Detroit gets the back of Obama's hand

Obama to Detroiters: So long, and thanks for the votes suckers! Remember to vote for me in 2012!

The Detroit News: Detroiters feel the sting that Obama chose Warren instead
This past Saturday, President Barack Obama addressed the Ghanaian parliament, extending America's hand to the African continent while condemning corruption and tyranny.

"No country is going to create wealth if its leaders exploit the economy to enrich themselves," he said.

He could have been talking about Detroit. And when he came to Metro Detroit on Tuesday, Obama conspicuously did not set foot in the city -- the nation's largest black urban center plagued by corruption, illiteracy and crime. Detroit, it seems, is less Ghana and more gangrene in the national political consciousness. And with the presidential snub, Obama appears to have fanned the feelings of hopelessness and isolation in the city.
Ha! Kinda funny to think that Third World countries known for their corruption may be less corrupt than the Democrat cabal controlling the "D".

Also funny as Detroit, being a locked up base for Obama received no attention, he doesn't need the city until the next election and he would gain nothing by displaying what happens when you create a one-party Democrat city and the corruption that results, suffering at the hands of Democrat policies at the city, state and national levels. This is especially so as Obama is trying to make the same moves on the national scene. Obama gains nothing by appearing in Detroit and has the risk of losing much so why bother?

But some seem to realize why they are being taken for granted:
"We're black and he got our vote quite frankly because many of us voted for him because he is black," said Karsem McCurtis on Tuesday, whose family owns Conner's Food, just a stone's throw from the Wayne County Community College campus on Detroit's east side. As it happened, Obama chose Macomb Community College in Warren to unveil a national education initiative.

"It would have been good for him to come," said McCurtis, whose building is painted with an Obama mural. "But he's got our vote locked up, and he's not going to get much play coming to a black city full of corrupt politicians."

Understatement of the year there. Then again with Detroit as a one party city that will vote color over character, regardless of the damage it does to the "D" what did they expect would happen?
