Posted on 11/01/2012 12:43:45 PM PDT by TexasGunLover
In a surprise announcement, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said Thursday that Hurricane Sandy had reshaped his thinking about the presidential campaign and that as a result he was endorsing President Obama.

This is a surprise? I don’t think so.
this should help Romney
While Dumberg has always been it for himself this is a “30 pieces of silver “ deal
Mayor Bloomberg’s certainly got a point.
After all, there were no hurricanes before grant-happy scientists invented Global Warming, and Obama - who’s already walked on water and fed the masses with three fish and a loaf of bread - will guide us all to the Promised Land where there is no Global Warming.
You can get anything you want at the government handout window, because everything can be blamed on ‘Climate Change’.
Too cold? Here’s a blanket.
Too hot? Here’s your government A/C.
Too wet? Here’s your government umbrella.
Climate Change solves all problems of government!
Bloomberg is mentally deranged. His crusades against soft drinks and baby formula scream that he is getting senile.
Kind of warms the cockles of my butt cheeks.
Mary Poppins Doomberg is a loony nanny. If it ain’t salt shakers, it’s “Big Gulps”. If it ain’t “Big Gulps”, it’s “global warming”. The boy needs to lighten up and practice dropping the ball for New Year’s Eve. He has too much time on his hands that he’s using to be a pain in the *** to the normal people who work for a living and just want to be left alone.

Sandy must have rained Kool-Aid.

Oh, yeah? Well Bloomie, if this IS global warming in action, how come the air behind this storm is so friggin’ COLD? How come WV got snowed under? You’re on, genius!/s;)
Bloomie is such a whore...
Did Boehner give Obama a blank check?...
WHo is the JOHN.?.. Boehner or Obama?..
Just who is blowing whom?..
Every hurricane is terrible to the people that it hits. Hurricane Sandy was no different from any other hurricane in that respect.
By historical standards, Hurricane Sandy was a relatively minor hurricane (Category 1 when it made landfall). What made it so damaging was where it made landfall - a very high population area with a high density of oceanfront development.
It has been over seven years since a Category 3 or greater hurricane has made landfall in the U.S. This is the longest period of no major hurricanes since we began measuring them.
We are constantly told that the past 10 years of mild summers and hard winters is not evidence against Global Warming. We are also told that the seven year stretch with no major hurricanes is also not evidence against Global Warming. The fact that every Global Warming model ten years ago predicted annual increases in warming and annual increases in the rate and intensity of hurricanes is irrelevant.
And yet, every time there is a hurricane or any other extreme weather event (which we naturally have all the time somewhere in the world) it is immediately proclaimed as yet more proof of Global Warming.
It is almost certain that the next seven years will have more severe hurricanes than the last seven. It is simply the law of averages. It is also certain that every hurricane will be proclaimed as proof of Global Warming. It is simply the law of Global Warming politics.
Bumberg endorsing NYC’s further decline with big ZerO. I’m one of those who think God allowed this awful storm as a wake up call to the arrogant and godless. They’re not learning their lession it seems.
A decision based on emotion rather than fact and reason.
A surprise? To whom? Not to me.
That does it for me, I’m taking my Romney signs and changing my registration to IDIOT!
Rich gay dwarves for Obama!
I’m surprised Boehner hasn’t come right out with a 0bammy endorsement. The Weeper likely doesn’t want Romney to win.
Makes sense. If you’re undecided, after thinking about the economy and Libya, then Sandy should make up your mind.
Could fear be the emotion (of unrest in da’hood?)
Born-and-bred New Yorker here.
Bloomberg is a anus of epic proportions.
I choose that term because in Latin, “anus” has two distinct meanings:
1. the terminus of the digestive tract and 2. an old biddie.
Bloomberg is both.
Hey Bloomberg, if you want to help fight against Global Warming, DO NOT TURN NEW YORK’S POWER BACK ON.
The soda pop munchkin speaks!
Bloomie should deny any permission to rebuild in flooded areas until climate change is proven to be halted and reversed. That would be, maybe 100 years or so for sufficient evidence. All of the displaced businesses and people can just wait it out.
The way I see it is that there was no threat to the New England coast until they put up those stupid windmills and changed the wind patterns (a theory just as plausible as climate change, Don’t you think?). Did any of these awesome scientists bother to examine what thousands of windmills all over the world do to existing wind patterns? I didn’t think so. This is the argument I have personally used against my “global warming” friends. Instead of helping fight global warming they made it worse than if they just left it alone. They really don’t know what to say. I am a little surprised that I have not heard anyone else make this argument but feel free to use it if need be. I am not a scientist but this seems to make sense.
In your endorsement you admit "climate change" may not have anything to do with it. Indeed, Force 1 hurricanes have hit the US before but NYC has usually been spared. Do you really think reducing our carbon footprint would show any benefits within the next 50 years? If so, you're the only one. A US President cannot stop China, India and Brazil from cancelling out anything we would do.
Obama has done nothing on climate change and not even mentioned it in the debates. His "green energy" projects consist of wasting taxpayer dollars on pet projects for his supporters. The companies go bankrupt or the workers sit around playing cards and we are stuck with the bill.
Just admit you're fellating the President so he'll feed you $Bs in taxpayer money to compensate for your lack of preparation,
Bloomberg is proof that you can be stark, staring insane, and still be mayor of NYC.
Regardless, Bloomberg is the same idiot he's always been - a big government nanny who hates the 2nd Amendment and any other manifestations of freedom.
Too bad Bloombottom did not spend the night of the hurricane inspecting the deepest portions of the NYC subway system.
He would have done NYC the biggest favor possible.
Ozone Mike backs Obama over CLIMATE CHANGE?
...even after it was discovered he was cooling his parked SUV by lowering an air conditioner from his upstairs office with extension chord so he cool the his gas guzzler waiting at the curb below?
Is this the same Bloomberg we are talking about?
Chris Christie and Bloomberg should meet Obama at a New York Bathouse , they have both fallen in love with Obama’s backside.
When he runs against Hillary in 2016 you will not only vote for him, you will be his cheerleader.
Dole/McCain/Romney/Bloomberg.... All fits
W0W! NY will probably go obama now.
What this is all about is FEMA money. Bloomberg figures if obama loses he’ll still be able to hit him up for FEMA money before he leaves office. But obama is between a rock and a hard place. What will Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnisota think about that?
This just cries out for a Paul Shanklin treatment of that famous Guthrie song.
“ichael R. Bloomberg said Thursday that Hurricane Sandy had reshaped his thinking about the presidential campaign”
Right, so he was ready to endorse Romney but Sandy dumped a lot of water on New York city and he has to support Mr Status Quo because, what, exacty? Obama will actually make the seas recede? But if he was going to do that, why didnt he do it in his FIRST four years?
That’s the dumbest reason for an endorsement that I have ever heard in my entire life. This is dumber than the ‘lady parts’ endrosement. Dumber than Madonna’s endorsement. Dumber than the ‘he has to finish what he started’ excuse (Obama is a one man wrecking crew).
Bloomberg is not an idiot, so I have to conclude he is lying.
Maybe they should stop messing around with geoengineering (just one example, Bill Gates in New Mexico) and then we wouldn’t be seeing “climate change.” As per usual with idiotic goobt-sponsored/supported projects, they backfire. They’re dropping aerosols on the entire planet to combat fake-global warming, and in the process, baking and dehydrating us to death. All of the leftists and one-world-goobt types are beyond evil.
So, Don Quixote had the right idea after all!!
I would think the mayor of a city with several million residents currently living in the dark, would be grateful for any electricity right about now, even the kind generated by cheap dirty coal.
Actually you are on the right track. Bloomberg is a pain in the ass actually.
