Michael Moore: No Obama Didn’t Save Detroit

From NewsBusters.org, By Noel Sheppard, September 07, 2012 – For several years the left and their media minions have claimed that by  bailing out Chrysler and General Motors, President Obama saved Detroit.

On Friday, the perilously liberal schlockumentarian Michael Moore debunked  this in an article  at the Huffington Post astonishingly saying, “No, he didn’t.”

“Last  week, I said on the HuffPost Live webcast that we had all better start  practicing how to say ‘President Romney’ because, living in Michigan, I can tell  you that there’s trouble here on the two peninsulas and it’s not just because  Romney is a native son or that we like to watch kids from Cranbrook chase down  gay kids and chop their hair off,” Moore wrote. “One recent poll here showed  Romney leading Obama by four points! How can that be? Didn’t Obama save  Detroit?”

Moore answered his own question, “No, he didn’t. He saved General Motors and  Chrysler.”

“‘Detroit’ (and Flint and Pontiac and Saginaw),” continued Moore, “are not  defined by the global corporations who suck our towns dry and then split town to  make more money elsewhere (except, of course, they continued to design and built  crap cars, so eventually they didn’t make the money at all). These cities in  Michigan are about the people who live here, and in the process of ‘saving  Detroit,’ Mr. Obama had to fire thousands of these people, and reduce the  benefits and pensions of those who were left.”

Inconvenient truths the Obama-loving media don’t want the public to know.  But Moore wasn’t finished.

“There’s a lot of pissed off people in Michigan (and Wisconsin and Ohio),  people who weren’t saved even though the corporation was. I’m just stating a  fact, and those of you who don’t live here should know this.”

Actually, those that don’t live in these areas would know this if America  had an honest media.

Sadly, we don’t leading to almost unthinkable ignorance about such matters  and many other crucial issues facing the nation.

How extraordinary that an avowed Obama supporter would be willing to let  this cat out of the bag two months before Election Day.

If only the rest of the so-called journalists out there would follow  suit.

Don’t hold your breath.
