Bloomberg: He is dangling a carrot to smear Dems.

IMO, Bloomberg is in the media regarding a possible run for president so that he can get national coverage regarding his opinion of how things are going with the primaries. I am furious that he is getting the spotlight to say NONE of the democratic candidates for president are doing a good job. In his billionaire world he says that NONE of the candidates have good policies. What an arrogant slug!

Just stop it Bloomberg! You are not helping and you are part of the problem.

8. Remember the Billionaires for Bush?

 

They were street theater. My youngest daughter loved them.

Maybe we need more street theater. Things could not get much more bizarre anyway.

2. Nobody cares but other billionaires.

 

I don't think he'll have a significant effect and will never poll more than 1%.

7. Exactly. It is the airtime he is getting with HIS opinions.

 

He is trying to change what the Dems are doing.

4. I guess the 399 other richest families in America.

 

You know, the ones that own half of the Nation's wealth:

You know, the ones that don't have to worry about becoming bankrupt if a family member gets ill:

5. SMH at the kind of mind that can look at a field of 20ish Dems and say, "Only I can fix it."

Bloomie, Steyer, Starbucks Guy, et al: No. More. Billionaires. EVER.

13. "No. More. Billionaires. EVER." should apply to everyone, not just candidates.

 

The world cannot afford to give that much power to any individual.

9. This is the guy who essentially turned NYC into a gated community.

 

It struck me last night - Trump's wall, enclaves like Hudson Yards, places like Coto in the OC, the list goes on but you get my drift - all gated, all keeping out the "other".

Trump wants to turn the US into a gated community, and if what Bloomberg did to New York (when he declared that there weren't enough billionaires there) is any indication, so does he.

Nobody wants yet another billionaire telling us we all suck and are too stupid to choose a candidate and only he can fix it.

12. A rare moment of agreement between a Biden supporter and a Warren supporter...what arrogance...

 

does all that money make him superior somehow? The arrogance is offensive.
