These must be republicans because every democrat in america will be more than happy to tell you obama fixed Detroit. Right? Oh, I get it, the debts must be racist, that’s it. Debt is a racist plan to make obama look bad. If debt wasn’t racist it would just go away. Oh my, I just realized that the unemployment rate must be racist too. Debt and the unemployment rate are a pair of republican racists out to make obama look bad. Why I bet that reality itself must be a racist, seeing as reality tends to be the opposite of what dems think anymore.

Detroit has nothing to worry about. We have just re-elected a Bolshevik to office in the White House, now all they have to do is ask him to float a loan like the solyndra loans and it will be paid for by the American taxpayer. Obama hasn’t picked a winner yet. Better yet, since its Detroit, nationalize the city and let the government workers fully fund their pensions and health benefits and the taxpayers will pay for that also.

The problems in Detroit have been caused by poor leadership in Detroit as well as lack of proper assistance from both Democratic and Republican Governors. The biggest problem has been the inability of Detroit to accept that it is no longer a major city. It is time to cut the physical size of Detroit down to something financially more manageable.

That they have not yet agree to the proposal from the state is of great concern. At the same time one can question why the one law firm was picked by the state over others. Was it intended as a financially payback by the Governor.

Detroit was once a great city and I believe it can once again be so with good leadership and the right assistance from others.
