The guy has a shitload of money….
He’s been throwing it around like seeds on a lawn…
But he ain’t getting to many seedlings….
While he was the Mayor of the ‘Big Apple’ NYC for 12 years (As a Republican)?
(And earned the low marks from NY City blacks for his crime fighting policies that seemed to target a disproportionate number of blacks))
That was NO match for the Money Mike in the big leagues….
Hampered by his invisible debate performances?
The guy has gone nowhere ….
Oh, he’s got some poll number mentions…
And now he’s on some ballots…
But in the same style as Rudy Giuliani?
He might have missed the train….
This dog is wondering when will the Democratic establishment types pick up the phone and try to persuade Money Mike to give it up and help bankroll Joe Biden if he REALLY IS about getting rid of a possible Donald Trump second term…
Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg insisted on Tuesday that his ongoing presidential campaign would not end up boosting Sen. Bernie Sanders’s left-wing campaign by splitting the vote of more moderate Democrats.
“I’m not helping Bernie Sanders. I’m trying to help myself,” he told POLITICOas he campaigned in Florida.
Criticism of Bloomberg has spiked in in recent days after the race’s two other prominent moderates — Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg — ended their bids over the last 48 hours and endorsed Joe Biden.
Bloomberg, who entered the race late last year when Biden began to flag in the polls, said he planned to stay in the race despite signs of a resurgence from the former vice president.
“I got in because I thought that I could beat Donald Trump and I thought I could do the job of being president,” he said Tuesday. “That’s why I’m here and that’s why I started and that’s where we’re going to wind up — in the White House.”
The former mayor had not yet appeared on ballots until Tuesday. But he asserted that criticism he would siphon votes away from Biden, the only other moderate left in the race, went both ways: “If you think I’m gonna siphon from him, he’s siphoning from me.”
Bloomberg later complained more definitively that it was Biden who was “taking votes away from me,” telling reporters in a news conference that “it goes in both directions” and bristling at questions about whether he would drop out of the race.
“Have you asked Joe whether he’s going to drop out?” he asked. “When you ask him that, then you can call me.”
But Bloomberg also appeared to acknowledge that he has an extremely narrow path to the nomination, explaining that he is now banking on a contested Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee this summer, at which no candidate receives a majority of the pledged delegates needed to secure the nomination.
Asked to predict which states he would win outright on Tuesday, he conceded that he might not win any…
