Why Bloomberg? He’s less pathetic than the rest, slightly

People are amazed as to how Mike Bloomberg zoomed up so fast as a legitimate contender. 

Yes, the money he’s spending; practically saying so himself that he’s prepared to buy the nomination and the presidency.

That could work. Money can’t buy love, but nearly everything else.

Or, maybe he’s being taken seriously because the rest of the field is so absolutely pathetic.

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king…or gets the nomination.

Poor Democrats – they scan the horizon, and what have they got? Warren, the woman who lied about everything is nearly out of the picture. Unless she comes up with another whopper, like maybe she’s genetically tied to Abraham Lincoln, though most people in her situation choose Napoleon.

So then there’s the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Buttigieg, who left the town in shambles, as Democrats usually do. 

Almost forgot. The mayor of NYC, de Blasio, another also-ran, who intended to do for the country what he keeps doing against New York. He left the field without a trace.

New Yorkers wish he’d run again, just to get him out of town.

So what’s left? 

The top tier appears to be the South Bend kid, and Commissar Bernie Sanders, a proud Socialist who promises bread lines and other tricks he learned honeymooning in the Soviet Union.

Biden? Even his best friend, Obama, can’t stand him. 

No gravitas, among any of them – but then, Bloomberg.

After all, he was mayor of NYC for not two, but three terms, and, following up on the good deeds of Mayor Rudy Giuliani, he did a pretty good job.

The best part was keeping “stop and frisk,” which cleaned up the city and reduced crime by some 40 percent. Smart move.

But then, the dumb moves. 

Bloomberg has gone and disavowed “stop and frisk.” It was racist, he says. He’s sorry, won’t do it again, and he is saying so on an apology tour, aimed at black churches.

He is apologizing for nearly everything else he’s done in his life, which shows lack of character, you would think, but then, he is a Democrat.


He’s sorry for what he has said about women, men, children, farmers, blacks, the rich, the poor, foreigners, Latinos and citizens, and it’s only Monday.
He’s prepared to expunge his entire career and legacy – so long as it gets him the cigar. Too typical.

Regrets…he’s had a few.

He’s sorry for what he has said about women, men, children, farmers, blacks, the rich, the poor, foreigners, Latinos and citizens, and it’s only Monday.

He has insulted nearly everybody and many of his comments are downright stupid.

Is this the kind of man we want for President of the United States?

Absolutely not.

But is he the kind of person who rates the top ticket for the Democrats?

Absolutely. All things considered, he’s the best they’ve got.

He’s all they’ve got.
