Michael Bloomberg Proves Himself to be a Fool and Should Resign

Michael Bloomberg should resign from office. He has proven himself to be a fool.It is truly stunning that Bloomberg’s initial reaction to the car bomb in Times Square was to blame tea party activists, not Islamic terrorists.In Bloomberg’s own words:

Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone.”If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” he said.”There is no evidence here of a conspiracy, there is no evidence that it’s tied into anything else. It looks like an amateurish job done by at least one person,” he told Couric.

Let’s get this straight. New York has seen two terrorist attacks by Muslims — the original World Trade Center bombing and the September 11th attacks.New York has never seen an attack by tea party activists.But Michael Bloomberg’s initial gut reaction was that it the attempted bomber was probably “somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something.”It is stunning that the Mayor of New York City is more comfortable casting blame on Americans upset with government than with the most likely culprit — radical Islamists who, in fact, appear to actually be behind the bombing.Michael Bloomberg should resign.
