What the Hell is Michael Bloomberg Thinking?
« on: February 09, 2016, 10:38:32 AM »
Mike Bloomberg calls himself an independent, but he has, in prior incarnations, claimed ties to both of the major parties. You could say he's sort of the poster boy for the idea that there isn't a nickel's worth of difference between them.

He's repeatedly shown himself to be the kind of statist that rises in the ranks of both parties, propelled by Big Government, Big Business, and of course Big Money, of which he has a lot.

Could he get elected? I'm going out on a limb to say (you heard it here first) "No Fuckin' Way"!

The race has one billionaire already, Mr. Trump, who has shown that he can disguise himself as a populist, which no doubt pisses off Mike B. to no end. There is no way in hell Bloomberg can tap into that vein. Not even if he lip-synched to Sinatra doing New York, New York, on Saturday Night Live.

The race already has one Wall Street approved Demo candidate, Hillary, whose agenda is not far from his own. Evidently he thinks she is tanking...so he needs to swoop in and rescue the election from those irritating socialists, who might be inclined to tax his many billions of low velocity dollars.

The truth is that Bloomberg's only power would be to hurt the candidacies of  Rubio and Cruz. This might potentially actually help the Donald, although he seems able to vanquish those opponents without help.

Likewise, he stands to hurt Hillary by taking moderate Dem votes, which would actually help Bernie, who despite today's possible NH primary win, needs all the help he can get. Today might be the last good day in his campaign.

Bloomberg didn't get his billions by being stupid. I predict he will NOT run. I'm sure there are a host of sycophants urging him to do so, but if he thinks about it, he'll hold his nose, hike up his skirt and back Hillary   with everything he's got.

Unless Trump offers to make him his VP. In that case maybe they'll lip-synch Frank and dance together all the way to the election.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
