Mayor Bloomberg just gave 500k to the NY Senate GOP, Obama should cut him from his potential VP list
Or at least come out against him for any future economic support or endorsement.

8. Continue making yourself look foolish
Obama has never mentioned him as a running mate. That's pure hillbot bullshit.

20. Stupid comment
Obama would have never picked Bloomberg as his running mate.

2. I don't think he was EVER
on Obama's list of potential VPs. He adds absolutely nothing to the ticket.

3. As you know I have always believed he made a deal with Bloomberg to be his VP and not run as an IND.

4. Yes, I know
and I have always believed your views on the vice-presidential choices are bizarre.

7. Surely, you must be wong.
That would guarantee John McCain's winning the election.

5. How do you know he's ever been on it?
Oh, that's right you don't have a fucking clue. You're just pulling shit out of a dark orifice.

6. He Should Be Cut On Account Of Like, Ya Know, NOT Being A Fucking Democrat.
Proposing an independent or republican for the vp position is really quite dumb.

9. Right. And Obama has NEVER suggested it.
How is there anything to cut when neither Obama or anyone from his camp has ever suggested such a thing?

10. Others Have.
I didn't say Obama did. Others have, and their suggestion is stupid.

25. So Predictable.
Most of you aren't creative enough to come up with your own material. I knew right when I posted it, almost exactly what you'd say in response. So predictable, so unwitty. So "I know you are but what am I"ish.

If you want to go toe to toe with the big bad OMC, then at least come with your own weapons. :hi:

28. If you are too stupid to see the truth about your Queen, you are not equipped to make rules.
You people are reminding me more and more of the "backwash" who still support GWB. See ya.

21. These are the type of people Obama wants to make nice with.
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 12:10 PM by Little Star
You cannot make nice with these people. He is naive.
