From the NY Post:
Bloomberg has become such a fervent champion of Obama in recent weeks that it sometimes seems that he -- not Thompson -- is the Democrat in the race.
The mayor's campaign last week unleashed robo-calls to remind voters that Bloomberg and Obama are on the same page when it comes to health-care reform.
When a reporter pointed out that the president has yet to produce a specific health-care plan, Bloomberg sprang to his defense.
"Well, the president's been in office 10 weeks. He can't do everything," the mayor said. "Let's give him a little bit of slack."
Insiders say the mayor's strategy is to Velcro himself to a popular president and to blunt a possible appearance by Obama on behalf of the comptroller, which would certainly boost Thompson's chances of becoming the city's second black mayor.
This has Republicans wondering why they should allow him to run on their line in November. How much shit are you willing to swallow?
P.S. The Staten Island GOP was the 2nd to fold. One more to go...
