Bloomberg Being Pushed For Presidential Run?

posted on October 21, 2015

The New York Times is reporting that Michael Bloomberg is being urged by “the plutocracy” to enter the 2016 presidential race. Oh goody: another security detail-protected, gun-hating candidate to spout made-up statistics leavened with out-and-out lies about American firearms ownership. Just what we need.

With Hillary “The Australian example (forced confiscation) is worth looking at” Clinton finally out of the closet regarding her real gun-control intentions, the season does seem ripe. The Times piece quotes billionaire hedge fund investor Bill Ackman as saying of Bloomberg, “He’s all the best of Trump without the worst of Trump.” Hmmmmmm.

Perhaps more unsettling is Ackman’s observation about costs as a (non) barrier to such a Bloomberg candidacy: “It’s just one quarter’s dividend.” So, apparently, the White House should be bought simply if it can be? 

All of which reminds us painfully of Benjamin Franklin’s warning: We have “a Republic, if we can keep it.”
