    2020 Democrats step up attacks to blunt Bloomberg's rise

    2020 Democrats step up attacks to blunt Bloomberg'''s rise

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidates hoping to revive their flagging campaigns increasingly took aim at Mike Bloomberg, blasting their billionaire rival for trying to buy his way into the White House and raising questions about his commitment to racial equality.

    Struggling to recover from poor showings in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden took the lead in attacking Bloomberg. Biden, the former vice president, said on ABC’s “The View” that “I don’t think you can buy an election,” while Warren took Bloomberg to task for his 2008 comments that ending redlining, a discriminatory housing practice, helped trigger the economic meltdown.

    If they're attacking him, it's because the believe he is a legit contender for the poll position.

    They do seem to way over estimate how much of America is woke, but then again I said often here last time that the left tends to not have the first ****ing clue what is going on in America, and dont want to, because they are dim immoral people who are addicted to their fantasies.

    Every Democrat in the race should be attacking Bloomberg.

    The guy is a Bush supporting Republican who spent more than a decade pushing an overtly racist policy that he defended by making even more racist remarks, only to have an epiphany and "apologize" immediately before running for President. The only reason he is running is because he is terrified of having to pay more taxes and believes he can buy his way into the White House.

    It's grotesque and I am disgusted with members of the Democratic party who are going along with it.

    I mean, whether or not they're aggressing against him on the basis of their electoral interests, he is objectively a terrible candidate:

    This guy is pure electoral poison, and there is no way in hell he's going to get Dems onside and motivated in the way he needs to in order to win, even if he manages to purchase the nomination.
