Detroit is a “Conservative Utopia”???
It is truly a sad thing to think that some people rely on MSNBC for their “news”. After hearing some of the ridiculous stuff spewed by a few liberal family members, I am pretty sure they are avid viewers.
MSNBC is a disgrace.
Over the weekend, Ed Schultz, host of “The ED Show” on MSNBC had the following to say:
“Detroit, Michigan used to be, really, a symbol of industrial strength and manufacturing in this country, but thanks to a lot of Republican policies, the city is now filing for bankruptcy…”
Yes, he really did say that. Don’t believe me? Watch the first 2 minutes of this for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAAzDbPumhA&feature=player_embedded&t=31 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAAzDbPumhA&feature=player_embedded
Then the moron goes on to say:
“…earlier this year, (Governor) Snyder appointed emergency city manager, Kevyn Orr, who has taken over Detroit’s finances. This, bottom line here, is an unelected official who began selling off public assets and slashing public services. Detroit has just 1/3rd of its ambulances in operation. The average emergency response time for Police in this city is 58 minutes. And when you have horrible public services, no one wants to live in the city, which means less tax revenue to fix all of the problems and the needs of the public. It is a very vicious cycle. It’s the Republican way, and Snyder’s emergency city manager is to blame.”
Let us examine what Stupid, sorry, Ed, is trying to pawn off on his viewers. Democrats have been in charge of Detroit since 1961, when the City’s last republican mayor lost his reelection campaign. Since then, the city has had Democrat mayors and Democrat policies. “Earlier this year” (ie: at most, less than 8 months ago), an emergency city manager was put in place by the Republican Governor of the state, and since he was unable to fix 52 years of Democrat destruction in 8 months, it is the Republican’s fault!
What on God’s green earth is this moron smoking? How does this idiot have his own television show? How stupid do you have to be to believe the crap coming out of this man’s mouth?
