Better stop him now...
From Rock Hackshaw at Room Eight:
Okay, so many of you are going to say this is a stretch, but it isn’t: come next month, and let’s say Michael Bloomberg is elected to a third term as mayor (although I hope not), what is going to prevent him from overturning the term limits law again, and legislating himself a chance at being a four-term mayor? And furthermore, who is going to stop him? Pray tell.
The initial answer is as obvious as my handsome face: nothing. The secondary answer is even more obvious than my charm and wit: no one. Nothing and no one can stop Michael Bloomberg from going for a fourth term if he were to win again next month.
Look; I don’t know much about these things, but I have been told that Bloomberg’s tenure in office, has become “the morning after the night before”. That’s when you wake up to some “bat-faced” girl or guy in your bed, and you can’t figure out what happened. (As I said, I don’t know much about these things).
You can have all the money in the world, but it cannot buy you class. A classy mayor -in Bloomberg’s position- would have returned term limits to the voters for another referendum. And that’s why I say shame on Colin Powell. And shame on Mario Cuomo for his position-take on the term-limits extension legislation. That one hurt me no end. And shame on Peter Vallone and his lame-brained kids. And the comatose Ed (Crotch)Koch too. Shame on all of you. And even Lew Fidler, Al Vann and all the spineless councilmembers who voted yes on the extension bill. And shame on all those (male and female) notables who now support “John” Michael Bloomberg. As true leaders go, they are morally bankrupt. It appears that they are all for sale. That’s not real leadership: that’s prostitution.
A true leader leads by example: always. You always stand up for things that are right. No one should mess with the spirit of true democracy when millions all over the world shed blood and/or die for it, every day of the friggin week. No one: especially a multi-billionaire mayor, who should have known better.
