Why would we expect anything else from the party of Clinton?
While we have no overreaching love for the governerd, who brought us expansion of Obamacare, lost our insurer of last resort, broke the law for his ‘roads’ funding boondoggle, and still hands out money like its not his own, it was not Rick Snyder who put lead in the pipes of Flint. He took credit for the failure of his bureaucracy to properly assess a fast developing public health issue, but he surely did not cause the problem.
Was it the bureaucracy itself? Yes. Decades of poor decision making by those who have by hook or crook made their life’s work to be the decimation of ‘Buick City.’ Poor planning and perhaps a little power mongering graft? From Reuters:
“Henderson’s lawsuit alleged that Mayor Karen Weaver ordered her assistant and a volunteer to redirect donors from a local fund set up to help families affected by the water crisis to her political action committee instead.
The lawsuit charged that the city employee was “specifically directed” to instruct people “step-by-step” to donate to the mayor’s “Karenabout Flint” fund through its website, rather than the Charity Safe Water/Safe Homes fund through the city’s website.
Isn’t ‘redirection’ something that has been happening in Flint and Detroit for decades? And haven’t these once proud bastions of industry and commerce been suffering under single party (guess which one) rule in a significantly parallel time line?
Bureaucracy in all of its manifestations is hardly a single party entity. ‘Players’ come in many shapes, colors, and political stripes. The failures which dominate the government side of the equation are populated by a diverse group of progressives.
But Flint’s past, and current, and (probable) future operations will be directed by those who will undoubtedly pull the lever for the criminal screecher Hillary Clinton this November. It is the abject failure of those who lead from the Democrat ranks that will continue to mismanage resources, and realign blame when it suits them.
An no one should, or will be surprised.
