Murdy Rupert vying for Bloomberg

NYT | Jan 23, 2016

Michael R. Bloomberg has instructed advisers to draw up plans for a potential independent campaign in this year’s presidential race. His advisers and associates said he was galled by Donald J. Trump’s dominance of the Republican field, and troubled by Hillary Clinton’s stumbles and the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on the Democratic side.

Why not go all out and let Rupert Murdoch chair the advisory committee?

Last August – 2025

CNN Money: Rupert Murdoc wants Michael Bloomberg to run for President

Who would media mogul Rupert Murdoch like to see on the ballot in 2016? Apparently Michael Bloomberg.

Now

Now he acts allegedly surprised. Never mind he was begging Bloomberg to run in August.
He should be ecstatic about it. Or has the media mogul changed his frugal mind?

Crazy summer haze, and 2016 dreaming

Sometimes you just couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried. Hillary cut short her Hamptons va-k by running out to campaign amid groans even from her left wing cheerleaders about her email scandal. Morning Joe must be on anti-depressants.

Maybe she’ll have to re-reintroduce herself, again?

Rupert Murdoch, harping over Trump’s candidacy, floats an invitation for billionaire Michael Bloomberg to jump into the race.

Bloomberg — greatest mayor. What did I miss? So Rupert immediately backs off a little to mention Guiliani. Still it caused a blowback. Is that an admission on the debate?

Not good enough, he adds he didn’t say he’d vote for him. I bet a smart, wealthy guy like Rupert Murdoch always recommends a candidate he would not vote for. Besides, a Bloomberg could detract support from Jeb not Trump. Rupert had too much sun.

While Hillary cut her fundraising vacation short to head West hoping to strike political gold, opposed to fool’s gold, for her campaign. Because come Friday she will be addressing the DNC in Minneapolis. Meantime, all hands on deck trying to explain away her servergate scandal. Referring to her not-so-private email scandal, NYT reports:

“We do think people have questions about this,” said Jennifer Palmieri, a spokeswoman for the campaign. “It’s a very confusing topic, and I think as you’ve seen over the last couple of weeks, we have changed our strategy in that we are trying to do more education.”

Yes, the people need educated. Lecture voters on linguistic spin. Works for Obama.

Her plan now seems to be buy enough young people with her college funding schemes. Then make sure to remind women of their reproductive voting power at all points between. With those two, and pandering to a few others, she hopes to keep her 2016 boat afloat. But the bilge pumps are working double duty these days.

It’s about time for another reinforcement from Bubba about her bonafides. The anointing doesn’t seem to be going as smoothly as expected. And Bernie was just a distraction to make voters think there is a choice involved. His circus road tour only leads back to Hillary. She’s just as far left as he is anyway. But don’t educate the people on that.

Maybe Hillary should have stayed in that cocoon in the Hamptons where even they do not believe her but still believe in her. (along with her Wall Street pals)
