    By Michael Rectenwald

    Michael Bloomberg plans to do whatever it takes “to get rid of Trump.” As president, he’d push for a ‘regressive tax’ to save us from ourselves. His candidacy is toxic to the Democratic Party, and will be rejected by Americans.

    The former mayor of New York is aiming to become the Democratic challenger in November’s election, but whether he wins the nomination or not, he will have an enormous impact on the coming presidential election.

    By itself, Bloomberg’s money stash – he has a net worth of $50 billion and has already outspent his rivals who started their campaigns many months earlier – makes him a formidable candidate for US president.

    His financial empire has already given him more traction than many candidates without such self-backing have been able to gain – as Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), who recently dropped out of the race, remarked. And, on top of his fortune, Bloomberg’s supposedly “moderate” politics have led some Democratic boosters in the media to suggest that he’s the “Democrat’s dream candidate,” their best bet for defeating Trump in 2020.

    Sure doesn’t seem like he has any traction at all!

    That worked so well in 2016.

    Ok, so this so-called ‘democratic insider’ is a member of the BUSH family. Not a democrat in any way, shape or form. See comments in this thread:

    The Bezos-Post is really getting wacky

     

    Very much a shit-stirring disingenuous article there at RT….

      @n2doc Thanks for pointing that out. Russia Today should not be taken as gospel by progressives, or anyone else, for that matter.

    What it takes is a Bernie endorsement.  And maybe give Bernie the billion dollars — 27 at a time.

    IMO, a Democratic Party primary and general election is nothing more than a huge money-laundering scheme.  All of the DNC media and consultants get fat.  So Bloomberg spending a billion dollars?  Par for the course.  Hillary spent about a billion dollars, Trump spent about $600 million.

    I will not vote for a Vichy Dem. Period. As always, I decide who is a Vichy Dem.
