Oh PLEASE...probably more like...KILL MORE BABIES!! KILL MORE BABIES!!!
Bloomberg is an Independent. He left the Republican party several years ago. He can go dig some graves as far as I am concerned!
is no Global Warming.
Eisenhower warned us about grant-happy scientists in 1961.
Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers. The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present -- and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
Holding Bloomberg’s endorsement back till the last minute?
As far as final salvos go, meh.
Colin Powell used the same trick. Earlier he said he was undecided just to tease, and now he comes out for O again, big surprise.
He wanted to create the illusion that he was thinking about it.
Methinks the effect of that particular endorsement already had been “priced into the market.”
Colin Powell ranks near the top of back-stabbing traitors.
Seeing him and bloomy come out for O the same day made me think of what they have in common. Both needed to use the R party to get what they wanted at a time in the past.
In Bloomy’s case he wanted to run for mayor but NYC Dems wouldnt give him the nomination, so he got the NYC Rs to do it
IN Powells case Dems were doing nothing for him career wise so he got ahead sucking up to Rs. How many here would think he was great pick for SofS now, compared to 2001 when GWB nominated him?
But now that he no longer needs Rs and his Bro got the nomination he slips the knife in the back. And its not just race, Powell has always been a lib.

Yes, yes, and yes.
Some of GWB's policies and appointments looked like they were designed to get votes in the short term. (Also, in Powell's case, he probably resents being sent to the UN with the WMD story.) The worst one, amnesty, failed, but that option is still available to both parties, which to politicians is like an unexploited gold mine that you have to mine before your enemy does.
