Rocker Ted Nugent Rips Democrats for Fall of Detroit

-By Warner Todd Huston

Rock legend and conservative gadfly Ted Nugent told TMZ that he is “shattered but not at all surprised” that the liberals have destroyed his beloved city of Detroit.

As we all know, Detroit is filing for bankruptcy after 5 decades of Democrat Party rule.

Meanwhile, our bailed out auto industry is now outsourcing to China! Nice, eh?

Of course, Ted is called “the Motor City Madman,” so he has long ties to that once powerful American metropolis. But the liberals have reduced the city to a pile of burning rubble befitting as a backdrop for a WWII movie set in Dresden, Germany, as opposed to a great American city.

Of Detroit, Nugent says, “Liberal democrats took hold of the greatest, most productive city on earth and turned it into a bloodsucker excuse-making hell. Liberals seem to think that what Mugabe did to destroy the breadbasket of Africa in Zimbabwe is somehow a desirable model.”

Nugent also brought our Destructor in Chief into the discussion saying, “If allowed to continue, our President will do the same to the whole country. Heartbreaking and tragic.”

This is an obvious truism. After all, Obama wants the exact kind of ruinous policies that destroyed Detroit. Massive welfare, faux spending on “infrastructure” that is really nothing but payoffs to unions… and speaking of unions, the worst part of all. They take from the taxpayers and give nothing in return. High pensions, higher than what anyone in the private sector ever makes… etc., etc.

Some fear that Obama will try to ride in on his union horse and give Detroit a federal bailoutall stuck with the loss.

Of course, Senator Rand Paul says Obama will bailout Detroit “over my dead body!”
