He doesn't live in New York City, and he was a fiercely partisan advocate for Mitt Romney, who was rejected overwhelmingly by city voters.

Maybe next election he won't have to spend $70
million of his own money to get reelected.

He looked pretty good.

Bloomberg is the Il Duce Mussolini of Manhatten, except he can't make the trains run on time. A pint size a-hole with a super-size ego. Go ban yourself Bloomie.

From my friends that live up there that I have checked in on. They would tend to disagree with the premise of the idea that Bloomberg did well.

Especially from one friend that was here in FL for Hurricanes Charlie, Francis, and Jean.

WHO is giving Bloomberg 'high marks'?

WHAT about Christie?

oh, that's right, only democrats get 'high marks'.

And the fiasco of the marathon by Bloomberg?

Bloomberg is out of touch with the everyday person.

He lives the high life and gets his media support from his media 'friends'.

Stop the bullshit.

Bloomsberg,s crowning achievement during the recent crisis was his absence. He ventured forth a few times, only to be berated by distraught residents. His PR people probably warned him away from rubbing elbows with the little people. It is much safer to stand at the podium and mouth sweet nothings while awaiting the opportunity to impose more intrusive restrictions on the people of his little kingdom.

I gotta agree with the topix nutjobs on this one. Bloomberg can't go outin public because he is out of touch with regular people.
