Bloomberg Decries Partisanship as He Dumps $110 Million into Liberal Coffers
These days, the political atmosphere has become so fever-pitched that it’s not hard for politicians to become a parody of themselves. Climate change extremists are crying “the end is near” even though their last handful of predictions has fallen flat. Politicians are saying they care about American workers while opposing the industries that employ them.
It seems modern politics has no shame.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg often pitches himself as a reasonable moderate, but it turns out he is not beyond this kind of laughable hypocrisy either.
Over the weekend, Bloomberg launched a $5 million nation-wide advertising campaign backing Democrats. This brings his total support for the Dems to a whopping $110 million this cycle.
Incredibly, Bloomberg simultaneously decries partisanship while calling on voters to stand behind Democrats this midterm. In one of his latest ads, he says:
“I’ve never been a particularly partisan person. I’ve supported candidates from both sides, but at this moment we must send a signal to Republicans in Washington that they have failed to lead, failed to find solutions, and failed to bring us together,” Bloomberg says in the ad, the first of three national campaigns in which he appears. “That’s why I’m voting Democratic. America is the greatest nation on Earth, and for all our sakes, we must start becoming the United States of America once again.”
Bloomberg also took to Twitter with this message:
“On Election Day, we must tell Republicans in Washington that they have failed to lead, failed to find solutions and failed to bring us together – and that we won’t stand for it. That’s why I’m voting Democratic.”
So….. I’m not coming to you as a partisan Democrat but please vote Democrat. Got it.
Remember, his spending has reached $110 million this cycle, a significant number for someone who is not particularly partisan.
Also, notice the latest slew of ads feature Bloomberg front and center speaking to the American people. Can you say potential presidential bid?
With that in mind, let’s remember Bloomberg wants to speed up the end of coal plants around the country and institute a carbon tax, not to mention he has given tens of millions of dollars to support the efforts of the extreme environmental Sierra Club.
Those aren’t bipartisan policies, and they’re certainly not good for American energy workers.
