Michael Bloomberg compares Elizabeth Warren to Soviet Communists

Bloomberg Says Warren is like Soviet Communists

New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is supporting Senator Scott Brown for his moderation, but the vociferous defender of Wall Street used some of the strongest language of the campaign to describe Democratic Elizabeth Warren -- comparing her philosophy with Soviet communism.

The comments were published in The New York Times’s The Caucus blog on Sunday, based on a Friday interview Bloomberg gave to the paper.

“You can question whether he’s too conservative,” Bloomberg said. “You can question, in my mind, whether she’s God’s gift to regulation, close the banks and get rid of corporate profits, and we’d all bring socialism back, or the U.S.S.R.”

1. Mayor who dictates to his populous what size soft drinks they must drink, or if he cannot run for

Mayor another term, just change the law

What a flicking hypocrite

6. The more Bloomberg makes shill statements like this the more it looks like Warren will win

Thank Goddess for Elizabeth Warren!

10. And the fascists don't even realize that they fit into that category.

When money and power become gods that is what you get.

11. Another reason to dislike Mayor Bloomberg

Of course he's not going to like Elizabeth Warren who supports regulating the big banks. Wonder why someone who's a big Wall Street supporter would be against such a thing.

13. yep, it appears to be the new plutocratic repug meme

if you're tired of getting screwed, having your pension enronized or watching WS bet on your misery after they created the problem, then your a damn communist. see, a real american believes in predatory, unfettered capitalism-ya'll need the "buyers beware" label, because some irresponsible greedheads have convinced the suckers, oh, i mean some of the american people, that they don't need no stinkin regulations. and, if you do believe in regulating businesses, especially the banks, you're a damn communist.

14. Yeah, it's amazing how they can twist things around.

They have people buying their pack of lies, hook, line and sinker, while they're also being screwed in the process. I just don't understand people who vote against their own best interest. They can regulate small businesses to death, while at the same time let Wall Street run rampant.

12. Bet he makes a late Romney endorsement.

I read his tease of an interview where he criticised both candidates but refused to rule out endorsing one at the last minute.

15. Fuck you Bloomberg. The only real communists in this country are the wealthy elite.

They accumulate all the wealth and redistribute it among themselves. Want proof? Six companies control everything we watch and read about.
