Battle of the Presidential Billionaires

Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corp., parent company of hated Fox News thinks that one billionaire in the presidential race isn’t good enough. He tweeted out his desire for another to enter. And the other billionaire is none other than Michael “Nanny State” Bloomberg.

Is this the beginning of a draft Bloomberg campaign? I doubt it, but only time will tell, and it’s hard to say whether Murdoch was serious or not as he tweeted: “With Trump becoming very serious candidate, it’s time for next billionaire candidate, Mike Bloomberg to step into ring. Greatest mayor.”

Now right off the bat, you would have to question the sanity of Murdoch by saying Bloomberg was the “Greatest mayor.” I understand Murdoch and Bloomberg are good friends but calling him the greatest mayor, and thinking he wouldn’t be as progressive with the nation as he was with New York City, are a little far-fetched.

Murdoch failed to elaborate in any of his tweets for which party Bloomberg would run, although it seems to me he would be better suited to displace Hillary Clinton than any Republican, save for a few progressive establishment types.

Murdoch went back to Twitter to explain that although he was at odds with a lot of the “nanny state” policies Bloomberg enacted as mayor, he reiterated that along with Rudy Giuliani, Bloomberg made New York City the greatest. read more
