    Bloomberg's latest

    How do you think this will play out politically?

    Gun control ads have Democrats worrying - John Bresnahan and Reid J. Epstein - POLITICO.com

    Gun control ads have Democrats worrying

    By JOHN BRESNAHAN and REID J. EPSTEIN | 5/7/13 4:59 AM EDT

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s aides met recently with staffers of New
    York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to warn them: Targeting vulnerable Democrats
    like Arkansas’s Mark Pryor on gun control could backfire on the party,
    several sources told POLITICO.

    “If the Democrats want to lose control, just go and support people killing each other with handguns on the streets, and the handguns in the hands of criminals and people with mental problems,” Bloomberg said at press conference Tuesday, as reported by Capital New York. Bloomberg continued: “If the Republicans want to win the Senate, what I would do is, I’d go out there and I’d say, ‘We support the Second Amendment, but we don’t want guns in the hands of criminals and people with mental problems. Period. That’s just dangerous. Whether you’re a gun owner or not.’”

    FWIIW, I think his dishonor from NYC is making a tactical mistake / misread of the politics of other States.

    Were I one of the targeted politicians, like Pryor, I would switch parties, and guarantee Blooming idiot that whatever he backed, I would oppose every day in every way.

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    FWIW, I agree with you. He's pouring money into Colorado protecting some of his minions from recall, and it is not setting well with the locals. Particularly after one of his minions (Morse) whined about out-of-state money throwing a monkey wrench in the marijuana wars. Morse = Two Faced goober jut like Bloomberg.

    Sounds like the demoncrats cant control Bloomberg. He has become a rogue caring only about his agenda.

    He reminds me of the Captain (Humphrey Bogart) in the Movie Cain Mutiny.

    I know LOONBERG was a Republican when he initially ran for mayor of NYC and then became a Independent. Has he crossed over to Democrat now?? What's next?? He he reviving the Wig Party next?

    Loonberg is a "rich kid" with no wife and apparently no life outside of the office he bought for himself.

    He fails to separate the agendas of blue collar dems from pseudo commie socialists from tree hugging peace sign wearing hippies. Once they (Bloomberg, Barry Sortoro, Feinswine) start going after the blue collar dems, they will trip all over themselves. I say, let them have at it. Infighting can only strengthen our base.

    Damnorats:

    I must agree with you, Sir. It is useless, because they don't listen to their constituents. Childish? Maybe so, but no one has any difficulty understanding me or the points I make, excepting some rare oddities.

    2014 will be the proof out here. Unfortunately, the other party hasn't yet announced any candidates.

    I was under the impression that it was a no-no to get into partisan politics in this forum.
