8. Very favorable as a human being, but I'm not sure he's the right president for this moment


in history.

I used to watch his press conferences when he was Mayor of New York and a number of times he would be asked about some very good program and everyone, including him, wanted to do it but he would say, "We can't afford it." He's that kind of politician. I'm afraid he'd say "We can't afford it" to some important things because he's so budget-conscious (despite the fact Trump has taken this country on an obscene spending spree from which most Americans have gotten nothing in return).

I might be nuts, but I don't think Bloomberg is running to win. I know he says he's running to win, but I think he's just trying to save the country. People who don't like him might change their minds by November if it turns out he really is here to help us out. I think this guy is a patriot, and he's willing to spend a fortune to save us from four more years of Trump. Too good to be true? Maybe so, but we'll see.

Lastly, I don't think there's any love lost between these guys. I think it could be partly personal for Bloomberg: that he wants to help take Trump down.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
