Bloomberg reconsidering running for President.

 

Now there would be a 'Man For All Seasons' and a Man For All Reasons, one that would appeal to enough on both sides to get the numbers.

 

You heard it here first.

At this point he would be a savior compared to the liar, the socialist, the racist bigot, and the blowhard with no plan.

The GOP base (I assume he'd run as Republican?) would hate him. He's liberal by GOP standards; he's also a technician rather then a culture warrior.

He is a  rabid anti.  He will split the D's

He is a  rabid anti.  

 

Right.

 

Bloomberg  is  a megalomaniacal racist who will be repugnant to constitutionalists, particularly supporters of the Second Amendment.

 

 Bloomberg  declared that minorities should not be allowed to possess firearms, a stance that is profoundly  un-American.

 

Remember this?

Michael Bloomberg suggests disarming minorities to 'keep them alive’

 

1861963

 

By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Sunday, February 8, 2015

 

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly argued Friday that guns need to be kept out of the hands of minorities in order to keep them alive.

 

While speaking at the Aspen Institute, Mr. Bloomberg, 72, said 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: a male minority between the ages of 15 and 25, The Aspen Times reported.

 

Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, the former three-term mayor said, according to The Times.

 

“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” said Mr. Bloomberg, who funds the gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”

 

Mr. Bloomberg brought up the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk practices, recalling a time during his last year in office when a Baptist minster in Harlem invited him to speak at their church, The Times reported.

 

“While I’m sitting there waiting for him to introduce me, he said to his congregation, 'You know, if every one of you stopped and frisked your kid before they went out at night, the mayor wouldn’t have to do it,’” Mr. Bloomberg said. “And so I knew I was going to be OK with that audience.”

 

The former mayor spoke to a sold-out crowd Friday about a variety of topics, including poverty, education and marijuana legalization.

 

Mr. Bloomberg argued that Colorado’s legalization of recreational marijuana use was a terrible idea and is hurting children, The Times reported.

 

“What are we going to say in 10 years when we see all these kids whose IQs are 5 and 10 points lower than they would have been?” he asked. “I couldn’t feel more strongly about it, and my girlfriend says it’s no different than alcohol. It is different than alcohol. This is one of the stupider things that’s happening across our country.”

 

The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, the state’s largest gun rights group, compared Mr. Bloomberg’s comments to those uttered by white supremacists and demanded the former mayor apologize.

 

“Mayor Bloomberg’s statement that black males should not be allowed to have guns echos similar sentiments made by southern white supremacists in the 19th century,” Tom King, the association’s president, said in a statement. “So called 'Black Codes’ were enacted by various southern states to discriminate against black Americans and maintain the system of white supremacy that made slavery possible. These included restrictions on firearms possession.

 

“If a politician said this about anything other than guns, the mainstream media would be all over them,” Mr. King argued. “Michael Bloomberg isn’t just any politician, he is the leading voice for gun control in America. He should be held accountable for this slander.”

A question for those more in-tune with the primaries that are around the corner.  A lot of these contests happen the first week of march, is there really any shot of getting on the early ballots, or is this a bloomberg big gulp-type dream?

Not by republican standards...he's a liberal, period.

He's not even popular in NYC.  

Popular enough to get elected, what 3 times?

I see him as a little guy with a big mouth, but maybe I am a shortist(Hate short guys)...

Little rich guy that uses his money to throw his weight around, but that is just me...

Bloomberg had to spend record amounts of money to win those elections, and had to break his own spending record in order to be re-elected.  Overall, he spent over 250M of his OWN money getting elected those three times.

 

I agree with what he you think he is.  Most likely(imo), he sees how Trump has been able to essentially run a campaign, and wants to try to do the same thing.  I don't think he's got an anthill of a chance, but that's me.

He would probably switch parties again back to independent which is what he ran as during his first term. Towards the end of his term people were ready for him to go. Ask around and many people would wish he was back in office as opposed to the do nothing progressive that changed his name so it sounded more new yorkish.

This is the inherent danger in Bloomie's rabid megalomania; the delusional belief that he could be elected President. In what alternative universe does Bloomberg win swing states? Are there enough Jews in Florida to swing that state? (If I'm going to vote for a Jew for President, it would be Sanders.)

 

Bloomberg is the quint ultimate gun grabber. The 2nd Amendment folks would hit the polls in piles & droves to vote against this dweeb. Any Bloomberg run would be there to split votes. As much as I loath Trump, the maned Mussolini, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat, over Bloomberg, who'd be a Hebrew Hitler. :upck:
