    Is Bloomberg Wrecking His Own Agenda?

    Why Mike Bloomberg's gun control ads backfired

    "Michael Bloomberg is so pleased with the sound of Michael Bloomberg's own voice that he simply cannot help but tell voters what to do, even when doing so harms the causes he supports."

    Let's hope it is true, and that Bloomberg does for the Second Amendment what Obama did for the firearms and ammunition industry.

    Bloomie is everything that people complained about Mitt Romney, but with Libtards that passes as normal.

    The majority of the active voters of NYC, perhaps.

    The majority of active voters are mindless , illiterate, bottom feeders who vote for the give-aways and entitlements that the likes of the Bloombergs promise from the taxpayers pockets. When he runs out of other people's money, Bloomie will still be a billionaire then we'll see what he does for the unwashed masses.

    Being one of the richest men in the United States, Bloomberg bought his election.

    As for his anti-gun stance, I say let him keep up the rhetoric.

    Let ALL of the democrats keep spewing their anti-gun threats and see what happens in 2014.

    It's kinda hard to tell exactly how Bloomberg's ad's are affecting the masses... I guess we will see when gun control legislation comes up for a vote again. Or in 2014....
    Stop whining and go make a difference!

    From the article:

    These senators probably thought a hell of a lot longer about the consequences of their gun control vote than the mayor did. The fact that they chose to vote against the measures should probably have suggested that the mayor might have been misreading the political tea leaves of North Carolina, Arkansas, and Louisiana.


    This pretty much sums it up.

    NYC thinks it is the dog, when it is merely the tail. This should be an expensive lesson learned for Bloomberg, but arrogance seldom yields to logic.

    "The mayor of New York City is running ads again me, because I oppose President Obama's gun-control legislation. ... I'm Mark Pryor. And I approve this message because no one from New York or Washington tells me what to do. I listen to Arkansas."

    Apparently when you buy your votes ("buy" = influencing votes by spreading large sums of money around in various ways), you stop listening to the electorate. Bloomie is a glaring example of the arrogance which sadly infects too many people who are extremely wealthy.

    because the media like his message, why else?
    Gun control, the ability to hit your target
