One California Republican Gubernatorial candidate is slamming the Motor City.
“Fresno looks like Detroit.  It’s awful.” That’s a direct quote from Meg Whitman — the former Ebay C.E.O . Wednesday to the Editorial Board of the San Jose Mercury News. 
The San Fransisco Chronicle said Whitman was talking about what the recession has done to one of California’s largest cities, when she described Fresno as a lot like the economically depressed city of Detroit.

Whitmans has since apologized for the comparison.

    What is there to apologize for? If Fresno looks like Detroit, it’s a shame. Detroit is a sty, can anyone deny that? it’s been a sty from the time I was born. If anyone needs to apologize, it’s the crooked, inept politicians that made it that way. I was born and raised close to Detroit and I’ll be the first one to tell you the city is a ghetto and, a dangerous place to be night or day. Keep ignoring that fact and it will always be that way. Apologize? You got to be kidding me.

    A politician rarely tells the truth, and when they do, there’s always a group of idiots that get all twisted and a vocal about it. Anyone who gets offended by the truth is an idiot.
