Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wed Dec 11, 2019, 08:41 PM

 

Bloomberg's candidacy is hopeless. All in favor?

AYE!
WTF is this guy thinking/drinking/smoking?
I don't understand what his motivation could possibly be.
He. Has. No. Chance.
Period.

'Splain me?
TIA

1. The way his spots are promoting, I think he's just using money

 

To go after trump.

As an individual contributor, he can only contribute so much to the campaigns of candidates running.

Thereís a lot of rules on spots attacking candidates from individuals.

As a candidate he can flood the airwaves with attacks on trump.

So far, everything Iíve seen from him is him going after trump and not our primary candidates.

Kind of hoping that catches on with the rest of our field.

5. Good points

 

So I guess he is doing something productive with his money if it reaches a lot of people. Hadn't thought of it that way.

No need to run to attack Trump.

4. Nay!

 

Bloomberg is now ahead of Booker and Klobuchar. I don't think he's likely to win but I wouldn't flippantly discard him.

As for his motivation? How about: he thinks Biden won't get the nomination and Sanders, Warren etc. won't beat Trump.

7. re: "he thinks Biden won't get the nomination and Sanders, Warren etc. won't beat Trump."

 

Alternatively, maybe he thinks Biden won't get the nomination and he's afraid that Sanders or Warren WOULD beat Trump.

23. He's politically savvy enough to understand the likelihood that Sanders would lose...

 

...I and many people here do.

He's also likely to understand that Warren is more likely to win the nomination than Sanders, and is also a risk.

6. Well, he's up to 6 percent in some polls

 

But yeah, I would hardly bet the farm on him.

Personally, I believe he has good intentions, but the country is hardly ready for yet another billionaire short-cutting his way into the Oval Office.

8. I think that the chances of Bloomberg winning the nomination are slim and none.

 

However, as long a Biden is doing this well nationwide, in Iowa and in New Hampshire, it is fine with me if Bloomberg stays in.

Is it possible that Bloomberg is hurting Pete Buttigieg more than anyone else?

16. If Bloomberg is serious about winning the nomination

 

He must be hoping for a Biden collapse before Super Tuesday .In such a far-fetched scenario moderates, he hopes, would jump on his bandwagon to stop the Progressive who emerges from the results in the Early States . It is an extreme longshot presidential bid. Bloomberg has no better than a 15 -1 chance of pulling it off

Too many Dems talking about taxing the insanely rich.

Somebody had to do something and by golly it was him.

20. I'm not one of his supporters but

 

He's more qualified than Tom Steyer. He has held public office. He's more qualified than the Rump Named tRump.
