Breaking News: Bloomie does it again!


From the NY Times:

To the growing list of questions that Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg does not want to be asked, you can add one more.

At a press conference in Queens on Thursday, Mr. Bloomberg was asked if an economic turnaround would undermine his initial reasoning for rewriting the city’s term limits law and seeking a third term, which was that a city in financial turmoil needed his steady hand and business background.

Mr. Bloomberg interrupted the question, from the New York Observer reporter Azi Paybarah, having deemed it unworthy of his time...

With that, the mayor concluded his press conference, looked directly at Mr. Paybarah and said, “You are a disgrace.”


The Daily News' Liz Benjamin has a great zinger...

Ironically, Bloomberg once used that very word to describe...the City Council's effort to change term limits.

Actually, he said that was an "absolute disgrace." But why quibble?


In this version, he uses "disgraceful." But again, why quibble?

Asking him about overturning the term limits law is always going to make him uncomfortable. He better get used to it. It's going to haunt him throughout his campaign.

Everyone should keep asking him about that question since he's trying hard to avoid it. He will eventually answer arrogantly/obnoxiously or he will spew venom. But eventually we will get an answer! And the only answer would be detrimental to him!

oh no, Bloomie diss Azi, Azi need to stick it to Bloomberg.

Schmuckberg called Azi a disgrace, which makes him the greatest reporter in the City right now.

lmao, love the last remark.

bloomass doesn't want anyone to see what he's been up to as mayor for all these years, he has to clean house and over-turning term limits may give him the chance to do it. i still don't understand why no one has questioned him and his special interests.
now i want to know if all the Newpapers and reporters still respect him and back this piece of shit.

Thanks for posting the youtube. I went and posted this comment.


Vote Mike Bloomberg out of office!!!!! Watch my youtubes on Mike Bloomberg -- there is an entire series on term limits to my hand painted portrait turned political art poster. For Mike to say it is not a serious question shows how out of touch he is with the anger of the people for him denying us a referendum and it was a conflict of interest, yet another one by City Council to vote for us just like they voted themselves a raise & when the NYPD's starting salary was lowered!

italian girl said...

Bloomcrud, YOU'RE a disgrace!!!!

You'll get yours. You'll see. One day, when you're rotting in some posh nursing home, some nurse's aide will beat you black and blue and say you fell.

What goes around, comes around.

You're screwing us and one day we'll be screwing you.

thanks for posting this and I made this youtube in response. Your link is at top of the text portion as a homage to Queen's crap.

I have my blog suzannahbroy.blogspot.com linked in there about wishing I could run for mayor and beat mike bloomberg -- has some earthy females aspects to it as well. Deep down I must want to be a stand up comedian but this is all really upsetting

I would literally vote for a farm animal as mayor before I would pull the lever next to Bloomberg's name.

What a fucktard this shit faced piece of political dog shit he is.

linda said...

keep looking at this video and it makes me sick that this wezzel can think he can insult who the fuck he wants. the reporter sounded young and how dare BLOOMTURD tell this young person, your a disgrace. NO BLOOMASS YOUR THE FUCKING DISGRACED ONE, YOUR NOTHING TO US "REAL NEW YORKERS" so enough with the damn stupid commericals we're not dumb and falling for that. OH and using the VIEW to gain women voters "NOT"... we are the people who voted your sorry ass in and if we have a question bet your ass your going to answer it. HOLY SHIT COME TO QUEENS, if you ever insulted me that way i would go off on your ass, how dare you.

faster340 said...

You are so right Linda. Who the hell does he think he is he won't answer a question regarding term limits and insults the reporter asking the question. The more I think about this video the more incensed I get!!!

Again, not a fan of Bloomberg, but not a fan of Azi either.

Since when do you have to be a fan of a reporter to agree that he has the right to ask a question without being treated like shit?

"... it makes me sick that this wezzel can think he can insult who the fuck he wants..."

Wezzel... wezzel... I've looked this one up in 12 different dictionaries and I haven't found a citation. Either this person is a genius or a total moron. If lewd morons are voting AGAINST Bloomburg, should I vote FOR him?

The problem is this: you all bitch and moan about what a horrible guy this Bloomberg fellow is, and how you don't want him for a three-peat.

But who's your alternate? We know who you hate... who do you like? Anyone?

OGNI-HAS-BEEN HAS A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH BLOOMBERG!

steve said...

I seriously wonder if nanny gloomberg pays a staffer full time to apologize for all his whiny, snide remarks that get publicized. It does in fact seem like it would be a lot of work....

P.S.

To you anonymous, you farted:

"But who's your alternate? We know who you hate... who do you like? Anyone?"


If you'll take a minute to ever read any part this blog, you'll know that the majority of people here like Tony Avella. But honestly at this point, a stray cat would be better than the grinch.....

PizzaBagel said...

Excellent reporting by the Times, and an insightful comment from the News' Liz Benjamin. But you know what? Come November both papers will fall in line and give effusive endorsements to Bloomturd, regardless of who his Democrat opponent will be. Hey, they want don't their reporters to be snapped at by the Media Nazi ("No answer for you! Next!") if they ask a question that rankles him.

There are so many ways Bloomberg could have answered this, "For many people, the recession isn't over with, that's why they need experience leadership..."

"The people who vote for me, will be the ones who decide whether I am worthy of a third term...

Two answers off the top of my head, wow, I have a career in politics.

Linda, you don't have to correct your spelling. I knew what you were saying. Some people need to get a grip and get out once in a while.

Who cares about spelling when you're talking about Bloomsnot?

If the media at these "Press conferences" had any integrity and spine, they would leave the room when the Commissar insults them to their face like this.

They should boycott all events the Commissar attends until he PUBLICLY apologies individually to each reporter he insulted.

Then, if they have any integrity, they should pound him with questions that he doesn't want to answer. Repeatedly.

But... Didn't I start by saying "IF" these media types had any spine?

They don't. They are stenograwhores.

So, let's do the job of the press: Dump this dwarf turtle-face Commissar on November 3.

And, remember this very good news: If this freak actually believed the lies his lickspittles are trying to sell us on the inevitability of his third term, then he would be relaxed and happy to answer any and all questions.

He knows the inside polling numbers that say he will lose by a landslide - no - an avalanche! And, he knows that these appearances are all for nothing except to drain his and our money. So, it shows when he snarls at the reporters.

Let's steamroller this dwarf prick out of town on November 3.

Mayor Bum-turd can never own up to the truth and the inquisitiveness of reporters that still have a pair of balls.

Keep on responding with arrogant and coldly indifferent comments Mike...way to go!

How many votes you think you'll get by displaying that uncontrolled temper of yours?

He's gonna rant his way out of a third term. Mark my words!
