What an amazing mess the Democrats are in. I thought that all the billions that Mr. Bloomberg was shelling out would get him nowhere. Now it looks as if it will get him the nod. After all, the top players, Bernie, Mrs. Warren, and Mr. Buttigieg, names who rode high a few hours ago, will be washed out soon enough.
Sen. Biden, whose career was killed dead by his son’s greed, will not have much to show for years of campaigning.
So, who will be left? A man with billions to play with, who does not mind playing games with the voters, a man who tells his employees what to eat each day, will be able to tell us all what to eat day-by-day.
It will be a convention in which money talks very loudly.
So it looks from here, anyway.
Now, please don’t get me wrong. I admire Bloomberg.
He fought in a super tough league and did well for a long, long time.
Does he have a program? Not as far as I can tell. Yes, he claims to have given a lot of jobs to workers and maybe he did. But how could he have done that and also saved the taxpayers of New York City billions? Come to it, does any Democrat have a program besides claiming to do what Trump did, only more of it?
The Democrats have been running for years now on gusts of rage about Trump.
This was their alternative energy source: give us the name Trump and we’ll make it into treason and perjury and lying of every kind, not to mention "abuse of process," whatever that might mean.
None of these worked thanks to the power and cunning of the real Trump haters and the basic unlikability of the Democrats.
Now we’re near the end of the election runway and we cannot see much more runway for the Democrats.
But can Mr. Bloomberg’s billions build an emergency runway for last minute campaigning? Maybe yes, maybe no.
