commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg spends $85 million for a third term…….

It’s a record……Michael Bloomberg……the man who owns his own Business network….simply has maneuvered and bought a third term as Mayor of the City of New York…….he will probably spend between $110 and $140 million by November 3th, election day…….wait, here’s the kicker…the guy will have probably spend $250 million all together, for all three of his campaigns…….that’s more than most rich guys spend to become president……

Bloomberg , who is worth an estimated $16 billion, has spend 14 times what his opponent, William Thompson, the city’s Controller has ……

This is America, and no one should be stopped from using their own money and resources in a free election, it is his money….But really?……

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has burned thru $64 million in his campaign for a third term…..

Yep…That’s right……. 64.8 million bucks…….$28 million in the last 11 weeks, to keep the job as Mayor of the City of New York. William Thompson, the New York City Controller, and his poorer opponent, has spend just half of his $8 million in campaign funds……..

Bloomberg, as everyone knows, is rich…how rich you ask?……Try $17.5 billion, plus or minus a few….. reports Forbes magazine…….

He’s gonna win a third term…but you know it’s funny….. No one I’ve talked to, in the city likes the guy, or is gonna vote for him…….

And just think…he ran as a businessman on the first go round…….Not a rich politician…..and he was only going to stay for two terms…max….
