    Bloomberg Lost, But He May Still Get What He Wanted

    What he wanted, supposedly, is to defeat Bernie Sanders.

    Do you believe it? Bernie is now looking to regroup after an unexpected setback. The Democratic party is unified behind Biden. If beating Bernie was the objective--mission accomplished. Was that really the ultimate objective?

    The objective is to defeat Trump and save this great nation from the authoritarians who support him.

    I know that Bernie is not well liked by a lot of Dems. He is not really a Dem and until he first ran in 2016, not many knew much about him. He has not gained the black vote and though he has young supporters they are not known for getting to the poles. So we will see. Joe made a comeback maybe Bernie will, but what is real it will be either Bernie or Biden against Trump.

    Ridiculous. Trump represents his donors, who are American businessmen. You guys were perfectly fine with Steyer, Yang, and Bloomberg, all billionaire businessmen seeking the Presidency. Your system is going to be owned by these men long after Trump is gone.

    Bloomberg is the Democrats sugar daddy; he's the single biggest financial contributor to the party every year. So it makes sense that daddy had to get involved when it looked like an outsider had a real chance at becoming the nominee.

    I'm not sure that plays. I suspect Bloomberg hates Bernie's ideas even more than his personal feelings for DJT.
