Bloomberg begins expensive mudslinging campaign

From the NY Times:

He is comfortably ahead in the polls. He has the vast powers of incumbency at his disposal. He has the backing of the city’s most powerful business interests.

But that does not seem to be enough for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

As his campaign sought to overpower any candidate considering challenging him, Mr. Bloomberg commissioned a telephone poll last month that spread derogatory information about Representative Anthony D. Weiner, one of the mayor’s possible rivals in the race.

Where can I find his opponents so that I can tell them true stories about Bloomberg.

Signed, the lady whose living room ceiling met her living room floor, they married and now the walls are producing lots of little cracks.

You do not need opponents people to tell stories.

The regular Joe reading this blog can play an important role in setting up him, and revealing to NY exactly what he is.

What is needed are embarassing questions fired at him as he 'rides the subway' and 'walks our communities.'

1. Your questions will initially be edited out by the pro-Bloomberg press.

2. He has a short temper. Being peppered unexpectedly by the general public about his

a) mishandling of the city finances (come on people, does anyone think its in good shape?)

b) wanting to stay in office to assure the capital markets that a friendly voice will be there (as our communities are destroyed and our taxes are wasted in overbuilding) to make developers rich while services as schools, transportation, and transit sharply decline

c) and his political coup (in overturning the public's desire for term limits)

will drive him up a wall, and make him testy and shifty and wary before the public - perfect images we need to project.

3. Hitting him with these questions, his over-reaction, will sooner or later get in the news.

Sniping is always the prelude to battle.

I can't wait till someone new is in office and can see what really went on in the mayor's office. I believe a lot of people are going to have to answer a lot of questions, in the near future. I find it amazing eminent domain is being abused so much in bloomberg's last year in office, and i believe he has his hand in this corruption (special interest). I want someone out there investgating what this man owns, how he came about owning the properties.

Der Fuhrer Bloomberg wouldn't be spending this kind of money to slander Weiner if he was so damn sure that he had the election in the bag.

Keep on kicking Mike's ass on QC.

The readership numbers are astounding here!

It's the best place to drive that stake through his heart so he can never return to walk the halls of NYC government!

Has anyone saw his commerical? I did this morning and I really had a good laugh. Saying things like putting people before special interest groups. MY GOD the KING of special interests trying to spoon feed the public. He should be On Sat Nite Live he's that funny and the sad part is he truly things most of NY'RS are stupid. Shame on you Mr. Fraud.

Taxpayer said...

Don't forget that we are all paying for another campaign outlet for the Commissar: NYC Government Programming (NYCTV4) Ch 81 on RCN.

The Commissar just cannot get on TV at your expense enough. Several hours a day, every day, there's Turtle Face, with his shit eating smug grin, as humorless as a floating turd, and just as boring.

He actually gets himself in front of a camera with a mike even more frequently than Schumer.

What has this Commissar actually accomplished that is of ANY value to the taxpaying citizens of NYC?

I saw that Chich Chick!
He buys them adds just like he buys off the press to get those Sheeple votes.

Paid for Media CaCaa intended the tweeded and ignorant sheeple that occupy the voting area.

Lets not forget print rags like the Dailey News.

They play his song as well with weekly reports about a poor illegel single mom with 7 kids by 7 fathers cant house, feed or house her litters because all the fathers split, in jail, wanted on warrents or deported.

HOW ABOUT THE CITY SPENDING MONEY TO HAVE A WORKSHOP FOR THE DAY WORKERS, SO THEY COULD LEARN THEIR RIGHTS? I THOUGHT BEING ILLEGAL MEANT YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS, YOUR HERE ILLEGAL AND DON'T PAY TAXES.. AMERICANS ARE STUGGLING TODAY, BECOMING HOMELESS, LOSING WORK AND CAN'T FEED OR PAY FOR THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE, BUT OUR TAX DOLLARS GO TO EDUCATE THE ILLEGALS OF THEIR RIGHTS. WE NEED A CHANGE AND IT HAS TO START WITH AMERICANS FIRST POLICY.

He should be On Sat Nite Live

He likley WILL BE on SNL
Der Fuhrer had an "Extra" card but now has a full SAG card like Trump and Rudy G.

SNL wraps for the season in 3 weeks Startup back in September is about correct

EDUCATE THE ILLEGALS
-----------------------

In Manorville some church and La Raza was running a "How To Get Over" class.
It was in Spanish but looked like a how to "Get Over"
How to get welfare
How To on hospital services.
How to get a N Carolina or Tennesee drivers licence and a car without insurence

It was like 2 pages of how to do stuff.

IF HE IS TRULY SINCERE ABOUT PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES THEN PROVE IT, PULL THE PLUG ON THE H.S. IN MASPETH. WE NOW KNOW THEY ARE READING OUR COMMENTS. OH JUST SAW ON THE NEWS HE'S HITTING THE AIRWAYS A MONTH EARLIER AND ALREADY SPENT 3 MILLION, HAS A LOT MORE TO PAY INTO ADS.

He is such an asshole. I think people will realize that and not re-elect him, despite (or maybe because of!) all the money he plans to throw at this thing.

Sent my check. Have you?

steve said...

I said it once before and I'll say it again. The way this egotistical maniac owns the city, I can't really see him losing. Even if he loses in votes. Seriously. It has become pretty obvious that he can pay for anything or anyone he wants (term limits?). Whose to say he won't simply pay the right people the right amount to have the results come out in his favor. It's really fucking sad and terrifying, but that's how it's probably gonna go down. It's probably already a done deal. Call me jaded if you will. I certainly hope I'm wrong...

Steve, half believed you until I read this.

This guy's image is very very brittle. All that is needed a few people to act up around the cameras, write letters to the press (getting after their kid glove treatment) and he can fall like a house of cards.

This guy is pure bluff.

Reminds me of a bug I would sometimes find in meadows. There would be a wad of spit on a bush, and when you brushed it aside carefully there would be a tiny green bug inside.

steve said...

The whole point I'm really trying to make, is that I really don't trust any part of the voting system. If the right amount of money is paid to the right people, anything can go the way he wants it to. Regardless of how many people call him out in public, trying to tarnish his image. Thats really how I feel. And again, its an awful feeling... Awesome bug analogy by the way....

steve is right
its probably how its all going to go down with mayor bloomprick

Bloomberg is really bad for tenants. the crap comes from the top in housing court as the HPD attorneys know that they don't have to do anything to get repairs or do anything for tenants. Republican Bloomberg is good for landlords, not tenats. He vetoed local law 7, the anti harrasment bill that much to his dismay was over ruled with a larger vote by the city council. Bloomberg could care less about creating more homeless people in NYC.

btw, the only good that will come of this campaign, like Rudy's, is that there will be a couple of more people with jobs in NYC

Look numbnuts. I'm all for calling the fuck out and heckling him in public. Honestly, nothing makes me happier. And everybody should vote for the candidate who has the likeliest chance of beating him. EVERYBODY. Do everything you can to make doomberg look like an out of touch prick, which he is. All I'm saying, mr. anonymous, is that this asshole is the emperor of pocket greasing. I'm just being a realist here. And I will stay home, after voting against him....

quote from barron to bloomberg: i just want to grab a white man and smack him around. you can't understand it's a black thing.

CityChic said...

He said it all in his ad.
He said he has a plan, which probably means more eminement domain. He is going to bring high value jobs back to the city, probably paying the middle class 7.50 an hour. And the key to it all is his comment INDEPENDENT THINKER. That says it all.

prop said...

he's gonna lose another 7000 votes if he has his way. Come on already, why more city layoffs?

What happened to town hall meetings? Guiliani used to do them a lot and Bloomberg did them for like a nano second. That would be a good opportunity to ask him the hard questions. He's horrible.

That is why the old saw was coined, "How the mighty have fallen."

History is littered with the corpses of the rich and powerful who overplayed their hand.

This prick is no different.

All we need to do is have the militia awake and ready, and like the Redcoats when they went out to forage among the public, harry him and his minions until exhausted and bloody, they stay hunkered down and starving.

You can't eat gold.
