Since the billionaires own the rest of the country, what's wrong with having a billionaire President?
Hey, Soros never came through on that deck for me, so I'm switching to Bloomberg.
I bet Broder's wetting himself already, at the prospect of a third party run (and anybody but a Democrat wining). As are the highly priced consultants of Vanity08.
In fact, it looks like Bloomberg's ripping a page from Broderella's handbook:
"The politics of partisanship and the resulting inaction and excuses have paralyzed decision-making, primarily at the federal level, and the big issues of the day are not being addressed, leaving our future in jeopardy," he said in a speech Monday at the start of a University of Southern California conference about the advantages of nonpartisan governing.
Uh, so where you you for the last eight years of Republican rule, mayor? It took you that long to find the white horse?
UPDATE Bloomberg in 2004 and 2006:
But he never seemed willing to part with the GOP completely, raising money for the 2004 presidential convention and contributing to Bush and other Republican candidates.
Just last year, he told a group of Manhattan Republicans about his run for mayor: "I couldn't be prouder to run on the Republican ticket and be a Republican."
Gee, which part made you proudest, Mayor? The torture part? What? For such a smart, rich guy, Bloomberg certainly seems to have some blind spots.
In fact, Bloomberg is a graduate of the class of 2006. Much too little, much too late.
