Is It Possible to Buy the Nomination/Presidency?

2020 February 16
by bc3b

Even if you are an obnoxious, little b@st@rd with a history of sexism and a crappy personality?

Many on the left (including the media) are hoping Mini Mike is their answer to stopping Bernie and then Trump.

Mini Mike even ran an ad on the Daytona 500 telecast (right before Trump’s appearance). He has purchased so many ads that he is driving up the cost of radio and TV ads for the other Democratic candidates.

Meanwhile, the other billionaire in the race (Tom Steyer) is failing badly.

    Klobuchar to Mini Mike – Stop hiding behind ad buys:

    Cone on Amy. Pick on someone your own size. You’re at least 6 inches taller than Mini Mike.

    “Come on Amy. Pick on someone your own size.”
    Yeah. Whatever happened to Minnesota Nice?

    Maybe it’s due to the CA Primary moving up to March, but I’m seeing about a million times more ads than usual.
    I’ve heard horrible Steyer ads on radio. They have a black female voice that sounds like Hillary when she said “Ah ain’t no ways tahred” (I’m not tired) in her faux ghetto accent.
    Bloomberg pops up before every YouTube.
    And the Bernie Campaign texted me multiple times before I told them to knock it off.

    The Tom Steyer link in the above thread may further scare Mini Mike. Steyer couldn’t handle the woman who cried on national TV when Hillary lost in 2016.

    Klobuchar’s criticism isn’t just that he has spent $400, but that he is avoiding interviews.

    We’ll get to Klobuchar tomorrow here at BJG.

    “I love my husband. I’m faithful to my husband. On stage we usually just go for a hug. But I love him very much, and I’m not going take lectures on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh,” Buttigieg said on CNN.

    But we should be subjected to lectures on family values, morality and a twisted version how Scriptures support abortion and homosexuality from you, Petey Boy?

    Bloomberg has spent more all by himself, than all the other Democrat candidates combined…and has garnered about, well, NOTHING. But his billions will buy him votes, and the Democrats won’t care so long as he defeats Trump…which he will NOT do.

    OP: Well we’re about to find out, I think so at least on the nomination.

    “He has purchased so many ads that he is driving up the cost of radio and TV ads for the other Democratic candidates.” …and Trump, and frankly everyone else and it will continue, and the us media platforms will love him for it.

    And he started much, much later than they did.

    BC:
    What’s this “Bloomie spent $400”? Are you missing “million” or “per voter”?

    The Pelosis’ financial dealings are nothing new. They are so bad that 60 Minutes did a segment on them a while back:

    Dianne Feinstein/Richard Blum are even worse.

    Bloomie is buying nothing. Historically a candidate only spends about 25-30% up to the nomination. The balance is reserved for the general. Bloomberg has cash to burn of course but regardless his profligate spending up to now for the most part has been a waste. There is a reason why the spending is muted up to the nomination — few people are watching so the $/eyeballs has a low payback.

    There is the other issue of participation. A Trump rallye has a huge impact if you believe that ole rule of 1 to 5 ratio of influencer to influenced. A 25000 venue yields a 125000 campaign impact on the street. The only Dim that has been able to do that was Obama. I doubt if Bloomie could draw a crowd of 400 if he was giving away tickets to the Gardens to watch the Knicks.

    When Hillary deemed half of America to “Deplorable”, I truly thought that was a low as a politician could go…but Bloomberg said: “Hold my beer!” (or “Hold my caviar”)

    Watch the video of him as he demeans farmers and factory workers as, literally, brainless automatons…worthy of NO respect. Is there ANY doubt that if he were to become President (God forbid), he would indeed treat those Farmers and Factory workers as SERFS?? No doubt at all. The media will try to explain this away, but this was no “gaffe”…this is what he TRULY feels, and he explains it very carefully.

    JR –

    If Mini Mike becomes president, everyone except his elitist friends will be viewed as serfs. This guy has lots of baggage.

    From yesterday’s Washington Post (of all places) – Mini Mike’s history of sexual harassment:

    almost 100% correlation between this map and where all the “mindless farmers and factory workers” live. Bloomberg is trying to out do Hillary…she just called them “Deplorable”

    There could be another title for BC piece here — “Is It Possible to Buy the Democratic Party?”

    It appears possible. The funny bit is Bloomberg represents EVERYTHING that the Democratic Party has always opposed. (except power)

    From the excellent article:

    ==> “Smollett has exactly the kind of skills we look for at our fine organization,” said CNN correspondent Brian Stelter. “He picked a narrative, made up all the relevant facts and details, and stuck with his story in spite of glaring holes in the plot. It’s hard to find people who understand our core values here at CNN, but Smollett seems to be just the guy for us.”

    Well you can, but it is illegal. Best you can hope for is that they self select like they do in Chicago.
