    Sounds like Mike in some way wants to have a say in 2008.

    . . . saying the things that are the easiest to say when you're NOT a candidate.

    Not that he's wrong.

    Still, now that Romney's out, he's not running.

    He will be the 300 lb gorilla in the room with check book in hand

    Clear that he is not running

    Also clear that he wants to have a say.

    Still, his veiled implication that by and all, he's the guy with all of the right answers is hilarious.

    He may not have them all but he might come the closest to getting them all right. He certainly has done a good job in NYC
  6. Boom --
    He says nothing in that piece, except that he'd like politics to be a little less, well, political. It's nothing. It's air. And, while he was going around the country, did he notice that every poll said that there was no interest in his candidacy whatsoever.

    Fenian - do you really think that I am basing my opinion of the man on one op ed column?
  8. No, but I think you're basing your opinion of his prospective influence on the presidential race on that one op-ed piece.

    Nope - basing it on the idea that he has money and is willing to spend it, has a forum and understands how to use it, has no real loyality to either party which allows room for independant thought, has a track record of success in running NYC, has big picture ideas that are worth listening to.

    Funny, didn't the last Bloomberg thread get deleted?
  11. What forum does he have and how has he used it so far?
    Nobody is listening to this guy.
    He has a checkbook and a collection of banalities insufficient to the moment.

    Hey, were it HRC/Flipper/Midget, I'm voting the Midget.

    Fortunately, it's not.

    His city congestion plan alone indicates he isn't harboring the proper aversion to regressive-taxation schemes.
