Changed the rules for him again? Didn't he get to serve 3 terms as mayor of NY when nobody else could?
Do we really worship cash in this country,That Much? I guess I don't really need to even ask that, do I?
Why don't the Dems just cancel the primaries and APPOINT him the nominee?
This will gaurantee a Trump win because the voters will stay home in disgust at the obvious corruption.
That is probably the point.

The people want him to run. Why don't you cry about it.

What happened to all the "rules" about threshold numbers of donations that kept Tulsi and Tom Steyer out of the earlier debates? Why the changes to accommodate Bloomberg specifically?
It seems he's being groomed to be the inevitable nominee. How long before the superdelegates all proclaim him unstoppable?
Don't you even care about an "illusion" of fairness or are you just about your guy winning no matter how.
I gaurantee if Bloomberg wins the nomination unfairly he will LOSE to trump and you can BANK ON THAT.
Millions of otherwise loyal Dems will be disgusted and stay HOME.

Whatever. Bernie changed all the rules and now his loyalists are crying that Bloomberg was smart enough to play by them. He sounds like a winner to me.

Someone should make a Meme of Bloomberg standing on his wallet behind the podium at the Democrat debate.

Bruce finally gets a billionaire republican candidate of his own to vote for.

Congratulations, Bruce!

You got your Hillary Clinton 2020!

"Bloomberg Campaign Says It's a Two-Man Race for the Nomination" ... says, Bloomberg News.

I guess Buttigig, Klobo, Biden, and Warren have been disappeared.

#4 Will he sound like a winner when Trump whips his ass because all "the bros" stay home or VOTE FOR TRUMP? Bernie or bust 2020. NO COMPROMISE NO SURRENDER.

Bernie should run as an indie if Bloomberg buys the nom.

Bernie would never do that.

Bernie should run as an "indie" because that's what he is.

So to counter an old white racist billionaire Republican who used to be a Democrat, let's run an old white racist billionaire Democrat who used to be a Republican. Brilliant.

You really want to make Democrats cry, don't you.

If Bernie ran as an Independent, Trump is guaranteed a second term.

I'm just saying he's not a Democrat. I find it odd that he runs as one.

Now you're getting it.

/sarcasm

But in Bloomberg's defense, and it kills me to say it, if we're expected to ignore Elizabeth Warren having been a Reagan and Bush voting republican who held some disgusting views 20 some years ago, Bloomberg deserves the same.

But if you want to put that question to the both of them, and ask them what brought about their change in political thinking I think that would be a useful question to ask.

I said from day 1 that the Dems are the party of the 0.0001% ruling over the broke losers in society by promising them free stuff. We constant see the Dems run to protect their rich masters - even the SALT caps show the Dems to not really be interested in the rich paying their 'fair share'. Bloomberg just removes all pretenses. Most of the Libs here are suffering from cognitive dissonance currently - I suspect after Warren, Biden, and Klob drop out, they will warp into the hive mind that Bloomberg is the 'good kind of billionaire' despite his fortune deriving from selling services to Wall Street.

#19 What do the repubs offer,The "broke losers", huh? Early death from preventable disease? A life of being exploited by rich ashholes at unliveable wages while they steal all the gains in productivity?
What YOU call free stuff I call the least the rich can do for STEALING productivity from EVERYONE ELSE.
Frankly, it's the least they can do given that in a more courageous Society they would be staring down the GUILLOTINE.

A job so you are no longer a broke loser.

Before I answer that - you need to answer me first. Do you believe in open borders or do you believe the should not have illegal immigrants? I ask as anyone that believes in open borders surrenders their right to complain about low wages.

Being new to a battleground state I have to ask, are political spam calls multiple days a time, ever day, normal? This ---- gets old fast.

March 2019: "In the latest resurfaced video from last spring, the three-time New York City mayor referred to transgender people as "he, she or it" and suggested that Democratic hopefuls could hurt their cause by spending time on the campaign trail addressing the rights of "some guy wearing a dress."

Blacks, Latinos, Farmers and now Transgenders. Keep on keeping on Bloomberg. Let's see if his past comments are brought up tonight.

Tiny Mikey's debate demands: No standing allowed. All candidates to sit on height-adjustable chairs.

Bloomberg go away. Or spend you giant campaign chest of charity and not on stupid media advertisements which nobody believes anyway.

#22 Open borders are probably totally unworkable do undermine the working class. I will concede that point. YOUR TURN.
