Bloomberg is the Democrats’ best chance

It seems to me that Bloomberg is now the one to beat. He took some flak from Warren and others but merely flesh wounds. The Democrats care nothing at all about moral failings. They want power, and he can give it to them. He is the Democrat version of Trump. He may have not a policy thought in his head that will make things better but will work well with the Deep State. He was the mayor of New York so he knows something about politics, and he did set up Bloomberg media so he knows something about running a business and even something about managing an economy. And he is a man who cannot be embarrassed. And the Democrats do not want Sanders.

Start here:

And he already has quite a large number of ads he has already done with many more to come.

Then add this: Bloomberg isn’t beaten: The politicians of America are for sale to their highest donor.

Bloomberg is in the Democratic nomination race for as long as he wants to be. The longer he stays in the race, the greater the amount of money he’ll spread around. The more he spends, the more the party managers and the senators and the governors and, though they’re far too high-minded to admit it, the media will come to see his candidacy as a fact that’s going to go the distance, and a reality to which the smart money should accommodate itself in case Bloomberg’s candidacy becomes a payday.

And from Drudge.


BLOOMBERG VOWS TO KEEP FIGHTING
DEM DEBATE RECORD RATINGS
ANOTHER ONE NEXT WEEK

And from Instapundit:

THE HINDEN-BLOOMBERG! NYC mayor goes up in flames at Vegas debate.

Or does he? As John Podhoretz writes in the New York Post, “The thing is, even if the entire night had been the epic disaster the first hour suggested it would be, Bloomberg isn’t going anywhere — and he is likely only to increase his insane level of spending to do what he can to erase memories of his performance.”

As repulsive as he is, among the Democrats he is the least repulsive and has a ton of money to spend.

    I suspect 3rd party candidates to do well if Bloomberg gets the nod.
    BTW Warren essentially endorsed Trump over Bloomberg – comedy gold!

    The Democrats care nothing at all about moral failings. They want power, and he can give it to them.

    The Obama presidency was the Democratic Party’s heroin overdose: a huge power rush that may end up killing the party as it has unleashed an avalanche of far-left lunacy (open borders, love of socialism, the death of freedom) that’s repulsive to middle America. Bloomberg will get the nomination by pretending he’s for the party’s electoral suicide to placate the fascist, feral base.

    The only way the Democrats can win the 2020 election is to cancel it and abolish democracy.

    So they aren’t even bothering to conceal the Occupation anymore?

  4. Robber Baron

    Bloomberg needs to watch this and learn.

  5. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    The threat to Trump is Warren. But the Democrats are too stupid to understand why.

  6. Judge Dredd

    Trump can only hope the Mini-Bloomer is his opponent. Bring on the Trump-slide.

  7. Scott Osmond

    Bloomberg will buy the nom. DJT will beat him like a rented mule in the debates. I’d like to think that he would also beat him like a redheaded stepchild in the election but with the blacks on the democrat voter plantation and women playing out the handmaids tale fantisies I just don’t know. Throw in all the graveyards opening to vote for whoever the dems put up and DJT has still a uphill battle.

  8. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Apart from Buttplug and Koblucher who are not in any way likely to be the nominees, the dumbocrats are left with four utterly preposterous unelectable collectivist geriatrics, one of whom will be gifted the impossible task of attempting to dethrone a rampant Orange Florida Man (Bad).

    The entire goat rodeo has rendered parody/satire irrelevant.

    Bloomberg vs Trump would mean you could save a lot of money on ballot paper.
    Just have one choice: New York Leftist.

    Hld-why won’t Bloomberg be the third party candidate?Or Sanders for that matter if he is denied the nomination?Neither of them are exactly loyal democrats.Trump must be hoping for such an outcome.

    Hld-why won’t Bloomberg be the third party candidate?

    Starting a new party from scratch is difficult and expensive. Why bother when you can buy a used one… cheap?

    Or Sanders for that matter if he is denied the nomination?

    It cost the Dem party exactly one house on a lake to get Bernie to fold last time. Little Mike can afford to buy him the whole lake.

    Neither of them are exactly loyal democrats.Trump must be hoping for such an outcome.

    Technically, Bernie is an Independent. He is running on the Dem ticket because there is no ‘Independent’ party structure to support him and he caucuses with the Dems.

    Bloomberg changes parties with the seasons. He was a Republican when he was elected Mayor of NYC but he knows Trump would beat the hell out of him in a Rep primary. He’s hoping to buy the Dem party infrastructure so he’ll have a chance in the main event.

    FiveThiryEight completely blew the 2016 election predictions but their take on things can be interesting.

    Warren is only a threat to Pence. Warr’en Pence – geddit?

    Since we have not seen much of Amy K, I would be loath to discount such a potential candidate. From what little we have seen, she presents as the bland, moderately-spoken, middle of the road candidate who won’t frighten the horses.

    Until she makes an utter fool of herself like the other potentials, I would count her as the dark horse, possibly winning the nomination as a “Beetle Bomb” by Spike Jones (from 1:13)

    It seems to me that Bloomberg is now the one to beat.

    Yes, the Democrat heirarchy will already see that. Bloomberg is the least-left candidate, has a good record as NYC mayor, has unlimited money to spend, and hates Trump enough to stick with it, even though he is 78 years old and would thus be older on inauguration than any other president has been on retirement – including Trump if he got another 4 years. BTW how do these dotards even stand up for two hours let alone slug it out with one another?

    But Bloomberg’s trouble is the Democrat base. For their priorities, he is worse than Trump. He really is very sexist and nasty in personal relations. He is more patronising to non-whites. He is even richer and far more brazen about spending his own money to buy votes.

    As for what a sensible person could think, he would likely be far better in the job than any of the other Dems. He has a lifetime of high-level management experience, and is as tough as nails. He is, however, a bit of a fool in a New York liberal way, so there would be heaps of taxpayer money wasted on global warming and other fads which Trump instinctively sees through.

    Bloomberg may be the pragmatic choice, but Bernie is so much like the stereotypic grumpy neighbour in a 70s sitcom (although actually rumoured to have been Maude Findlay’s toyboy in the 70s…….) that a contest between him and Trump would be very, very entertaining.

  21. mh

    Bloomberg would be the most competent amongst them, but has a few things against him. One of the main ones is his agenda would be a pre-Trump agenda. Trump has proven he is an America first president, whereas Bloomberg would have to argue his policies are also pro America, obviously. Not easy to argue that unpicking Trump’s first term achievements is pro America and not globalist.

  22. mh

    …and he did set up Bloomberg media so he knows something about running a business

    Nice understatement, Steve.

    He’s the world’s 9th richest man.
