Nothing says ‘entitlement attitude’ quite like the demand for a bailout in exchange for an election victory. But that’s what Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson is proposing, essentially telling the President that he owes the city, and he needs to provide them “with some bacon”.
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 the citizens support of Obama in last month’s election was enough reason for the president to bailout the struggling the city.
“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?”
Nearly 75 percent of Wayne County voters pulled the lever for Obama in November.
“After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C. He came home with some bacon,” said Watson. “That’s what you do.”

Then there is the official car of the Obama administration, the Chevy Volt, which has seen their production line shipped to China, and has garnered the Worst Flop of 2011 Award.
The first problem I see with these electric vehicles is in the naming. Manufacturers need to start a line of more masculine vehicles. I would no sooner purchase a Chevy Volt, or a Nissan Leaf, than I would a Honda Cottonball, or Ford Baby Powder.
The following statement is from Seton Motley, President of Less Government. Check out the site, as they are, in my opinion, the leading authority on highlighting the hypocrisy and corruption coming out of Government Motors and the Obama administration today…
Via Less Government:
“From the moment the bailouts began – and General Motors became Government Motors – we have seen GM stack failure upon failure.
“There’s the unprofitable, unpopular, combustible electric Chevy Volt – a ‘Worst Product Flop of 2011’ winner. That costs We the Taxpayers $250,000 per unit sold. GM sold in 2011 25% fewer Volts than they had planned – but is in 2012 bizarrely increasing production by 500%. And despite all of this failure – including the inability to determine what is causing Volts to burst into flames – GM will next year begin producing an electric Cadillac and an electric Cruze.
“GM in 2010 received more clean (non-energy) energy patents than any other entity – of the Solyndra,Tesla, Fisker, uber-failure variety.
“And on, and on, and….
“And GM and its Obama Administration-Democrat backers ludicrously tell We the Shareholders that all of this failure is a ‘success.’
“Well, GM was last year the worst car stock of all – and the Chevy Volt was an award-winning flop. So the market ain’t buying it. And neither are We the People.”
