Michael Bloomberg Files Papers for Alabama Democratic Primary
“Michael is a solid guy, and let’s see where it goes,” -Joe Biden

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Michael R. Bloomberg filed the paperwork required for Alabama’s Democratic primary on Friday, taking a first step toward a potential 2020 presidential bid, though he hasn’t announced a formal decision to enter the race.

Bloomberg submitted the documents in Alabama to meet the state’s early filing deadline of Friday. Several other states, including New Hampshire, have filing deadlines as early as next week. Alabama’s Democratic Party said he qualified for the March 3 ballot. 

The former New York City mayor indicated Thursday that he is once again considering a presidential run, with an adviser saying he is concerned that the current crop of Democratic candidates will not be able to defeat President Donald Trump.

Bloomberg, 77, had considered a run earlier this year but decided instead to support Democratic efforts to regain control in Washington. Now he is open once again to running against Trump himself.

Bloomberg is the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News.

“We now need to finish the job and ensure that Trump is defeated – but Mike is increasingly concerned that the current field of candidates is not well positioned to do that,” said Bloomberg adviser Howard Wolfson in a statement. Wolfson said Bloomberg would run on his record of serving as mayor of the nation’s largest city, building his own company and contributing to global causes through his philanthropic activities.

“Based on his record of accomplishment, leadership and his ability to bring people together to drive change, Mike would be able to take the fight to Trump and win,” Wolfson said.

Trump said Friday that Bloomberg’s candidacy would hurt the chances for former Vice President Joe Biden.

“He’s not going to do well, I think he’s going to hurt Biden actually,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “There’s nobody I’d rather run against than little Michael.”

Bloomberg’s possible entry into the race comes as the Democratic field is coalescing around four candidates, none of whom has a clear path to victory.

Biden entered as the front-runner, but has lagged in raising money and at 76, has faced questions about his age, verbal gaffes and other out-of-step comments. Elizabeth Warren, 70, and Bernie Sanders, 78 and recovering from a heart attack, are avowed foes of Wall Street and the wealthy, and have sparked concerns that their policies pull the party too far to the left. And Pete Buttigieg, 37, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is rising in popularity, but faces questions about his youth and lack of political experience.

Warren tweeted “Welcome to the race,” and suggested that Bloomberg consult her wealth-tax calculator for billionaires.

On Friday, Biden also said he welcomed Bloomberg to the race. “Michael is a solid guy, and let’s see where it goes,” Biden told reporters in Concord, New Hampshire. He added that he isn’t worried about his own standing in the race: “Last polls I looked at I’m pretty far ahead.”

'Little Michael'

Trump may just wind up having to eat those words. Of course he would never do so in public, as his ego could not stand admitting he lost to him, and would likely call for a civil war from his rabid supporters.

But, behind closed doors, Trump would likely choke on those words on realizing that he lost to "Little Michael." And so would his rabid supporters.

Bloomberg is a highly intelligent man, who is very organized, will approach the presidency professionally, is a fiscal conservative, socially, a moderate and has a record of being effective. He is also not divisive which is a big thing to me. This nation is torn apart, and Bloomberg as a mayor, was very uniting and worked endlessly as mayor, for free, because he cares about the people, and that means a lot to me. He is also nonpartisan, and as an independent, I find that very appealing.

Right now we have Trump as the incumbent and presumptive nominee for the R's and either Warren or Biden as the likely nominee for the D's.

Warren is out of her mind (unrealistic).   Biden would likely make the balance of the planet feel better about the USA but if not for the fact that Trump is his opponent, he is an unappealing candidate.

I would like (for a change) to have someone I could vote for.    Bloomberg (like the current viable candidates) is older than what I would prefer, but he has the right attributes.

Agreed. Why are these candidates so damn old? Sheesh. But ... I agree that Warren is out of her mind, and Bernie is way too far left as well, but Biden's age and other things make him unappealing to me as well, except when compared to Trump he looks pretty good.

Supporting universal background checks to try to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and criminals hardly makes him in a "personal war" against the second amendment. I love to shoot, but allowing people to carry without adequate training is insane, and not making valid efforts such as background checks to decrease mass shootings is just heartless.

When Mayor Pete's name first came up I thought that with the credentials he had, Rhodes Scholar, experience in governance, well liked by his constituents, good looking, fairly young, multilingual which would please foreign leaders, he could be the one.......until he opened his mouth.  IMO as VP he would taint the choice. I'm waiting for Nikki Haley - If I were an American, I would knock on doors for her.

Totally agree TiG. He would be a welcome relief to America and most of its people compared to the arrogant buffoon who now sits in the Oval office and likes to think he is the King of the world and totally above the law. 

I can't wait to see which foreign country Trump tries to bully into trying to dig up dirt on Bloomberg by withholding some kind of American assistance or offering some amount of money, as it seems Trump is now afraid he can't win on his own, and can't trust his American supporters.

First, there is no perfect candidate for everyone.

Second, do you believe your extreme presentation of his position?   Your words suggest that Bloomberg wants to ban all guns and have totalitarian control over what people drink.   

Third, a PotUS is not a dictator.   What the particular individual would prefer does not necessarily translate into action.   I have no concern that a president Bloomberg would revitalize prohibition or trash the 2nd amendment.   Trump, for example, truly wants to build his wall.

You know that check and balances are built into our system of governance, yes?  That prevents any one person or branch from making radical changes in our laws.  It's hard to amend the Constitution on purpose, so Michael Bloomberg (and Obama, and Beto) were never going to manage to grab your guns, no matter how convinced you (or they) were that they could.  The Second isn't going to be repealed.  Your fear is unfounded, and there is no need to be angry at people who point out why.

No, I don't.  In fact, I've explicitly acknowledged that some have.  But we have a Second Amendment that has pretty much zero chance of being repealed, and a SCOTUS to decide which laws violate that Amendment.  After 8 years of being warned that Obama was coming to take your guns, you still have them.  And the reasons you still have them still exist.

You realize the last shooting that had an armed guard, did nothing to help at all, right? In fact the guard ran away. And its weird, no armed guards at any school when I was a kid, why do we need them now? More guns on the streets? Naw, can't be, because more guns means less crime? Keep telling yourself that bullshit.

Fact: more guns means more crimes committed with guns.

This is a discussion. Please don't make it personal. 

I read your op/ed and that is the opinion of one law professor, which he clearly states here:

According to my analysis of the bill, this version of background checks would outlaw loaning a firearm to one’s spouse or sibling for two weeks.

You do realize he comes from a mostly rural state, correct? We have plenty of guns here, and very few New Yorkers fear he will grab their guns. Why is that?

Republican Ronald Reagan supported the Brady Bill requiring background checks to purchase handguns and a federal ban on automatic rifles.  Trump floated the idea of firearms restrictions, but changed his tune quickly.  But some only hear (and fear) it when Dems say it.

There is no ''could be'' about it Dean..It's a fact. The other fact is that Trump was a big supporter of stop and frisk. He is on record many times defending it and in the first presidential debate not only said it was a good thing but that it wasn't unconstitutional.

If he tries to attack Bloomberg over it he will get it shoved right back in his face.

 “I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun.”

"You know what a gun-free zone is to a sicko? That’s bait.”

“I think that if you had the teacher, assuming they knew how to use the weapon, which hopefully they would, you would’ve been a lot better when this maniac walked into class, starting to shoot people.” 

 “I don’t want to have guns in classrooms, although, in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly.” (Trump repeated this process post-Parkland, saying during his meeting with survivors and parents at the White House, “If you had a teacher who was adept with the firearm, they could end the attack very quickly.” He then denied calling for teachers to be armed.)

Just goes to show how an individual's preconceived notions shape how they interpret the words of others.

He won't even acknowledge that Xi is an evil dictator and the only way for the people to get rid of him is a revolution. 

Consider this word:  diplomacy.   Do you think it wise to publicly call for a revolution in China to rid itself of an evil dictator?    Is that what you would have done in this interview?

They currently have about a million people in concentration camps they prefer to call re-education camps and are harvesting their organs without anesthesia leaving them to die a horrible death. They are monsters.

Thankfully he banned sodas over 16 ounces to stop the soda epidemic that has killed millions. I'm surprised the attorney general didn't follow it up with a suit against big soda for their genocidal beverages.

I mean everyone knows it's a gateway beverage that leads to moonpie addiction.

By the way, back in the days of Tank Man many people were impoverished, but the government has done a fantastic job of eradicating poverty, and as well, since that time a very big percentage of the people have become middle class and better.  The government gives them "bread and circuses", as I've pointed out already, and any desire for revolution has disappeared as far as I know.  Did it ever cross your mind that the people in China just might be happier these days than the people in America are right now?

Your generalization is misleading.  The Chinese government is doing what it needs to do to keep the Uigher Muslims from creating separatist terrorism.  The Uighers have carried out mass murders during the time I have been here.  As for organ gathering without anesthetic - maybe on recently deceased corpses, but then I don't think they feel pain. 

The Muslims I have known here are quite happy, and have never complained about being mistreated, and in fact they are treated no differently than anyone else here - they carry on businesses same as anyone else.  I particularly like to eat in their restaurants because I prefer lamb to pork. 

Is all of the criticism of China these days because the politics in America have become so chaotic it's used as a distraction?  This new "hate China" thing?   Personally I don't believe the reports that describe the Chinese as savages and their government as barbaric. Israelis were also described by the anti-Semites as harvesting organs from Palestinians.  IMO its just vicious propaganda.

Not too far from where I live I've seen the biggest Mosque I've ever seen, with minarets that reach for the sky.  The Swiss don't permit minarets on their mosques, so why not criticize them as well?

But then, you see, I'm prejudiced, because I've been living here for more than 13 years, and you read reports.

The issue was that they were harvesting organs from "criminals" who were convicted and executed by a corrupt system.  It was apparently a very real problem, which began to be addressed 10 or 11 years ago. 

I did go see the Falun Gong show at the Kennedy Center earlier this - very bizarre. Apparently they hate atheists as much as they hate communists and the Chinese government, and the show was so heavy on propaganda that it pretty much spoiled the beauty of the costumes and dance. I bring them up because they claim that tens of thousands of their practitioners are being killed by the Chinese government for their organs, but there is apparently is no evidence that is currently happening. In the past? Apparently yes, it did happen.

You should be careful what you post on your computer - it could have parts in it that send what you write to Beijing.  Even worse, the Huawei employees might kidnap you and send you on a slow boat to China so they can harvest YOUR organs.

True.  I don't think his plan included going all the way, but there will still be plenty of people that will vote for him.  At the last minute, he'll drop out and announce his support of Biden.  Ross Perot did something similar years ago.

If they’re a Democrat, it’s considered tampering with an election.

He could totally run as a Republican. That would be entertaining.
