TalkandPolitcs…..Bloomberg wants to run…..The Dog adds why he won’t make it…..

From Talkandpolitcs…..

This from a top NY Political Consultant in Team Bloomberg. If he sees an “opening”, Mayor Michael Bloomberg may decide to run for President in 2012.

As for funding – Bloomberg could “easily spend $1 billion” on an independent campaign.

Comment from the Dog…..

I saw this story….

I was going to do a post….But I didn’t…

The main reason I didn’t was because I thought this whole story was ludicrous…

Mike Bloomberg spent $130 million to win the New York City job by about 3% points….

Lets check somethings out….

He’s Jewish….

He’s very rich…

And he’s anti guns……

And he’s an ex-Democrat, who dances with the GOP ….but claims he’s a Independent….

Three of the four things I have listed will mean that he will never be the GOP  or Democratic nominee for President of the United States…

We have a black President…..We’ve never got close to having a Jewish one

Being rich gets him a place at the table…..That’s all..

Being anti-gun means he won’t win in the South and West…..

Independents don’t get very far running for President in this country even if they have a shitload of money….

This is an ego story…

The guy ran it out in New York City buying a third term….

There are just too many people for him to make it outside New York….

Mike……. do your time as Mayor and enjoy it……

Talkandpolitcs…… Sestak to the wolfs…..

The hoards were on him at capitol hill steps just now, shown on Ratigan/Spitzer MSNBC.

But for a rookie senator candidate – he did great. Kept calm and repeated the simple answers. This seems largely like a non-story, as a job-offer really is neither a threat or a bribe. The new RandPaul interviews on Russian Tv could probably spin more…..

Talkandpolitics……Hardball Matthews shutting up babe…..

Watch this:

CHRIS MATTHEWS (speaking rapidly): I found with 220,000 miles of oil pipeline in this country they have one federal guy looking out for this. It’s a joke. They do not regular the oil industry –

CHELSEA HANDLER, GUEST, COMEDIAN: Can you talk faster?

MATTHEWS: The oil industry is completely … (pause) You know, my dear, you’re beautiful but if you concentrate you can keep up.

The audience and Leno go nuts. Clip.

Talkandpolitcs…….Mixed results from Super Tuesday ……

Projected results from todays voting:

  • Arlen Specter big lose in Dem PA-Sen.
  • Critz (D) safe win in PA-12
  • Rand Paul (R) takes Kentucky huge by +25.
  • Blanche Lincoln (D) heading for runoff.

Mostly good for the Democrats this time. PA-12 was the “referendum” vote which ended in favor of the current administration. A stronger Tea Party in Kentucky could spell trouble for the GOP, but too early to tell. And the Specter sacking is the democratic base of Pennsylvania rejecting the GOP defector, even if he gave the tipping vote for stimulus and health bill……

I couldn’t agree more…Thanks for saving me a post!

Talkandpolitcs……PA fight in CNN State of the Union……. Specter win.

The race is still a toss-up, but the last voice on the Sestak-Specter sequential interview at Cnn State of the Union just now – Arlen Specter might have won over most swing voters. Playing his “new” democratic base and pounding on his Stimulus and Obama support, in order to end right-wing “bickering” and saving the country from a new depression, he might have scored some points……

Ole’ Specter is a pro.

The verdict is out there tuesday..
