Mayor Bloomberg: ‘I Have My Own Army’
by Hunter Walker

In a speech at MIT last night to discuss the packed sweepstakes to build a tech campus in New York City, Mayor Bloomberg said he prefers City Hall to the White House. Almost immediately after Mayor Bloomberg dampened recent speculation he’s eyeing a White House bid, he added fuel to the fire by explaining why a mayor would be the best person for the job.

Mayor Bloomberg’s recent criticism of President Obama for allowing the debt reduction Supercommittee to fail led many political tea leaf watchers to believe he’s eyeing a potential White House bid. To the dismay of those who hope he’ll mount presidential campaign, Mayor Bloomberg began his speech last night by discussing why City Hall is just fine by him.

“I have my own army in the NYPD, which is the seventh biggest army in the world. I have my own State Department, much to Foggy Bottom’s annoyance. We have the United Nations in New York, and so we have an entree into the diplomatic world that Washington does not have,” Mayor Bloomberg said.

I’ll be really glad when this incredibly smug and arrogant guy is no longer Mayor. Of course, they’ll just replace him with another Wall Street corporatist billionaire. I’m willing to bet that once the right-wing has gotten over Newt Gingrich (he seems to be the next flavor of the month now that they’re done with Herman Cain), Bloomberg (and, God forbid, Jeb Bush) will announce their bid for the 2012 Presidency early next year.
