The Bloomberg Factor

Friends, is there any doubt that what Democratic primary voters are pining for is a rich, old, white, male, centrist candidate who only recently became a Democrat?  Uh, yeah.  Good luck with that, Mike.  It amazes me that a well-educated and extremely successful man like Bloomberg could be this naive.  Be that as it may, he's in the race, I believe his only impact will be to draw votes away from Biden and Buttigieg, but mainly Biden.  In other words, he's effectively running to make Elizabeth Warren the Democratic candidate -- so thanks, Mike!  With your help, the Dems will nominate the biggest loser, and Trump might actually put together that landslide that his most fanatical fans have been talking about...  Hooray!

In other news, you heard it here first: the polling is trending against the Democrats' impeachment con job.  As time has gone on, Republicans have successfully muddied the waters with counter-charges, and they've convinced many Americans, especially independents, that the inquiry is a frame-up and the Bidens might just be guilty, after all.  Or, from another perspective, Americans have simply gone back to their partisan corners, as they always do, and half the country wants Trump's head on a platter, while the other half thinks he's the greatest thing since sliced bread.  In truth, though, there is a political center in America, and guess what: it's not crazy about impeachment!  Dems -- what's next?


  1. Dr. Waddy: Ahh, Bloomburg, the essential RINO,with perhaps the exception of the increasingly menacing Sen. Romney (who I fully expect to argue and vote for President Trump's conviction should there be a trial).

    We had the RINO and (by definition) apologetic Amo Houghton "representing" us in this real America Congressional district and bleating "well, I don't want to be 'judgemental'". Consider Chekov's plays about the late 19th century Russian middle class, which had no understanding of the approach of hell itself and was snootily disdainful of those who did.

    Yeah, but of course if Bloomburg were to secure the nomination (the possibility of which, probably, in his mind is summarized by " why if HE could do it, then surely I can") he would surely choose a "politically correct" running mate (though it could be Klobuchar, who really would help him).

    But, as all leftists and their "nonjudgemental" toady RINOS do, they underestimate Donald Trump. He is an hombre!

  2. Dr. Waddy: I agree we should regard Bloomberg's candicacy, advancing as you maintain, the candidacy of leftist wraith Warren, as good news.And I would guess the majority of Americans are repelled by the Dem's antiTrump crusade. Why? "Because Trump says what I want to say" and as much as the left disdains this it cannot deny it!

  3. Hmm. Are the majority of Americans repelled by TDS? I'm not sure. Polls aren't showing that...but polls may be missing some shy Trumpers. There's one way to know for sure: hold an election!

    I personally disagree that Romney will vote to remove Trump. The wind by then will be blowing in the other direction, and Romney, much as he despises Trump, is still a Utah Republican. I think he'll bellyache and stay on side.

    Bloomberg's VP? Who knows, and who cares, because he's not getting anywhere NEAR the nomination. Unless he runs as an independent, his VP preferences are of purely academic interest. I see, by the way, that in recent polls Warren is flagging. Maybe it would be more accurate to say that ALL OF THEM are flagging, with the possible exception of Buttigieg. It will be interesting to see if Bloomberg can even get in the mix...
