I'm seeing a new Bloomberg commercial with old Obama footage and quotes. That's going to make Biden mad, using Obama is his gig!

I just don't believe that Bloomberg will do as good as he thinks he will across the south or other rural dominant states.


Primary or general? In the primaries he should be able to do as well as any of the candidates left.


I don't think he'll get much in the primaries. If he doesn't do well in the Super Tuesday, he may just pull out.
Southern states are mainly rural and the phrase "god, guns, and country/family/gold (different regions)" is pretty much as well known as the Lords' prayer.
With Bloomberg constantly advertising his and Obamas' "gun safety laws", it's possible that a fair number of gun owning Democrats will not vote for him.

This is why Lil' Mike is going to spend an awful lot of money and not gain traction outside the typical coastal elites:

'Great example for the rest of this country': Bloomberg sees California as model for U.S.

Press - Monday, January 6, 2020

LOS ANGELES — Mike Bloomberg’s plan for California - export it.

The Democratic presidential candidate and former New York City mayor likes a lot of
what he sees in the Golden State and thinks its efforts on climate change, gun
control and criminal justice reform sets a benchmark for other states to emulate.

“I think that California can serve as a great example for the rest of this country,”
Bloomberg told supporters at the opening of his Angeles headquarters.

Yes, there are problems, including homelessness, struggling public schools and
scarce, costly housing. But California “is something the rest of the country looks up
to,” Bloomberg said.
“California has been a leader in an awful lot of things.”

His comments marked a sharp departure from views of President Donald Trump,
whose administration has been in a long-running feud with the nation’s most
populous state over issues from environmental protection to homelessness. Trump
called California “a disgrace” last year shortly after its Democratic-controlled
Legislature passed a bill that would have required presidential candidates to release
their tax returns to get on the 2020 ballot, a proposal aimed squarely at the
president. It was later voided in court.


Bloomberg’s visit came as part of a swing through a state that he sees as central to
his hopes of winning the White House. After a late entry into the race, Bloomberg is
bypassing the first four primary and caucus states and is anchoring his strategy to
California and other Super Tuesday states on March 3.

His TV ads have been appearing routinely on television, attempting to connect with
voters who might know little or nothing about the billionaire businessman.
With more delegates than any other state, California “has a lot of power in the
nominating process,” Bloomberg noted.

His remarks veered from occasional jokes - he lamented that Los Angeles has two
strong basketball teams, the Lakers and the Clippers, while the hapless New York
Knicks have struggled for decades - to searing attacks on Trump’s leadership style
and decision-making.

Referring to the recent U.S. airstrike that killed top Iranian general Qassem
Soleimani, Bloomberg said, “This president has a habit of making decisions
impulsively … and recklessly, as we’ve seen time and time again.”

“During crises like this one, it is critically important to … deescalate tensions and not
escalate tensions, and to not speak irresponsibly and make incendiary and bellicose
threats that may provoke attacks and endanger our country,” he said.

The political moderate argued that Trump has divided Americans, while he can unite
them, and that as Washington languishes in gridlock, he has a record of
accomplishment as mayor.

Among the crowd was Los Angeles investor Mike Connolly, who said he feared the
Democratic Party was drifting too far to the political left and was drawn to
Bloomberg’s scally conservative, socially liberal blueprint. And, importantly, he
believes Bloomberg can defeat Trump.
“He’s got the right policies” for most Americans on critical issues like gun violence
and climate change, said Connolly, an independent who voted for Presidents Bill
Clinton and Barack Obama.
Bloomberg earlier joined Mayor Eric Garcetti, a Democrat who flirted with a
presidential run, for an early lunch at a downtown restaurant.

we're moments away from hearing a bunch of fake reasons why Bloomberg may or may not be catastrophic for the U.S., shifting the blame to the Democrats for choosing such an unelectable candidate, thus forcing the right's hand to have no choice but to vote for Trump again to save America from the dangerous and irresponsible left, who foolishly chose Bloomberg, who would ruin America. they will take their own thoughts and image, and project it right onto their opponents. what happened to these people? i used to enjoy engaging in debate about George W. Bush with the right. now it's a bunch of cult-like anti-social rhetoric.

The Trump Cult now has a uniform. The first link below features our number 1 model, Never Trumper turned Lead Trump Sycophant, Lindsey Graham. The second link features Mark Meadows and of course Don Jr. Soon it will be required attire for GOP House & Senate.

Where exactly was the N-word used in a joke? I didn’t see it

By way of hijacking W/out Hostility...
One of the better known sayings in the sport of auto racing is “Gentlemen, start your engines”
President Trump will be saying it at the Daytona 500

Will he/they receive condemnation for doing so -
After all, “he persecutes children, he has criminal intentions against the United States, what is the matter with you wanting Him to give the command that defines our sport when he’s only using it for political gain” etc -

It will cause protests at the venue, likely for some drivers to drop out in protest.... - also, ”how can fans enjoy themselves when they’re outnumbered by security personnel.....”

it’ll generally be divisive & stain a famous American sports event, again, some believing b/c of Trump, others, not so much him but the protests & heavy security compromising their enjoyment of the day as fans - I hope I’m wrong, but......
If he or a poster did use the N-word, good riddance to them
With malice/ill will toward none

If you are referring to me, NIGS is not "nigger". If that is what you think, you have a serious problem that meds or therapy can never help. Context of the topic and what I actually posted has/had nothing to do with referencing race. How much do those glasses that see what isn't there cost? Maybe Bernie will give you free pair of you break the pair you are wearing now.

Could be. But the Democrats that are left probably all have similar positions on guns. Bloomberg does make it a top issue so it may turn some people off. I'm from a different part of the country but I didn't know many Democrats subscribed to a "God, guns and country" mantra...not that I'm saying those things can't be important to a Democrat, but I've always associated that as a Republican motto. So in terms of a Democrat primary I wouldn't have expected those feelings to play much of a role. I have no problem deferring to your point of view on the matter. The votes will show us what people think.

Looks like it’ll shake down to the four B’s, Bernie, Biden, Bloomberg, Buttigieg, as the DNC approaches

Guns are very important to many Democrat gun owners. However, most I think see the difference between enacting tougher background checks and assault type weapon bans and the knee jerk reaction the Republicans have that any restrictions on guns at all will mean the government is coming for their hunting rifle or hand gun.

Didn't Obama take away all their ammunition?

i don't see a favorable outlook for the Democrats at this stage in the game. with the way the right plans to fight this campaign, Warren will be TKO'd with the Pocahontas tag, Biden is on ice to get the Hillary treatment, Bloomberg is uninspiring as of yet, and Bernie's socialist tag might swing the swing votes to Trump. what about a Buttigieg/Klobuchar ticket?

Many in the Republican establishment were scared of Trump too remember. Maybe Bernie resonates deeper with people than suspected? Bernie might be able to defend himself when given the chance.

quote:
“In many respects, we are a socialist society today,” Sanders responded, noting the tax breaks and subsidies Trump received from the government as a businessman.

“The difference between my socialism and Trump’s socialism is I believe the government should help working families, not billionaires,” he added.
