1. he was the one who cleaned up the mess.

 

9/11 is a much longer chunk of time in nyc that elsewhere. it smoldered for a long, long time.

3. He's talking about the recovery. That's a term New Yorkers use. "September 11" didn't end....

 

....at 12:01 on September 12.

When he took office the rubble was still on the ground in lower Manhattan.

7. I would be fine with "led through the aftermath of 9/11"

 


but "through 9/11" isn't true.

8. Again, that's not what NEW YORKERS say. The entire period from September 11, 2001 through....

 

....several years after is referred to as "September 11"!

9. This is a NATIONAL ad campaign. His literal language does not convey

 

what you are saying that it does, except perhaps to residents of NYC, and I don't think his national ad buy has them as his target audience.

13. Not by any New Yorkers I know, and I have family there.

 



This is just another deceptive ad from Bloomberg. Even Joe Biden has complained about Bloomberg's misleading ads:

14. Full of

 

Shit.

Bloomberg is a piece of garbage, he has some nerve bringing up 9/11.


When is someone going to ask him about Det Zadroga?

He accused Det Zadroga of brings junkie.

Bloomberg tried to destroy the reputation of a man that literally died for helping fellow human beings.

100s of firefighters and police officers and iron workers and other trades union members died as a result of the herculean effort to recover and rescue after the attack on 9/11/01.


Bloomberg's response at the time was to accuse, post death, one of these heroes , specifically Det. Zadroga, drug using junkie.

Bloomberg is no better than the repukes that resisted passing the ZADROGA ACT in congress.

Bloomberg literally makes me sick to my stomach. I guess as a NYer I know him better, know the real piece of shit he truly is....not the propaganda MIKE that he pretends to be in his ads.
