And not a moment too soon.
Thank goodness today is Primary Day and the robo-calls can end.
Thank goodness Election Day is coming up and we can Mayor Bloomberg can finally get the hell out of City Hall, given that he rewrote the rules allowing a third term.
Thank goodness he opened his rich-boy yap to New York magazine and proved to the world yet again that he cares more about money and financiers than the rest of us in the city that he ruined. Never has the divide between the one percent and the rest of us in the middle or lower been greater. This is a brilliant place to live if you’re rich. It sucks if you’re not.
When asked about frontrunner Bill DiBlasio, who just so happens to have a black wife and mixed-race children, Bloomberg said he was acting like a “racist. ”
“I mean he’s making an appeal using his family to gain support. I think it’s pretty obvious to anyone watching what he’s been doing. I do not think he himself is racist. It’s comparable to me pointing out I’m Jewish in attracting the Jewish vote.”
What is DiBlasio supposed to do—hide his family away? Get a grip, Bloomie.
And then Mr. Moneybags went on: “I’m not being cavalier about it, but most places in the world our poor are wealthy. There’s a lot of tragedy around the world.”
How stupid can one smart man be? So what if our poor have more than the poor in other countries? If your cost of living is catastrophic because all the stinking selfish fat cats raise the rents and the prices on everything else they can afford, and if you can’t pay your overhead and you can’t feed your family and you can’t earn a living wage, it doesn’t matter where you live, does it? Poor is poor.
As if he cares.
Not surprisingly, Bloomberg wants Christine Quinn to win.
Of course he’s for Quinn. She’s his little lap dog.
