10/13/10 cover of Bloomberg Business Week, "Why business doesn't trust the Tea Party,"
which is pretty funny since Bloomberg knows small and mid-size business has been strangled under Obama with worse in sight. Bloomberg even said Obama is not particularly interested in business. Why not put that on your cover? (I'm not linking to the article).
9/30/10 From The Atlantic, "Bloomberg on 2012, 'can't win.'" Bloomberg's words at The Washington Ideas forum on general topics and his own political future. He was interviewed by Chris Wallace of Fox News:
- ""One of the criticisms of President Obama that's not fair is that he never said he would be any different than he is now.
- He's always been... pro-union,
also from the Atlantic: "Wallace asked about the recent defeat of Mike Castle, a Republican congressman running for Senate in Delaware, to Tea Partier Christine O'Donnell. Bloomberg, who has campaigned for Castle as well as other moderate Republicans, became agitated. "To judge the whole mood of the country based on one Delaware election that was won by 2,000 votes is ridiculous. ... The public is furious, and they're going to be furious if Republicans take the House and don't do anything."
The mayor also took a few subtle jabs at Obama, criticizing his loose control over Congress. "The executive branch should frame legislation and then go and sell it.
- But you don't turn the stimulus or health care reform over to the Congress."

- Of course Bloomberg has made a separate career for himself as a global warming advocate and profiteer. A change in the Beltway establishment could further expose that trillion dollar scandal. ed.
Bloomberg News has its own global warming website, New Energy Finance, and is big in carbon trading.
- 4/12/10, Mayor Bloomberg is seen as an 'international climate change leader.'
