Today, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Michael Bloomberg publicly “endorsed” Obama in his reelection campaign for President. His rationale – Climate Change.
I know New York City is different than where I live in Virginia, but this is insanity at its finest. And I will quote Bloomberg:
And while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not be the result of it, the risk that it might be -- given this week’s devastation -- should compel all elected leaders to take immediate action.
Bloomberg chose Obama on a whim – one that cannot even be determined with a semblance of reasonability. He chose Obama who has gambled over $90 billion in green energy “investments” that have all turned out to be losing investments.
This endorsement is so ludicrous because even the Obama campaign is not touting its “record” on environmentalism as part of its overall sales pitch as to why Obama should be reelected. Where are the Obama campaign ads talking about how we can literally breathe easier because of his environmental leadership? Don’t bother looking – they aren’t any!
What is this campaign focusing on? In no particular order of importance, there have been campaign ads focusing on:
- The Economy
- Trust/Character Issues
- Libya, Middle East
- The Deficit
To name just a few. Here is Bloomberg’s assessment of Obama on these issues:
...as president, he devoted little time and effort to developing and sustaining a coalition of centrists, which doomed hope for any real progress on illegal guns, immigration, tax reform, job creation and deficit reduction. And rather than uniting the country around a message of shared sacrifice, he engaged in partisan attacks and has embraced a divisive populist agenda focused more on redistributing income than creating it.
And liberals want to call this an endorsement???
