Newt Gingrich analyzes the meltdown of Detroit

Response to Obama, 7: Liberals and the fall of Detroit

I’ve never been a fan of Newt Gingrich and I never will be. This video was sent to me by a friend who knows how much I can’t stand Gingrich but still thought I should watch this video. He was right. Because Gingrich makes some very valid, very discomfiting points about what is happening to Detroit that need to be heard. I definitely do not agree with everything he says here, like suggesting that Detroit is failing as a result of liberal institutions and policies implemented by Democrats. That’s bullshit, and it’s also very simplistic. And obviously partisan. There’s some other misstatements too, but that aside, this is still important enough to be listened to. And in the spirit of listening to all sides, which isn’t always easy for someone like me, check this out.

  1. This same bureaucratic puppeteering was evidenced earlier this year in DC, monies not being distributed for the welfare of 1500 inner-city kids to avoid stepping on the toes of the education establishment. This is another failed democratic model, where great rhetoric and policy platform descends into pandering to the union establishment. The Democratic party is incapable of change. Sadly, the Repubican party is capable, but unwilling.
