Your post is so important I wish you'd consider reposting it in Primaries where more people

would see it.

Our candidates really need to think about finding Trump's weak points.

They are sitting there inside him, just waiting to be pushed.

We have similar ideas about this.

I couldn't agree more with your proposition. Bloomberg has sociological and psychological advantages no other candidate has. He can attack Trump from the very space Trump believes belongs to him (and fantasizes that he owns). An attack coming from this intimate terrain is much more traumatic for Trump. He won't take it well. (I've been speculating that Trump wouldn't even debate Bloomberg.)

Also, Bloomberg can bypass Trump's defense mechanisms to attack him at the very pit of his being.

Bloomberg has no fear of Trump--not in any way, shape or form. There's actually nothing Trump can do to Bloomberg.

Not to get too psychoanalytic, but an attack by Bloomberg on Trump could reawaken Trump's terror of his own father. So I think Bloomberg can hit Trump at his weakest point, a point he tries to protect and that no other person has yet successfully hit.

Here's a post I made some time ago. It's a little old, and I would change some things in it, but it's substantially how I see things:


But I love this topic! We don't talk enough about locating Trump's weak points or how to exploit them. Thanks for your post!

There's going to be a nonstop flood of corruption between now and November.

It's hard to know for certain what to do.

I'm thinking about trying to filter it out and solely focus on beating him in November, so as not to fall into despair.

Trump is going to try to break our spirit and our resolve. We have to try to ignore it and keep fighting.

Thank you, MineralMan.

Also, might I add, Failure to take responsibility for mistakes, never apologizing, blaming others, terrible hiring decisions, accepting endorsements from virtually anybody, angry countenance, withholding medical records, brash physicality and general discourtesy, including jabbing his finger at people, pushing people away...

This is my question too.

I'm in Arizona and I don't know a single Bernie supporter, now or in 2016. (EDIT: There was one, actually, in 2016, but I'm not positive she was old enough to vote.)

How is he going to "get out the vote" and how can he help Mark Kelly beat McSally?

The Bloomberg people called my mother two Sundays ago and asked her if she

wanted a yard sign.

We live out in the middle of nowhere, almost 100 miles from the closest major city.

The Bloomberg campaign is the only campaign that's contacted her, other than a few mailings from Senate candidate Mark Kelly.

EDIT: No, my mom said, "No" but she was very polite and very impressed. She's supporting Warren. She said, "Why don't the Warren people ever call me?"

Now go register this website:


Bloomberg slaughters Trump

First, he has sociological and psychological advantages no other candidate has over Trump. (I doubt Trump would even debate him.)

Secondly, damned near every independent who still has a working brain cell will vote for Bloomberg.

Three, he siphons off Republicans.

He wins in purple states. He helps down ballot candidates, not just by being on the ballot but with money.

There would be blood on the tracks.

Dear MSNBC: Political Lanes are Horseshit

Chris Hayes had a guest on last week who said voter choices are much more fluid than analysts think, and that policy is only one factor.

My path to today:

Michael Bennet (before he formally announced) to Sherrod Brown (before he didn't announce) to Jay Inslee to Kamala Harris to Mayor Pete, back to Kamala Harris to Michael Bennett back to Kamala Harris, then to Elizabeth Warren but secretly wanting both Kamala Harris AND Elizabeth Warren.

Then I took a quiz that told me I was most closely aligned with Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Guilt and confusion

Then Kamala dropped out.

Stayed with Warren, got nervous after the UK elections, moved to Undecided here but was thinking, "I'm going to end up voting for Biden in the GE, but I'm voting Warren in the primaries."

Then: interested in Bloomberg.

Then: Is Mayor Pete possible? I sure do like him.

Then: Concerned about Biden.

Can we just have two or three people be President?

I want my cake and want to eat it too. And that's not even all of it.

Now I just want the voters to decide for me.

He invented something called the Bloomberg Terminal

that was able to establish the fair price for similar bonds in real time, especially for fixed-income investment managers. This was just barely when computers were becoming available.

Later, he added equities/stocks to the computer, and breaking news that would be of importance to investment managers.

Before that, it was very hard to establish the fair value of a bond, or to find exactly the bond you were looking for.

These could fit on a desk, and Wall Street types rented the unit. Nowadays, it costs about $22,000 a year to rent a terminal. It is also in demand from news rooms and everyday bankers. Wells Fargo was the first corporation to use the Terminal en mass.

That's my lay-person understanding.

Maybe someone else could explain it better.
