It Appears Mini Mike Is In For Real

Originally many thought that Mini Mike Bloomberg was simply investing $1,000,000,000+ because of his animosity toward Donald Trump … to stop him from getting re-elected. Now that Bloomberg is rising in the polls, his ego is kicking in. He definitely thinks he has a chance to snag the Democratic nomination and will do whatever it takes, even if it means tearing apart the Democratic Party, which he seems to have acquired through a leveraged buy-out.

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg has begun pushing out his trove of opposition research on rival Bernie Sanders, unleashing a scathing ad taking on the taking him on for his opposition to some gun control measures

Bloomberg on Monday launched a new online ad that blasts Sanders for multiple votes against the Brady Bill, a key handgun control measure, and for accepting support from the National Rifle Association.

Sanders has cited the views of gun owners in his rural state, as he did in a presidential debate – only to have Bloomberg use his defense in the ad. A Bloomberg release quotes a surrogate, former Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake, saying Sanders is ‘not fighting for urban Americans at all.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s is using its nearly unlimited resources to take on ‘frontrunner’ Bernie Sanders – launching a scathing online attack Monday on Sanders for opposing gun control measures, and pouring more resources into its multi-million TV ad blitz.

The effort was a signal that Bloomberg intends to use his 2,000-plus campaign staff and massive TV spending blitz – at $400 million and counting – to try to take on Sanders, who has mostly avoided getting hammered by rivals despite strong and consistent performance in the polls.

Bloomberg is dispatching surrogates, digging up opposition research, and launching attack ads on the Internet and the TV airwaves, amid mounting pressure on the billionaire to take on the left-leaning frontrunner. He posted the ad on his Twitter account.

CNBC reported that senior Bloomberg aides are planning a broad effort against Sanders beyond the gun control attack.

After getting pummeled himself by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and others on the debate stage in Las Vegas, Bloomberg took aim at a Sanders vulnerability – his past opposition to some gun control measures as well as support he garnered from the National Rifle Association.

Sanders’ backers, which constitute a significant percentage of the Democratic faithful, believe their man was robbed of the 2016 nomination by the super delegates. If Nevada is typical – and it likely is – 25% of the delegates in Milwaukee this summer will be super delegates.

Do you really believe that Sanders supporters will sit idly by if they believe their hero is being robbed of the nomination again in 2020?

    Look at how Sanders supporters went berserk when Chris Matthews criticized their hero on TV. This is gonna get real ugly – Ruth Buzzard Ginsberg and “Wise Latino” Sotomayer ugly.

    I can always get more pop corn at Meijer on the drive home, but what happens when I finish my case of Yuengling? Drive to Ohio every night?

    BC,

    Buy a 6 pack of Sam Adams Utopias (29% proof). It will set you right for the whole month and save a lot of trips.

    Sam Adams (Boston Brewery) is very woke – big supporter of gay rights.

    You know about my boycott list, which grows longer every day. Yesterday at Kroger I bought an item I only half-way wanted because the only option was P&G (which had it not been for my boycott would have been preferable).

    For the most part, come October\November, yes.

    6,

    Yep. But I did not expect it for another 2-3 weeks. Just like always — good insight, bad timing. 🙂

    I wonder who’s feeling happier:
    PM Modi of India for betting on Trump, or
    Premier Xi of China for picking a fight

    I am in the family room with my family. They are watching the Food Channel while I am on my laptop. There were 3 Mini Mike commercials in the first 15 minutes I was there.

    I am presuming these are a local buy. Michigan’s primary is two weeks from tomorrow,

    Just remember, if Nevada is the norm, 25% of the delegates in Milwaukee will be super delegates. If no one has enough delegates going into the convention (and it appears they won’t), look for Mini Mike to be the candidate.

    If the powers that be at the DNC screw bernie again,
    it will be the biggest dong stomp much to their chagrin.

    17,

    Not only that but the Bernie Bros will make Milwaukee look like a Klan rallye burning the place to the ground. That alone would be sufficient to disqualify him to be a winner.

    22 – How much more media can he even buy at this point? I guess they mean shifting the already saturated media markets from ‘bloomberg cures cancer’ type content to ‘bernie is cancer’ type content. Either way another win for MSM.

    Whoa!
    Is this legit?

    Former VP Joe Biden tells a crowd in South Carolina he is “running for the U.S. Senate” and if they don’t like him they can “vote for the other Biden.”

    27, 28,

    That is why I posted ‘DNC, Show Some Compassion’. Its one thing to defeat a man fair and square, but not quite right to take a man down who is not playing with a full deck. Biden is unfit to serve, just that simple. His wife needs to step in and say ‘Enough’.

    I think Biden is toast. It’s between Sanders and Mini Mike. This is bad for the Democrats as Mini Mike is less likable and far more ruthless than Biden. You’re gonna see some real bloodshed as it’s Sanders army of crazies against Mini Mike’s billions. Milwaukee is going to be ugly.
