Bloomberg-Clinton 2020?

| February 17, 2020

President Bloomberg and Vice President Clinton? (WireImage)

The Daily Mail reports that there is a chance that Mike Bloomberg is considering Hillary Clinton as a potential running mate. Internal polling has shown that the two would form a strong ticket. However, both Bloomberg and Clinton are emphasizing other important issues than the Vice President’s position.

If this were to happen, Mike Bloomberg may change his residence from New York to either Florida or Colorado. This would make their ticket complaint with the 12th Amendment to the Constitution should they win.

One consideration, for such a ticket, is the appeal to the Sanders section of the party. They’re not too happy with Hillary Clinton based on their experiences in 2016. Would Hillary take advantage of this opportunity if it’s offered?

From the Daily Mail:

Bloomberg had endorsed Clinton over Trump in 2016, saying at the Democratic National Convention in July 2016 that though ‘there are times when I disagree with Hillary,’ the country must unite to ‘defeat a dangerous demagogue’.

‘Let’s elect a sane, competent person with international experience,‘ Bloomberg said at the time.

It’s been a busy week for Bloomberg as he was forced to apologize after a recording was leaked online of him talking bluntly about his stop-and-frisk policies.

‘Ninety-five percent of your murders – murderers and murder victims – fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops,’ Bloomberg is heard saying in the recording.

‘They are male minorities, 16 to 25. That’s true in New York. That’s true in virtually every city.’

‘And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed.’

The Daily Mail and the New York Post have details for this story. Thanks to HMCS(FMF) ret for this story.

    Hillary won’t play second fiddle, at least for very long.

    Frog and the scorpion tale, anyone? It’s the nature of the scorpion to sting.

    • Anonymous says:

      Hasn’t Bloomberg heard of “Arkanicide” or, at least, wondered why Clinton associates die so often?

      • Hack Stone says:

        Even more perplexing is that Hillary Clinton insisted that the victory celebration be held at Fort Marcy Park along the George Washington Parkway in Arlington VA. Word on the street is that the view is to die for.

          IIRC, Chuck Robb’s place is very closely located to Ft. Marcy.

    Mikey better be careful, he might commit suicide.

    I’ll get ahead of the curve here. Just like Epstein, Bloomberg did not kill himself.

      I was going to post a meme related to this with the above post but thought against that. I wanted you guys to have at it with that angle. :mrgreen:

    Mikey Bloomberg is the NYC mayor who banned the use of baby formula for newly-hatched hoomans in NYC hospitals.

    The fact that not all women can lactate immediately on giving birth, or even let down and nurse right away escaped his notice shows his colossal ignorance and need to control everything other people do.

    Nowhere could I find anything that said he asked La Leche to help those women who could not nurse their newborn infants shortly after birth. He is absolutely out of his depth in every way – needs to get professional help with his problem.

    He is a braindead control freak with obsessive control issues, and needs to be bumped off any political tickets. Maybe we get lucky and Shrillary decides that she can’t stand the smell so near her AO?

    Wendy’s has heavy-duty paper straws? Hmmm… what a mess that can be. I may go visit Wendy’s and pick up a supply.

      That arrogant ass was running his idiot mouth about farmers.

      Something along the lines of “you just dig a hole, put in the seed, and corn comes up”

      There will be more such gaffes revealed.

        Found it:

        “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on to, add water, up comes the corn.”

        How deep? What kind of soil? What date? What kind of corn? How much water and how often? What sorts of bugs and weeds to prevent? Diseases? What is the market looking for this year? Next? When will you harvest it? Who does that? What sort of harvester? How do you fix it when it goes) grinding noise) instead of (harvesting noise)?

        How much of what seed for next year? How does one get seed for modern hybrids?

        Oh for frakking sakes… this arrogant ass had to have been an absolute shitbag of a boss. He is the kind of billionaire feeding all the commie-loon idiocy.

        That he would even ponder a buddy-team with Hilary is proof positive he has no business in any elected office.

        Also that he may be suicidal.

        Michael Bloomberg Belittled Farmers, Machinists: Modern Jobs Require More ‘Gray Matter’

        Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg once claimed that farming and manufacturing jobs required little brainpower compared to the information economy, where the former New York City mayor made billions.

        Bloomberg, who is under fire after a string of old sexist and racially insensitive remarks resurfaced on social media last week, made the belittling comments at a 2016 Oxford University forum in England. During the forum, the former mayor asserted that a major obstacle to uniting America’s heartland with the coasts was the inability of blue-collar workers to transition into the information economy.

        • Mason says:

          “old sexist and racially insensitive remarks”

          Old implies that they were many years ago. Like the videos of Biden using the term “colored” from the 70’s. This wasn’t “old”. This is recent. Just a few years ago. AFTER he was Mayor of NYC for two freaking terms and in his 70’s. These aren’t some old, out of context off hand statements. These are the true and deeply held beliefs of a grown man, a grandfather even.

        • Hack Stone says:

          Yep, it was those genius code writers who were instrumental in keeping the Boeing 737 Max in the air. Unfortunately for the passengers, there was no food for them to eat during the flight because all of the farmers decided to write software.

        Nanny Bloomers needs to learn NOT TO talk trash about Farmers when his prissy pampered mouth is full, what an ultra-arrogant asswipe!

    • Hi Ex and hope your feeling better. Those Wendy’s straws are really sturdy. They started using them in Florida due to a plastic straw ban which fell apart so I don’t know if they will use them until the stock runs out and go back to plastic but time will tell. Glad to see you back.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Thank you, Jeff. I will find a Wendy’s around here and see if they have them. It gives me an excuse to visit Wendy’s and get out of the house.

        I am decidedly better and Dave Hardin has chewed me out for being a blockhead (worse than a butthead), which makes me feel right at home.

        I’ve got stuff to post coming up soon, including my sister’s winter soup recipe.

      • Hack Stone says:

        Wow! Hack didn’t think of that endorsement. Has anyone asked Mr. Mellencamp to comment on this? It’s right up there with supporters of Ralph Northam running a commercial saying that if his opponent won the race for Governor, racist white rednecks would be running down minority children with their pickup trucks, then, after the election, Old Ralphie Boy’s college yearbook surfaces with the black face and KKK uniform.

      • David says:

        We’ve been hit with an ad by Michael Douglas for Bloomberg. (Ah, but his wife could ‘count my vote’ any time.)

        • Hack Stone says:

          Hack has not seen the Michael Douglas endorsement commercial, but he has seen multiple viewings of Judge Judy telling us to vote for Bloomberg while Hack was getting his daily dose of Judge Judy making little kids cry. Interestingly enough, Hack has not seen that commercial for a few weeks, but Hack usually fast forwards through the commercials. Hack is holding off on his vote until he sees who the Federation Of Television Judge Show Bailiffs is endorsing.

    If Bloomie manages to buy the nomination and picks her as his running mate, he better hire a food taster and a massive body guard who is trained in how to prevent self murder. He should also stay out of Marcy Park in DC.

    • 11B-Mailclerk says:

      Will he even make it to inauguration? Does he know yet he is suicidal?

      Scuze…. “Arkancidal”

      Seriously, though. By failing to say “oh -hell- no” to this VP HC notion, he just convinced me beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is utterly corrupt.

      Also that his arrogance does go all the way to “stupid”.

      • MSG Eric says:

        Wouldn’t he at least have to swear in as POTUS before she would be eligible to step up to take over for him?

        • 11B-Mailclerk says:

          My understanding is that the VP elect swears in, then upgrades.

          Rgr769, is that correct?

          • rgr769 says:

            I’m not sure, but if she was elected VP, Mini-Mike would be lucky to survive long enough for the inaugural parade. I am sure the Clinton Foundation could afford a competent hit man. After all, HRC could fund the Steele fake dossier with ease.

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        11B:… that he is utterly corrupt.

        I’d go further than that. He is completely disconnected from the real world, and dumber than a bag of broken hammers about how things interact with each other to provide the stuff that he takes for granted. I doubt that he even knows how to tie his own shoes, or which tie goes with which pair of boxers.

        He is the epitome of someone so stupid, he doesn’t even know he’s alive.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Fort Marcy Park is in Arlington, across the river from DC. It is convenient for those living, working, or committing self-murder in DC. The views there are to die for.

  9. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Bloomberg is not only convinced that he’s better than you, he’s also convinced that he (and he alone) knows what best for you as well.

    The worst kind of oligarch, is the Bloomberg kind of oligarch…they prefer their peasants docile and unarmed.

    Bloomberg/Clinton Ticket Means California-Style Gun Control for Everyone

    A Mike Bloomberg presidential ticket with Hillary Clinton as vice president would mean California-style gun control for everyone.

    On February 15, 2020, the Daily Mail reported, “Bloomberg is considering making Hillary Clinton his running mate.”

    Such a pairing would put two of the most pro-gun control politicians in existence together for a ticket that could deal a crippling blow to Second Amendment rights.

    Consider the various gun controls supported by Bloomberg and Clinton. Both support an “assault weapons” ban, a “high capacity” magazine ban, and the criminalization of private gun sales via the implementation of universal background checks.

    Additionally, Bloomberg is for stricter controls on access to firearms, period, even for the law-abiding. This point was clear following the December 29, 2019, Texas church attack that ended because armed congregant Jack Wilson took out the attacker within seconds. Bloomberg admitted it was good that the attack was ended, but stressed his belief that guns belong in the hands of police, not congregants.

    Weeks later, the Texas church hero spoke out by indicating that Bloomberg’s gun controls would have meant more “carnage,” as they would have forced innocent congregants to sit defenseless, waiting on police to arrive.

    While Bloomberg would push for stricter controls on access to all types of firearms, on top of everything else, Clinton has been clear in her support of using executive power to secure gun control whether Congress likes it or not.

    • When he was in, we had to load only 10rds in our 12rd S&W .40 Model 4046 mags. I don’t think that the suits tried getting a waiver on the mag load since they are sitting behind a desk and not on the trucks. I could be wrong though. I know that the NYPD had to get a waiver to keep a full mag in their weapons and duty belts.

    • Ret_25X says:

      I think it is interesting how all democrats are very supportive of “gun control” for law abiding citizens, yet also very supportive of letting actual criminals out of jail through “bail reform”, and consider criminal use of firearms to be just fine.

      I used to think they were pandering to a voting base, but I now understand that they are all criminals themselves.

        I don’t know whether it’s stupidity or arrogance. Most likely a combination of both.

    I’m tired of this shit show and am wondering if any of these swamp turds are ever

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Spot on Skippy, I’m wid you. The one thing I really expected to see from daTrumpster was the draining of the swamp. It is my one disappointment with his job so far. That, and put down your freaking phone, or at the very least, let somebody see what you’re tweeting before you hit the send button. I think the reason the swamp hasn’t been drained is because they are ALL crooked as hell. Somebody that knows this told Trump and that if it breaks wide open it could cause for sure a march on the District of Criminals with torches, pitchforks, tar, feathers, and ropes. We that served are just incredulous that more of these domestic enemies of our Republic or not in prison already and/or have been shot for treason. We are at war, and we all know what the penalty for treason is during times of war. I am hoping that upon his re-election that the purge will begin but I somehow don’t think that is going to happen.

      Bernie’s followers are mostly nuts. The tantrums will be epic.

      Why is Bernie even a thing? He identifies as an “independent”. Why are the Donks even allowing him to play their game?

      Was he lying about being Independent, or is he now lying about being a Donk? Both fit. His disciples are out-n-proud Communists. Communists wont follow non-Commies.

      All the horse-hockey he has ever spewed is going to come out. Every Donk that doesn’t run away from him will be splashed and branded with it.

        “I doubt the Donk establishment is crazy enough to let Bernie get nominated.”

        True, just look at how they let Das Hildebeast get all the Superdelegates in the 2016 race and I’m sure that the D-rat establishment has already plotted how to keep Bernie from getting it. And yes, if Bernie is TRULY an “Independent” like he says, than why is he trying to get the D-rat nomination?

        • ArmyATC says:

          Follow the money. Comrade Bernie has gotten rich running for the presidency. He wouldn’t have made so much money had he run as an independent.

  25. Comm Center Rat says:

    Bloomberg was elected mayor of NYC in 2001 and re-elected in 2005 as a Republican. He left the Republican Party in 2007 and registered as a Independent then was re-elected mayor in 2009. In early 2020 Bloomberg registered as a Democrat.

    I guess when you’re worth $64B you can play for or buy any political team. Regardless of his political party affiliation, Bloomberg is a danger to our Republic.
