    Mr. Bloomberg, 72, made the remarks after mentioning his growing distress over the number of former college classmates heís noticed in the ďin memoriamĒ pages of his school newsletter, the New York Times reported. Mr. Bloombergís just reached his 50th anniversary of his college graduation.

    And there was Trump saying he's never asked God for forgiveness...

    Bloomberg should win the nomination. That will effectively cancel out all the negative aspects of Trump, because Bloomberg has all of them.
    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nationís political system.

    It seems to be just a political bolster. No weirder than when Trump does it. I don't plan on taking it more serious than that.

    Bloomberg seems to be the Democrat's answer to Trump... rich, arrogant, a business man, says stuff that makes him sound racist.




    PS: The rumor is he is going to ask Hillary to be his Vice President. I fear he will accidentally shoot himself in the back of the head if he gets elected.

    We've pretty much seen it all from the democratic party so far, haven't we? Rigged primaries, vote tampering, and now a billionaire unabashedly bribing his way at the top of the primary race. Wonder what comes next.

    Bloomberg has been blitzing Missouri with his political ads, probably 100 or more times I've seen them. I've only seen a couple from Sanders and Steyer.
