News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Sat. Sept. 7, 2013: One of the most disliked Mayors in New York City history just made one of the most insulting comments any Mayor of New York City ever has towards someone running for mayor.
He, however, provided yet one more important and useful reason for New Yorkers to vote for Bill de Blasio to be our next mayor.
Here is Bloomberg in the new issue of New York Magazine as presented in the New York Times Saturday:
“In the interview, with New York magazine, Mr. Bloomberg said that he considered it racist of Mr. de Blasio to promote his mixed-race family. Mr. de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, is African-American and their teenage son, Dante, has appeared in his father’s campaign ads. Asked what was racist about the campaign, Mr. Bloomberg said: “I mean he’s making an appeal using his family to gain support. I think it’s pretty obvious to anyone watching what he’s been doing.”
Of course Bloomberg is now trying to squirm out of the insult saying …
“It’s comparable to me pointing out that I’m Jewish in attracting the Jewish vote.”
Not close Bloomberg. Bloomberg at least should have the decency to apologize to de Blasio and his family. And what Bloomberg should also be doing is apologizing as well for buying the mayoralty three times with the most excessive campaign spending of any candidate for any office in American in history. The fact is Bloomberg never would have been mayor if we had sane campaign spending limits.
What is really going on here is that Mike Bloomberg is so upset that de Blasio is gaining so much support by being critical of Bloomberg as Mayor, that Bloomberg is out of control with hatred toward de Blasio for his commanding lead.
Michael Bloomberg just gave everyone yet another reason to vote for de Blasio on Tuesday, September 10!
Bill is just the kind of Mayor we need after Bloomberg. We need an inclusive not divisive Mayor.
Go Bill Go!
