Bloomberg not so popular as presidential

Original Article

Over the weekend, I saw a ton of "Bloomberg for president" TV ads. They were good and probably very expensive. On the ground in Texas, Mr. Bloomberg got off to an unimpressive start. In fact, 45 people showed up to hear the New Yorker, according to news reports: Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg claims he is ready to spend more than $1 billion in an effort to oust President Trump, but money may not be bringing supporters to his campaign. Just 45 people showed up to Bloomberg's latest rally with TV star Judge Judy Sheindlin in Texas on Saturday, according to the New York Post.


When his ads come on, I usually hit the mute button, throw up a "bird" at the screen or both. Same with Tom Steyer. Both of them are basically saying the same thing: "We got ours, now the taxpayers will get theirs!"

He's not getting his money's worth for those ads... When it says "Mike Bloomberg has never accepted a penny from special interests" I think: HE is the "special interests".

I think the only chance that Bloomberg has is if Biden drops out and the dem establishment is casting about for another candidate. The only way the front runner would drop out is if he did something really stupid. Since this is crazy Uncle Joe, the odds are high that that will happen. The Leftist candidates are ramping up the pressure on Biden since the actual primary voting is beginning. He doesn't react well to pressure. They better watch out. He may challenge them to a pushup contest. Or give them a poke in the nose out behind the schoolhouse. I would pay good money to see Biden poke Bernie in the nose.

That NY nurse on the Bloomberg health care commercials does not wear well either. Last thing I want is a mouthy nurse telling me what to do. His hidden message is that he put 700,000 people on Medicaid (How many has President Trump taken off Medicaid through jobs and prosperity? We'll never know from the MSM.) His definition of "reproductive health" for woman is really abortion. Finally, do you want a President who tells you how to live your life? For example, poor people should be taxed to death because if you let them have their money THEY make bad choices. No guns, no big gulps, no cars, Green new deal, etc. NO THANK YOU BLOOMBERG. I like America great, like it is now.

Nanny Bloomberg ran off hte rails as soon as he claimed Cali is a great role model for the rest of the nation. Seriously? He just wants what he cannot have, though he thinks he has enough money to buy it. Problem is, the public has his number, and has had it for a long time. Mini Mike is a great name for him.

A governor and the state legislature put people on medicaid, not a mayor. Bloomberg is a liar,and so is that nurse. The little mayor is an annoyance, nothing else. Ross Perot, as an independent, promised to get government more responsive to the people. "I'm Ross, and you're the boss" was a catchy slogan. He even went so far as to say all households should be wired to D.C., and people should vote on policy issues, to tell Congress and the President what to do. That was simple-minded and silly, but it had a certain appeal. The little mayor is the opposite of Ross Perot.

His ads are like vanity puff pieces and he is visually quite unattractive. Ditto Steyer. I don’t like to look at either of them. Bloomie’s ads during the National Championship college game last night were literally buried in a plethora of ads for products of all kinds. Went by so fast, there was no need to fast forward or mute. Whoosh. Gone. Had to have cost him a lot. It will be the same during the Super Bowl when only the clever ads gain any attention. Amusing ads. His are neither clever nor amusing. Dull, dull, dull. And painfully choreographed and staged. Ick.

Bloomberg (and Steyer) aren't any different than the rest of the Democratic field. They just have money. They have to show a real alternative to what is running for office to gain any traction. Look at their ads. It is easy to imagine Biden, Sanders, or Warren saying EXACTLY THE SAME THINGS. Yawn!!! There is no difference! Much of what Bloomberg is proposing was already being done by Obama. Really have to wonder if Bloomberg was influencing Obama. He's a lot like Soros. Agree that Bloomberg (and Steyer) are special interests. Rather than donate to other candidates, Bloomberg decided to run for President himself. After all, if Trump could become President, Bloomberg thinks he can too.

I have been seeing his ads for a few weeks. They are well done but all have one very glaring omission. While the theme is "Mike will get it done" Mike never says what he will do. No one knows better than Mini Mike that the American people don't want his brand of Nanny State idiocy.

In 2001, life long liberal Democrat, Mike Bloomberg changed his party registration from Democrat to Republican to run for NYC Mayor. The NYC Republican party was thrilled. He knew if he remained a Democrat he would never win a Democrat primary. He was elected Mayor in November of 2001 for only one reason. Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, America's Mayor, put his arm around little Mike and said this is my guy. Vote for him. Bloomberg spent about $74 million on that race and won the election against Democrat liberal Mark Green, by only about 40,000 votes which was a very close election. As mayor, he was an incredible spendthrift and as we all know became Mayor Nanny. But he did keep all of the public safety successes of the incredible Giuliani administration. Stupid he's not. In 2005, he was elected a second time spending about $80 million against a very weak candidate Fernando Ferrer. Then after the corrupt NYC Council changed the term limits law allowing all of them and Bloomberg to run for a third term (New Yorkers voted TWICE to install term limits) he spent just about $100 million, running against Bill Thompson, another relatively weak candidate and won again only by about 40,000. All of that to say even in NYC he didn't have a huge following. Mike is an opportunist who because he has lots of dough will use that money to buy elections, either for himself or for his designated candidates or causes. In our blessed country thankfully he is free (for the most part--campaign finance laws aside) to buy elections as long as people vote for him or his causes legally. But, buying elections doesn't necessarily make one popular and in this populist election, little Mike is going to get his butt whipped. As a former NYC resident, I can't wait.

The Pelosi Legacy: A Barking Dog with No Teeth 10 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 1/15/2020 4:52:05 PM Post Reply
Dogs don’t bark because they’re brave, they bark because they’re scared. The same can be said for the current House Speaker. Afraid of a revolt among the even more left wing of her party, afraid of a president her party looks increasingly unlikely to defeat in November, afraid of domestic and international American success via an approach that does not comport with her more liberal views and achieved without her consent, Speaker Pelosi has entered the twilight of her political career barking at all she fears. Enacting symbolic measures, absent any import, launching an impeachment, replete with hyperbole and hyper-gesticulation, yet devoid of any impeachable offense.

At the beginning of his remarks, Mast likened the decision to kill Soleimani to taking out a machine gun nest. "I look at Soleimani as a terrorist machine gun nest, really. He’s been spraying rounds at the U.S. for many years on many different fronts," he said. "You want to ask is [an attack] imminent?

A sure sign that Tuesday was an overall good day was evident when creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested — again. A development that prompted Donald Trump Jr. to engage in a little schadenfreude. Avenatti was arrested by Internal Revenue Service agents Tuesday evening in Los Angeles, during a break in a State Bar Court disciplinary hearing over allegations the controversial attorney scammed a client out of $840,000, Fox News reported. When the hearing resumed, Avenatti was nowhere to be found. His attorneys called for a sidebar with the judge and said that their client would not be able to return due to circumstances related to a criminal matter in Orange County.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is under fire for a “deliberate” attempt to “upstage” President Trump as he signed “Phase One” of a long-awaited trade deal with China. Pelosi chose to announce the impeachment managers for Trump’s upcoming Senate trial at a press conference at the Capitol on Wednesday, just before the president signed the “historic” US-China trade deal at a ceremony with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He. [Video] Fox Business host Stuart Varney slammed Pelosi for what he says is her intentional attempt to distract from what Trump has touted as a “very large and comprehensive” deal following a nearly two-year-long trade war with China.

Unlike House Democrats, who used unfair rules to prevent their Republican colleagues from having any say in the chamber’s impeachment proceedings last year, Senate Republicans appear intent on ensuring their colleagues are granted a say. And so on Tuesday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz reportedly pitched the idea of “witness reciprocity,” an innovative solution that calls for each side being allowed to call an equal number of witnesses to testify in President Donald Trump’s upcoming trial. If Senate Democrats were to choose to call former Trump administration National Security Adviser John Bolton, for instance, Republicans would, in turn, be allowed to call, say, former Vice President Joe Biden or his son Hunter.

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that two House chairmen who led President Donald Trump's impeachment inquiry will be among the House prosecutors for Trump's Senate trial. They are Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Jerry Nadler, chair of the Judiciary Committee. Trump was impeached by the Democratic-led House last month on charges of abuse of power over his pressure on Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden as Trump withheld aid from the country. He was also charged with obstructing Congress’ ensuing probe.
