    By Suzette HackneyDetroit Free Press Staff Writer A Detroit City Council special investigative session into a police whistle-blower lawsuit settlement erupted into a yelling match when President Pro Tem Monica Conyers made claims that she was being disrespected. The argument began when Conyers asked an independent attorney who was testifying if the council could be sued by Detroit residents for approving the $8.4-million lawsuit settlement.

She added: "We all know how you voted; you don't have to keep repeating it." Moments later, Conyers interrupted Council President Ken Cockrel as he was questioning Carl Edwards, the Detroit attorney.

She believes Detroit is in desperate need of a government bailout but, until now, the White House has announced no plans to do so.

Cockrel reminded Conyers that he had the floor and banged his gavel repeatedly. Conyers railed: "You're not my Daddy. You're not going to disrespect me. Grow up! Control your house and learn how to treat women." Cockrel told Conyers that she was "one to talk." Conyers also made repeated mocking reference to Cockrel as Shrek, the green, grumpy and rotund ogre from the animated film. As the council members yelled at each other, residents attending the hearings yelled, as well. "You're disrespecting the citizens!" and "This is a shame!" Cockrel took a quick recess to regain order before then breaking for lunch.

Watson's quotes are causing a stir among conservative media outlets, blogs and even Twitter. Many conservative sites are suggesting now that Mitt Romney may have been correct in his assessment that Obama won re-election because he gave voters "gifts." Romney stated, "It's a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they'll vote for you."
