Posted on 06/19/2007 3:13:48 PM PDT by StatenIsland
Mayor Michael Bloonberg has announced that he is leaving the Republican Party, and will continue his Mayoralty as an Independent.
Looks like the blowhard is running for prez.
Ross Perot didn't 'give' us anything. President Bush didn't run a strong enough campaign to convince some to vote for him. Contrary to 'conservative' thought, it's not the responsibility of the citizenry to blindly vote for anyone with the right letter by their name. It is the responsbility of the candidate to represent his constituency and win their vote
5 gets ya 8 says I.
This isn't 1992. Trust me, the only 3rd party candidates who are going to run are the liberal/moderate squishy types who are going to hurt the Dim more than the GOP. I don't think there'll be a conservative 3rd-party candidate unless the base is stupid enough to vote for Rudy McRomney in the primaries.
“Rich people in the US all immediately turn into Socialists if not downright Marxists. Ive never understood why this is the case. But look at people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, etc., and youll see that they support leftist causes straight down the line.”
It’s because leftists are more apt to kiss their(Gates,etc) asses and worship them than do people on the right.
That depends on what topics he campaigns on. If he hits the correct Republican notes, he can siphon votes. That’s just what Perot did- a careful triangulation of several hot buttons for Republicans and poison pills for Democrats, and Billy Jeff won with 48% (or something) of the vote.
It requires MSM complicity, but that should be no problem.
This guy was on the West Coast yesterday trying to enlist the Mayors of SF and LA in his gun confiscation schemes.
“Hilary just dropped her left nut.”
She got rid of Bill...?
This is going to be HUGE news tomorrow in the NYSlimes, NewsWeak,on CNN, Larry King, Softball,er,,,,nevermind. Pin drop.
He left it long ago.
Perhaps people who earn their money in petroleum are different. (Then again, there is Arman Hammer — but he got rich by being a communist.)
This idiot left the GOP back before there was a GOP.
There is no longterm political news that is worse for the Republican Party than this.
Uh, he only joined the Party so he could stand out from the crowded dem field.
the GOP only let him do it because they care more about an “R” being elected then principles.
Guess Bloomberg now wants to pretend to be above both parties becaus no one like either of them. If he had guts, he would run as the liberal Democrat he is.
You give him way too much credit.
He had to do it. He got too tired of waiting for the party to ask him to leave.
Hitlery must be pissed. Another liberal, like Nader, to siphon off votes from her loon liberal base.
New York media level republicans are every single one of them a little bit weird. It must be something in the water.
He won’t hit the correct Republican notes. He’s at least as liberal as Her Heinous, and not shy about it. Pop some popcorn and enjoy. The Dems chances in ‘08 just got a lot worse.
