Bloomberg Raises ‘Socialism’ Label in Discussing Warren

By JIM RUTENBERG

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who has just started a new “super PAC,” did not reserve his strong words to President Obama and Mitt Romney during his 40-minute interview with The New York Times on Friday. Speaking at the uptown headquarters of his private foundation, he also discussed the Massachusetts Democrat running for the Senate, Elizabeth Warren, in the context of communism, his support for the man she is seeking to unseat, Senator Scott P. Brown, a Republican, and a range of other issues.

The Brown-Warren Race

“What I’ve tried to do is find liberal middle-of-the-road Republicans and Democrats. In the Senate, Scott Brown, who single-handedly stopped the right-to-carry bill. You can question whether he’s too conservative. 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.”

I wish she were a Socialist. But making that remark in this context is despicable.

1. They see anyone who would dare put one constraint on Wall Street

as a rabid socialist/communist/Nazi/fascist. To them, it feels like persecution. I swear they have victim envy. The words I want to say to them can't be written here in mixed company.
