1. No one is threatened by Bloomberg's candidacy

 

He's not really running. He's backstopping Democrats to defeat Trump.

3. No, I think he wants to be President.

 

Agreeing to help the Democratic nominee win, even if it's not him, is a way for him to get around the resentment of jumping in late and self-funding.

10. He is running

 

That is beyond question.

The only thing in question is if he is not the nominee will he support a Democrat who he thinks is less able to defeat Trump. He has said he would but his past shows his allegiance is open to change

5. He's certainly showing the rest of the field how to make a good ad

 

I just saw another new ad from him, I was like "that's it!". His ads are positive and reassure me that we can win this thing.

7. I like that his actually goes after Tramp instead of Democrats..

 

Unlike the entire campaign of a certain other independent runner.

In 2020, I prefer the candidate I back go after Tramp rather than other Democratic Party Candidates, the DNC, Leaders and long time bastions of the Democratic Party, and outspoken Democratic Party Supporters...

No, I'd really rather support and see one that decided to attack this horrendous fascist president instead.

Bloomberg 2020

ANY Democratic Party candidate BUT BS 2020.

9. This new ad is about his slogan and him getting things done in NYC

 

It's positive and only shows the lumpy blobs face near the end of the ad.

It works. I can't find it online yet. Not sure if it's a new ad, but it's new to me.

I found it - it's "Get it Done!"

11. Bernie - because Bloomie is the only other one

 

with the 'rocket fuel' (money) to go the entire distance to the convention.

If all of the other candidates flame out, and we get a Bloomie v Bernie deathmatch - should be interesting.

Bloomie's rise is not just because of money; Steyer has spent a ton and gotten nowhere and is simply not as good a politician as Bloomie, who was the (imperfect, but successful) mayor of a diverse city of 8 million people.

12. He's sucking the oxygen out of the room

 

for moderate candidates like Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. All because he has more money than God.

13. The candidates who sucked the oxygen out of the room are Bernie and Biden.

 

Also rans who had their chance and should have stayed out.

We could have been having a contest between Amy, Elizabeth, Kamala and Pete.

14. There was someone on Cuomo's show

 

(Thursday night?) with a graph that illustrated the coincidence of Biden slipping as Bloomberg picked up steam... maybe the network has it online.
