Com now -- happy segment do you live in one of the most miserable cities in America I.
Why -- magazine just released its annual list -- 2013 and the most miserable in this.
Detroit the motor city earning the number one spot this year with its high crime rate high unemployment and deep financial woes.
But Ford is looked at unemployment violent crime unemployment foreclosures.
Taxes they also looked at commute times.
And the weather.
Most of the top ten included three cities from Michigan three from Californians three in Illinois and then number ten.
Our great city here in New York -- look at these pictures before and after in Cadillac Michigan this is.
And CN -- and this is the Cadillac in the building right.
And that was so that was before and after that the Grand Central station that bank have you noticed an eye on you pitched -- -- which is -- -- -- because you notice a common denominator.
Yeah almost all the mayors are Democrat and the went to claim they are Democrats are very liberal like Michael Bloomberg is -- claimed to be an independent but he ran as a Republican because you could run as a Democrat.
It's funny you look at Detroit it looks like it was hit by a hurricane was hurricane liberal.
Democrats have run that city forever they've ruined that city Ed and everybody's -- Yeah everybody is leaving I call that the Obama Dividend because he's creating jobs.
In the moving industry.
As people leave and it's also part of Michelle's obesity.
Up quite a BC BC plan because they're running from creditors -- you know -- I'm not ready creative ever heard of Obama Detroit not -- I got.
And coming but what I thought yeah that's what population before Obama was born but I thought he -- the auto industry Bob I don't know.
The auto industry left Detroit and went south hey look it's not going to be time.
Just get a lot out problematic and they think that your city and Washington DC in that list I can't imagine it is not in the top -- of these.
He sees on -- it got up Flint mission again Chicago though is number four -- -- -- up and got a tip it -- it's just yeah getting shot.
-- as -- -- have a lot of defenders the people who eat a lot of people who live there just absolutely love it but for others you know it is a place -- high crime.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Property home prices plummeting mean now when you look at -- -- it looks like.
This set of I Am Legend where the whole place is deserted and there's nothing -- -- in the aviation radio lashing the sadly not the best that I -- plowed under bid for Detroit.
Big community gardens.
Which I'm all for I think and I and in an idea what they -- I think they've been there there -- -- at a he pointed he defended Detroit Andrea looked at his habit I've got a plan here and Robert trying to do is deal with the most important things first which is a crime they need they mean a lot more public lighting.
But for a lot of these cities are they too far gone to come back.
I think a lot of them are and I look at Detroit for example.
There budget deficit is something like at 32 billion dollars it's I don't see how you come back bankruptcy and I just don't see how you do it because you take all of these things like.
The crime rate well if you have a spending problem and -- have enough money to pay for police how do you think the fix the crime problem and what does everyone does move out like Greg says -- get a job with mayflower moving.
One of the things we didn't get to in the first block as the breakdown of the family and you touched upon it.
Greg and I think that's a huge issue in all of these cities and President Obama is the perfect messenger he's missed that opportunity as well.
The one thing that they took out of the surveyed this year that they had last year with sports teams because they set it -- more regional than just city specific.
But -- true eight.
For exam -- good sports teams right yeah I guess sellers like the lions and tigers and bears yeah -- this is it's still my I -- fairs there in Chicago at the end of the day.
I would I would there's so many fathers right -- think that's that's true things about it.
Yeah this -- they do have a lot of visually sports teams in baseball and football and people seem to keep going -- games until about the state mostly from the suburbs but remember you got to think about BC's not just inner city but the suburban area around it.
Washington DC man and a democratic candidates are hard well that's right but it needs a lot of to -- any damage people working that gets worked up.
A quick question about around a table favorite city outside of the one you grew up in.
Well -- -- -- as a scout -- favorite cities New York I can't answer that -- get answered Bob Austin, Texas -- -- -- Miami that's -- -- -- -- United States in the united.
I let my editor at ten years -- yeah -- jelly out the first -- somebody tells you it's it's close to a lot of places but it's true.
If you heard your job you're 45 minutes of Philly you're out -- new York and -- really close to Quaker town -- above us.
Reports this and there's got coats but not and that mentality that -- -- -- -- goes is he's over these really messy hot dogs Andrea you know outside that they got every.
Think big amateur rehab alike and talents I don't think ready as that's right and we used to try to escape to their re having good -- who would -- back to the -- A -- -- good at playing is missing is sixty miles from New York twenty years behind it.
But it's a fun place doc goes -- -- -- I've I've haven't been -- it's sticking around after you don't get and chicken.
And then they would run the demographic that it's you know it's it's heavily Hispanic and the liberal I think I had to go back -- -- Favre should do is ask about the best eateries -- undertake any rocks and then that you -- add that to the happy.
The weather resistant and it's -- weather's gonna change I mean to get climate could but that's like you are leading.
Yes what does that electrical the other about it when anti and I we haven't had enough global warming yet does not the last of those that -- -- -- aided attend manners of the miserable -- supported her.
I don't I support one -- -- -- -- I -- miserable all I have to do and not a lot of those urban places like San Antonio -- -- Be aggressive there supported Obama -- that cities doing.
Great -- -- in the south and also in taxes.
