That and because New Yawk wants Barry to give them 6 billion taxpayer dollars.

ROFL. This guy is a complete idiot.

This is what you get when you elect an @sshole as your mayor whose top priorities include bans on smoking, trans-fats, and cups of soda larger than 16 ounces.

No offense to New York City Freepers, but I wouldn't care if the power never came back on in that sh!t-hole.

Welp, there goes any chance for Romney to win New York.

This guy should never be allowed to win as a Republican nominee to any office anywhere.

So, basically, he’s saying that he wants higher gas prices, more government involvement in your life, and, oh yeah, screw you coal industry!

Sounds about right.

The reason Bloomberg gives is absolutely astounding. A hurricane hits NY, and that means climate change caused it.

Jeez...it's come to having to endorse the dim pRez in order to receive federal disaster relief funds.

Rudy! Please run for mayor of NYC, again. I heard a rumor a few weeks ago that he might.

...from an insider. He’s notoriously known as Nanny Bloomberg by his security people. He fusses constantly, straightening ties,primping handkerchiefs,fixing collars,can’t seem to leave any alone...excessively touching and meddling where he don’t belong......

Fool. If his vote can be swayed that easily, then he has no core values.

That said, I think he always intended to vote for Obama. This just gives him cover.

Bloomberg also knows that New York has two Democratic U.S. Senators and a House delegation that is almost all Democrats, so if Romney wins there is about a 0% chance that NYC will get a single dime of Federal money to clean up after Hurricane Sandy.

Apparently, he has time for presidential politics and Sandy recovery. Particularly, crafting his endorsement in the midst of the disaster recovery. Chris Christie has no time for such nonsense.

One faggot endorsing another?

Who would have thunk it....

Besides, he wants your tax money flowing to his stinking, sinking, parasite-infested, over-taxed City.

What a suck-ass (literally, in his case)

What a surprise. So, the translation to that is that all the chaos we see in the news is just fear porn to drive people to vote against the republicans?

Did this change any minds? Nope, I doubt it. New Yorkers were all going to vote for Obama before, and they’re still going to vote for him now. And nobody else cares what Bloomberg thinks.

Bloomers and Christie are both pro-abort, pro-homo, and pro-muslim.

Their ideology intersects a larger area of 0bama’s ideology than Romney’s.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsing Obama is about as predictable as Reverend Wright endorsing Barry - and just about as influential. Manhattan is a lost cause for Republicans - and sanity.

Considering I’m reading more and more reports of the cluster**** going on in NYC and the outlying Burroughs with how things are being handled this endorsement could be a kiss of death.

He thinks he’s protecting his wealth. Support Obama, and Obama wins, he keeps a bit more. Romney wins, he keeps even more. Don’t support Obama, and he gets hounded... Cowardice in action.

I read on a sports board that Bloomie could have saved NYC by building a wall of Big Gulps, but sadly he made them illegal so there were none to be had.

bloomberg isn't worth 6 billion but when you are losing a race like obama is... and face it people... he is losing... desperation takes over and it isn't obama’s stash anyway... it is borrowed chicom dollars that 10 future generations of Americans will have to pay back.

No surprise from this former moderate republican. Same as Chuck Hagel endorsing Kerrey, Colin Powell endorsing Obama, Arlen Specter, Lincoln Chafee, Jim Jeffords, Charlie Crist, etc.

Moderate republicans are democrats. Let them run as such and stop watering down our party.
