New York City Mayor……’Money Mike’ Bloomberg……..

Here’s his bio from Wikipedia……..

The important part……

In March 2009, Forbes reported Michael Bloomberg’s wealth at $16 billion, a gain of $4.5 billion since the previous year, which makes him one of the most successful billionaires in the United States during the recession, and the world’s biggest increase in wealth in 2009. At that time, there were only four fortunes in the U.S. that were larger (although the Wal-Mart family fortune is split among four people). Bloomberg moved from 142nd to 17th in the Forbes list of the world’s billionaires in only two years (March 2007 – March 2009).

Hence the well-earned name ‘Money Mike’

Listen…the guys has his own business network, his own  plane, he owns several houses around the world….and over the last six months he spend over $125 million to bearly beat his democrat opponent in the race for Mayor…..oh, yea…the people of the City of New York voted against any Mayors having another third term….so he went to City Council and they said ok…forget the vote against the third term, and they let him run….

‘Cash, Money…… Dollar Bills’…….

Bill Thompson was betrayed by the White House……

The New York Times is running a piece today that puts on paper what any political junkie suspected in the race for New York City Mayor…….namely that Obama ‘s people made a deal with ‘Money Mike”s people to not push for Bill Thompson……who lost to Bloomberg by only 50,000 votes……

That’s unfortunate, and people should be pissed, because if the democratic, black or biracial President had a made one trip in a motorcade thru Queens urging people to vote DEMOCRATIC…Bill Thompson would have been elected Mayor of the city…….…

And Thompson ran a terrible campaign to boot…..

Shame on you guys at the White House……

Update: I told you so…check out this piece in the New York Times…the author pitchs the same story…..

Cory Booker for ‘Money Mike’ Bloomberg?……Why?

Cory A. Booker, the Mayor of Newark New Jersey…the one with the ‘D’ for Democrat behind his name, spend Sunday in Queens, New York campaigning with Michael Bloomberg, who has at various times had a ‘D’ , ‘R’ and now a ‘I’ behind his name, but is on the GOP line, and the Independent line, in the upcoming vote for the Mayor of the City of New York……………

Now when I saw this…… I wondered……Why is a democrat from Jersey coming over to Queens, New York to campaign for the NY City Mayor?……Why?

Could one of the reasons be the fact that Mr. Booker has received $26,000 in  campaign donations from the right hand accountant of Bloomberg, Martin J. Geller… the contribution has to be perfectly legal……but ?????

Now, to be fair, Geller is allowed to give money to whoever he wants to…in New York, New Jersey or China for that matter…but after receiving the money in April of this year…..Booker shows up in a majority black area with the Mayor, give us a break…even the little kids around the way can figure this one out…….

All that money…….all that money…maybe that’s why Anthony Weiner didn’t run…..not because he got engaged to you know who………
