From the Daily News:
Mayor Bloomberg said he "thought it was a joke" when NY1's Josh Robin asked yesterday if there's a "guarantee" the mayor won't seek a fourth term if he's successful in winning a third this fall.
"I couldn't believe it," Bloomberg told WOR's John Gambling during the duo's weekly radio show this morning, while stressing that he thinks Robin is "a nice guy."
While he didn't rule out the possibility when Robin posed his question, Bloomberg told said the answer "would be 'no' - N.O. Under any circumstances." (As the DN's Celeste Katz pointed out, this isn't the first time Bloomberg has been so emphatic on term limits).
"I'll work very hard for a third term, but 12 years would be quite enough," the mayor insisted.
"...I would be 71 and running. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But when I'm 71, I will have a different career. Hopefully not when I’m 67...I think there's a point at which you can't do anymore. You get tired and bored."
