...not even close.
Yes, he may have bamboozled and flim-flammed in addition to having bought his way into three terms as mayor of a liberal pinko large town, but if he thinks that his bazillions of dollars will buy his way into the heartland and the presidency, he is sorely mistaken. He thinks he's the voice of moderation among commie pinko socialists. Yes, he's slighly more moderate than Ho-Chi Minh, leans just a tad less left than Mao Tse-Tung, and is slightly to the right of Josef Stalin. He's as much of a moderate as Fidel Castro.
Don't get me wrong, I fully encourage him to spend as much money as he sees fit and watch it swirl down the toilet. No amount of money can buy bad politics in Fly Over Country. It will not affect any of The Great Unwashed. The Dirt People out here aren't having any of it. Just ask Jeb! how much it costs per vote to convince people that your bad policies are good for them.
Michael Bloomberg has been surrounded by yes men for who knows how long. And those shameless butt smoochers surrounding Bloomberg all to a man agreed that he could buy his way into the Oval Office.
Not a chance. He also assumed that since The Donald could do it (he didn't spend anywhere near the Old Crone in the last election), so can he. Nope. The Donald is a showman. Little Michael is not. The Donald can hold an audience. Little Michael stutters in a monotone with his hems and haws, the guy is no public speaker. The Donald is 6'3" tall. Little Michael isn't. The Donald has led a nation out of a liberal malaise, and Little Michael hasn't.
Sure, all of these things taken individually can be shrugged off. Added all up, Little Michael stands no chance of even getting the Democrat tap as candidate. The guy is just a grown-up Baby Yoda. A toad, and Americans don't elect toads to national office.
In addition, Little Michael's policies are the stuff of certain defeat: grab all of your guns, close all the coal plants, and ban Big Gulps and Juul e-cigarettes, in addition to easing that Green New Deal in under the rug.
Not the stuff that has mobs of admirers begging to sign up for any of that garbage.
But he is certainly free to throw away great big huge gobs of cash chasing the dream. This is The Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, he's free to blow as much serious scratch as he wants. And he has it to spare.
Sunday Supplemental - It’s time for the Sunday Supplemental, an adjunct to your sermonette earlier in the day, said by many to be slightly more interesting than Coca-Cola’s ...
