Ed Schultz on Why Detroit Went Bankrupt: The City Became a ‘Conservative Utopia’
http://www.theblaze.com ^ | july 22, 2013 | Jason Howerton

Posted on 07/22/2013 5:17:14 PM PDT by lowbridge

Agreeing with fellow MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry, Ed Schultz claimed that Detroit had filed for bankruptcy because the city had a government that was just too small. On Saturday, Schultz argued “Republican policies” led Detroit to become a “conservative utopia.”

Harris-Perry last week said what is happening in Detroit occurs “when government is small enough to drown in your bathtub.”

“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,” Schultz said over the weekend.

Yep. I agree with Shultz.

Detroit is as far right wing as Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Pantsy Nelosi, and Hairy Reed. And oh yes, Barack Obama too...

I sure wish those Lefties like Paul and Cruz would quit disagreeing with how things are going in Detroit.

The Democrats make their money looting public treasuries. They are going to say anything to stay out of jail and keep the public treasury door open so they can continue looting it.

Times like this I wish we could split the timeline and have one branch handed lock stock and barrel over to the libtards to run amock and then check in with it in 10 years.

Who am I kidding they would probably lie about why they failed if given full control over everything...

After libs pour billions down ratholes, they always declare that they’ve haven’t poured enough money down the ratholes. Then they claim because enough billions/trillions weren’t poured down enough ratholes, their plans were circumvented by stingy Republicans who just didn’t care enough about people. I guarantee you if they had spent every last penny of everybody’s money, it wouldn’t be enough. Too conservative. (snicker)

Detroit's last Republican mayor was Louis Miriani, who served from 1957 to 1962. See the list here.

LOL! Yeah, 60 years of small government drove Detroit to financial insolvency.

No wonder they call him Special Ed.

Ok this is just too much of a coincidence to ignore any more. This is the millionth time a liberal has accused Republicans of doing exactly the evil thing they are guilty of, only 180 degrees out of phase. There has to be something psychological to it.

Sort of like Projection when you accuse someone of doing what you are doing, only in this case of course it is Detroit having too MUCH socialistic, central control government, redistributing wealth and choking business until they just leave, along with the crony capitalism and corruption we have seen in Detroit grow over the last 20 years of the last 60 the Democrats have controlled local government.

In a sense he is correct, the current government is too small. This is because liberals (and most republican politicians) borrow all the future for the present and then when the borrowing cannot be sustained then government must downsize. The problem is the shady deals and borrowing over long periods of time.

It’s a shame the state shut down all those mental institutions and released all the patients onto the streets. Now poor Ed has no place to go except the top of some subway grate.

Eddie was actually aborted at birth. They threw his carcass into the waste bin, but unfortunately, a RATZ adopted him and gave him back his pathetic life.

Now, he’s been a demoKaRATZ all his life. “Once a Jet, always a Jet, you’re a Jet all your life.”

In Eddies case: “Once a RATZ you’re a RATZ all your life.”

The boy can’t help himself, he was born an idiot, and as an idiot he will perish.

Only thing I wonder is this: does his momma REALLY love him? Or is she just jivin?

Don’t blame her if she is.
