Another great article Dr. Krauthammer! Should be mandatory reading in Congress,
the SCOTUS in every High School and every college economics class in the nation.
Since Obama and the Democrats are running our nation exactly like the Democrats
ran Detroit, is it too late for our entire country to avoid the same fate? I
doubt even Mitt Romney could save our country now, its too late! Hunker down
America, the consequences of your "sin" are coming due and payable.$17
trillion in debt and growing by $1.5 billion each day will not be ignored
forever! Obamacare anyone?
@ MMNothing expresses your Patriotism more than playing partisan
politics and relishing in the destruction of Detroit. Nothing says, "I Love
America" more than your wishing of similar fates to all American cities and
principalities. Unbelievable. BTW, when has Chuck been
right? About anything? His record is pathetic.
That's a photo of Pittsburgh not Detroit.
"...demagoguery...".Demagoguery?Charles is your
Anyone wondered if Mitt Romney had been President, would he have ridden his
wife's famous horse into Detroit and saved the day?After all, it is
Mitt's hometown and he has enough money to take care of business.
Real Maverick. News flash for you! Patriots did not destroy Detroit, Democrats
@ MM"Real Maverick. News flash for you! Patriots did not destroy
Detroit, Democrats did."I know your pathetic record. From
claiming that Obama was born in Kenya to trickle-down economics. You have no
credibility whatsoever. While I appreciate your factless opinions I do find them
humorous for all the wrong reasons. News flash: Corrupt politicians
and short sited "job creators" destroyed Detroit. Sacrificing your
workers (who are the real job creators) for short-term profits is a recipe for
long-term disaster. We see this now in Detroit.Had politicians
diversified the economy in Detroit and CEOs built a good quality product (while
maintaining liveable wages for their workers) Detroit would not be in the
quagmire it currently finds itself in.
"The time of Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Spain, the rest of insolvent
social-democratic Europe — and now Detroit — is the time for
conservatives to raise the banner of Stein's Law and yell "Stop."
Reality check: the collapse of these economies was occasioned by the mass sale
of mortgage backed securities (by U S banks) and the subsequent collapse of
their imputed values. I would ask Krauthammer to present the whole picture.
@ no fit in SGYou miss the fact that no one has the money to fund
the corruption, not at little Detroit levels, and certainly not at Federal
Government levels. No one, not even Warren Buffet and his secretary.Nurses say Stein's Law this way:"All bleeding eventually
stops."I just wonder if we are going to apply pressure, or if we
just wait until all the blood runs out.
You are wrong again. I never claimed Obama was born in Kenya. So much for your
