Detroit Councilwoman Wants Her 'Bacon' From Obama

Where’s my bacon, Obama?  That's the attitude of Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, who said that in appreciation for Detroit having voted for the president, Obama should bail out the financially insolvent.

In fact, Watson says, “that’s what you do” when your friends help you out.  Alas, the country sees the incompetence and the entitlement that has ruined Detroit.  Just because you helped get the president re-elected, doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed loans to save your city.  In fact, if such a list existed, I’d bet that most of California’s municipalities are probably in front of you, Ms. Watson.
