Mike Bloomberg: Breaking the Millionaire Billionaire Mold

No doubt Bernie Sander will continue to rail on against the evils of millionaires and billionaire and greedy corporations that forever work against the interest of not only average Americans, but also the very nation itself, just as President Trump puts his personal interest above all else.

Yet, there are always remarkable exceptions to every rule, even when it comes to billionaires. Never forget, Democrats, that perhaps the greatest Democrat and champion of the American people who ever lived, and one whom his rich peers labeled a traitor to his class was one President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the billionaire of his day.

It may turn out that Mike Bloomberg won’t quite rise to the level of an FDR, but under any standard Mike will surely stand much closer as president to a Roosevelt than a Trump. And the nation desperately needs a man of Mike’s experience, competence and toughness to both defeat Donald John Trump and repair the severe damage that he has inflicted upon the fabric, ideals and security of our very special nation.

Indeed, nowhere on the political horizon is there at present a man like Mike Bloomberg, one capable of binding up the nation’s grievous wounds and making it whole again. Surely in this instance defeating the evil Trump is far more important than holding Mike’s wealth against him. Mike’s goodness, competence and heart will certainly trump any negative wealth factor big-time at this very critical instance.
