All Michael Bloomberg knows is he’s rich and he wants to be President. A chameleon willing to be whatever works at the time. Sounds like a rich liberal to me, but that’s not really news.
“Although my plans for the future havenâ€™t changed, I believe this brings my affiliation into alignment with how I have led and will continue to lead our City.”
“Any successful elected executive knows that real results are more important than partisan battles and that good ideas should take precedence over rigid adherence to any particular political ideology. Working together, there’s no limit to what we can do.”
— Michael Bloomberg
How convenient. That would be a great statement if he had any credibility left. Why didn’t he use that approach when he ran for mayor instead of becoming a Republican? The truth is, he could never win the Republican or Democrat nomination so there’s a potential opportunity as an Independent. There are very few true Independents. Bloomberg doesn’t appear to be one of them. You can be non-partisan as mayor because political affiliation is far less important as a mayor than as President.
Mayor Bloomberg was asked by a New York Sun reporter about claims that releasing the gun trace data could prompt a wave of lawsuits against gun dealers and manufacturers.
“Let me just get this straight. You’re worried about lawsuits and I’m worried about going to funerals? That’s the story. Which would you rather have? There’s no flurry of lawsuits. If people obeyed the law, there wouldn’t be any reason to sue,” Mr. Bloomberg said. “That’s a ridiculous argument to make.”
This is a back door attempt to take away the right to bear arms. You know there will be a wave of lawsuits. Look at the tobacco industry. This would be far more insidious. There is obviously a constitutional right to bear arms. Political opportunists love to pass laws for the sake of passing laws. Makes it look like they are accomplishing something, when they are usually eroding rights and doing more harm than good.
