Bloomberg under siege at chaotic debate debut, as Warren attacks field in bid to revive campaign
Fox News ^ | 02/20/2020 | Gregg Re

Amy Klobuchar asked Pete Buttigieg if he was calling her “dumb.”

Bloomberg shut down Bernie Sanders by quipping that “the best-known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses.”

The Democrats’ showdown Wednesday night in Las Vegas repeatedly put Bloomberg in his primary rivals’ crosshairs as the surging billionaire made his debate-stage debut. But the conflagration quickly expanded into an all-out melée and easily the most aggressive debate of the nomination season to date, as each of the candidates took sharp and often personal shots at one another.

The fight started out white-hot when, in her first turn at the microphone, Warren asserted that she would support whoever wins the nomination, but warned that Democrats “take a huge risk if we just substitute one arrogant billionaire for another.” …

I’m all for the idiots showing everyone how ridiculous they all are,
but this is just a pathetic display of petty infighting
and attacks on success.

Bloomberg has brought out the worst in the democrat hate mentality on American success.

Even if this were a pro wrestling meet and they were wrestlers trash-talking each other in the run-up to a bout in the ring, it’s just a throwaway line. Ultimately, it comes down to whether Democrats want private industry abolished. Since Bloomberg represents private industry and Warren represents state ownership of private industry, and this distinction came out in the debate, I expect Bloomberg crushed Warren among people who don’t think the Soviet Union is the best economic model for the country. Democrats like to virtue signal, but they really like their high-paying private sector jobs. For people who want Soviet communism, they don’t need a female version of Bernie when the original is alive and kicking. Maybe Warren gained a few points, but she gained them at the expense of Bernie, not Bloomberg.

Well, Lieawatha certainly moved up a peg or two in MNSHO.

She keeps it up she may rise all the way up to 0.

I was thinking today as I either muted or fastforwarded the plethora of minimike ads and one in particular with him and BO schmoozing each other....

How long before the bon bon crowd and non working daytime TV stiffs tire of seeing that shrimp on the tube more than the show they are watching....

Overexposure is also a known killer....

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., pressed Mike Bloomberg to release women from non-disclosure agreements ... LOL

Warren got in some really powerful jabs in there.

And since I don’t like Bloomberg at all, here’s some advice for Liz: At the next debate, mention that Harvey Weinstein also used nondisclosure agreements to silence women.

Whoa. This looks like Bloomie’s Little Bighorn.
I wasn’t able to watch any of the debate, but from that clip, it doesn’t look like Bloomie did much to advance his campaign.

Imagine going your entire life harassing women at the workplace, then getting gang-raped at the Democrat debate.

I watched the whole debate. Bloomberg got clobbered. Even Slow Joe landed a few good punches.

It amazes me that Bloomberg was so obviously unprepared. Most of the time he looked confused and dazed.

Maybe his prep team was afraid to ask him any really hard questions.

Prepper: Mr. Mayor, are you the best candidate ever?
Bloomberg: Yes I am.
Prepper: Excellent answer, sir. That should do it.

Bloomberg would have done much better staying out of the debates.

Democrats attack wealth, unless it was obtained in politics.

I am wondering why Bloomberg fought so hard to get into the debate at all. He was doing great in the polls just running his slick TV ads all over the place. He has enough money not to appear in any debate and still buy all the TV time he needs.

With his diminutive size and natural born Boston and adopted New York nastiness, minimike comes across as an obnoxious Napoleonistic tool.

He is definitely the tiny nerd that YOU spared while growing up only to have him age, be somewhat successful then get pleasure telling YOU to screw off, while pandering (or setting up) those that tormented him in early life.

Like lieawatha said, why trade in one obnoxious billionaire for another...She left out that at least PDJT has some personality.

If we are lucky, the rest of the crowd will pick up on the non disclosure issue that lizzie pushed his buttons with ... You know like the PDJT ‘Battle Cry’ is tax reports etc etc

I don’t think Bloomberg was unprepared; there is no way to prepare to defend all the baggage he has.

The problem is he is looking at the long game (November 2020 against Trump) while the others are still focused on getting on the ballot itself - so they were much more focused on the primaries and caucuses than he was.
