The Governor, Rick Snyder, is not handling this badly. He walked into a situation that had been festering for years from former democrat comes to mind as most recent, Jennifer Grahnolm who virtually ignored the problem in Detroit. Gov. Snyder was left to be the sense and sensibility to tackle it - I live here, I know this is a fact!

We are now hearing the usual voices of protest in Detroit in the wake of Michigan governor Rick Snyder appointing an outside expert to take over financial management of the near-bankrupt city.

Detroit is the largest city in American history to be seized in this fashion and turned over to an outside manager.

Reported deficit of the city is $327 million dollars and long-term liabilities are in the range of $14 billion.

But no matter to the unions, politicians, and bureaucrats who have been at the helm for years as the city has spiraled into the depths of the black hole...
