I can’t get too excited about Michael Bloomberg’s genuflecting to Big Brother government, always with the best intentions, of course. He may have run for his third mayoral term as a ‘Republican’ but he is really just another billionaire (18 billion, to be exact) ‘limousine liberal’ posing as a benefactor that wants to help the unenlightened masses with his great wisdom and deep concern - while steadily robbing them of their freedom. I’ll pass, Bloomie.
No he didn't. He left the Republican Party in 2007 and ran for his third term two years later.
The GOP is no longer affiliated with Nanny McBloomberg.
