Another blog, Views of a Moderate takes on Republican Assemblyman Frank Lobiondo in New Jersey for his comments blaming President Obama for Atlantic City woes. We understand partisanship, but really? One wonders how these politicians can spew such B.S. without cracking a smile. One wonders what they teach in Political Science classes which allows them to say such things. Partisan Lying 101?
You can debate who is responsible for an anemic economy but in the case of Atlantic City, that is near the bottom of the blame game list. Blaming a bad economy for Atlantic City's woes is akin to blaming the discovery of electricity for an electrical fire in a house. Sure it may be a factor, but it really isn't the cause. With respect to Atlantic City's woes, the blog entry lists those which are on the top of the list.
The bottom line is the Golden Age of Atlantic City has come and gone. Just like racing, it failed to innovate when it had the time.
