BYE, BYE BLOOMBERG?


From Business & Media Institute:

With what appears to be a devastating election looming for his party, is President Obama attempting to follow in the footsteps of one of his predecessors and moderate toward the center?

Not if choosing Pete Rouse to replace chief of staff Rahm Emanuel is any indication, according to CNBC’s Larry Kudlow. On the Oct. 1 broadcast of “The Call,” CNBC Washington correspondent John Harwood predicted Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner wasn’t going anywhere, but Obama would take a pro-business tack with the leadership of Department of Commerce.

However, Kudlow, citing a “deep political insider,” had a different forecast.

“The Commerce thing is a great idea and you're probably going to be right, but I know that you don't hear this,” Kudlow said. “But I had dinner last night with a deep political insider who told me that Michael Bloomberg is the next Treasury secretary. I heard that. All I'll say is this is a serious insider who said the deal has been done and that Bloomberg is the next Treasury secretary.”

If true, Bloomberg is an interesting choice, but he’s hardly a conservative.


If true, I'm throwing a fucking party!

Thanks, Suzannah.

It would be a pleasure to see him away from the Mayor's office, but I can't imagine why he would do it. What would he accomplish by becoming Treasury Secretary?

Who takes over if he leaves? The City Council Speaker? Or one of the Deputy Mayors?

Please, please, please, let this be true. What a great gift to NYC to get rid of the little emperor. I just hope Christine (slush fund) Quinn isn't the next mayor.

Why would Bloomberg take a job with a lame duck jackass president ?
This is gonna be a bigger asskicking then the Carter/Regan election.
The people are fed up
BTW this up-coming Lame duck session that will follow may be the most destructive in US history.

Because if he saves the economy like he's been bragging, then he'll run against Obama.

I think Bloomie would like to get a taste of Washington to decide if he wants to run for President. It always helps if you are an insider.

My YouTube response -- Bloomberg going to The White House instead of jail.

Rewind: Steve Rattner Mike's money manager had a job at The White House and he thought he would never get busted for his role in the pension fund scandals. He was wrong.

In my opinion Bloomberg is guilty of a lot of things including not declaring his campaign expenses which can carry jail time. Watch my tube.

Someone needs to learn what it means to be a "lame duck" president.

And someone else needs to step away from the you tube and the interwebs as a whole.

Where's the party? Where do we meet to celebrate that turtle faced bitch's departure from a city he has transformed into his own business park? Please make this a reality!!!

I thought the only way we would get rid of him is if someone drove a stake through his heart.

According to the Post, he's denying that he will accept the position. But he denied that he would overturn term limits and run for a 3rd term, too.
