Bloomberg learns money can’t buy love

Empower Wisconsin | March 4,  2020

By M.D. Kittle

Mike Bloomberg’s triumphant victory in American Samoa wasn’t enough.

The liberal billionaire presidential candidate got his Rolex cleaned on Super Tuesday, winning only the tiny U.S. territory in the South Pacific and losing whatever electoral respect he had.

So, after a mere 101 days in the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination, Bloomberg bowed out.

For the former New York mayor, it was a costly political binge not seen since the days of “Brewster’s Millions.” At least Richard Pryor’s Montgomery Brewster scored a political win with his “None of the Above” campaign.

Bloomberg had no such luck. The late-to-the-show candidate flushed $570 million on his short-lived campaign. To put that in perspective, Bloomberg spent $18 million per delegate for the scant 31 total Democratic nomination delegates he secured. 

You get the feeling Bloomberg is going to wake up drunk tomorrow at a Motel 6 looking for his pants.

Some are asking how a guy who seemed to be surging in the polls, with a personal war chest that horrified frontrunners in the crowded field, could fail so miserably, so completely.

The answer is simple: Dems just weren’t in to him.

And, really, what’s to love?

We’ve learned a lot about Mike Bloomberg. Or, in many cases, have been reminded what made the New York liberal so unlikable.

The party shifter (a Democrat turned Republican turned Independent turned born-again Democrat) has a long record of saying awful things. Shortly after he began to rise in the polls, clips of Bloomberg insulting farmers, women, the LGBTQ community, the Royal Family, just to name a few, began emerging. Many went viral.

In other surfaced videos, the also-ran claimed he was saving poor people from themselves through his soda tax in New York City, and insisted the best thing sick, old people could do for the health care system is die.

Endearing, Bloomberg was not.

As National Review’s Kyle Smith notes, exit polls taken in South Carolina showed Bloomberg with a 66 percent disapproval rating. The latest Marquette University Law School poll tracked Bloomberg’s favorability rating at 35 percent, 2 percentage points lower than his unfavorable number. He was the only Democratic candidate with upside down favorable ratings.

Mike Bloomberg just learned a very costly lesson, that money can’t buy you love. It sure didn’t buy the billionaire many votes.
