Mayor Bloomberg of New York City came out in favor of the candidacy of Barack Obama for president of the United States of America. The former Democrat who switched to the Republican party now has switched back to the Democratic party for some key reasons. “Our climate is changing. And while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not be the result of it, the risk that it might be–given this week’s devastation– should compel all elected leaders to take immediate action.”
He noted that the Romney of the 1990s might have gotten his vote. “In the past he has taken sensible positions on immigration, illegal guns, abortion rights and health care–but he has reversed course on all of them.”
He did blast Obama for focusing on “redistributing income.” I take it that means he wants wealthy folk like Bloomberg to get along with $970,000 instead of their deserved one million. Raise income tax from 36% to 39%– the end of free enterprise in America!
