COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS (AND REMOVED BY EDITOR)

 

“Michael Bloomberg has spent well over $200M on presidential campaign so far

“Bloomberg, who is focusing on caucuses and primaries beginning in March, is self-funding his campaign”

 

He is, of course, absolutely pure American establishment, but there nevertheless is something appealing about him, at least compared to most of the leaders among the Democrats.

He has avuncular qualities, like Eisenhower. He has some charm. And he has quite a lot of success behind him.

He would be a very safe choice. He would be regarded by much of the world as a sign America is returning to its senses.

Or at least, returning to some sense of decorum and decency in public.

But America is not returning to its senses, not at all.

America is in a mood to display its very worst and be proud of it. It is “mooning” the planet.

It is charged up with all kinds of resentments and childish anger. I think it ready and willing to put on an extremely destructive display to let everyone know just how angry and frustrated it is.

Trump fits the need perfectly, and I’m pretty confident, given no unexpected storms like economic collapse or war, he will win and win big.

I don’t know why Bloomberg waited so long to enter the campaign, but these days nothing makes a lot of sense in American politics.

ADDED NOTE

Now that he’s out making campaign speeches on various topics, I see Michael Bloomberg is a darker figure than I had realized.

He’s making some rather ominous statements about charging people with “domestic terrorism” and ”hate crimes” in the context of anti-Semitism, a very dangerous business given such recent history as the abuse of British Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn on that subject.

Bloomberg also went out of his way to condemn the BDS movement, which of course encourages people to use peaceful, voluntary means to pressure Israel over its apartheid treatment of millions of Palestinians. Peaceful boycotts are what brought an end to apartheid South Africa.

Some of his statements on healthcare also strike me as pretty disagreeable.

We have serious allegations about crude, sexist, and misogynistic speech and behavior regularly in the office, and they come from a number of people.

He also made statements on violent crime, suggesting ninety-five percent of it came from Blacks. He defended a New York stop-and-frisk law that has since been judged unconstitutional.
