The Associated Press is panting over Nanny NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s appearance at some sort of bipartisan summit in Oklahoma today. Chauncey Gardiner plus billions of dollars = Michael Bloomberg:
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg turned up the volume on a possible independent bid for president on Monday, participating in a bipartisan summit that stole a bit of the spotlight from the announced candidates in New Hampshire.
Amid talk about Washington riven by partisanship, Bloomberg gathered with Democrats and Republicans — some current elected officials, others out of office for years — to discuss bridging the divide between the parties. The summit came on the eve of the first-in-the-nation primary.
“People have stopped working together, government is dysfunctional, there’s no collaborating and congeniality,” Bloomberg said to applause from the crowd.
Bipartisanship brought us McCain-Feingold, No Child Left Behind, and almost rammed through the McCain-Kennedy-Bush-Reid shamnesty. Bipartisanship is vastly overrated.
I’ll repeat the question I asked in March when the Michael Bloomberg for President trial balloon was first floated: Aren’t there enough pro-abortion, anti-gun, open borders candidates running for president?
