News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Oct. 12, 2018: SURPRISE! Michael Bloomberg wants to be President (again).
He went so far as to register as a Democrat this week. WOW. Even though he is really a Republican/Independent /Democrat /Liberal Conservative/Monarchist – anything it takes for him to pursue his ultimate fantasy.
Appreciate his problem. Imagine you had a fortune of $30 BILLION by owning a monopoly named Bloomberg Inc. You own 20 super luxurious homes around the world, more planes and helicopters than you can keep count, a personal staff of security, butlers, maids, chefs, pilots, drivers, wardrobe assistants, body men, trainers, gardeners, shoe shiners, secretaries, and more sycophants than you can count on your payroll ….
It all gets so BORING, after a while, what is left to amuse him? Not much. All that is left is once again running for President and BORING the rest of us. Wannabe King Michael regaled us with the privilege of a photo from him on Wednesday filling out the form to become a registered DEMOCRAT.
We are truly Blessed to be in the presence of such Greatness. I must admit here in Trump’s America, a Presidential race in 2020 featuring two BS New York City Billionaires could be hilarious. “Sadly” (sic) it won’t happen.
Bloomberg has already tried numerous times to BUY becoming President. The only difference this time is he comes across looking even more desperate than ever. At 78 by the election, he knows this is his Last Hurrah. So, the rest of us must suffer. SUFFER the boredom of Bloomberg yet again.
ONLY those of us who waste our time watching too much politics. Most Americans don’t know or care who Michael Bloomberg is. And never will.
WHY this week’s timely headline …. WHO CARES?
ENOUGH Michael Bloomberg. His only purpose in this week’s episode is to provide me with a “Saturday Night Live” skit type opening here ….
A good segue to the real issue this week about Presidential politics.
About the 101 and counting other mostly so-called real Democrats running for President in 2020. Here is Washington Post’s latest list last updated back in June 2018, which means it is not up to date, but I will go with it anyway ..
In no special order except as it appears in The Post. Ready?
“Senator Cory Booker, Senator Kristen Gillibrand, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Jeff Merkley, Senator Chris Murphy, Senator Sherrod Brown, Congress member John Delaney, Congress member Tim Ryan, Congress member Tulsi Gabbard, Congress member Seth Moulton, Governor Steve Bullock, Governor John Hickenlooper, Governor Terry McAuliffe, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Governor Jay Inslee, Former Governor Deval Patrick, Mayor
Peter Buttigieg, Mayor Julian Castro. Mayor Eric Garcetti, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Mayor Bill de Blasio, Business leader Andrew Yang, Business leader Tom Steyer, Business leader Mark Cuban, Business leader Howard Schultz, Business leader Sheryl Sandberg, Celebrity Oprah Winfrey, Former VP Joe Biden, Former Missouri Sec, of State Jason Kander, Former Attorney General Eric Holder.”
That is it from WP back in June. Of course, they must now add MICHAEL BLOOMBERG and let me add “the gorilla in the room,” the one and only Hillary Clinton.
If you heard her in recent days being interviewed, she sounds like a candidate as ridiculous as the idea is. We really must add Michelle Obama, even if The Post didn’,t as she begins her national book tour. I think Taylor Swift now belongs on the list with her recent success registering voters.
The only known Democrat who may not end up on the FULL list is Anthony Weiner although he is about to be released from prison! Just maybe ….
Most of all, poor Michael Bloomberg. It doesn’t seem any of them will step aside for him, even though he is richer than all of them combined; and after he made the ultimate sacrifice – registering as a Democrat. Life is not fair!
Anyway we can look forward to mob like Presidential debates featuring the Democratic Party hopefuls and hopeless, probably beginning in early 2019, that CNN and the others may not be able to find an arena with a stage large enough to hold them all and a format that limits each of them to one sentence each, so the “debates” don’t last days rather than just too many hours.
That may not be a problem at all because they will ALL say the same thing with their one sentence …….
I AM NOT DONALD TRUMP! SO ELECT ME PRESIDENT!
That will effectively summarize all their ideas very well so far.
And that Dear Readers is the problem for the Democratic Party and our nation. The Democrats are now the party of NO new ideas and no vision for the future of the United States. It is now just the anti-Trump party.
That is why the impossible is possible again and why Donald Trump can get elected to a second term in 2020. He could not win in 2016 but he did.
All we Democrats need to do in 2020 is let the so-called leaders choose another mindless candidate whose “new idea” is: “I’m not Donald Trump.” Unless the Electoral College disappears, that is not enough.
Unless Michael Bloomberg decides on his best option to buy the country and make himself King!
