  • Thoughts on Bloomberg

    What are Folks thoughts on the former Republican mayor of New York City that is running as a democrat for president in 2020?


    Bloomberg seems like the exact type of guy that a lot of Republicans would vote for because I noted in last nights debate that the former mayor criticize Sanders and other Democrats for being more like communists instead of democratic. That seems to be what some Republicans want to hear. I don’t wanna hear that but I know some Republicans do. Because I know that the Soviet union helped us win World War II we can never forget that. Bloomberg comes off as very well spoken, very strong, the guy is a billionaire and he is even more successful than Donald J Trump far more successful.



    Bloomberg is Jewish and we have never had a Jewish president in our country’s history so that would be fascinating even if he gets the democratic nomination. A point of criticism against Bloomberg according to barstool sports on xm radio this morning there was a time when one of Bloomberg‘s employees went to him and she asked him what should I do about my pregnancy. Bloomberg sad to get rid of the baby. Then again of course we have not had a Democrat or Republican politician that has been able to change the pro abortion laws in the country none of them have done anything for that. So Donald Trump hasn’t done anything for that Mayor Bloomberg seems to be pro abortion himself. So no Republican voter can honestly put forth the argument that the Democrats are the party of abortion because rnow in our country there are so many states that allow abortion and no politician has been able to do anything about it. I have to say that I like the way Bloomberg talks and acts ...I previously said I would not vote for him but I might just vote for him.

    He's another rich man trying to dictate taxes and socialism to the working class Americans, and his primary endorser is Obama. For those reasons alone I do not see him as a viable candidate.

    He also has to overcome the anti-American legacy of the Democratic Party. Voters have longer memories than politicians think they do.

      I never did care for Michael Bloomberg. He's the kind of stereotypical limousine liberal who firmly believes that he -- and he alone -- can cure budget deficits and crime and diabetes and male pattern baldness and global warming, all while he private-jets to his residences in three countries (US, UK, Bermuda.) Bloomberg's liberal alright -- up until a Negro dares to show his face in public. Then he cringes and sicks his police department all over their black a$$es. And who can forget the sweetheart deal that mayor-elect Bloomberg negotiated for himself -- with himself -- for his shiny headquarters.

      The project represents both a remarkable commitment to New York City by Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire businessman who founded the company, and a potential political liability. His company bargained with city officials for a so-called retention deal: $14.4 million in tax breaks in exchange for a promise to remain in Manhattan. But in the past, Mr. Bloomberg has criticized the city for providing those kind of subsidies to other corporations. With Mr. Bloomberg nearing a decision on whether to run for mayor this year, the company's executives now say they are uncertain whether Bloomberg will ''accept'' the tax break.

      Elected officials usually place their business interests in a blind trust while they're holding public office -- but like other elected officials, Bloomberg made only a pretense of so doing.

      When he was elected, Bloomberg did many of the standard things to distance himself from his previous life. He resigned from the boards of cultural institutions, including the Met, Lincoln Center, and the Jewish Museum, and from most of the country clubs to which he belonged. He did not, however, put his 72 percent ownership interest of Bloomberg L.P. in a blind trust. The city’s Conflict of Interest Board ruled that Bloomberg had to recuse himself from daily decision-making at the company but that he could continue to participate in any talks about selling it. Though rumors continue to surface that a sale would follow on the heels of Bloomberg’s reelection, he says there are no active negotiations.

      That being said, the only coherent criticism leveled by the other Democratic presidential candidates boils down to two words: "Bloomberg's rich." I've already detailed Elizabeth Warren's manifest hypocrisy -- including taking monies from foreign parties long known to be elbow deep in US politics. So what about the rest of the field?

        I think this is accurate. He's super rich so he doesn't have to concern himself with what his policies do to the "little people." He only needs acceptance from other elites like himself so he champions causes that they like. But, money doesn't always buy elections as Tom Steyer found out last cycle. Steyer is another billionaire Progressive like Bloomberg, only without the political baggage.

        Super Tuesday will tell. If Bloomberg does poorly he's finished.

              That’s a great post a lot of information. Bloomberg was not only criticized for being wealthy but also for an alleged personal attack he lobbied against some female employees which included a anti lgbt remark. Warren called him out on that. Warren is not my kind of Candidate though. I can’t imagine I would support her if she gets the nomination and part for her checking down her ancestry during college years as so-called Native American when she was not.

              You talk about business controversies associated with Bloomberg there in one thing I would add is that Bloomberg said he would sell his company if he is elected president. He’s trying to distance himself from the controversy Trump is facing with being involved in his business perhaps through sons or some other method while being a president. And I imagine if it comes down to Bloomberg versus Trump in the debates that Bloomberg will bring up things like the fraudulent trump university and the fact that Trump has gone bankrupt numerous times. Bloomberg will bring up Trump’s failed casinos(Trump Taj I was there for some Omaha hi low ) and plenty of other controversies associated with Trump such as not paying construction workers when the job is completed.

              The stop and frisk policy of Bloomberg that disproportionately affected Americans of African descent will also be brought up by Trump in debate..Of course this will be put up against trumps Many many controversies including words out of trumps own mouth on that we’re critical of minorities. Unless the Trump team can find some video of Bloomberg saying something anti minority Trump won’t fair well in that category. At The same time plenty of Americans black-and-white Are worried about jobs right now more then so called racial issues. So we will see where that one goes. Common sense candidate like Bloomberg I believe will take the approach to this by not dropping the ball like trump did when he said I think Islam hates us or that Mexico sends it’s worse. We won’t see Bloomberg saying that kind of stuff. We won’t see Bloomberg sending out controversial tweets. One also won’t see Bloomberg saying America needs to apologize for its past which is what some democrats would do. So it would be interesting if it’s Trump vs Bloomberg I can’t say either one has a huge edge.

                  I was hoping you would expound on policies of his that you like and this wasn't just based on his religion or the cut of his jib. Be that as it may, it's very peculiar that someone who has bashed Trump for the way he talks and behaves would support someone like Bloomberg. They both talk and act the same.

                          I recall reading something about a connection to the late Jeffrey Epstein.

                          Should the DNC reject Bloomberg, he can still finance an independent run for POTUS. Would he?

                            Probably - no. In a polarised america, that would hand donald Trump the victory lap on a platter.
