I don't think, at 78, that he really wants to run the nation.

I don't either, he just wants the feather in his hat. That being the case, he shouldn't be applying for a job he doesn't really want.

Most of America doesn't want him running the nation either.

ALL the candidates want to do the right thing. They all have different visions of what that might be.

Just as voters have different visions of what they want the government to do.

That's why we have primaries.

Will Mike divest himself of his holdings and turn over his personal tax records?

Is it even possible for a man of such wealth to do either of those?

His platform is oatmeal. His advertising blitz sidesteps the democratic process and puts the nomination up for sale to the highest bidder.

Again, I don't think he wants to be president. He just wants to make sure Trump gets defeated. I have no idea what his plan for this is. I do know that he has built a truly impressive organization and has paid for it through November and has already stated he will turn it over to whoever wins the Democratic Nomination (I wonder if that includes Bernie).

He has also said that he decided a while ago to try and to the right thing with his money. One of the reasons he is getting a lot of the black vote, for instance, is that he has been supporting several of their causes for several years.

I know, he is very rich, and that apparently means, to many that he is a very bad man. That, in my mind, is not a particularly smart outlook but it seems popular, especially by the far left. Its really strange. The far left, for instance, are busily supporting causes that they know don't stand a chance. I watched Fareed last Sunday when he took part of Bernie's plans and pointed out that they simply made no sense (you can probably watch his last Sunday show and hear that). Goto either Warren or Bernie sites and actually read the plans. Some sound absolutely great and also make no sense. Whoever takes over from Trump are going to have to deal with the debt before the nation is bankrupt. That's a simple fact and its easily proven if you check it out.

The very first thing the Dems are going to have to do is put our house back in order and there is a LOT of ordering necessary. Trump will have had 4 years to virtually destroy government infrastructure. There is, again, A LOT OF STUFF THAT NEEDS FIXING! (and a lot of that has to do with gov itself).

Um. Like what? Stop & frisk? Or redlines?

He’s been buying loyalty thru his charitable foundations. A way to skirt election laws, weak as they are, and use it against paying taxes.
He’s also a resident of the Bahamas for tax purposes.
He’s also never had to deal with being seriously challenged.

Debate night will be interesting.

Please tell me you have a credible source for this.

ETA: Seriously. I have some people elsewhere that can be dragged around all day just with this one thing.

Bloomberg, Duperreault spotlight Bermuda’s global value

His campaign has been doing some heavy redacting of the internets but it’s still up.

When will the Russian hysterics start in on Bloomberg’s connections, I wonder...

They were serious, weren’t they?

Thanks. I'll have to look at this when I get home, because my company has the site blocked.

Where in the article you linked above does it state or allude the above? I have a copy and have read it, I do not see it.


Addendum:

Here is what his Wikipedia article says about his Public image and lifestyle. - "Bloomberg maintains a public listing in the New York City phone directory.[245] During his term as mayor, he lived at his own home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan instead of Gracie Mansion, the official mayoral residence.[246] In 2013, he owned 13 properties in various countries around the world, including a $20 million Georgian mansion in Southampton, New York.[247][248] In 2015, he acquired a historical property in London that once belonged to writer George Eliot.[249] Bloomberg and his daughters own houses in Bermuda and stay there frequently."

Your welcome, enjoy.

That’s whats nice about this guy. He’s never been told no for so long that he’s got an extensive record of saying and doing some pretty heinous stuff. Allegedly.

There’s content to drag all your conservative liberal friends who are lining up behind him.
Even more interesting is how Bloomberg support within the Democratic Party displays the sheer hypocrisy and phonyness of its advertised ‘brand’.
