Detroit, MI], by Staff

DETROIT -- The city of Detroit faces a major financial crisis and one member of city council thinks President Barack Obama should step in and help. City Council member JoAnn Watson said Tuesday he citizens support of Obama in last month´s election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city. (Click the video player to listen) "Our people in an overwhelming way supported the re-election of this president and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that," said Watson. "Of course, not just that, but why not?"

Comments:
She perfectly exemplifies why we are now in the disastrous economic condition we are in. This was going on long before 0bama was elected but now it is ramped up to the max because they all see him as their savior. They expect the taxpayers to bail them out when their wreckless, irresponsible behavior is the cause of their problems.

She obviously does not understand how this works. You voted for him, that was your duty to him. His duty to you is to be himself. If that includes bailing you out, then you owe him an additional debt of gratitude (and possibly support for some other agenda item you might otherwise oppose).

Well done, #3.

Also, #5, Obama will bail out blue States and union-intensive States. The rest can go scratch.

Remember his words, "We will punish our enemies and reward our friends"? He´ll bail out ANY city or district with a hand out and a majority Democrat voter registration.

But we´re toast anyway unless we rely on divine intervention. God is plenty cheesed off at America for tossing Him out of our lives and out of our public square. If He does decide to send us a rescuer or if He does decide to show us how to get out of Mordor, we are doomed, Gollums all.

Very typical Dem pol. So entrenched in the democrat political machine she doesn´t even know that her "qui pro quo" request is a violation of federal election law. This is how the idiot left thinks. Elections are not for public servants, they are for Santa Clause. The corolary to this is that those who voted against the winning (leftist) candidate should be punished for their vote. Also a violation of federal election law.

This disgusting belief system is why Wildfires in LA and Boulder recieve instantaneous disaster aid and equally horrendous wildfires in Texas recieve nothing.

Poster #3 you got that right and the Blue States know it. As an example that is why Californian keeps spending and chalking up debt. They are going to get to the verge of economic collapse then blackmail the rest of the country like Greece did to the EU. They will remind us that they are the worlds 5th largest economy and if they go under so will the rest of the nation.

I say screw´em. I´ll take my chances.

Every elected state office in Michigan is a Republican, the state Supreme Court is a four three conservative ratio, and both the Semite and House are controlled by Republicans. The reason for this is the blacks in Detroit are either to stupid or lazy or both to vote in off year elections.

Michigan is now going to attempt to become a right to work state….

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE)--which received more than $2.75 million in government funding in 2012--has produced and posted online a video specifically aimed at teenagers that promotes bondage and sadomasochism (BDSM) and proposes "rules" to follow when engaging in these activities. “People sometimes think that those who practice BDSM are emotionally scarred or were once abused—not true, it’s a total myth," the host of the video, Laci Green, informs its intended audience of teens. "BDSM relies upon and creates trust," she says. In a message published at the beginning of PPNNE´s 2012 annual report,

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Three Wm. Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center executives left their jobs after six deaths occurred that could´ve been prevented. Following a Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General report released in early February, members of an oversight committee asked VA officials tough questions Wednesday to get to the bottom of what happened at Columbia´s VA hospital. Dr. Robert Petzel, under secretary for health for the VA, admitted to Congressional representatives that there was a criminal investigation completed by the Inspector General´s Office at Dorn VA concerning the backlog of gastrointestinal cases from 2012.

When Republican Rep. Cory Gardner announced in May that he would not challenge Sen. Mark Udall, a Colorado Democrat running for re-election this year, it appeared as though Udall had dodged an electoral bullet. But Gardner has changed his mind. Reversing his earlier decision, Gardner, considered a rising star among House Republicans, will run for Senate, the Denver Post reported Wednesday. Ken Buck, a Republican district attorney who had announced he would seek his party´s nomination for the Senate seat, will instead switch races to vie for Gardner´s open House seat, according to the Greeley Tribune.

When Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wakes up in his home in Miami, all he has to do is look out the window to see the impact of the long-suffering economy on his neighborhood, where the median household income is $37,556. What he sees is driving the development of a new agenda to expand job creation, make college loans more fair, beat poverty and bring working class values to Washington. For sure, it will help his 2016 reelection effort. But, also for sure, if he chooses instead to run for the presidency, it fits that bill as well, giving him an

White House science czar Dr. John Holdren wasn’t in the mood to be contradicted on whether global warming was causing “extreme weather.” Holdren described climate scientists whose work contradicts the White House’s global warming claims as outside the “scientific mainstream.” Holdren was asked by Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions to cite scientific data that supported claims that droughts and other weather events were being made worse by global warming. Sessions then cited contradicting evidence from climate scientists, including former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer and University of Colorado climate scientist

Last week, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released video showing Battleground Texas operative Jennifer Langoria admitting that the group uses its voter registration activities to conduct data-mining operations. It collects people’s personal information off of the voter registration forms it gets them to fill out, which is against state law governing the behavior of voter registrars in the state. For a week, Democrat Wendy Davis has remained silent on the matter. The media in Texas have either clouded the issue or not asked her about it. Battleground Texas has defended the practice as legal.

President Obama on Wednesday defended his 2009 stimulus package and unveiled a new initiative that would provide grants for repairing the nation´s infrastructure. Speaking from the Union Depot in St. Paul, Minn., the president cited the station, which had been refurbished and improved thanks to TIGER grants from the stimulus, as an example of successful spending to improve infrastructure and create jobs. The president said the stimulus had “actually worked, despite what everybody claimed” and announced a competition for a new round of federal grants to fix the nation’s roads, bridges and transportation hubs.

But after watching this very solid defense of a guy who’s very unpopular with Paul’s target audience, I’ve gotta believe that Mitch the Knife’s “Rand for president!” ad has already been recorded, cut, and is just waiting to be rolled out at the appropriate moment. He’s gone beyond the call of establishment-ingratiating duty on this one. His point about McConnell not being Specter isn’t wrong, either. “McConnell has offended conservatives by stabbing Ted Cruz in the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

The former Massachusetts governor tweeted at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), saying it “is right” to veto the bill passed by the state legislature last week. Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it.

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner

On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden blamed “hatred” as the motivating force behind voter identification laws in states such as North Carolina, Alabama, and Texas. Biden wants new laws to block “former slave holding states in the south” from discrimination against blacks and other minorities. Biden, speaking at a reception at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., in celebration of African-American History Month, said that, "These guys never go away. Hatred never, never goes away.

Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism. To be fair, Nixon’s team of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were not in the same league as Obama’s, which includes not only his cabinet but most of the national media and much of Congress.
