Holmes happy for his buddy, the mayor

Linebacker Earl Holmes went to sleep Tuesday night unsure whether his old Florida A&M teammate, Kwame Kilpatrick, would still be mayor of Detroit when he woke up the next day. When he heard the news Kilpatrick won, Holmes was thrilled.

Earl Holmes wrote:
"Great guy, stand-up guy,a guy I trust."

"If Kwame gives you his word, it's the truth."

Earl must have gotten into CRog's stash...cuz Kwame is the worst thing to happen to Detroit. The guy is a POS.

I agree M2...


Kwame is a joke, and a disgrace to the city of Detroit. Hendrix was the better choice, but only because he hasn't got the cohort of crooks Kwame has built up of the last four years. I wish Detroit could come up with another viable candidate like Dennis Archer. That city is faced between not who the best man for the job is, but which crook will steal the least! I hope the City is taken over by the state of MI, and cleaned up.

I love how he was WAY down in the polls, and was just saying "You just wait!!! My votes will be coming in!!!" the entire night. All the "pollsters" were wrong with their predictions, I went to bed thinking Hendrix won clearly.

What an embarrassment to the city. I see nothing has changed, and probably won't until the people of the city decide to vote someone in for the right reasons. Reminds me of the Coleman Young days.......disgraceful :cry:

You're right it is a total embarrassment to the city - and the state.

The problem is that all of SE lower Michigan is affected by it. The city of Detroit has an enormous financial impact on the entire surrounding area. So much so that everyone in the surrounding counties should also be allowed to vote for the mayor of the city - but that will never happen.

WOW :shock: A topic we finally all can rally around and agree upon...

I was SHOCKED to say the least at 5:30am the next day hearing that Kwame won...I thought it was a mistake after seeing the 19% lead and Channel 4 declaring Hendrix the winner...although later having some pollster guy come out with his tail between his legs to say that it may be "too early" to make the claim. They must have seen a major shift in the numbers. I am sure someone was fired over that debacle.

I cannot see why people support Kwame...I have seen nothing in Detroit bettered as a result of the guy. Everything that has helped Detroit at all has been a result of the work Dennis Archer put in...the stadiums which brought a revitalization to local businesses and resteraunts and many of the big events like the Super Bowl. I am not sure about the casinos because I just don't go to them...I am way to cheap but it was at least something that was done in hope to improve what many feel was an unvisitable city.

By that same logic, should Mexico and Canada vote for the President of the United States??? I understand what you're saying, but it would be disinfranchising the citizens of Detroit. It may be for their own good (see Detroit's school board, and the fact that the City itself may be taken over by the State of Michigan), but it is still wrong. That's the problem democracy, it's predicated upon an engaged and educated public. (hmmm do I leave this open...) And in light of past events, I will clearify and say the mayorial race in Detroit seems to be more of a popularity contest, than an educated, rational decision for who should be mayor :wink: .
