Tell Watson to Buy Her Own Bacon!

Don't think President Obama is using federal spending to buy votes? Well, the recipients of his generosity with our money sure do.

Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson publicly argued that President Obama owes the City of Detroit a bailout or, as she phrases it, "some bacon." Why? Because Detroit voters supported Obama. Here's the money quote:

"Our people in an overwhelming way supported supported the re-election of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo."

Keep in mind that we have already bailed out Detroit's auto industry (for now), yet the city has still struggled under decades Democratic leadership that has resulted in astonishing corruption and ineptitude.

And yet, Watson wants the rest of us to pay the price.

Well, I think we should tell her no.

You can find Watson's public profile here, and her public e-mail address is Let's send her an e-mail telling her to buy own damn bacon.

Ryan T. Darby practices law in San Diego, and he buys his own bacon.
