    The problem with the left eating their own is, at the end of this, there will still be one candidate for the nutjob party to put their energy behind. I couldn't believe that people voted for Hillary, but they did. Who knows what issues are going to be made to seem important in the next election: free elective transgender disfigurement, no taxes for the Democratic base, cathartic safe space therapy, wind powered vehicles?

    Maybe I read Bloomberg's body language and facial expressions wrong, but I got the impression he thinks he has the Democrat nomination sown up because of his money. He was just going through the motions because he had to be on that stage, he did not have to say anything, refute anything, or tell us what his plans are when he is elected as he has bought the nomination. I could be wrong, time will tell.

    As for his appearing unprepared, on Wednesday's airing of WABC's morning talk show, one of the guys on the show said he spoke with someone on Bloomberg's team and asked him why Bloomberg was so poorly prepared. He said the Bloomberg's attitude, whenever someone tries to tell him something is "I have $60 billion, you make $100k a year, so there is nothing you can tell me". Should he, by some mystical quirk in our election process(he is running as a Democrat, after all) that attitude should be very interesting on the world stage.

    Hate and envy are powerful motivators. Every power crazed billionaire thinks they could do what Trump did; they can't and it fills them with envy.

    You have to like people and be liked by at least 50%.

    Most billionaires do not run because they do an internal poll which shows they are hated; so hated they need an army of bodyguards.

    Bloomberg ignored his polls and it cost him $400M so far.

    I have watched several clips of him and it seems pretty clear. He is one arrogant SOB. At this point I’m not sure there is any group left in the electorate that he hasn’t openly denigrated.

    Las Vegas votes tonight.

    Mini-Mike can't just sashay in at the last moment and get the nomination, he needs the delegates.

    If he loses Las Vegas he's toast. If Bern wins, the Democrats are going to go ape-crazy

    "If he loses Las Vegas he's toast."

    Mike is not on the ballot in Nevada. Not on the South Carolina ballot either. Super Tuesday are his first.

    Bloombug will likely be the Democrats Candidate at the end game. He pack a lot of venom and knows when to use it. Watch where you step.:drillsgt:

    Well now he has decided there are 3 women he is willing to let out of their NDA. That should be entertaining. And if there are more than 3, and I would bet there are, that should get some more attention. He can't possibly defend that position to Pocahontas.

    Interesting that the media is going to let him off the hook, but thank goodness Pocahontas is not. At least she is good for something !
