Michael Bloomberg Floats Running For President

Regardless of whether or not he intends to follow on running for the Democratic nomination, Michael Bloomberg alone is planning to spend $500 million dollars to defeat Trump in 2020.

Politico:

“In God we trust. Everyone else bring data.

That’s New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s longtime motto. And it explains how, six months after he was a definite “no” on running for president, he’s apparently changed his mind again.

Bloomberg, who had been running a data-heavy operation focused on electing Democrats, kept seeing the same trends in his research conducted by veteran pollster Douglas Schoen: The once-strong frontrunner Joe Biden was getting weaker by the day in early states. Democratic voters increasingly see President Donald Trump as “dangerous” — and beating him as ever more important. …

Worth $53 billion, Bloomberg would spend no time hitting up donors. And whether he runs or not, Bloomberg still has a $500 million plan to take out Trump. …”

Politico:

“Billionaire philanthropist Michael Bloomberg is preparing to spend at least $500 million from his own pocket to deny President Donald Trump a second term, according to Democratic operatives briefed on his plans.

Bloomberg has not yet announced whether he will run in the Democratic primary. If he runs, he will use that half-billion-dollar stake — roughly $175 million more than the Trump campaign spent over the course of the entire 2016 election cycle — to fuel his campaign through the 2020 primary season, with the expectation that the sum represents a floor, not a ceiling, on his potential spending. …”

Where do people get the impression that our politicians have become the puppets of a tiny handful of elderly Jewish oligarchs?

Note: It is anti-Semitic to notice these things.

  1. Old, diminutive Jew billionaire who favors gun confiscation and the banning of Big Gulp sodas enters the Presidential race. This should be interesting.

  2. I hope he runs. Make him spend every dime on his stupid, quixotic, doomed campaign.

  3. kosher midget does same every 4 years. He

    might get the Jewish midget vote; not

    much else.

    Guppy lips can’t win. Bloomberg’s lips are to thin to be president.

  5. The problem here isn’t that Bloomberg threatens Trump, it’s that the Democrats will want no part of Bloomberg.

    Consider:

    (1) He supported SQF as mayor, which is a cardinal sin for BLM these days. The zeitgeist among the announced Democrats is loosening the criminal justice system for black defendants — Even Joe Biden is trying to walk back his tough on crime past.

    (2) He royally ticked off the teachers’ unions with his support of the neoliberal education reform agenda. Think: Joel Klein, Waiting for Superman. Here at the end of the decade, the unions have been able to beat back the neolibs on education policy within the Democrat Party, and now have the whip hand once again. The main reason is that the Democrats needed to keep the unions happy once Trump won, in order to keep their union dues within the blue team. The other reason is that neoliberal education reform petered out once the economic recovery kicked in, as the whole neoliberal reformist project was little more than suddenly unemployed people from the financial services industry post-2008 trying to nose in on teachers’ good secure jobs and benefits.

    So Bloomberg is already starting off with two giant mainstays of the party he’s running on, blacks and teachers’ unions, doing the #NeverBloomberg thing.

    He’s got no shot. One or two percenter at best.
