As goes Detroit, so goes the nation

File under C for clueless.  The Boston Globe ridicules our former governor in their editorial Romney: Liberals destroyed my house:

"It's sad'' that his childhood home is being razed, Romney told the Journal, "but sadder still to consider what has happened to the city of Detroit, which has been left hollow by fleeing jobs and liberal social policies.''

Alas, there is only one remaining government handout that could protect the home: The National Park Service's tradition of maintaining the childhood homes of presidents. If Romney were to win the big prize in 2012, the place of his upbringing would be a tourist attraction. But that's one bet Detroit isn't willing to wait on.

Gov. Romney addresses the fact that since 1961 Detroit has been run by liberal Democrats who have devastated the economic powerhouse they inherited.   With responsible people governing Detroit and a community of business people generating jobs and income, Romney's 5,500 square foot childhood home in a well to-do-neighborhood would not be razed.  In the statist mindset of the Globe editors, alas, cities fall on hard times through an indecipherable series of misfortunes, and the only way to prop up housing values is through a "government handout."  

It is frightening to consider that the Obama Administration wants to lead the country down the same path that Detroit has followed.
