    He went low too, though (per Mrs. Obama in the article). I’d think more of him had he just laughed off the stupid comment. 
    I'm done with that.  The only way to convert tRump voters is for them to be humilated at supporting him.  The way to do that is to humiliate him.  Fuck him.
    agree. try to play nice with those people and you'll get steamrolled. the new slogan should be- "When they go low, kick them in the fucking face"
    I don't have a problem with it as long as it is the truth.  Calling tRump a fucking liar with fake hair, fake wife, fake weight, fake teeth, etc. is all true.
    Fake wife?
    Fake boobs, plastic surgery, mail order bride.  I mean come on....she hates him

    this was in reference to stop and frisk. i mean if the stats are correct (honestly don't know if they are or not but maybe in NYC they are?) is it really such a bad thing to have said it?

    If the quote was part of the larger statement, which it was, and that he later walked it back....I think it was something he should not have been saying in the position he was in.
    A number can be a number -- and if it was factual then I don't think it is something he needs to hang for, but a politician should know better than to say something like that, I think.  Certainly not a Presidential look. 
    You already shared you believed Stop and Frisk infringed upon a person's rights...and this statement was in support of that.

    We all say shit that could be used to make us look bad down the road as we change positions, learn more, etc....the danger for those in politics is that they can get the type of response some are having to hearing this now.

    I don't think many people are "falling for him." People just think he's in the middle enough to actually have a chance against Trump. Basically a Biden with more resources. And as for him being racist, sexist, and republican, hey to beat Trump, you might have to fight fire with fire.

    The problem with Bloomberg though, which was the problem with Hillary, and the problem with a lot of the current Dems, is nobody will get excited for him. They'll vote for him because they're democrats, or because they hate Trump. But unlike Obama, Trump, and Sanders, he won't have rabid supporters that can't wait to see him be president.

    But unlike Sanders and Trump, he won't have the party AGAINST HIM throughout the entire primary like Trump did in 2016, or as Sanders did then, and does now.

    Bloomberg once blamed end of ‘redlining’ for 2008 economic collapse

    Politics Feb 12, 2020 8:20 PM EST

    WASHINGTON (AP) — At the height of the 2008 economic collapse, then-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the elimination of a discriminatory housing practice known as “redlining” was responsible for instigating the meltdown.

    “It all started back when there was a lot of pressure on banks to make loans to everyone,” Bloomberg said at a forum that was hosted by Georgetown University in September 2008. “Redlining, if you remember, was the term where banks took whole neighborhoods and said, ‘People in these neighborhoods are poor, they’re not going to be able to pay off their mortgages, tell your salesmen don’t go into those areas.'”
