Michael Bloomberg hints anew at White House run

Michael Bloomberg hints anew at White House run

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg gave a strong indication of his displeasure with the presidential race Thursday night and dropped hints about his thinking on a White House run of his own.

At a book party his foundation hosted for columnist Peggy Noonan at his foundation in New York, Bloomberg called the campaign "a race to the extremes." Instead of trying to fix the country's institutions, candidates "are trying to exploit" them, a transcript of the event quotes him as saying.

The list of problems is long but, "The actual solutions that Americans seek have been in short supply," he said, citing wage stagnation, "American retreat" and "a corrupt, gridlocked, and broken two party system that answers to lobbyists and special interests instead of the American people."

That is why, he continued, "you see the current candidates out there doing well, and not the conventional ones."

The former mayor suggested to the crowd that he had a sense of what he'd do, were he to run.

And his final comments on the matter had the sound of a campaign speech, even if it wasn't.

"From my time in both business and government, I know that you don't solve problems by pointing fingers, or making pie-in-the-sky promises," he said.

"You solve them by bringing people together around common goals, promoting innovation, demonstrating independence, and recognizing that compromise is not a bad word.

"We will have a very bright future - but only if we build it together."

BLOOMBERG: "Corrupt, gridlocked, and broken two party system that answers to lobbyists and special interests".
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, at a book party in Manhattan last night at Bloomberg Philanthropies for Peggy Noonan, “The Time of Our Lives,” making his most extensive remarks yet on why he might run as a third-party candidate: “Peggy has been writing quite a bit about the campaign, ... which really has been a race to the extremes. And she wrote so eloquently last week that candidates sense that ... America has lost faith with in its institutions. But instead of fix it, they are trying to exploit it. And the problems that we face are very real ... wage stagnation at home. American retreat around the world. And a corrupt, gridlocked, and broken two party system that answers to lobbyists and special interests instead of the American people.”

MARK CUBAN: Bloomberg should run for president

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thinks fellow billionaire Michael Bloomberg would be a positive addition to the 2016 presidential race.

"I'd like to see him run. I think he'd bring a different perspective," Cuban said during a Tuesday interview on WABC's "The Rita Cosby Show."

Cuban ... said he would encourage Bloomberg to run because the media mogul could help focus the race on substantive policy issues:

I'm not ready to pick a candidate yet or endorse anybody. But I certainly would encourage him to run … to see if it changes the tone of the debate. … If he can make it so that we're actually debating issues and looking for details on where they stand on issues, and getting into minutia in some cases, I think if he can drive that, then that would be a huge benefit.

Bloomberg Confirms He is Considering a Run for President

Michael Bloomberg confirms he’s definitely thinking about running for president.

Story Posted Here

Bloomberg told the Financial Times in an interview he is “looking at all the options,” which only tells us he might do it. “I find the level of discourse and discussion distressingly banal and an outrage and an insult to the voters,” he said. He would need to get started soon, he said, as early as March. “I’m listening to what candidates are saying and what the primary voters appear to be doing,” he said. C40_Paris_2015_Seattle_Times.jpg

This would certainly add another obstacle to a race that has seen plenty of unexpected turns already.

We NEED true fiscally conservative, and socially responsible people in federal office.  Plain and simple. It's socially responsible to balance the federal budget and pay off the federal debt within ten years.

Michael Bloomberg can get the job done.
