IT'S NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY!!!



Speaking before the Detroit City Council on Tuesday, Councilwoman JoAnn Watson said President Barack Obama owes the ailing city a government bailout because its residents supported him in the 2012 presidential election.

“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, according to FOX 2 Detroit. “Of course, not just that, but why not?”

“After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young [Detroit’s former mayor of 20 years and former vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee], he went to Washington, D.C. and came home with some bacon,” she added. “That’s what you do.”

As of this writing, the White House has announced no plans to bailout the crumbling Motor City.

But, you know, this video got us thinking: Following the 2012 presidential election, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and talk radio host Rush Limbaugh were savaged by top GOP leaders for saying President Barack Obama won because he promised to give people “free” stuff.

Romney accused the president of promising “gifts” to minorities, young voters, and women, while Limbaugh dubbed the president “Baracka Claus” (a play on “Santa Claus”).

“In a nation of children,” said Limbaugh, “Santa Claus wins.”

“It’s a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they’ll vote for you,” said Romney.

Romney continued:

What the president did is he gave them two things. One, he gave them a big gift on immigration with the DREAM Act amnesty program, which was obviously very, very popular with Hispanic voters, and then number two was Obamacare … For a home earning — let’s say $30,000 a year — free health care, which is worth about $10,000 a year, I mean it’s massive, it’s huge. So this — he did two very popular things for the Hispanic community.
Exit Question: Given the “tit-for-tat” sentiments expressed by the Detroit Councilwoman, how far off do you think Limbaugh and Gov. Romney are? That is, is it really so outrageous to say that some people voted for President Obama because they were hoping he’d give them “free” stuff?

Mitt and Rush nailed it - and that's one of the big reasons our country is in trouble. All of the takers have their hands out, and zerO and his minions are all too willing to spend us into oblivion giving them gifts.

But the thing is, he (they) never really give them gifts. The big money goes to bundlers and dummy corps that launder money back to the DNC or their own pockets.

for 40 years they have promised "bailouts" or freebies for blacks (or whatever group they are pandering to that day) and they are just as poor as they were 4,8,20, 40 years ago.
A few food stamps, an obamaphone? That's it? THAT's the big payoff while Obama goes on another $4 million vacation?

If I was a lazy, no good, looter who voted for my free stuff, I'd be pissed. I been double crossed!!!

That's the point Romney was making: those voters sold Manhattan for a few trinkets.

Are they better off? NO. But they got their gifts and they're happy.
