Wasn't Bloomberg supposed to be announcing his intention to run last week?
perhaps he's having second thoughts. It'd be interesting, no doubt about it. Bloomberg isn't really a Democrat and I doubt he'd be met with much enthusiasm by the younger generation or those inclined to more radical politics. He'd be a formidable opponent though, no doubt about it.
1) He was Republican. Most Republicans will vote for the Republican candidate whoever it is; and
2) He wasnít Hillary. She was despised. I donít really understand it but it was a big factor away from the coastal metro areas.
I donít think it was much more complicated than that. The key for the Democrats is to find a credible candidate that isnít too extreme. Iíd love it to be Mike Bloomberg, personally.
Could you help me try to understand something.
His policies; I disagree with nearly all of them but accept we all have different views and can understand what people see in them.
His political style; I sometimes find it amusing that people on the left who have spent their lives criticizing the establishment and institutions of the state are now appalled with his lack of respect for them. I think id quite like someone who shared my views in power giving a metaphorical middle finger to the establishment. So Im fine with that bit.
Not accepting the accusations against him; Again I
get that, most of them arent clear cut and we like to think the best of ppl we agree with.
The man himself, his personal style; This is the bit I struggle with, how do you not cringe every time he opens his mouth. He often struggles to string to comprehensible sentences together. Most foreign leaders are more eloquent in a second language than he is in his only language. Does this not bother you at all?
Could someone help me with this last one specifically.....
