Quid Pro Quo

Link to new story is below. Councilwoman Watson stating why she thinks President Obama should bail out Detroit.

I am sad for our country. I'm sad for the people in our country that seem to have forgotten what President Kennedy once said; "Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."

We need to go back to those standards.

I am not sure why it surprises me that a woman or man.. anyone would think like Detroit's Councilwoman Watson. Perhaps it's not that she thinks like that, maybe what surprises me is how profoundly sad this makes me to know that rather than vote for a president on merit people vote for what they think is in it for them..
