What do you all think is Bloombergs motive for running? His stated goal of "Trump is bad, we can't afford 4 more years of him" is perhaps honest. But don't you think by him running he is weakening the other candidates? Does anyone think he has ANY chance of being the nominee?

His running seems like a loud announcement.... "The present crop of Democrats running SUCKS,".

This must be close to a record for total number of candidates running or were running.
Trump says his supporters are dumber than a sack of rocks

He doesn’t want to pay Warren’s wealth tax.

I’m kind of joking, kind of not.

Ego. Him and Trump have been
enemies since he was mayor
of NYC from 2002-13. They
butted heads all the time over
what Trump wanted. Trump
calls him 'Little Michael'
because he's short, 5' 7".
Trump is 8" taller.

We haven't elected a president
that short in 120 years. All
modern presidents have been
tall, it's more fitting the office.
If Trump and Bloomberg debate,
Bloomberg will look like a
Munchkin next to Trump,
Not good.. Bloomberg himself
said in 2007 he was too short
to run, He's correct.

He is skipping all the pre-SuperTuesday stuff, historically a loser idea. The other candidates are already weak. Biden is half-serious but Ukraine tainted. The rest are a clown car of crazies.

So why is he running? Maybe his ego thinks he can do what Trump did but he appears too lazy to do it the way Trump did it. Trump was everywhere. He got media because he took almost any interview request. Among his biggest expenses were MAGA hats.

OMG, I just heard Bloomy speak for
the first time. He has all the appeal
of a creepy retired funeral director.
He's old and he looks old. Old
and energy-less. Has he no one
around him to clue him in that
he has no appeal whatever?

The media is going nuts over the
fact he's 17 times richer than Trump
and can buy the election like Trump
did. Sorry, Trump won because he's
Trump, not because of his money.

Rush is talking about rich people
and how the public is fascinated
by them. Rush knows a lot of people
who are super rich and says way too
many of them are clueless idiots.

Bloomberg hasn't a chance, he has
no personality, and is too old and
too short. Never forget this is the
guy who banned super sized soft
drinks in NYC and it got reversed
by SCOTUS. He's a 'I wanna run
your life' guy.

Wow, that took way longer than
I thought. No, idiots never get
elected president. It's not possible,
and never will be. Do you know
what Trump is doing behind the
scenes that has Dems scared
senseless? He's dismantling
the 'good ol boy' network of
insider cronyism that has
ruled DC for decades. That
has them willing to do anything
possible to get rid of him.
