Next Stop 2020

Already voted for Mike Bloomberg for President. Wrote his name in. 2016. He’s making noise about running in 2020. Too little too late? Think so. Frank Bruni’s column in Sunday NYTimes outlined traits a Democrat candidate would have to possess to beat Trump. Larger than life celebrity, toughness, centrist, unifier, connects with white middle America as well as people of color, deep personal pockets. The only person to fit that bill? Oprah.

Bloomin’ Mike!

Michael Bloomberg reportedly putting the band back together for a 2020 run. NY Post today. Has he been reading my blog? Yes! Please run, Mike! A New York billionaire independent-minded businessman. He’s mulling joining the fray as a Democrat. Why not? He’s already investing $80 million to provide a counterbalance to the ineptitude of the Republicans in governing. Admittedly, it’d be hard to get a short Jewish almost-80-year-old elected. But. Biden and Bernie are pondering another plunge. So. Hey. He’s already gotten my vote. In 2016.

Drop the Mike, Mike!

This is why I wrote in Mike Bloomberg for President in 2016. Wouldn’t it have been refreshing to have this New York billionaire businessman in the White House? Country before party. Solving problems with intelligence, long term strategic vision, and heart. Loved him as Mayor. But. Americans are probably not ready to be so united and smart.

Mike is giving $80 million and here’s “Why He’s Supporting Democrats in 2018”

Better Places

If we are all still here after Saturday, we can rejoice in the emergence of Mike Bloomberg’s Global Business ForumThe New York billionaire who should be President. Don’t blame me. I voted for him! Rational. Professional. Ethical. Brilliant. And. He really does have a macro economic vision. Unlike. Well. That other New York billionaire (ish).

Then. Find Conan O’Brien’s trip to Israel. On this Jewish New Year. An hilarious and heartbreaking synopsis of what a world at peace could be. Good people on both sides of the Wall. And beyond. Must see.

Eclipped

Solar Eclipse 2017. Truncated at 70% in NYC. It was basically a sunny turned gray day non-event. But lots of people were wearing weird glasses in Central Park.

Movie filmed on our block on election day last November. Just released. Not doing so good. The Only Living Boy in New York. Callum Turner. Cynthia Nixon. Probably left on the cutting room floor.

Meanwhile, we are saved! Mike Bloomberg is assuming the helm. Snatching the tiller from Hillary & Co.

Second Thoughts

Marine LePen came in second to 39-year old Macron. A former investment banker, he married his 24-years older former high school teacher. What? Yup. Stock market likes him better. Run-off will result in an outsider running France either way. Former Prez Obama emerges at the University of Chicago. The guy I voted for President, Mike Bloomberg is still my first choice.

Rory McIlroy tied the knot at Ashcroft Castle in Ireland. He wasn’t ready with Caroline and dumped her the day the invites went out. This time he showed up to wed a PGA friend.

Voted!

red-tree-lakeOn a perfect autumn day. Strolled around the Lake. Brought ballots to the Post Office. Voted! For whom? Hint. Stayed true to my initial instinct. Wanted a billionaire businessman who had success in both private and public sectors. It was before the tectonic announcement last June 16 of that other so-called buffoon/tycoon. So. Yes. I wrote in. Guess whopark-tree-line

Dr. Husband. Well. He voted for her. I’m sure. TTSD almost over.
