Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wed Feb 12, 2020, 08:23 AM

 

Bloomberg.

Bloomberg has more going for him than it might seem.

He's an actual billionaire who is spending millions of his own dollars on ads attacking Trump. They're good ads.

Bloomberg has fans among educated progressives who like his public health policies and his commitment to the environment. These folks are part of Sanders' base, and they vote.

It's too early to tell, but this could get interesting.

1. Just the difference in the legitimacy of HIS "billionaire" over trumps is HUGE

 

I can just see him telling trump: "I'm a true billionaire, didnt need 400M from my daddy, none of my companies or I have ever filed bankruptcy, I'm worth 50x what you claim to be, and I've never been involved in schemes to steal money". Etc etc etc.
Oh, and Mike actually signed up for the military during Vietnam, no bone spurs excuse for him. Although trump would likely point out that Bloomberg was rejected for flat feet. Still dont know why thats a disqualifying problem

2. I'm a little unsettled that we have an article saying warren should step away

 

with 7 delegates while bloomberg has ZERO delegates and is being treated like some amazing campaigner. Hes done absolutely nothing but commercials and hasnt gotten a single delegate. So unfair!!!!

3. He hasn't been on the ballot yet, of course he doesn't have any delegates!

 

But I agree that Warren should not step down.

7. ? I'm not following. You stated Bloomberg has no delegates (true) and I stated the reason

 

I don't think he's been saying he's the front runner, has he?

Gaining? Hes in last place right now in delegates.

13. Did you respond to the wrong thread?

 

As you can see, I support Warren. I'm certainly not suggesting that she drop out and I didn't cite any article in my OP.

11. Stop--Throw'em against the wall--and Frisk

 

He sure does have a closet full.
And it's already tumbling.
All the audio of Bloomie openly advocating racial profiling and police brutality in enforcing unconstitutional "stop and frisk" policies has started that process.
How many POC can even think about turning out Mikey when he spouts crap like this?
Profile and brutalize their family members just because?
No thanks.

23. Who know, but Enough

 

to seriously depress voter turnout among POC.
Why would they turn out for someone who wanted their family members "thrown up against a wall" so they can be searched unconstitutionally just for being themselves?
Is there really a more important issue?
I'm sure it wasn't a big deal to Bloomie...why would he think twice about it?
Neither billionaires nor their sons and daughters have to worry about it.
After all, Bloomie said, "all crime is in minority neighborhoods."

21. He was elected in NY 3 times.

 

Besides positions while mayor that people don't like, I can't imagine he wasn't vetted.

... apologies with false statements behind them.

15. I'm only talking about electability.

 

A stone cold racist won - apparently - in 2016. Unfortunately, a lot of U.S. voters like racism. I don't agree with them, but they vote.

If it was today, I'd go Pete, but damn it's hard.. I want 2 things..

First I want Bernie defeated,
Then I want Trump defeated..

Hard as hell to really tell who's best for that.

19. Here in NC early voting starts tomorrow and Bloomberg has massive TV ad coverage

 

Both my spouse and my best friend thought that Obama was endorsing Bloomberg based on the ad using photos of them together with Obama praising Mike's work on education and other initiatives. I had to explain that the ad used old footage, but there's no denying the power of those TV ads.

20. Seriously considering Bloomberg

 

If neither Buttigieg nor Klobuchar can break out, I have to go Bloomberg to stop what I consider the WORST possible candidate.
