I was so impressed with Bloomberg's excellent t.v. commercials. I'm also impressed that he is paying all his own campaign expenses and that he won't accept any contributions, which to me means that no-one can buy him or expect any favours from him if he wins. It saddens me that all the leading candidates are so old, but he seems confident he can do the job. Any of the candidates are better than Trump. I think I might vote for Bloomberg based on his record and what I've heard and seen from him so far.

I like his powerful political slogan, 'Rebuild America'. I'm very much an admirer of/believe in Michael Bloomberg as you perhaps already know. I think he reads situations well and believe, as presidential candidate, has the best chance of taking out Trump. I hope other Democrat candidates will come to support, rather than oppose, him. Just watched Bloomberg's first speech as presidential candidate (25/11/19) - have you seen it yet? Runs for 16.21 mins Utube.

First of all I believe that all politicians are NOT trustworthy. Second, advertisements and speeches are supposed to sell you a product, make believe that you have to get it. For many years I worked as a creative writer for high-priced designer products. Make women "must have it". - Don't fall for all the strategies with their promises to trap you.
What are the chances behind the slogan "Rebuild America"?

Bloomberg has a long-standing policy of banning his reporters from investigating him or his businesses. Now he's banning any investigation of him as a presidential candidate, along with all of his fellow Democratic candidates! In reality, Bloomberg's journalists have been compromised ever since Bloomberg first ran for mayor of New York City in 2001. Why would Bloomberg bother running? He doesn't look like he'll dominate the presidential race. It's pure arrogance.

I'm definitely going to take a long look at him too.

Thanks for the heads up on his speech. I will listen to it today and come back with comments.

Hello. I don't have a cynical view of politicians believing most truly do want to make a difference in public service. But I don't deny many are ambitious and far too many get sucked into corrupt leadership efforts. It's a disgrace that republican senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is sitting on over 400 bills already passed by the House. This historic obstruction is doing great damage. The lying is unprecedented with Trump now at over 13,000 lies and counting. Let that sink in.

I'm a very informed voter and I've been an activist all my life. I realize that many voters are not engaged and they should be. Political ads can never substitute for engagement and sadly negative ads are effective. But quality ads that open the door for listening are harmless. They can make a difference in furthering that goal. Bloomberg's ads so far are at least professional and civil.

Oh yes the "shiny" object

The value of polished silver.. that isn't tarnished

A smart shopper can see through it.

My response really applies to everyone.. But I did choose your response to respond to..Mainly because I want to boot you in the ass... Because you can't see how rebuilding America, can be the same a re-booting it.

"First of all I believe that all politicians are NOT trustworthy"

A dumb shopper only see the tarnish.. no matter how "shiny" the silver, It's always a "tarnished" object. My "re-booting" doesn't involve cleaning the silver or any silver lining for that matter.. It involves cleaning up your act.
As only those who do not TRUST are untrustworthy.

    You tell me about Creepy old Uncle Joe who while at a campaign stop in Iowa on Saturday, the Democratic presidential candidate munched on his wife's finger as she spoke to the crowd at the first stop on the candidate's "No Malarkey" bus tour.
The question is...why is a fat dude...a lying corrupt racist sexual predator, a republican lying corrupt racist sexual predator running? Do you think a lying, corrupt racist sexual predator, Trump should immediately resign? Do you not comprehend Trump's subversive acts against America? What are you sucking on Mr. Ed?

    Maybe you can explain why you and other Democrats accept the sexual escapades of one William Jefferson Clinton and his pal Jeffery Epstein yet suddenly get all your collective kickers in knots now.
Clinton was impeached by Democrats AND Republicans. I don't believe anyone accepted the actions of Epstein, except maybe Trump. Trump's impeachment is not about his sexual escapades, it's about National Security and the effort to cover up his wrong doing. Dwell on that for a minute.
Never have I seen a more divisive President than Trump. It sickens me to watch him speak as he can't make it through a speech without ad-libbing some nasty remark about Democrats/Liberals. Trump is not a president for the entire nation.

Put Trump under Oath on the stand.

" Trump is not a president for the entire nation."

Sorry about that, but you so mistaken. Donald Trump is the President for the entire nation whether you like it or not. The same as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W and George H W Bush and Ronald Reagan. The very simple fact is you don't get to be the only one who chooses the President. There just happens to be one very large country between the coasts and they also have a say.

The American people voted for Hillary...she won by MILLIONS of votes. Now...you were going to tell me why you support Trump...despite the fact he R*ped a journalist? I don't grasp your complete FRAUD of Family Values. Reagan was the first DIVORCED President...Ford brought divorced Betty into the White House along with alcoholism. Trump is a complete FRAUD of family values with a long history of grabbing women's genitals and even his favorite president Andrew Jackson shacked up with a married woman. What a disgrace....HILLARY whipped Trump, badly. Like it or not...you are supporting a R*PIST.

You forgot Bill Clinton and his list of women starting with Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, Leslie Millwee, two of the above women accused Clinton of R*A*P*E. He also had to pay one $850,000.

I just don't get it..
Your blog response as oppose to Trump's phone call was "perfect"..

And then big's response and then Leaf to response to big..

Made them both look so stupid, so inanely incompatible when compared to your blog....Why do people do that? Not bother to read or understand and just mouth off.

As leaf is willing to let Rome burn...to have "big" play the fiddle.
