Rich, old white guy Michael Bloomberg has a plan to win over Democrat voters skeptical of his privilege and his Wall Street billions. He will have to if he runs for the jackass party’s nomination for President in 2020.
Give him credit though. He plans on winning Dems’ hearts and minds with a campaign against Americans’ God-given, Constitutional rights to keep and bear arms. Well, that and championing global warming nonsense. This, he believes, will bring Democrat voters out to the polls to elect him.
Here in flyover country, I’m looking at between twelve and eighteen inches of global warming in my back yard – and better than three feet near the street. Like most Americans, I’m worried about the government and illegal immigration. Not gun control and global warming.
The diminutive Bloomberg knows America’s basket of deplorables and bitter clingers in flyover country will never support him. So he’s pandering with issues that he feels resonate with increasingly radical urban Democrat voters. And that will help distinguish him from an already crowded field of candidates.
All the while, he ignores how gun control came at steep price for Democrats as they lost control of the U.S. House in 1994. For the first time in decades. Even the far-left Salon grudgingly tells the truth in “Why Democrats dumped gun control“:
…Gun control advocates haven’t won a major victory since Bill Clinton was president…
And speaking of the old skirt-chasing Bill Clinton, Human Events reminds us of what Bill wrote in his memoirs:
Bill Clinton admitted in his memoirs that the gun issue cost Al Gore the White House in 2000 and Sen. John Kerry’s pathetically staged “goose hunt” in Ohio just days before the 2004 presidential election cooked his.
At the same time today, Michael Bloomberg thinks himself the smartest person in the room. And he surrounds himself with people who tell him the same thing. Without a doubt, some of his opponents will point to Bloomberg’s own statements against allowing gun ownership for young, black men – because they can’t be trusted.
Given his while male privilege and billions in the bank, he will run a formidable campaign if he indeed jumps into the race. The question remains, will his privilege and his money sway Democrats who rail against both lately?
Time will tell.
