You missed a point.

Funny thing is, I can't see how he could win the Democritter nomination. I do think there's an out side chance he could win the general as an indie. I think that's where his money would come more into play.

He's got this much of a chance with the Woke Democrat Party of 2019 to be their candidate:

He's missed most of the debates. That's got to piss off the other monkeys.

I own a service business and was asked to provide a quote for service at his home and declined. One of only two times in 22 years I have done that.

Bloomberg Launches a Bold, Unique Strategy for Clenching the Democratic Nomination

While most of the 2020 Democrats are focused on Iowa and New Hampshire, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is taking a different approach. Because he is entering the race so late in the game, his team has decided to skip focusing on the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary. Instead, his team will focus solely on Super Tuesday, where voters in 15 states and abroad cast their primary votes.

According to the Associated Press, Bloomberg's team realizes the strategy is bold but his wealth can help him overcome that obstacle. After all, Bloomberg is one of the wealthiest men in the world, with a net worth of $53 billion.

“If we run, we are confident we can win in states voting on Super Tuesday and beyond, where we will start on an even footing,” advisor Howard Wolfson said.

His staff is rushing to file paperwork to qualify to get on the ballot in Super Tuesday states, like Arkansas, which deadline is fast approaching. It was announced on Friday that he will be on the ballot in Alabama, which launched the billionaire's official presidential campaign.

Bloomberg has repeatedly said he would not run for president but, after looking at the crop of candidates, decided to enter the race. According to the AP, he wasn't feeling confident in any of the contenders's ability to beat President Donald Trump in the general election.

Democrats, however, don't see how his strategy can be successful

“I don’t think you can just hopscotch around the calendar to suit your own political purposes,” Democratic strategist Bill Carrick said. “You skip the early states, you’re going to have a difficult time. I don’t see any evidence that strategy ever works.”

Super Tuesday is set to take place on March 3, 2020 and includes: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Democrats Abroad, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia.

Isn't Super Tuesday mostly southern states? Somehow I don't think he'll play to well in the south. Then again, it's the Dem primaries, so, who knows?

I think this is fair. It is going to be super funny hearing him crow on about "taxing the rich".

Cool deal. He can steal the nomination and the progressives can run Bernie or Liz under a third party flag. Bring the chaos.

The difference between Mike Bloomberg and Elizabeth Warren/Bernie Sanders is that Michael Bloomberg is trying to buy the election with his money, and Warren/Sanders are trying to buy it with yours.

It's a good point.
Furthermore, Mike Bloomberg is very concerned that Elizabeth Warren wants to buy the election with HIS money.
Poor, poor rich guy... Big Grin

Will Mike Bloomberg pick up the Biden vote?
Will Biden survive the "impeachment inquiry"?

Stay tuned ...

As Warren Fades, Is It Down to Bernie vs. Biden?

His adverts have been running in non-prime time here in S.E. Michigan for a couple days, now. Long ones, too.

His ads started showing up two days ago here in Houston. He is very proud of his antigun group support and features this in the middle of his ad.

He and his wealth are a great threat to the RKBA. He needs to be defeated specifically because of this dangerous point of view.

I heard someone mention on Fox last night that he is worth 55 billion, Damn! A quick internet search appears to validate that figure. As such he can afford to spend the reported $99M on electronic ads and still not really impact his nest egg.

No kidding. I saw his first one last night on a local Philly channel, and I thought it would never end. Bunch of cliched, boring rhetoric of course too.

He is spending almost as much on just this "rollout" as the other candidates have spent YTD combined!
But I doubt he gets much traction out of it.

Holder...I predict that if he does, his campaign will be fast and furious. And unsuccessful.

When Bloomberg speaks does anyone else hear Dustin Hoffman's Rain Man character, Raymond Babbitt, speaking? I expect to hear Bloomberg say "Kmart sucks" or "30 minutes to Wapner" or

Bloomberg will spend literally Billions to win and/or support the Dem candidate. Focus on this, please.
What should we DO about this?? I know where I will be contributing my funds.

Vote for Donald J. Trump, of course!

Sorry to post an alternative thread of late. Did not see this one until just now. But I do believe that Bloomberg is the number one threat. Be aware of this. This is serious business. Bloomberg will spend BILLIONS to win.
